Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was visibly upset on Tuesday while discussing the public release of Jan. 6 Capitol surveillance footage
“With contempt for the facts, disregard of the risks, and knowing full well he was lying, lying to his audience, Fox News host Tucker Carlson ran a lengthy segment last night arguing the January 6 capitol attack was not a violent insurrection,” Schumer seethed.
“I, so many others who were here in the capitol, and millions and millions of Americans are just furious with Tucker Carlson and Kevin Mccarthy today,” the Senate Majority leader added.
Schumer continued, “And he’s going to come back tonight with another segment. Fox News should tell him not to. Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, tell Carlson not to run a second segment of lies.”

As Valiant News previously reported, Carlson released previously suppressed security footage from the grounds of the U.S. Capitol building on January 6 that purportedly shows U.S. Capitol Police officers nonchalantly escorting “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley around the Capitol complex and into the Senate chamber.
“Virtually every moment of his time inside the Capitol was caught on tape,” said Carlson of the footage. “The tapes show the Capitol Police never stopped Jacob Chansley. They helped him. They acted as his tour guides.”
“For more than two years, we have wondered why some in the crowd that day who seemed to be inciting violence were never indicted for it. We assumed these were federal agents of some sort. We still assume that,” Carlson said on his show prior to releasing the tapes.
“In fact, there were many examples of behavior that we saw in those tapes that didn’t seem to make sense. Men in civilian clothes holding doors open for protestors, escorting others through the Capitol, et cetera. We would love to know who those people were.”
