Report: House Republicans Give Tucker Carlson Producers Access To Thousands of Hours of J6 Video

Report: House Republicans Give Tucker Carlson Producers Access To Thousands of Hours of J6 Video

It is consistent to condemn the riot, and also to note that Democrats and the media have lied relentlessly about that day for political purposes. That’s my position.

The House Select Committee on the January 6 Capitol Hill riot was a made for TV movie, literally. Thousands of hours of video and thousands of pages of testimony were edited by professional Hollywood producers to create a narrative that an ugly riot, in which some people committed violence, was an attempt to seize control of the government. That narrative has been used to prosecute and imprison people who committed no violence and in some cases merely walked through open doors to the Capitol to look around and then left.

Contrast the government and media reactions to Six Months of Antifa/BLM Looting, Rioting, and Chaos. and the May 2020 Assault On The White House: 60 Secret Service Agents Wounded, President Trump Taken to Secure Bunker. Big Tech also got in the act, falsely accusing Parler of being the organizing ground for the riot and using that as an excuse to wipe Parler off the internet, when in fact most of the organizing took place on Facebook and Twitter, as we covered at the time, The claim that Parler represents some unique risk to public safety is a lie driven by politics.

It is consistent to condemn the riot, and also to note that Democrats and the media have lied relentlessly about that day for political purposes. That’s my position: the riot never should have happened, particularly as an attempt to interfere with the congressional counting of electoral votes, and the people who committed violence should be prosecuted, while at the same time acknowledging that the riot has been maliciously exploited for political purposes.

One of the most pernicious lies, that Officer Brian Sicknick was beaten to death, continues to be repeated to this day. In fact, D.C. Medical Examiner: Officer Brian Sicknick died of stroke from natural causes, not result of assault.

When the live broadcasts of J6 Committee hearings started in June 2022, I wrote, I’m Not Watching The Made-for-TV J6 Show Trial Narrated By Hoaxers, Liars, and Leakers:

There was a riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. No one other than Ashli Babbitt was killed, despite the lies repeated that several policemen were killed. The riot shouldn’t have happened, we’ve been clear about that from the start. But neither should the hundreds of violent riots by BLM. The J6 riot has been roundly condemned, but it’s been turned into a political cudgel, and that’s what this produced-for-TV prime time hearing is about.

The Committee and hearing are run by Russian-collusion hoaxers, liars, and leakers like Adam Schiff, and will be narrated by disinformation spreaders at MSNBC and elsewhere. The web of lies spread by government and mainstream liberal corporate media is so pervasive we are in a post-truth world, and key institutions like the FBI are part of that problem. Trust is gone.

Tucker Carlson has been all over the many lies about J6 and the failure of the government to release the actual unedited evidence:

Axios reports that Kevin McCarthy has given Tucker’s producers access to the video captured on Capitol Hill surveillance cameras:

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has given Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusive access to 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the Jan. 6 riot, McCarthy sources tell me.

  • Carlson TV producers were on Capitol Hill last week to begin digging through the trove, which includes multiple camera angles from all over Capitol grounds. Excerpts will begin airing in the coming weeks.

Why it matters: Carlson has repeatedly questioned official accounts of 1/6, downplaying the insurrection as “vandalism.”

  • Now his shows — “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News, and “Tucker Carlson Today” and “Tucker Carlson Originals” on the streaming service Fox Nation — have a massive trove of raw material.

Carlson told me: “[T]here was never any legitimate reason for this footage to remain secret.”

  • “If there was ever a question that’s in the public’s interest to know, it’s what actually happened on January 6. By definition, this video will reveal it. It’s impossible for me to understand why any honest person would be bothered by that.”

Axios further reports that the video footage is far more than the 14,000 previously reported, which Julie Kelly asserts would mean the government lied in court filings:

Should be interesting.

(BTW, I’m scheduled to be on Tucker Carlson Tonight this Wednesday night, hoping no news events cause me to be bumped.)

Happy Presidents’ Day!

The Twitter Files becomes the Jan 6 Files. A double feature.

Archive them for everyone to access and come to their own conclusion about the most incompetent “insurrection” ever.

Contrast J6 with Ukraine Color? Both orchestrated by CIA/FBI/Etc Both pulled off… although plenty of video to now review. I think we will finally see that more than on J6’er was killed…. although in Ukraine … the killed became national martyr. One can take a peaceful protest and with the appropriate police effort and agents, turn it into a riot. Who really fomented the riot is the key question that the Dems know.

    The fact that those pushing the narrative are curiously uncurious about why and how Capitol security failed that day is suspicious in itself. Why hasn’t there been an inquiry into that failure? Why haven’t heads rolled over it? Doesn’t a post mortem of any event require an operational review? Why are they behaving as if there’s nothing to learn from the event?

    We all know the answers to these questions.

Obviously, the Kangaroo Court wanted these tapes buried forever

    henrybowman in reply to Steven Brizel. | February 20, 2023 at 2:45 pm

    I hope Tucker is hiring. That’s a lot of material.

    And I wish a painful case of acid reflux syndrome on Nancy Pelosi’s daughter.

    “After the Democrats lose the house, then they get rid of the committee, people may lose I think interest… no one is going to care after the democrats are out of power… The Shaman did noth(ing)… What did the Shaman do? He stood there… The Shaman got how many months? 41!”

Now this along side Twitter Files should be eye opening. Too bad the J6 narrative is already set in the publics mind. But, truth begins when it puts its boots on.

I’d like for all the footage to be publicly released but I can see why McCarthy would initially limit it to Carlson and Fox news. The left hired professionals to craft a narrative using that footage and that narrative needs to be blown up by someone with a much larger reach than a random twitter account. Let Tucker do his thing and then release it all. If democrats are concerned that it shows gaps in capitol security, well… now’s the time to fix it.

What’s it called when the sequel is way better than the original?

Asking for a Live Action Dr Evil, who can’t get his rocket up.

Why do I have the impression that the legal representation of J6 defendants has been abysmal?

It seems like the lawyers fear an adequate job will torpedo their careers.

    mailman in reply to ALPAPilot. | February 20, 2023 at 1:53 pm

    I doubt it mattered who was representing these people Alpa, the judges couldn’t have given a flying fuck about the people they have been holding behind bars all this time!

    What I hope is that with the sunlight about to be applied a lot of these poor fuckers will finally get some form of justice! But as I said, I HOPE they will get justice but my fear is they are fucked regardless!

    Doesn’t pay to be an enemy of Democrats and their swamp.

    randian in reply to ALPAPilot. | February 22, 2023 at 1:22 pm

    Licensing boards have threatened J6 lawyers with disbarment, nobody wants to represent them if it means losing their license to practice law. I believe charges of “material aid to terrorists” have also been floated.

      Milhouse in reply to randian. | February 22, 2023 at 5:50 pm

      It may have been floated, but to the best of my knowledge there is no such crime. It is a crime to provide material support to designated foreign terrorist organizations. Even if one were to suppose these people were terrorists, they’re certainly neither foreign nor designated, nor even organizations. So giving them material support is not a crime, and likely can’t be.

      Also, I doubt that providing someone with legal representation, to which they’re constitutionally entitled, can be classed as material support.

My BS detector is triggering here.

Why would McCarthy ONLY give it to Tucker and his staff. Why not just release it publicly, or release it to dozens of different conservatives that are begging to do it,

This smells like RINO coverup to me. McCarthy never wanted to do it in the first place and now he’s ‘fulfilling his promise’ by releasing the videos to ONLY a single person, who will take a couple mediocre clips, make some comments about them, and then we’ll never see the rest again and McCarthy will BS about ‘oh they’ve already been released’.

I HOPE that I’m wrong. But my cynicism in the last couple years has been exactly on point, so I guess we’ll see.

    CommoChief in reply to Olinser. | February 20, 2023 at 2:39 pm

    Not quite. The revelation that 14K hours of security footage was bogus and that some 41K hours exists, a figure nearly 3x as large as DoJ claimed, is a huge item. Even if this is footage from different cameras/angles of the same events depicted in 14K hour of footage it is a problem.

    The defense is entitled to see all evidence possessed by the prosecution. The prosecution is supposed to turn it over. That includes potential exculpatory evidence. The revelation about the extent of the additional footage puts defendants in a far better position. Expect lots of motions on this that will be very damaging to the govt.

    rebelgirl in reply to Olinser. | February 20, 2023 at 4:11 pm

    I think it makes sense..that much video needs to be edited properly and presented on a national stage (forum, if you will). I think Tucker makes as much sense as anyting. After Tucker presents it, I hope then it is released fully.

    That is what McCarthy had promised. Let’s see how long it takes for Tucker to release the many videos involving FBI agent Ray Epps organizing rushes into the Capital, unlocking the doors and more. They conveniently disappeared. It would have been so much better to release them to all comers. That way it would have taken another coordinated conspiracy to cover them all up. Now we are relying on Tucker who has already demonstrated that he can be stifled. Tucker is no Mark Stein who walked away rather than agree to be censored. There are so few of them on those on this side of the pond. Just about all are partly pregnant or sometimes honest.

It is important to note the federal instigators that were not only present, but leading.

Not sure how Tucker runs his operation but hope it’s not infiltrated with Leftist says who could wreck videos

By this time tomorrow, Special Counsel Jack Smith will get a court order to Fox to give up those tapes as they fall under the jurisdiction of the scope of his investigation.

I hope they intend on providing defense attorneys with the footage to.

If there’s no reason for this footage ever to have been secret, then why do you have to be a Fox News producer to see it? Why not release it all to the public?

Allowing opposite propaganda organs to each present their version is a pale imitation of actual transparency.

    mailman in reply to Flatworm. | February 20, 2023 at 3:53 pm

    Patience grasshopper.

    If anyone is capable of killing a billion liberals with a single monologue that would be Carlson 😂 Let him do his magic of applying sanitising sunshine to the Democrat created shitshow that is J6 and then you will get tens of thousands of hours of video to watch to your hearts content.

    One reason might be that by releasing to everyone at the same time, there would be a race to be first and we know how that will end. Better that one carefully-assembled, comprehensive version be released in digestible episodes to tell the story and then open it up for others to inspect the work. There will always be challenges and the lies are unavoidable. But doing a thorough job with the first version will go a long way to controlling the narrative around the facts.

Nancy Pelosi should be strapped into a chair and forced to watch all 41,000 hours of it, fed bread and water until she’s done.

A small crew will take forever to analyze all this. McCarthy needs to put it all on a government website so EVERYONE can see it and comb through it.

Suggestion: Tucker should *immediately* hire James O’Keefe to help sort through the footage. The irony would be sweet.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has given Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusive access to 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the Jan. 6 riot, McCarthy sources tell me.
Axios further reports that the video footage is far more than the 14,000 previously reported, which Julie Kelly asserts would mean the government lied in court filings:

Maybe, but a far more likely explanation is that 41,000 is a typo. It would be a hell of a coincidence otherwise.

    Suburban Farm Guy in reply to Milhouse. | February 21, 2023 at 7:53 am

    Ever notice how ‘mistakes’ like that ALWAYS go in one direction — one that ALWAYS benefits the government and other enemies of freedom — ? Odd, eh? If they were honest mistakes it should be about 50-50

Suburban Farm Guy | February 21, 2023 at 7:54 am

They tossed flashbangs into a peaceful crowd. Antifa partnered with the Feds for a successful false flag operation. These are just a couple of the facts that Tucker will be or should be all over. Will they and others be enough to displace the false narrative that has been drummed into billions of heads for over three years now? Doubtful.

As for people not trusting Carlson, saying he is Swamp — what about all the liberals constantly trying to cancel him and his show…. That’s pretty good cover.

We will see.

Hopefully Tucker Carlson will invite all the defense attorney’s to view them.
Or are those attorneys in on the original scam?

Fat_Freddys_Cat | February 21, 2023 at 1:04 pm

I have no sympathy for any Democrats who whine about this. They could have released the footage. But no, they tried to suppress it.

Adam Schiff

Kevin McCarthy turned over Jan 6 videos to right-wing propagandist Tucker Carlson.

A man who spews Kremlin talking points. Suggests Jan 6 was a false flag. And spreads the Big Lie.

Make no mistake: This isn’t about transparency, it’s about fueling dangerous conspiracy theories.
