The events of January 6 have been one of the most politicized events in American history.
Democrats have used it to demonize Donald Trump and the 74 million Americans who voted for him.
Now Chuck Schumer is in total desperation mode after Tucker Carlson’s January 6 revelations.
Tucker Carlson seeks to expose the truth about January 6
When Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) became Speaker of the House, he doubled down on his promise to release all 41,000 hours of surveillance footage recorded at the Capitol on January 6.
Not long after, he announced that the footage would be given to Fox News Tucker Carlson, causing the Left to lose their minds.
This week, Carlson started to open the floodgates and began debunking claims made by the January 6 Committee over the past two years.
The evidence presented by the unedited footage would lead the public to believe that Democrats have been lying about the events of that day.
Carlson alleged that the Committee knew that Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick wasn’t murdered during the riot, but chose to tell the public otherwise.
The footage also put new scrutiny on the mystery surrounding Ray Epps – the individual who was put on the FBI’s most wanted list for his role in January 6, only to be remove the next day amidst speculation he was an FBI informant who was planted in the crowd that day – and even cleared up a rumor about Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO).
This pushed Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to make a move that makes it look like he has something to hide.
Schumer says he and other Members of Congress are “furious”
Senator Schumer took to the Senate floor to express his outrage with Carlson’s revelations, and tried his best to paint the Fox News host as a liar.
“I and so many others who were here are just furious with Tucker Carlson,” Schumer said. “With 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 that the January 6 . . . was not a violent insurrection.”
He said that Carlson’s report was “a lie pure and simple,” and condemned the most popular primetime cable news host in America for attempting to “manipulate his viewers.”
Schumer went on to say that he didn’t think he had “ever seen an anchor treat the American people and American democracy with such disdain.”
Schumer says Murdoch has a “special obligation” to intervene
Then, the Democrat Senator tried to advance the leftist censorship regime by calling on Fox News, and Fox Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch, to cease airing the January 6 footage.
“Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, tell Carlson not to run a second segment of lies,” Schumer ranted.
“Murdoch has a special obligation to stop Tucker Carlson from going on tonight [and] from letting him go on again and again and again,” the Senator added, before adding that the security of America’s “democracy” depends on Murdoch’s intervention.
The disdain for Carlson wasn’t just relegated to Democrats either, as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) expressed similar frustration.
McConnell showed support for Schumer’s outrage
The RINO Senator claimed he was concerned with “how it was depicted” on Carlson’s widely viewed show.
“It was a mistake for Fox News to depict this in a way that is completely at variance with what our chief law enforcement official here at the Capitol thinks,” McConnell claimed.
Senator McConnell was referencing an earlier statement from Capitol Police, which claimed that the officers, which security footage shows escorted protesters throughout the Capitol, opening doors for them and helping them find ways to areas that were locked, were simply using “de-escalation tactics” to try to convince them to leave the building on their own.
That statement echoed McConnell and Schumer’s sentiment that Carlson’s segment was “outrageous and false.”
Tucker Carlson is expected to continue the series of revelations in the days ahead.
