Tucker Carlson set off a political earthquake by playing previously unseen video footage.
Donald Trump had one response to Tucker Carlson playing January 6 video.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy allowed Tucker Carlson and his team to view the 41,000 hours of security camera footage from the Capitol on January 6.
Carlson claimed the footage undercut the story Democrats and the media told the public about an insurrection staged by Trump supporters.
In the video Carlson played Trump supporters can be seen peacefully and calmly walking about the Capitol.
Other footage showed Capitol Hill police officers escorting Jacob Chansley — the “QAnon Shaman” — around the building and even opening locked doors for him.

Donald Trump praised Carlson for airing the footage and poking holes in the carefully crafted political narrative Democrats and the media peddled about January 6.
“Congratulations to Tucker Carlson on one of the biggest ‘scoops’ as a reporter in U.S. history. The New Surveillance Footage of the January 6th Events sheds an entirely different light on what actually happened. The Unselect Committee was a giant SCAM, and has now unequivocally been stamped as CRIMINAL FABRICATORS OF THIS MOST IMPORTANT DAY. Pelosi & McConnell failed on security. The Police story is sad and difficult to watch. ‘Trump’ and most others are totally innocent, LET THEM GO FREE, NOW!” Trump posted on Truth Social.
Trump declared House Speaker Kevin McCarthy showed great courage allowing Carlson to show the public evidence that Democrats, the January 6 committee, and the liberal media hoodwinked the American people.
“Great courage shown by Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy in releasing the surveillance footage to Tucker Carlson so that our Country, and indeed the World, can see what really went on during the January 6th events. A whole new, and completely opposite, picture has now been indelibly painted. The Unselect Committee LIED, and should be prosecuted for their actions. Nancy & Mitch were a disaster on Security. Thank you Kevin and Tucker. FREE AT LAST!!!” Trump continued.
The job of the media is to report on things powerful people don’t want you to know.
But in the case of January 6 the press supported a news blackout to keep video evidence of what took place that day from the American people.
It was similar to how the media would not report on the fact that Republicans suspected then-CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella was the whistleblower that went to Adam Schiff about Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The Washington Post embraced the slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness” after Donald Trump took office.
But on the subject of the January 6 video footage it appears that is the liberal media’s preferred position.
