More J6 Video Clips Released, Make Tucker Carlson Look Worse Again
Carlson Liberals Wet Dream

The new video clips were provided in response to media requests regarding some of the criminal cases stemming from the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and Grassley’s close call to the rioters “adds new dissonance to Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s on-air minimization of the siege,” wrote Politico’s Kyle Cheney and Jordain Carney.
Earlier this month, Carlson featured selected clips from the more than 40,000 hours of Jan. 6 footage that Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) allowed him to access. The footage shown by Carlson largely showed nonviolent moments from that day, along with the top-rated Fox News host’s commentary that only “a small percentage” of the rioters were “hooligans” who “committed vandalism,” and claiming the “overwhelming majority” were “peaceful,” and “ordinary and meek.”
The slanted presentation by Carlson drew sharp condemnation from prosecutors, the family of Brian Sicknick, and the chief of the Capitol Police — and even congressional Republicans denounced him for downplaying the violence and seriousness of the breach of the Capitol during the certification of the 2020 Electoral College votes, when so many key members of the federal government were present in the building.
One of those people was Grassley, the senior senator from Iowa who at the time was the Senate President pro tem, meaning he was third in the presidential line of succession behind Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
