Chuck Schumer exposed himself and the entire cabal of members of Congress who staged the January 6th lie on prime-time TV. When he threw his temper tantrum on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday, he built a case against him for crimes against the American people.
The January 6th Committee showed hours of footage of the protestors entering the Capital. Those images told a horrid story showing windows and doors smashed in to allow access to the Capital’s interior, where they damaged property and disrespected the core of our government.
Unfortunately, the Committee chose the video segments that supported their story that the protestors were a mob creating an insurrection against the United States government in retaliation for a corrupt election in 2020. They kept the remainder of the unseen video under lock and key. As long as the Democrats controlled Congress, their misdeed was safe. The Republicans took control of the House in 2022, and one of the first actions of the new Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, was to release over 6,000 hours of video the public had never seen. His office released the stash of recordings to Tucker Carlson of FOX News. After a few weeks of reviewing the many hours of video, Tucker released some of the tapes on Monday night in Prime Time. I guarantee more people watched Tucker than the January 6th Committee hearings. These tapes told a very different story that destroyed the findings of the Committee.
Senator Chuck Schumer took to the Senate floor on Tuesday and threw a Senatorial Temper Tantrum demanding that Tucker Carlson and Kevin McCarthy be charged with treason. Schumer and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries sent Rupert Murdoch a letter requesting he censors Fox News hosts. This is the leader of the Senate and the Minority Leader of the House violating the First Amendment and requiring the censoring of the media.
Schumer attempted to place blame on Carlson for perpetuating a lie on the American people and that Kevin McCarthy was complicit. In truth, the disaster here is the egg all over the faces of the Democrats, who have lied and are guilty of suppressing evidence.
Among the lies debunked by Tucker Carlson were Brian Sicknick being murdered by protesters (Tucker showed he was unharmed), Jacob Chansley, aka “The Qanon Shaman” committing sedition (he marched peacefully throughout the Capitol), and Ray Epps being a patriotic whistleblower (he perjured himself before the Committee.)
Showing these tapes cannot be the end of this story. Schumer, Pelosi, and every Senator and Congressperson who went along with the dog and pony show of the January 6th Committee must be questioned, investigated, and possibly charged for violations.
There was much wrong with the protest on January 6th, but it should not be compounded by members of Congress breaking the law to tell a fictitious version of the day. Holding office does not place you above the law, and violating the First Amendment and suppressing evidence are serious crimes and should be treated so.
Tucker Carlson invited Chuck Schumer to appear on his show, but Schumer insists on Tucker and FOXNews apologizing for showing the tapes and admitting they lied to America. As usual, Chuck has the facts wrong, and he should take to the microphone and do exactly what he demanded of FOX. Don’t hold your breath waiting.
