The long awaited never before seen January 6th Tapes are finally beginning to be released. Tucker Carlson debuted his first report on Monday covering several key moments and players on that day. Tucker’s reporting dominated the headlines and discussion this week, leading to a wide range of reactions, including a call for the censorship of Tucker Carlson’s show by Senate Majority Chuck Schumer and a call for the release of Jacob Chansley by Elon Musk.

Tucker Debuts First Round Of January 6th Tapes
Last week, Tucker Carlson announced on Twitter that his show would begin publishing the results of their investigation into the January 6th Tapes.
Tucker Carlson’s team had been given access to the January 6th tapes by Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, and have been analyzing the massive trove of footage for several weeks now.
This announcement, unsurprisingly, led to a massive freakout by the Regime and their pawns in the Mainstream Media, but the release of the tapes is something polling shows is extremely popular with the American people, regardless of political affiliation.
So this past Monday, Tucker Carlson kept his word and debuted his first report on the January 6th Tapes.
Here is our thread on all the new footage that Tucker released.
After Tucker Carlson’s segments on this never before seen footage, he had Congressman Thomas Massie on to discuss. Congressman Massie, who is serving on the newly established Weaponization Committee, praised Tucker for his reporting, called on his colleagues to release all of the January 6th Tapes to the public, and demanded a complete catalogue of all the Feds present at the Capitol that day.
On the question of the full release of the January 6th tapes to the public, Speaker McCarthy announced later this week that he intends to do this. That is excellent news, but we will all have to hold him to it.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he intends to fully release to the public the tens of thousands of hours of U.S. Capitol surveillance footage from January 6, 2021.
Returning to Tucker Carlson’s reporting, here are some of the key figures focused on in this first wave of new footage.
Jacob Chansley (The QAnon Shaman)
Officer Brian Sicknick

President Trump’s Reaction That Night To Tucker Carlson’s Reporting
The next day, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer went down to the Senate Floor to condemn Tucker Carlson and Speaker McCarthy, call for Fox News to censor Tucker, and repeated the Mainstream Media’s lies about the death of Officer Brian Sicknick. Chuck then spent the whole day whining about Tucker and refused an offer from Tucker to debate him on his show.
Thread On Tucker vs. Chuck:
Tucker Carlson responded to Chuck Schumer on his show later that night.
And the RINO Republicans who joined Chuck.
Despite the calls for censorship from the Left, Tucker’s reporting dominated the news cycle this week and was even commented on several times by Elon Musk.
Another important development this week regarding January 6th was the announcement by the Oversight Committee that they would be investigating the horrible treatment of the January 6th political prisoners.
Representative Greene has been one of the few voices (Representatives Matt Gaetz and Paul Gosar as well) in Washington consistently fighting for these people.
Journalist Julie Kelly has also been a hero in covering the January 6th political prisoners, and joined Tucker Carlson this week to provide an update.
Attorney for January 6th Defendants Joseph McBride joined Laura Ingraham this week to react to the new footage Tucker Carlson released.
As we highlighted above, the case that was the most discussed this week was the case of Jacob Chansley (The QAnon Shaman). The footage that Tucker Carlson released of him on January 6th was perhaps the most explosive as the media had made him the face of the “insurrection.” The footage of Chansley wandering around the Capitol, led by police and committing no violence, smashed the media’s already collapsing narrative that this man was leading any kind of “assault on the Capitol.”
Chansley’s mother and his current lawyer joined Tucker Carlson later this week to discuss Chansley’s case.
Another thing that is interesting about Chansley’s case is the handling of it by his original lawyer. Chansley’s current lawyer William Shipley had some very strong words for Chansley’s original lawyer Albert Watkins.
Watkins was on Tucker’s show the night before.
We’re not going to speculate on any of this as we don’t know the full details of the counsel Chansley received or is receiving, but we hope this man is now getting the representation he deserves.

We applaud Tucker Carlson and Speaker McCarthy for getting us to this point, and hope that this is only the beginning.
