Fox News host Tucker Carlson warned Washington that he is prepared to release some of the “hidden” footage from the January 6th, 2021 riot at the Capitol as early as next week.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy gave Carlson exclusive access to over 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the riot, leaving Democrat lawmakers and media personalities apoplectic in recent weeks.
“The defenders of democracy are defending democracy again,” he told his audience Thursday night. “They’re telling you it’s really, really dangerous.”
Carlson explained that the thousands of hours of surveillance footage from January 6th “has been hidden from the public for two years” while a “tiny group of people gets to make up stories about what happened that day and change the country on the basis of those stories.”
The Fox News host cited a Rasmussen poll that indicates 80% of likely voters think it’s important the public see videos that had previously remained hidden.

Tucker Carlson: The January 6th Videos Are Coming
With the public clamoring for the information, Carlson vowed that release of the videos is coming. And it’s coming rather soon.
“So you’re defending democracy, but you’re denying people information on the basis of which they can make their own decisions,” he said.
“How does that work exactly?” Carlson continued. “Well, it’s not democracy, of course. It’s building a bulwark against your lies being revealed. And they are lying. And we know that because we’ve been looking at the tape.”

“We’re going to bring you information on the tape and some of it next week,” he said. “And we think it’s going to be really, really interesting.”
Tucker Carlson knows the J6 committee was lying because his crew has seen the tapes. 🔥 https://t.co/GkhUXkWu8z

Did the Feds Provoke the Riot
One can only speculate what Tucker Carlson and his crew have found in the unreleased January 6th footage.
That’s because the highly partisan select committee of circus clowns presumably released only video that helped push their pre-conceived narrative that Donald Trump was responsible for the near collapse of democracy to the public.
The committee’s final report focused exclusively on that aspect, with sources discussing matters with NBC News several weeks ago accusing them of intentionally concealing security flaws.

The same Rasmussen poll Carlson cited shows 61% of respondents believe it is likely “that undercover government agents helped provoke the Capitol riot.”
NBC News previously reported on an informant who warned the FBI weeks in advance that January 6th posed a “big” threat of violence, but who was ultimately ignored.
And the FBI did nothing.
Not only did the FBI have information weeks in advance, but they allegedly had numerous informants in the crowd that day and still didn’t prevent the riot from getting out of hand.
Reports of FBI Informants in January 6th Crowd
Court documents examined by the New York Times show the FBI had as many as eight informants embedded with the “Proud Boys” group in the months leading up to the Capitol riot.
Prior to that, the Times publicized that the FBI had another well-placed informant within the Oath Keepers, another group that allegedly took part in the protest.

FBI Director Christopher Wray, when confronted on the possibility of the FBI being embedded in the crowd on January 6th, refused to offer a denial.
Wray instead said he had to “be very careful” about answering questions on whether the bureau had informants dressed as Trump supporters in the crowd.
Will the videos made public by Tucker Carlson next week and in the weeks going forward show evidence of these informants’ actions? Will it show, as the poll indicates, that the feds helped instigate the day’s events?
We’ll certainly be watching next week. Will you?

Clearly the ’20 election results including J6 were necessary to drive the ’22 midterms and hopefully ’24 general to the Dems as well, but the wheels are falling off the Left’s plan to take over the world. But let’s not be complacent anymore. We’ve seen how dangerous that is. I’m all for risk-taking, skydiving, rock climbing and supercars but this is less about us than about our children.
This is all old news. Only, reason they are up-playing it, is because it hasn’t been allowed on national news.
I’ll say it about all these topics: (so-called) 2016 Election Integrity, 2020 Election Integrity, January 6 – Investigate all of them and let the chips fall where they may (or may not). It’s our government, not theirs. It’s our information, not theirs.
This was NOT a riot by any definition or stretch of the imagination — unless you’re a demented Democrat, of course! It was a PROTEST in an attempt to bring the rightfully elected President back to the White House, to prevent the destruction we’re seeing today caused by the White House puppet and his puppeteers!!!! THAT is what it was about. The only crime was committed by one of the Capitol Hill hall monitors they refer to as “police,” who shot an innocent woman who had not done a thing to deserve it!! May God help us and preserve America and the Constitution!
Funny I commented this morning about McCarthy not allowing Tucker to actually show any of the videos – according to what I read he can only comment on them I guess this site does not allow any criticism
Why is it alleged that Speaker Vos met with HRC attornies in advance?
Who gave Wisconsin REPUBLICAN Speaker Vos authorization to approval illegal nationwide lockboxes?
We were lied to again. Will the truth ever be told? Doubtful. Let’s see what happens. Perhaps the greatest thing Trump achieved is unmasking the corruption in our government, MSM, and big tech. Essentially showed us the deep state. Can we fix it?
I would love to see what the J6 committee does not want us to sea. But I have read that McCarthy has strings attached to the tapes. Tucker may see them but according to McCarthy he may not reproduce them to show the public. He is only allowed to comment on what he saw. Time will tell but I don’t trust the Speaker at all. He has declared the patriots in DC jail were guilty of crimes against the government! Even Pelosi’s daughter and the FBI have stated it was NOT an insurrection!
YES – infact it should be mandatory for ALL American citizens to watch all the tapes as and when they are released and described.
This is the ONLY way we can be certain that ONLY the correct persons – be they FBI DoJ CIA Capitol Police or ANY government supported set of agitators is held to account publicly for their actions.
And then we come to the callous MURDER of unarmed veteran and mother Ashli Babbitt by a Capitol “policeman”!
He MUST appear, charged before a proper Court of Law – not some “House Committee” or other whitewash outfit.
The Truth always eventually comes out! IMHO
Thee FBI was monitoring Trumps speech too…a mile away. One agent told the press that Trump was giving a speech, and had 12 more minutes of speech when the action startedd. I guess not one FBI member told that to investigators because they probably would get fired if they cleared Trump
The democrats have effectively weaponized the FBI against their political enemies. The sham Jan 6 committee’s, so called, investigation was another coordinated attack on the American political process by Nancy Pelosi and the media. Unfortunately too many people have tuned out which allows more freedoms to be lost in plain sight.
So let’s see the tape(s).
Will Lizard Cheney subsequently be arrested for subversion or even treason?
I hope so. She deserves nothing less than the grief she caused the jan6 protestors.
