Tucker Carlson absolutely triggered the liberal left this week, airing just a few choice clips from his massive cache of previously-unseen footage of the events of January 6th, 2021.
Carlson’s hope was to push back against the overtly-violent narrative being espoused by the liberal left, and provide the nation with a more accurate and not-so-cherry-picked glut of firsthand evidence. One of the first clips he brought to light was of the “infamous” QAnon Shaman being calmly toured around the complex by Capitol Police who even attempted to open doors for him.
The House GOP is now ready to take Carlson’s cause a step further, and bring even more humanity to those accused of “sedition” over the protest.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is working with House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) to schedule a trip for members of Congress to visit the Washington, D.C., jail where Jan. 6 defendants are being held.
Greene, who has previously toured the jail where those charged with crimes relating to the Jan. 6, 2021, attack are held, is leading the effort.
A letter to start the process of scheduling the visit is expected to be released on Thursday, both Greene and Comer said. Greene added the letter will probably be addressed to “multiple people” so the group can “let them know that we’re coming.”
There were concerns about the conditions faced by these prisoners.
Comer said that he is working with Greene on the letter just as he would with any other member of his committee on matters they are interested in.
“We’re going to be addressing the human rights abuse, such as the fact that they’ve been held in solitary confinement up to 23 hours a day, denied the ability to see their families,” Greene said, also alleging “non-working toilets” and issues receiving medical treatment.
The news is sure to annoy Democrats and the mainstream media who’ve long been invested in the idea that this violent insurrection was on par with terrorism or treason.
