Bitcon Advocate and The President of El Salvador Nayib Bukele Calls Out US Government After New Jan 6th Videos Are Released• March 8, 2023 12:40 am • Comments
Shortly after Fox News Host Tucker Carlson released never before seen footage of the Capitol on January 6th, the internet was set on fire.
One video, in particular, Tucker showed on his hit show, depicted Jacob Chansley better known as the Q Shaman being escorted by Capitol Police inside the Capitol.
Chansley is currently serving a 41-month sentence in federal prison for obstruction of an official proceeding along with other charges.
Other videos showed January protestors walking calmly all throughout the Capitol and taking selfies.
The new footage caught the attention of the President of El Salvador Nayib Bukele.
Bukele took to Twitter and tweeted “The United States Government is putting PROVEN INNOCENTS in jail and is, at the same time, concerned about us putting PROVEN CRIMINALS in jail”

The new footage has many others besides Bukele talking about it.
The Hill had these details to add:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson whipped up a firestorm Tuesday on Capitol Hill, sparking bipartisan backlash and igniting tensions with Capitol Police by downplaying the Jan. 6 Capitol riot on his prime-time program as “mostly peaceful chaos.”
His show divided Republicans, with a number of GOP senators ripping his portrayal of the incursion at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger, who rarely offers opinions on political issues, said the Monday night show was filled with “offensive and misleading conclusions about the Jan. 6 attack.”
“The program conveniently cherry-picked from the calmer moments of our 41,000 hours of video. The commentary fails to provide context about the chaos and violence that happened before or during these less tense moments,” Manger wrote in a memo to lawmakers.
“Those of you who contributed to the effort to allow this country’s legislative process to continue know firsthand what actually happened.”
The segment was the first of two installments planned for this week relying on security footage granted to Carlson by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). Carlson was expected to air more clips from the footage during his show on Tuesday evening.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) issued a scathing rebuke of Carlson and Fox on Tuesday, holding up a copy of the memo and saying he wanted to associate himself “with the opinion of the chief of the Capitol police about what happened on Jan. 6.”
