(SNews) – Fox News host Tucker Carlson has put Liz Cheney on notice and demanded that the former congresswoman faces justice in civil courts “for the crime she committed against Jacob Chansley and against our justice system.”
Carlson was responding after the security footage from the U.S. Capitol, which he reported on his show, proved the Democrats’ anti-Trump narrative about Jan. 6 was false.
Among the revelations from the video was evidence that peaceful Jan. 6 protester Jacob Chansley was wrongly imprisoned and falsely smeared as a “violent insurrectionist.”
“The Biden administration is demanding that Chansley serve another six months in a halfway house just to make sure his life is destroyed,” Carlson said.
“Let’s hope that when he finally gets out, he has the energy to sue Liz Cheney of UVA for the crime she committed against him and against our justice system.
“Jacob Chansley, often called the ‘QAnon Shaman,’ got out of prison yesterday.
“Chansley was the single most famous person arrested on January 6th.
“Video of him standing in costume on the floor of the Senate played endlessly on cable news it made him a symbol of what they told us was an ‘insurrection.’
“Former George W Bush advisor Steve Schmidt is a committed gun confiscationist.
“He claims to hate firearms but in the case of Jacob Chansley, Schdimt was strongly in favor of pulling the trigger. ‘Shoot him.’
“On the basis of frothing media coverage like that Jacob Chansley spent more than two years behind bars.
“Earlier this month, we obtained video that had been hidden by the January 6th committee that proved Jacob Chansley did nothing wrong,” the host said.
“He was standing on the floor of the U.S. Senate because Capitol Police led him there.
“Armed officers literally opened the door of the Senate and brought him inside.
“Jacob Chansley is not a criminal, Jacob Chansley is a political prisoner.
“Yet unfortunately tonight he remains one,” he said.

Chansley’s lawyer cleared up the misconception about why he was released early.
He said: “For the record: Jake is out on schedule.
“I told him 16 months ago in our first conversation it would be Feb. or Mar. 2023. BOP math.
“I didn’t do anything extraordinary–this was always the schedule, I just understood it and could explain it to him.
“He was expecting 12 more mos.
“But this is why the trust level between us is solid.
“I told him the truth, and I told him what would happen.
“We made several decisions after long discussions.
“He’s exactly where we both expected he would be.
“The Tucker revelations are significant but Jake can’t get the time back.
“Understanding the schedule, we agreed to not rush our next step.
“Let’s get accurate info on the videos, evaluate our options, then make a plan.
“I could have rushed it out and run to the cameras.
“But that wasn’t the right choice.
“If only his trial lawyer had done the same.
“Jake will make his thoughts known about all that has happened when it is the right time to do so.”
For the record:
Jake is out on schedule. I told him 16 months ago in our first conversation it would be Feb. or Mar. 2023.
I didn't do anything extraordinary–this was always the schedule, I just understood it and could explain it to him.
He was expecting 12 more mos.
