In a move that is sure to ruffle feathers on the left, attorney Joseph McBride, who represents a prisoner still being held in jail after being arrested on charges related to the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol Building, has filed a motion with the Justice Department in response to the airing of previously unseen surveillance video footage by Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

“We just filed a motion in USA v RYAN TAYLOR NICHOLS to prevent the Government from advancing the false narrative that police were killed by protestors on J6,” McBride tweeted on Friday, adding: “NO MORE LIES.”

In a follow-up tweet, he wrote, “They lied about everything!” in a post containing a link to a DC Metropolitan Police Report. “They knew MAGA Republicans were coming to protest, so they entrapped them,” he charged.

During his program, Carlson called out a number of people, including members of the House Jan. 6 Committee, hand-selected by then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as well as Biden administration officials, including Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Joe Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland is a liar. He just lied about something that is provably false. No police officers died that day on January 6. None. Not one,” he said.

Carlson said during his Monday show that Americans had been “lied” to about at least some of the events of Jan. 6, and he called out specific members of the January 6 Committee in particular.

“If there’s one takeaway from the corpus of footage that we spent three weeks looking at, it’s that the January 6th committee lied,” he said. “Its members are liars, and as the result of those lies, core civil liberties in this country were eroded, people went to prison. They’re in prison as of right now, unjustly. So those lies had consequences.

“So you have to ask yourself, whatever happened to the members of the January 6th committee, these liars who hurt people and the country?” he added. “Well, let’s see, Adam Schiff is running for Senate. Adam Kinzinger got a job at CNN. Liz Cheney somehow wound up a professor at the University of Virginia, the august University of Virginia. They’re all still there. Benny Thompson. Ooh, listen to his wisdom. But they’re liars, and above all,” he added.

In a stunning admission last week, the chairman of the January 6 Committee confessed that, to his knowledge, no member of the panel had seen any of the footage that Carlson aired.

In a statement to CNN, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) declared that the group never scrutinized the J6 footage, which Fox News aired this week and had not been viewed before.

“I’m not actually aware of any member of the committee who had access,” Thompson said. “We had a team of employees who kind of went through the video.”

Regardless of whether the panel members’ staff simply skimmed through the video or were already aware of it but opted to keep it hidden, the January 6 investigation was supposedly tasked by then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for delivering an impartial and precise account of the event.

Carlson’s team was given access to some 41,000 hours of previously undisclosed video footage taken in and around the U.S. Capitol on the day of the riot, and he aired some of it on Monday. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who provided Carlson’s team the access, defended his decision to do so earlier this week.

In response to the controversy, Attorney General Merrick Garland insisted that the Justice Department is pursuing the January 6 Capitol riot cases with a “single focus” on holding those responsible accountable. He also said that he stands by his previous statement that he was unaware of any report contradicting the conclusion that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes.

The mainstream media’s coverage of the events on January 6 has been called into question, especially given their previous coverage of the Russian collusion hoax. Many believe that the mainstream media has been complicit in advancing the false narrative that police were killed by protestors on January 6.

Moreover, Rep. Adam Schiff, who was one of the most vocal proponents of the Russian collusion hoax, is now running for Senate. Adam Kinzinger, who voted in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump, landed a job at CNN, and Liz Cheney is now a professor at the University of Virginia. Many feel that these individuals, who have been accused of lying, should be held accountable for their actions.

Regardless of whether the panel members’ staff simply skimmed through the video or were already aware of it but opted to keep it hidden, the January 6 investigation was supposedly tasked by then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with delivering an impartial and precise account of the event.

The American people deserve transparency and honesty, particularly from their elected officials and the mainstream media. It is essential to avoid the spread of false narratives and to hold those responsible accountable for their actions
