Fox News’ Tucker Carlson revealed a concerning development on his show late Wednesday night. Carlson brought on the former attorney of the QAnon Shaman, Jacob Chansley.
Chansley’s attorney, Albert Watkins, told Carlson he was never shown the bombshell footage of his client being peacefully walked around the Capitol with non-confrontational Capitol police officers. Watkins explained he did not see the footage until Carlson aired the video of Chansley on Monday night.
The QAnon shaman’s attorney ripped into the Department of Justice for hiding the video from Chansely and his counsel.
“The government knew they knew that Jake had walked around with all of these police officers, they had that video footage. I didn’t get it. It wasn’t disclosed to me. It wasn’t provided to me,” the attorney told Carlson.
“I filed a requisite pleading for it. And whether I did or not, they had a duty, an absolute duty, with zero discretion to provide it to me so that I could share it with my client. I never got it…what’s happened is truly a dagger in the heart of our American justice system,” Watkins added.
