(trendingpoliticsnews) – Fox News host Tucker Carlson called on Jacob Chansley, the “QAnon Shaman,” to sue Liz Cheney “for the crime she committed against him and against our justice system.”
“The Biden administration is demanding that Chansley serve another six months in a halfway house just to make sure his life is destroyed,” Carlson began.
“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,” he added.
“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,” the Fox News host said on Friday.
“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,” Carlson said before playing a video of Schmidt calling for Chansley to be shot.
“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,” Carlson continued.
“He was standing on the floor of US 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. ”
Jacob Chansley’s attorney William Shipley announced an update on Chansley on Thursday. Shipley praised the “significant” revelations Carlson made when releasing footage of Chansley from the Jan. 6 Capitol events.
Chansley “will make his thoughts known about all that has happened when it is the right time to do so,” Shipley said in a tweet.
