On Wednesday, The New York Post posted an article about the unconstitutional treatment of the January 6th prisoners.
The article notes:
For more than two years, the surveillance footage from the 2021 Capitol riot, aired this week by Tucker Carlson, was kept from the American public by a Democratic Congress so a false narrative became cemented in the public consciousness.
For more than two years, footage that could have exonerated Jan. 6 defendants was kept from their legal teams.
People are in prison because of that cover-up.
Take the footage aired by Carlson Monday night of so-called “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley being escorted around the Capitol by police officers who help him open the door and enter the empty Senate chamber.
It is hard to reconcile these calm and even cordial scenes with the nearly four-year prison sentence Chansley now is serving for “obstructing an official proceeding.”
Contrary to what apologists have been saying since Carlson began airing the footage, all this material has not previously been made available to the J6 defendants, some of whom have been jailed without trial for two years, in violation of their constitutional right to a fair and speedy trial.
Jacob Chanley’s lawyer has publicly stated that this footage was not made available either to him or to the judge.
Please follow the link above to read the entire article. It’s time to release the January 6th prisoners and put those who perpetrated the lie in jail.
The article concludes:
The Capitol riot was a gift to Democrats and Trump-deranged Republicans. They didn’t care about the perversion of justice or the human toll of their political game.
If this were happening in an authoritarian overseas country, the State Department would rightly decry the injustice.
The shabby treatment of the J6 defendants is a stain on this country’s reputation that has not gone unnoticed around the world.
