(Washington) — Senate Republicans on Tuesday refuted Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s portrayal of the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, saying his characterization of the events as “mostly peaceful” is at odds with the reality they experienced as a mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters breached the building.

During the Monday night broadcast of his primetime show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the Fox News host aired selected snippets from  of 41,000 hours of footage from the Capitol that day.

Carlson claimed surveillance video from the scene showed “mostly peaceful chaos” inside the Capitol. While a “small percentage” of the rioters were “hooligans” who committed vandalism, he said, most were “orderly and meek,” and he equated them with “sightseers.”

But some Senate Republicans pushed back on Carlson’s depiction. Members of the House and Senate were evacuated from their respective chambers when the rioters forced their way into the building, knocking over barricades and forcing their way past police in an attempt to stop the counting of state electoral votes.

“When you come into the chambers, when you start opening members’ desks, when you stand up in their balcony, to somehow put that in the same category as permitted protest is just a lie,” Sen. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota told reporters.

Cramer said his recollection of Jan. 6 was “that it was not just some rowdy protest of Boy Scouts,” and those who participated in the attack should be held accountable.

Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina called Carlson’s claims “bulls**t.”

“I was down there, and I saw maybe a few tourists, a few people who got caught up in things,” he said. “But when you see police barricades breached, when you see police officers assaulted, all of that, or you had to be in close proximity to it, if you were just a tourist, you should have probably lined up at the Visitor Center and came in on an orderly basis. I just don’t think it’s helpful.”

Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 2 Senate Republican, said that the events of Jan. 6 were “an attack on the Capitol.”

“There were a lot of people in the Capitol at the time who I think were scared for their lives,” he said.

Carlson was given access to the trove of 41,000 hours of police and surveillance footage from Jan. 6 by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. CBS News is part of a group of media organizations demanding access to the tranche of videos from the attack.

McCarthy has defended his agreement with Carlson and Fox News regarding the video, telling reporters last week that he gave the network exclusive access and then will “give it out to the entire country.”

2 Comments on Push back from CBS on Tucker Carlson’s claims about Jan. 6 assault [Video]

  1. Chucklehead schumer is just another woke anus with no concept of reality. Truth is anathema to them. Facts are despised and common sense is a dark art.

  2. So YouTube is censoring Carlson’s J6 video? I’d like to see them lose their license for at least a couple of weeks.
