A newly-obtained video shows United States Capitol Police officers speaking with several January 6 protestors—including Jacob Chansley, the so-called “Q shaman”—inside the Capitol that afternoon.
One officer, identified in the video and confirmed by charging documents as Officer Keith Robishaw, appears to tell Chansely’s group they won’t stop them from entering the building. “We’re not against . . . you need to show us . . . no attacking, no assault, remain calm,” Robishaw warns. Chansley and another protestor instruct the crowd to act peacefully. “This has to be peaceful,” Chansley yelled. “We have the right to peacefully assemble.” …
Chansley later is seen entering the Senate chambers with a police officer behind him; he led several protesters in prayer and sat in Vice President Mike Pence’s chair.
None of the “insurrectionists” even carried weapons. The left’s line is a big lie, told boldly and often, but we’re not buying it.
Most of the video footage on the day has been banned from release by the Government. The video above fits in with guards removing barricades etc and letting people in. Things eventually got ugly outside when some trouble makers [provocateurs?] stirred the mob. The guard who shot dead the armed services protestor climbing in a window has not faced any disciplinary action to the best of my knowledge. That killing stirred the crowd further and upset other guards present.
The US government has 12,000 hours of video of that day at the Capitol, and have released almost none of it. If they were fair-minded and had nothing to hide, they would make it all public.
Oh, it was an insurrection. So how many of the participants in that insurrection have been charged with insurrection, with sedition, with treason? Zero. By the Biden Justice Department. Instead, they’ve been charged with effectively trespassing.
They weren’t even armed.
