Sen. Chuck Schumer called on Fox News not to air a second night of January 6 surveillance footage after Tucker Carlson showed video of Capitol Police officers escorting “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley through the Capitol Building. Police have since released a statement saying they were doing their best to “de-escalate” the situation and prevent more rioters from entering the building — meaning they can’t refute what the video clearly shows.

Elon Musk tweeted that “Chansley got four years in prison for a non-violent, police-escorted tour,” but Instagram has appended a note leading readers to “see why fact-checkers say this is false.” Those fact-checkers are Lead Stories, PolitiFact, and AFP. Conclusion? False. “Independent fact-checkers say this information has no basis in fact.” Hello? We’ve seen the video.

Where did Musk tweet that police accompanied Chansley the entire time? That’s their basis for calling his tweet false.
