On Wednesday, Whoopi Goldberg, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” went ballistic after 45th President Donald Trump was exonerated by new bombshell findings by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson released earlier this week of previously never before seen raw footage of the January 6, 2021 protest at the Capitol.
Carlson, in what Trump has called “one of the biggest scoops as a reporter in U.S. history,” was granted access by Speaker Kevin McCarthy three weeks ago to 41,000 hours of raw footage of the Capitol protest unseen by the public. Carlson’s part one of coverage aired Monday evening and his final part two aired on Tuesday night.
“I have a question, I have a question. How come this is not thought of as being recruiting? How come they’re not thinking about this radicalizing?” Goldberg asked.
“Why is this not being scrutinized the way that they scrutinize other things? Because to me, this should be against the law. You should not be able to lie to the American people knowingly,” she added.
“You know it’s one thing if you made a mistake and you didn’t know. But we’ve heard for five or six years now, you know, the media was a lying sack of doo. They were fake news,” she continued.
Goldberg added, “They were this. So how come? What is our… what do we do as Americans to say this is not okay? The first amendment doesn’t allow you to willingly lie. To me, that should be illegal.”
“It should be illegal,” fellow co-host Sunny Hostin said in agreement.
“Knowingly… That’s the whole point. You can make a mistake and say something. It happens,” Goldberg responded.
“And people say, ‘Oh, that wasn’t right.’ But you knew… you knew, you knew, you knew,” she added.
“And you know people are still listening to you and you are still lying. And I hope that the DOJ looks through a whole bunch of stuff and figures out what to do about this,” Goldberg said.
Carlson’s coverage has exposed the Democrat and Republican In Name Only (RINOs) who led the January 6th Committee of cherry-picking footage and even editing some footage to fit their “insurrection” narrative.
Carlson reported that, while a small number of people were violent, the vast majority of people who made it into the Capital were peaceful and assisted by Capitol Police.
Carlson’s footage has exposed the mainstream media’s claims of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick being murdered by being struck with a fire extinguisher as false. The footage reveals Sicknick “continued to perform his duties ‘vigorously’ even after being confronted by the mob outside the Capitol,” according to Breitbart.
That’s not all, either. Carlson also debunked claims that Sen. Josh Hawley ran away from the Capital in fear.
“GREAT JOB BY TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT. The Unselect Committee of political Hacks & Thugs has been totally discredited. They knowingly refused to show the Videos that mattered,” Trump wrote in a post on Tuesday afternoon on his successful social media platform, Truth Social.
“They should be tried for Fraud and Treason, and those imprisoned and being persecuted should be exonerated and released, NOW,” Trump added.
Trump has long promised to pardon the January 6th political prisoners convicted of offenses in the January 6, 2021 protest.
