NYT Still Runs False Story on Capitol Policeman Who ‘Died’ in Riot

Newly released footage from the events at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, shows Brian Sicknick, a Capitol Police officer, was alive and healthy during what the mainstream media and the left have been lamenting as a “riot.”

The New York Times continues to run stories claiming he was somehow killed when supporters of then-President Trump penetrated the building.

Orderly State of Affairs

The footage in question was aired on Monday night by Fox News host Tucker Carlson, after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy granted him access to more than 40,000 hours of January 6, 2021 videos from the Capitol’s security cameras.

As Carlson remarked, the new footage shows quite orderly scenes inside the Capitol after the time of the alleged riot, with pro-Trump protesters walking around peacefully and police officers escorting many of them, opening doors, and giving them directions.

The alleged murder of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick on 1/6 has been one of the main talking points of the left, possibly even its strongest one.

That leftist narrative has just been completely shattered by the footage from January 6, 2021, which Tucker Carlson aired. Nevertheless, the New York Times still claims Sicknick was “slain” during the riot at the US Capitol.

Regardless of the fact that it eventually retracted the fake news story, the leftist propaganda machine continued to maintain the riot was the cause of the police officer’s death.

That has been the case even though an autopsy report proved Sicknick died because of a stroke he suffered on January 7, 2021.


The Democrats’ Biggest Lie Overturned

The previously unseen surveillance videos clearly disprove the claim that officer Brian Sicknick got “murdered by the mob outside,” as The New York Times claimed.

Instead, the videos show Sicknick as he walks around inside the Capitol building, seemingly healthy and in normal condition, The New York Post reported.

In the new footage, the police officer can be seen making gestures that invite the protesters to leave the grounds of the US Capitol. He also bends down to place a placard behind a statue.

In his commentary, Tucker Carlson emphasized that Sicknick couldn’t have been killed by a blow to the head since he can be seen wearing a police helmet.

Carlson concluded that “whatever happened” to the police officer “very obviously” didn’t result from any violence he was claimed to have suffered at the Capitol’s entrance.

The Fox News host noted further that the tape he aired “overturned” the strongest and most “politically useful lie” that Democrats had been telling about 1/6.

What is more, though, Carlson made it clear the January 6 committee that former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put together also saw the same footage of a healthy Sicknick.

Electronic bookmarks on the Capitol database evidence that. However, the committee hid the videos from the American public to defend the “fraud” they perpetrated to serve their political agenda.
