(CBrief) – Fox News host Tucker Carlson believes that Jacob Chansley, known by the moniker “QAnon Shaman,” should sue Liz Cheney “for the crime she committed against him and against our justice system.”
Chansley was let out of prison last week but that is not the end of his saga, Carlson said.
“The Biden administration is demanding that Chansley serve another six months in a halfway house just to make sure his life is destroyed,” he said.
“Let’s hope that when he finally gets out, he has the energy to sue Liz Cheney of UVA for the crime she committed against him and against our justice system,” he said.
“Jacob Chansley often called the QAnon Shaman got out of prison yesterday. Chansley was the single most famous person arrested on January 6th. Video of him standing in costume on the floor of the senate played endlessly on cable news it made him a symbol of what they told us was an insurrection,” he said on Friday.
“Former George W Bush advisor Steve Schmidt is a committed gun confiscationist, he claims to hate firearms but in the case of Jacob Chansley, Schdimt was strongly in favor of pulling the trigger,” the host said before he played a video of Schmidt calling for Chansley to be shot.
“Shoot him. On the basis of frothing media coverage like that Jacob Chansley spent more than two years behind bars. Earlier this month, we obtained video that had been hidden by the January 6th committee that proved Jacob Chansley did nothing wrong,” the host said.
“He was standing on the floor of US Senate because Capitol Police led him there. Armed officers literally opened the door of the Senate and brought him inside. Jacob Chansley is not a criminal, Jacob Chansley is a political prisoner. Yet unfortunately tonight he remains one,” he said.
