Capitol Police Let ‘QAnon Shaman’ Into Senate Chamber

  • US Capitol Police appeared to give Jacob Chansley, the so-called “QAnon Shaman,” the run of the place during the Jan. 6, 2021, riot, trailing him in a bizarre escort as he walked the halls near the Senate chamber that day — and even opening the door to allow him inside, according to surveillance footage made public Monday night.
  • The never-before-seen video aired on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” part of more than 40,000 hours of closed-circuit security footage that Carlson and his producers were given access to by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).
  • In contrast to the running battles between cops and rioters supporting President Donald Trump outside the Capitol building, clips aired Monday show Chansley — clad in his eye-catching horned fur headdress with red, white and blue face paint and holding an American flag and a bullhorn — leisurely strolling through the building, hardly being challenged or acknowledged by police.
