Crumbling Narrative: Tucker Carlson Says Capital Police Chief Admitted ‘Jan6 Crowd Was Filled With Feds’ In First Public Interview Since Fox News Firing
Back in April, Tucker Carlson was booted from Fox News.
The reasoning for this firing was suspicious in the beginning. Especially because the news came as a shock to most avid fans of the Tucker Carlson primetime cable television show.
Some speculated that it had to do with the recent Dominion Voting settlement, somehow.
Notably, Tucker Carlson’s biographer Chadwick Moore said the ex-Fox News host was let go from the network on the same day he was planning to debunk more January 6 lies.
His departure also came directly ahead of Carlson’s plan to discuss suspected FBI informant Ray Epps further.
And the decision to boot Carlson did, in fact, come as part of the Dominion settlement.
Moore shared the details of this move in a Twitter video that amassed a million views in less than one hour – WATCH:
For the last year, I've been writing the definitive biography of @TuckerCarlson, based on thorough research and 100+ hours of interviews.
But there's some info that can't wait for July 18: the scoop on why Fox canceled his show.

Carlson appears to have confirmed these details in his first public interview since being fired from Fox News.
The former host sat down with Russel Brand on his Rumble show to explain why he moved his hit show to Twitter of all platforms. In addition to his views on Donald Trump and what he was working on just ahead of the firing.

“I’m not working for Elon Musk… what he’s done is offered me is what he’s offered every other user at Twitter which is a chance to broadcast your views without a gatekeeper,” Carlson said.
From Summit News:
The whole interview is fascinating, but one section in particular is key, when discussed the events of January 6th.
As a reminder, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy had released 40,000 hours of video footage from the riot – which Carlson had begun airing on Fox News – much of which suggested a different narrative than the craven mob of killers the Democrats (and the media) have maintained was unleashed on the Capitol by Trump’s words and actions.
Admitting he was “appalled” by some of the events of that day, the former Fox News anchor said the reason he “got involved in commenting on it” was because “the lying about it was immediate: ‘This was a racist, white-supremacist insurrection.’”
“I interviewed the chief of the Capitol Police, Steven Sund, in an interview that was never aired on Fox, by the way — I was fired before it could air, I’m gonna interview him again,” Carlson said in the interview with Brand.
“But Steven Sund was the totally non-political, worked for Nancy Pelosi, I mean, this was not some right-wing activist. He was the chief of Capitol Police on January 6, and he said, ‘Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, that crowd was filled with federal agents.’ What? ‘Yes.’ Well he would know, of course, because he was in charge of security at the site,” Carlson added.
“So, the more time has passed… it becomes really obvious that core claims they made about January 6 were lies,” Carlson explained. “The amount of lying around January 6, and it was obvious in the tapes that I showed, is really distressing.”
Since Carlson’s Fox News firing, the network has been struggling to maintain ratings.
To try and bring stability to the primetime lineup, Fox News has brought in host Jesse Watters to officially take over Carlson’s coveted 8PM time slot.
