During his Monday night show, Carlson played footage of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick performing his duties on January 6 to dismiss the idea that his death was the fault of Trump supporters.
Carlson showed clips of Sicknick looking “healthy and vigorous” after he was attacked by Trump supporters and dismissed the suggestion that his death was linked to the injuries he received that day.
Sicknick died one day after protecting the Capitol during the riot on January 6, 2021.
It was ruled that Sicknick died of natural causes after suffering multiple strokes hours after the riot took place. A medical examiner ruled that the events of January 6 “played a role” in his condition.
“Whatever happened to Brian Sicknick was very obviously not the result of violence he suffered at the entrance to the Capitol. This tape overturns the single most powerful and politically useful lie the Democrats have told us about January 6,” Carlson said.
