ALBAWABA - Fox News host Tucker Carlson aired never-seen-before clips from the Capitol riot in the United States dating back to 2021.

Fox News showcased the videos on Monday night claiming that the capitol incident was just a "peaceful" protest and it "does not show an insurrection or a riot in progress."

The videos shared by Fox news dragged a wave of criticism by the Senate Republicans and Capitol police.

According to CNN, the Fox News host was given access to the capitol security cameras by a top congressional Republican.

Carlson argued that other media outlets exaggerated while showcasing violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, carried out by supporters of former U.S. President Donald Trump who recently announcement bid for reelection.

Nevertheless, the family of the officer killed during the Capitol riots complained after the Fox News host reportedly said that the narrative surrounding the officer's death was "a lie."
