His lawyer thinks the January 6 guy with the horned hat - Navy Veteran Jacob Chansley - should get a new trial because the footage released by Speaker Kevin McCarthy and given to Tucker Carlson on Fox, was never made available to him so he could properly defend his client.
And he's right!
Albert Watkins, Chansley's former attorney, told Tucker last night, that he had not seen the January 6 footage first shared Monday on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" while serving his client.
This is simple. The Government had the footage. They didn't show it to the defense. No question it could have had an effect on the outcome.
I really don't care what you think about what happened on January 6 of 2021. I condemned the attack immediately because I never see the need for violence. BUT... we have a system of justice that is supposed to work.
"This is about our justice system being so compromised, the very integrity and core of that, which we wore as a badge of honor for the entirety of our nation's history, has been rendered a vile, disgusting mess by a Department of Justice that was running amok," Watkins said. "And they didn't share the video of my client, the footage from my client with nine officers surrounding him peacefully, wandering about, trying to help them, trying to get him access to the Senate chamber. They didn't because it didn't fit their narrative."
What do you think? Should the most famous J6 attacker get new trial after hours of video was kept from his legal team?
