Donald Trump has called for the members of the January 6 committee to tried for treason because they ‘knowingly refused’ to share the Capitol riot footage aired by Tucker Carlson.

The former president called members of the Democrat-led panel ‘political hacks and thugs’ that have been ‘totally discredited’ by the new videos.

In his Truth Social post he also called for the release of all jailed January 6 prisoners and suspects after the Fox News host aired more clips on his show on Tuesday night.

It included an interview with a Capitol cop wearing a MAGA hat during the riot who resigned a short time later, believing he had no future in the force.

Carlson has been handed 40,000 hours of footage from inside the Capitol, which House Speaker Kevin McCarthy says was a decision made for transparency.

‘GREAT JOB BY TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT,’ Trump wrote late Tuesday night.

‘The Unselect Committee of political Hacks & Thugs has been totally discredited. 

‘They knowingly refused to show the Videos that mattered. They should be tried for Fraud and Treason, and those imprisoned and being persecuted should be exonerated and released, NOW’.

Treason is punishable by death in the U.S. and the lowest prison sentence is five years.

It is described in the criminal code as: ‘Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States
