Tucker Carlson Says New Evidence Clears Derek Chauvin of Murder
Conservative pundit Tucker Carlson has claimed this week that new court papers show George Floyd was not murdered in May 2020 by then police officer Derek Chauvin.
Former Minneapolis police officer Chauvin, who is white, was found guilty in April 2021 of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd, who was Black.
In a new clip on X, formerly Twitter, on Friday, Carlson alleged a recent court deposition, had proven Chauvin had not murdered Floyd.
However, as Newsweek has found, Carlson's analysis bears some examination.
