After appearing in an on-camera interview with Tucker Carlson, some experts think they’ve now placed Chaya Raichik at the Capitol riot. Chaya Raichik, the woman behind the far-right LibsofTikTok account, may have trespassed at the Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot, according to newly discovered footage found hours after Raichik appeared in her first on-camera television interview. Raichik appeared in an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday where she  called the LGBTQ community a “cult” and baselessly accused LGBTQ people of being “evil groomers.” This is the same rhetoric that Raichik has used over the last 12 months, and via her LibsofTikTok account Raichik has led a right-wing smear campaign against the LGBTQ community and specifically trans people that has resulted in violence including attacks on hospitals providing gender-affirming care. In her Wednesday newsletter, Raichik said that she decided to show her face publicly for the first time “to counteract the rampant issues with the Left’s agenda in America.” However, finally revealing her face may have other unintended consequences for Raichik. (…) Raichik seemingly appears again in GoPro footage filmed at the northwest side of the Capitol lawn that was released by the Justice Department as part of its prosecution of Ronald Sandlin, who was recently sentenced to 63 months in prison for his role in the attack.
