Matt Gaetz and Lauren Boebert, both Republican House members, said in February that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy had promised to release all surveillance footage of the January 6 incidents at the Capitol Building.
“The American people deserve to know the truth about what happened on January 6th. We have demanded to see all the footage. Transparency is coming,” Gaetz declared. “Every time from the JFK files to 9/11, to now January 6th. It’s our own government, our own Department of Justice that seems to stand in the way of transparency.”
In addition, he renewed his request that the House floor be covered by additional CSPAN cameras.
“If we had cameras on the floor, my suspicion is we would have far better attendance during debates that impact the lives of our fellow Americans,” he claimed.
Representative Boebert continued, “Speaker McCarthy says he’ll be releasing ALL the footage from January 6th. Considering all the public has seen are edited clips from a bunch of Democrats with an axe to grind, it sure will be nice to get some unbiased footage.”
“I think the public should see what happened on that day,” McCarthy said in a press conference. “I watched what Nancy Pelosi did, where she politicized it. … I think the American public should actually see what happened instead of a report that’s written for a political basis.”
On January 6, I was filming at the Capitol and realized there was no “insurrection.” While it took a bit longer than most of us would have liked, the House security film has been released, and to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to boot. I shared my footage at the request of the March for Trump organizers in order to assist clear everyone who was present.
Now, in an effort to prevent Trump and other Republicans from running for office again, House Republicans are targeting the fake committee that “investigated” the events of that day.
“Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), chairman of the House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight, is leading an investigation of the dissolved Jan. 6 select committee and security failures surrounding the riot,” The Hill reported.
The probe is in its beginning stages, Loudermilk said Wednesday.
“We’ve got to get through the documents. We need to do some interviews with people. But at some point, we will have some hearings,” Loudermilk said, also adding the panel is reviewing video from Jan. 6, 2021. CONTINUE READING…
