    McCarthy Vows To Release Remaining Jan. 6 Footage To Public

    Published on

    After releasing over 40,000 hours of unseen footage from the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is unconcerned by the criticism of Democrats and the mainstream media. McCarthy shared the unseen footage with Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson, who aired the footage on his program for multiple days.

    McCarthy released the recordings to the media and promised to make them available to the public once his team has reviewed all of the footage and addressed any potential security concerns.

    “This is the challenge. The Democrats told us it was only 14,000 hours of tapes, lo and behold, we take the majority and it’s 42,000 hours, so that would take me years to go all the way through,” McCarthy told reporters. “Yeah, I think the public should see what’s happened to them.”

    “We’ve worked with the Capitol Police [to] tell us about [any] section that there was a problem. And that takes a long time. But we want to make sure everybody has the opportunity to come and see what they want,” he said. “So we’ve created the process to make that start happening.”

    Now, nearly a month after his promise, multiple major media outlets are exerting pressure on McCarthy to release the footage.

    “Nine major media organizations have sued the Justice Department and the FBI for access to the video footage of the Jan. 6 insurrection. The nine include The New York Times, CNN, the Associated Press, and ProPublica. Public materials must be truly public. If Mr. McCarthy can give the stash to one talk show host, he can, and should, give it to every media organization and the public at large,” The Post-Gazette reported.

    “That’s why the speaker must release the material to everyone. Everyone must have the chance to watch it and decide the narrative, and the more narratives we have, the better chance the public has of knowing what happened,” the outlet added.

    House Republicans are initiating their own version of a committee on January 6 that will “reinvestigate” the events of 2021 at the U.S. Capitol.

    Rep. Barry Loudermilk, a Georgia Republican, will chair the new panel, which he says will “investigate both sides” and “show what really occurred on January 6.”

    CBS News reported that Loudermilk stated that the panel would contemplate requesting an interview with former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as well as any decisions made regarding Capitol security prior to January 6.

    On January 6, 2021, House Republicans issued a scathing report implicating Pelosi in security and intelligence failures at the U.S. Capitol.

    Emails and text messages from Pelosi’s office reveal that her staff held regular meetings to discuss security detail, assisted authorities in revising their plans, and denied multiple requests from federal law enforcement needed to secure the Capitol on that day.

    “Days after Pelosi’s Jan. 6 select committee recommended insurrection charges against former president Donald Trump over the Capitol riot, Republicans have hit back with a counter-investigation apportioning blame for the internal security breakdown on Jan. 6 to Pelosi and a dysfunctional Capitol Police intelligence division,” New York Post reported.

    The New York Post said:

    House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving, who answered to Pelosi as one of three voting members of the Capitol Police Board, “succumbed to political pressures from the Office of Speaker Pelosi and House Democrat leadership,” was “compromised by politics and did not adequately prepare for violence at the Capitol.”

    Pelosi and her staff “coordinated closely” with Irving on security arrangements for the January 6 Joint Session of Congress, but Republicans were excluded from “important security discussions.”

    And, in an apparent attempt to hide from Republicans the fact that they were being excluded from discussions, Irving asked a senior Democratic staffer to “act surprised” when he sent “key information about plans for the Joint Session on Jan. 6, 2021, to him and his Republican counterpart.” CONTINUE READING…
