Kevin McCarthy Shares ‘Best Way’ To Release January 6 Tapes

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

The Federal Government has denied American media and J6 defendants the use of over 14,000 hours of the official footage from January 6th, 2021 at the US Capitol, admitting that the shocking details on the videos show what happened that day and knowledge of the truth would actually change the official government narrative and possibly destroy the weaponized use of the U.S. House to smear President Donald J. Trump, his supporters and the participants of that day.

Rumored to be among that footage, according to court documents and J6 investigators like David Sumrall, who have seen the government’s footage,  is bombastic and shocking scenes of people being killed and video showing that the Capitol police and other officials were extremely aggressive on the citizens who had gathered in the area to show their support of Trump.

Sumrall is the founder of Stop Hate and has spent extensive time looking over open source documents, and footage and also as an official J6 investigator- looking at that 14,000 hours.

Eyewitness accounts of the brutality of that day by the Capitol Police have been swept under the rug, and an eyewitness who discounts the government’s agenda has been demonized up to this point.

Philip Anderson was standing next to a woman named Roseanne Boylan, who was killed that day. Anderson’s point of view indicates the rest of the footage we have not seen will be horrific:

“The capitol police almost killed me on January 6th. If it hadn’t been for the Trump supporters, I would be dead. And I have no doubt that the democrat government would have lied about my cause of death the same way they lied about Rosanne Boyland’s cause.

I was holding Rosanne Boyland’s hand when she died. I was getting crushed, gassed, and maced right alongside her. The Capitol police killed her and the media, the January 6th committee, and the Capitol police lied about everything,” Anderson posted on Twitter.

There is also rumored to be footage of Ashli Babbit, an Air Force veteran who was shot and killed in the Capitol by a Capitol Police officer who knew she was unarmed.

Jan. 6th was a deadly day when at least five people died, all of who were supporters of Trump.  The media pushed a narrative immediately that Trump supporters were acting like terrorists and had caused a deadly uprising.  That narrative gave cover to the US Government to censor citizens, claiming their work was being done to pretend they were controlling extremist content.

The release of the footage now would have complex consequences, exposing the likelihood that Americans have been detained over their participation on Jan 6th,  and even tortured in prison and had their civil liberties denied to them over something the government officials and the media created.

For two years, Americans have been fed a constant stream of media to demonize citizens as extremists and terrorists.

Speaker of the House, US Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has made people very, very nervous by saying he is interested in releasing all of those hours of footage to the public, and now he is talking about how he plans to do just that.

The Daily Wire reported on McCarthy’s moves:

The “Twitter Files” serve as a model for how U.S. Capitol security footage from January 6, 2021, could be released to the public, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on Sunday.

McCarthy told Maria Bartiromo, host of Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” he is looking to release the tapes because of the “politicization” he believes has been fostered by former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the January 6 Committee.

The speaker referred to how Twitter, under the leadership of CEO Elon Musk, gave access to troves of internal communications to a group of independent journalists who have been sharing details via “Twitter Files” threads.

“The best way to handle this is exactly the way Elon Musk [did]: Just put all the information out there and let people see what is truth and what is not,” McCarthy said. “So, the best way to do that is to release the tapes. People can know for themselves instead of picking and choosing what views they want people to see.”

Capitol Police say the system of cameras captured more than 14,000 hours of footage between noon and 8 p.m. on the day a crowd of people entered the U.S. Capitol, disrupting lawmakers meeting to certify President Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory.

One particular member of the House Republican conference, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), has hit the airwaves insisting this footage “would give more full context to that day rather than the cherry-picked moments the January 6 Committee tried to use to inflame and further divide our country.”

In an interview with CNN, Gaetz said the footage could provide exculpatory evidence to January 6 defendants. He also dismissed concerns about how disclosing the tapes could jeopardize security. “I think that it’s an argument made by the Department of Justice because they don’t want to expose the extent to which there might have been federal assets or agents enhancing criminal acuity,” he said.

McCarthy told reporters last week he wants to be “very thoughtful” about releasing Capitol security footage but stressed that he is “engaged to do that.”

The speaker told Bartiromo on Sunday that he had not yet seen the videos.

“I just think they should be released,” he added.
