Kevin McCarthy Vows to Release All 44,000 Hours of J6 Footage to the Public


On Wednesday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) stated to Breitbart News that he plans to release to the public all of the tens of thousands of hours of surveillance footage from the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

McCarthy stated that his decision to release the January 6th surveillance tapes to Tucker Carlson was all about transparency. He believes that the public should be able to make their own decisions and that different news organizations get exclusives all the time.

“It is all about transparency. It will just be to Tucker like any news organization. Different people get exclusives. We watched during January 6, CNN would have exclusives all the time,” he said.

McCarthy clarified that it was not just 14,000 hours of tapes as previously reported but actually 42,000 hours. He also expressed concern that certain exits and secure locations were shown on previous releases, including by CNN, which he believes was not appropriate for security purposes.

He continued, “I think it’s a better for transparency that anyone can make their own decision up And as we walk through these these are many more hours of tapes in the January 6 committee told us It’s not 14,000 it’s 42,000 hours.”

Tucker Carlson has slowly released more and more footage he received from McCarthy over the last couple of days. Some of the footage shows a much different rendition of what many Democrats have said in the past.

McCarthy said, “But you know the most interesting thing, when I sat down, when I had the team talk to the Capitol police about making sure they had no problems with the exits showing, they said the January 6 (committee) never asked them that.”

The January 6 committee refers to the special committee established by the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate the events surrounding the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump.

McCarthy was then asked, “Do you intend to release these tapes publicly after you go through and remove anything?”

McCarthy and his team are going through the tapes to ensure that no security breaches are shown before releasing them publicly.

“We asked the Capitol Police, ‘were there any concerns?’ They came back with one and we immediately did that. But it was interesting that one that they had a problem with, Eric Swalwell had [that one] up on the Internet for the last two years showing that part.”
