“The police facilitated January 6th. This is why they withheld the tapes. The J6 committee should be censured and expelled for lying to the public.”
A public ‘online viewing room’ has been developed for watching Jan. 6 security video, but individual clips released to media or others will have faces blurred.
Congress Releases First Batch of 40,000 Hours of Jan. 6 Footage to Public
By Joseph M. Hanneman, The Epoch Times, November 18, 2023:
More than 40,000 hours of Jan. 6 Capitol Police security video will be made public on a dedicated website starting immediately and ramping up in the coming months, House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-Louisiana) announced on Nov. 17.
However, individual video clips released to media or other requesters will have the faces of identifiable individuals blurred, a senior congressional aide told The Epoch Times. That restriction drew immediate fire from some Jan. 6 criminal case defendants.
“So while we are significantly expanding the amount of clips that will be available and who can request them, we will be blurring faces with respect to individuals who are identifiable,” the source said.
“To restore America’s trust and faith in their government we must have transparency,” Mr. Johnson wrote on X.com. “This is another step towards keeping the promises I made when I was elected to be your Speaker.”
The Committee on House Administration’s Subcommittee on Oversight, chaired by Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), has already posted 90 hours of Capitol security video in the online viewing room. The initial release includes footage previously provided to various media outlets.
“The goal of our investigation has been to provide the American people with transparency on what happened at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, and this includes all official video from that day,” Mr. Loudermilk said in a statement. “We will continue loading video footage as we conduct our investigation and continue to review footage.”
With the release of the J6 footage, one thing is clear:
The America people were robbed.
Robbed of 2020 election
Robbed of our freedoms
Robbed of equality for all before the law
Robbed of free and fair elections
Robbed of our Constitutional rights

And just like that the J6 Committee’s violent insurrection narrative has crumbled
The Capitol Police facilitated the protesters passage through the building
The vast majority of J6ers should be immediately released.pic.twitter.com/Lb1dEGT1yI

Pelosi never released the J6 tapes
The J6 Committee never released the J6 tapes
The DOJ & FBI never released the J6 tapes
Kevin McCarthy never released the J6 tapes
That’s how you know there’s a LOT of footage that destroys the “insurrection” narrative
Time to dig and expose

I don’t think Capitol Police would take restraints off of a protester, FIST BUMP him, and then let him go if this were an actual “insurrection”
