Republican lawmakers are calling for investigations into a House committee and its members after the release of security footage that captured the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Rep. Troy Nehls of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah called for the investigation of the now-defunct United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack, which determined that the riot was an attempted coup by then-President Trump. They said the tapes present a much different view of the chaos at the Capitol that day.
“The J6 committee was a sham,” Mr. Nehls said on X. “I knew it then. Everyone knows it now. Let’s investigate the investigators.”
The calls for an investigation of the Democratic-led committee began after House Speaker Mike Johnson announced the planned release of more than 40,000 hours of security video footage from the Capitol that day. The footage will be released in batches over the next several months.
The first round of about 90 hours of footage was released Friday on the website of the House Administration Committee, which reviewed the tapes and authorized their release.
“This decision will provide millions of Americans, criminal defendants, public interest organizations, and the media an ability to see for themselves what happened that day, rather than having to rely upon the interpretation of a small group of government officials,” said Mr. Johnson, Louisiana Republican.
Mr. Trump used social media to laud the speaker’s “courage and fortitude” in making the security video public. He said the tapes “will explicitly reveal what really happened on January 6th.”
Mr. Lee accused two of the committee’s prominent members, former Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, a Republican, and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, a Democrat, of deliberately hiding the security footage.

deliberately hiding the security footage.
Conspiracy to Deprive someone of their Rights is a MAJOR FELONY
It’s to put the Jay6 posse pimps in jail. They had their party and it went nowhere. Time to give all those maggots an insurrectumy.
and just now they are being released? No wonder McCarthy deservedly got the boot.
President Trump lauded Speaker Johnson’s “courage and fortitude” in making the security
video public, saying, “The tapes “will explicitly reveal what really happened on January 6th.”
Two of the useless J6 committee’s members, ousted Repub Liz Cheney of Wyoming,and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, a Democrat, were accused of deliberately hiding the truth-telling security footage.
Let’s not get carried away!
What next? Another sternly written letter??
Why have repub lawmakers been silent about the footage for so long?
Not yet, maybe in a year or so.
Exactly. The same group of GOPe scumbags that killed the Tea Party movement are trying to kill MAGA.
and nothing was done.
Release all the J6 political prisoners now!
