House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has reportedly released thousands of hours of video surveillance tapes from the Jan. 6 Capitol breach to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
McCarthy “has given Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusive access to 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the Jan. 6 riot, McCarthy sources tell me,” Mike Allen reported Monday for Axios.
“Carlson TV producers were on Capitol Hill last week to begin digging through the trove, which includes multiple camera angles from all over Capitol grounds,” wrote Allen. “Excerpts will begin airing in the coming weeks.”
Less than two hours after calling for “national divorce” on Monday, Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene followed with a tweet hailing McCarthy’s reported release of the previously withheld security video.
“For all of you that doubted we would release the tapes,” Greene tweeted with a link to the Allen report. “Here you go!
“I’m very happy to be right again in my support for Kevin McCarthy as our Speaker.
“Americans deserve to see the truth, not a one sided narrative and unfair two tiered justice system.”
McCarthy had promised to release the video in a bid to win over conservative holdouts during his fight to become speaker, according to Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz.
