On Monday, the news spread like wildfire that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy had released 41,000 hours of previously unseen footage from the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. This footage had been kept away from public view for two years by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the January 6 Committee members, with no explanation as to why.

Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who had been stripped of his Intelligence Committee assignment by McCarthy due to his history of lying to the American people and abusing his position, was not pleased with the news. Similarly, former Congressman Adam Kinzinger, who had attempted to sell signed copies of the January 6 Committee report on Amazon, was also in a state of distress.
Kevin McCarthy turned over Jan 6 videos to right-wing propagandist Tucker Carlson.
A man who spews Kremlin talking points. Suggests Jan 6 was a false flag. And spreads the Big Lie.
Make no mistake: This isn’t about transparency, it’s about fueling dangerous conspiracy theories.

So Kevin McCarthy shared the surveillance footage, not with the rest of congress, investigators, or anyone like that. It was @TuckerCarlson.
The “elisestefanik’ing” of McCarthy has been breathtaking, and not the man I thought i knew before Trump. Lies lies lies
