The Jan 6th Insurrection narrative is rapidly collapsing.
On Friday, Speaker of the House Johnson made around 90 hours of January 6 footage security footage available via a committee website. There, he said the remaining 44,000 hours of video, taken from surveillance and police body cameras, would be posted over the coming months, fulfilling a vow he made while running for speaker.
That we only saw the Jan 6 excerpts that Liz Cheney and Adam Schiff wanted us to see, while they hid everything they didn’t want us to see (like the below clips), has corrupted everything from the start.
Several short clips from the footage were shared on X, formerly Twitter, where some have received hundreds of thousands of views. Charlie Kirk, head of the group Turning Point USA, shared a 37-second clip showing police officers at one end of a congressional corridor and demonstrators at the other, without any apparent conflict between the two. Kirk wrote: “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,” Kirk added.
