(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) It was revealed that the newly elected Speaker of the House of Representatives Mike Johnson, R–La., will resume the gradual release of the Jan. 6, 2021, surveillance footage that was promised and later stalled under his predecessor, Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.
Steve Barker of The Pragmatic Constitutionalist and a contributor for Blaze Media announced that the process for approval has already begun in one of his Twitter posts.
“I’m pleased to announce the approval process for @theblaze to release #Jan6 Capitol CCTV videos and images is back on track under @SpeakerJohnson’s sanction. I will post images and an official statement here on X later today or first thing tomorrow. Stay tuned,” he wrote.
In a separate post on the social media platform, Nick Sortor, an independent journalist, also shared this information, Trending Politics reported.
“Mr. Speaker, you are out of compliance with the agreement that allowed you to assume this role,” Gaetz told McCarthy in the run-up to him spearheading the removal of McCarthy as Speaker.
The news source added that it is likely that in the closed-door discussions that led to Speaker Johnson’s leadership, a similar condition was given to the new Speaker from Louisiana.
After McCarthy released a limited amount of footage to Tucker Carlson in March, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D–N.Y., called upon Fox News to shut down Carlson, claiming that “our democracy depends on it”.
“These lies continue tonight. Rupert Murdoch, who was admitted they were lies, and said he regretted it has a special obligation to stop Tucker Carlson from going on tonight. Now that he’s seen how he has perverted and slimed the truth and from letting him go on again and again and again. Not because their views deserve such a propium, but because our democracy depends on it,” Schumer said.
Carlson was fired from Fox News six weeks after he aired the tapes. After the tapes were released, McCarthy vowed to turn over all 42,000 hours of footage, which he failed to do.
