Kevin McCarthy Says He's Releasing Them ALL

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has made a pledge that he will release all security footage from the January 6 Capitol riots.

"I want to be very thoughtful about it, but yes, I’m engaged to do that," McCarthy said when asked by reporters whether he would release footage from Jan. 6.

McCarthy added:

I think the public should see what happened on that day. I watched what Nancy Pelosi did, where she politicized it. Where for the first time in the history as a Speaker, not allowing the minority to appoint to a committee. We watched the politicization of this. I think the American public should actually see what happened instead of a report that’s written on a political basis.

McCarthy Relasing Jan. 6 Footage

"Republican Representative Matt Gaetz who led the charge against McCarthy during the numerous speakership votes, claimed that McCarthy promised to release the January 6 Capitol footage as one of his concessions to the anti-McCarthy holdouts," reports Breitbart.

Gaetz told Charlie Kirk:

Kevin McCarthy told us he‘s going to get the evidence out in front of the American people, and that means releasing the 14,000 hours of tapes that have been hidden. That I think would give more full context to that day, rather than the cherry-picked moments that the January 6 committee tried to use to inflame and further divide our country.

Gaetz thanked McCarthy in a tweet after a video of McCarthy's comments was released.

"Thank you to the 20 patriots who helped EARN this commitment from the Speaker," Gaetz tweeted. "Thank you @SpeakerMcCarthy for affirming this commitment you made. Keeping promises is how trust is built. I’m growing more optimistic by the day!"
