(TotalConservative.com) – Fox News Host Tucker Carlson and his team were granted access to recorded footage including some 41,000 hours of video footage from the Capitol taken on January 6th, 2020. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy was responsible for the decision to release the data. The move was one of the key points House Freedom Caucus members requested which drew out McCarthy’s confirmation as Speaker to fifteen rounds of voting.

McCarthy has publicly stated that he believed more footage should be made available while accusing Democrats of a partisan investigation with their Select Committee. Many Republicans condemned the investigation led by former Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a political circus with the sole intention to blame former President Donald Trump for the riot that followed his rally. The only Republicans on that committee were Reps. Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, who were regular critics of Trump. Some have branded them RINOs or Republicans in name only.

Carlson and others have wondered if there is more to the story, with the possibility of the involvement of the FBI and other federal agencies. Some have even suggested the riot was a false-flag attack primarily engineered by leftists in order to silence any questions over the legitimacy of the hotly contested 2020 Presidential election.

Carlson produced Patriot Purge in 2021, a documentary series that shows an alternative interpretation of the events from the corporate press and Democratic establishment. That series was so controversial that two producers resigned from the network.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has been insistent that the public needs to see the footage and have a full accounting of the day’s events. Carlson pointed out that “evil thrives in secrecy” during an interview with Gaetz in January. During his interview, Gaetz told viewers that he expected to learn to what extent federal officers, agents, or assets were involved in promoting criminal activity, as well as any exculpatory evidence that may help prove J6 defendants innocent.

One can only assume that the Department of Justice has been concealing embarrassing or narrative-damaging details by refusing the disclosure thus far, perhaps it would be more aptly named the Department of Injustice.
