House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has given Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusive access to 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the Jan. 6 riot, McCarthy sources tell me.
- Carlson TV producers were on Capitol Hill last week to begin digging through the trove, which includes multiple camera angles from all over Capitol grounds. Excerpts will begin airing in the coming weeks.
Carlson told me: “[T]here was never any legitimate reason for this footage to remain secret.”
Reality check: The Jan. 6 committee played numerous excerpts of the footage at last year’s captivating hearings. (See the committee’s archive.)
