House Republicans Must Expose the Full Truth of January 6

On a near-daily basis, the Department of Justice announces new arrests related to the events of January 6. Authorities arrested a Minnesota man on Wednesday for allegedly obstructing law enforcement and other minor offenses; U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves, appointed by Joe Biden in 2021, trumpeted the news on his office’s X account.

After months of promising to do so, House Republicans finally released the first tranche of surveillance footage captured by security cameras on January 6. The move was lauded by the Right — and condemned by J6 propagandists including members of the now-defunct January 6 Select Committee. Rep. Jamie Raskin accused House Speaker Mike Johnson of “giving a diagram to future insurrectionists & terrorists.” Former Representatives Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney took to X to post well-worn video clips of protesters clashing with police.

But their time of controlling the narrative is over. Millions of Americans will now see video of police officers standing by as protesters walked in the building, some exchanging handshakes and fist bumps. Future video releases could shock the public as it reveals numerous instances of police brutality that resulted in the deaths of three individuals that day.

Which is just one reason why Speaker Johnson’s next move must be the formation of a separate January 6 committee. Tapes only tell a small part of the story; more must be revealed to expose the full truth, redeem those who have been destroyed by the cruel weaponization of the four-hour disturbance, and hold the architects of the Jan 6 fraud accountable.

Here is what a GOP J6 Committee should investigate:

The role of the FBI:

The J6 committee coverup:

Selective prosecution of Capitol protesters

J6 Celebrity Police Officers

Police brutality

Misconduct of federal judges
