Prosecutors Lose Fight To Keep A Set Of Jan. 6 Capitol Surveillance Videos Under Seal
Federal prosecutors on Tuesday were forced to release a new set of surveillance videos from the protest on January 6th following a court order by a judge, reportedly rejected arguments by the government that the viewing of such clips threatens the security of the complex.
The ruling is a huge blow for US Capitol Police and the US Attorney’s office who have intentionally been trying to hide footage of the Capitol Hill Protests on January 6th.
US District Chief Judge Beryl Howell was the man who ordered the release following a request by multiple media outlets.
Footage from the release was posted on social media, with many noting how uneventful the clip court-ordered released clips themselves were.
“This is worse than 9/11 I’ve been told,” noted one user, who shared the video.
Protestors in the clip can be seen walking inside what appears to be the Capitol building on January 6th, 2021, not much else appears to happen during the entire video.
Various actors across the left-wing media have expressed their horror for the January 6th protests, with many going as far to emphatically claim that they were worse than the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, a tragic mass murder that took the lives of almost 3,000 Americans.
There have even been Republicans who have joined forces with the liberal media in order to further push this viewpoint.
“Because there’s been no accountability, it’s given permission to do more of this,” Former Republican strategist Matthew Dowd said on MSNBC. “And not only has it given permission to just average people out there who might do crazy things, it’s allowed the Republicans just to continue this big lie that they’ve pushed across.”
“What would happen if after 9/11 we had done nothing?” he continued.
“To me, though there was less loss of life on January 6th, January 6th was worse than 9/11 because it’s continued to rip our country apart and give permission for people to pursue autocratic means. And so I think we’re at a much worse place than we’ve been.”
For comparison, the protests on January 6th had one fatality, an unarmed female veteran Trump supporter who was proudly shot and killed by Washington, D.C. police officer Michael Leroy Byrd.
