Jan 6 Tapes To Be Released


Do Americans deserve the truth?

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) recently announced that additional media outlets will be given access to the Jan. 6 footage from the Capitol attacks. Greene took to Twitter to share the news, stating that the promised release of the “J6 tapes” will take place. According to her post, three outlets will have unrestricted access to the footage, and reporting on it will commence on Thursday. Although Greene mentioned Just the News founder John Solomon and Julie Kelly from American Greatness as recipients, she did not disclose the identity of the third outlet.

The debate surrounding the release of the Jan. 6 tapes to media organizations intensified when House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) granted former Fox News host Tucker Carlson access to over 44,000 hours of footage. This move sparked criticism from Democrats and media pundits, who expressed concerns about potential security risks at the Capitol. During the broadcast of the footage on his program, Carlson controversially referred to the attacks as “mostly peaceful chaos.”


Greene, in response, reiterated her call for the public release of all Jan. 6 footage, expressing her curiosity about the timing of the tape’s release. She emphasized the importance of transparency and the need for the public to know the truth.

Last month, several news organizations filed a lawsuit seeking access to the Jan. 6 tapes, alleging that federal agencies failed to provide the requested footage. The complaint also mentioned that the organizations had requested access from Speaker McCarthy but were informed that there was no specific timeline for granting access.
