Release of January 6 footage aims for transparency
House Speaker Mike Johnson announced the release of thousands of hours of January 6, 2021, Capitol attack footage, fulfilling a promise to his party's far-right members. Around 90 hours will be available on a public committee website, with the rest to follow. The move has received support from figures like Matt Gaetz and Donald Trump. The footage will be blurred to protect individuals, with some sensitive information withheld. The release aims to provide transparency and counter a narrative favorable to Trump.
