Earlier this week, FOX News host Tucker Carlson aired never been seen footage from the unrest at the January 6th ‘Stop the Steal’ rally.
The footage already has been classified as ‘exculpatory evidence’ by many legal scholars who claim that it could go a long way to exonerate participants in the protest, including the now infamous ‘QAnon Shaman’.
Some have said that Department of Justice officials should face professional discipline for prosecutorial misconduct for not making the footage available to defense attorneys representing J6 protesters.
Now, Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) has said that he will release all of the content in the January 6th tapes to the public, rather than just giving them to Tucker Carlson.
House Democrats have criticized McCarthy for releasing the tapes, saying that they are a threat to the security of the Capitol.

Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-Ny.) even went so far as to publicly demand that FOX News investor Rupert Murdoch stop Tucker Carlson from airing J6 footage.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has agreed to a full public release of the security footage recorded at the U.S. Capitol during the events of Jan. 6, 2021.
In an interview with Breitbart News that aired on Thursday, McCarthy discussed his decision to share the footage with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and said defendants who are facing charges after going to the Capitol on Jan. 6 should be able to see the footage.
When asked whether he would fully release the Capitol security footage to the public, the Republican House speaker responded in the affirmative before adding that the footage would first have to go through a security review.
McCarthy’s assurance that he would pursue a broad public release of the security footage comes as a growing number of January 6 defendants have asked for their trials to be delayed so they can review the security footage.
McCarthy told Breitbart he was making no personal judgment about what the security footage shows, but said that “to be fair in equal justice, if there’s any person that’s accused, they should be able to have a right to see the tapes
