A United States Congressman has demanded that the Capitol Police release tapes from January 6th over “demonstrably false” allegations
Representative Rodney Davis (R-IL.) is demanding that Capitol Police release the footage from January 5th, 2021 over “demonstrably false” claims by the Jan. 6th panel against Republican Congressman Barry Loudermilk (GA.)
The panel accused Representative Loudermilk of leading “reconnaissance tours” at the Capitol on January 5th, 2021 in preparation for the protests the following day.
Representative Davis is standing up against the bogus claims for his fellow Congressmen.
From the Epoch Times:
This charge, Davis said, “is demonstrably false. As you are aware, [Administration] Committee Minority staff have reviewed all footage in question and have confirmed no ‘reconnaissance tours’ occurred.”
Davis also foresaw and rejected claims that the tapes he requested would pose a security risk if released to the public, noting that the same tapes have already been made public in some capacity.
“Any argument that this footage represents sensitive ‘security information’ was destroyed once the Board provided copies to Democrat impeachment managers for public dissemination or it otherwise became available to the public,” Davis wrote.
Davis concludes by stating that if the board refuses to release the footage, he will exercise his authority under 2 U.S.C. $ 1979 to release the footage himself.
Loudermilk is one of many congressmen to have been smeared by the January 6th panel and or the liberal media as “insurrectionists” for their support of President Donald Trump or for their decrying of the stolen election.
Rep. Davis is convinced that releasing the footage for the public to see would clear Loudermilk, who himself stated that he only met with a constituent family “with young children” at the House Office Building on January 5th.
January 6th has become the rally call against all patriots among radical left Democrats and RINOs, as they continue to persecute anyone they perceive as a political threat using bogus claims of insurrection.
