Speaker Johnson Will No Longer Blur Faces of J6 Demonstrators; Acknowledged Urgency to Release 5,000 Hours of J6 Footage

Citing the urgency of the cause, House Speaker Mike Johnson reverses the decision to blur 5,000 hours of security footage regarding the January 6 demonstration.

In a statement, Johnson expressed, “Additionally, upon extensive further consultation with the Committee, and at my direction, the Committee will no longer plan to blur the faces of individuals in the footage given the significant logistic hurdles involved and the importance of getting this work completed as responsibly and efficiently as possible.”

Furthermore, the House Speaker commended House Administration Committee Chairman Barry Loudermilk (R-Georgia) for his commitment ensuring to the delivery of the truth surrounding the events of January 6.

“This ongoing work is especially necessary considering the deeply flawed prior investigation conducted by the partisan January 6 select committee, which instead of delivering transparency, has contributed to defendants, public interest groups, and the media having to rely upon the interpretation of a small group of government officials,” said Johnson.

Subcommittee Chairman Loudermilk seconded Johnson’s statement and emphasized his committee’s commitment to providing the public with full transparency and accountability surrounding the events that transpired on January 6.

“As such, we have been working tirelessly to make public all U.S. Capitol Police CCTV footage from that day,” Loudermilk said.

The first batch of the footage was released on Friday at the Committee on House Administration rumble page. The rest of the footage, all 40,000 hours of them, will be available in the next eight weeks.
