GOP Says “Transparency Is Coming” 

( )- According to House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, more information concerning what happened on January 6, 2021, will be made public in the days ahead. 

In discussing the new surveillance video of the Capitol breach that appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on March 6-7, Representative Steve Scalise agreed that the public viewing the tapes is a significant development and remarked that “transparency is the greatest disinfectant.”  

Although some have questioned House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) decision to give Carlson exclusive surveillance recordings, Scalise emphasized that McCarthy promised to make the material publicly accessible soon. 

Scalise said that the previously inaccessible films had been published by the House’s biased Jan. 6 Committee and that the recordings had been “cherry-picked” to give one side of the story in response to criticism that the surveillance tape Carlson utilized had been manipulated in a biased manner. 

The majority leader pointed out that some in the press appear to want to speak about Jan. 6 every day, regardless of whether or not the recordings were released. The problem is that they only want to discuss a subset of the whole. Scalise said it’s essential to be honest and share all relevant information. 

He said it’s best to let the public understand that the committee wasn’t simply a charade to push one side of the story. 

Scalise said it was still unclear why the Democratic leadership had turned down National Guard support before January 6. 

Furthermore, Scalise said that he believed Representative Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga) was entitled to an apology after the emergence of surveillance tapes that refuted claims made by certain Democrats that Loudermilk’s Jan. 5 tour was related to the attack. 

I believe every Democrat who questioned him about what happened before January 6th owes him an apology, Scalise added. And I’m still waiting for those apologies to come because they owe it to him since those recordings showed that they inferred things about him that weren’t true. 

To wrap off his comments on Wednesday, the congressman said that the GOP leadership was committed to uncovering the truth regarding January 6 and any abuses of power by government agencies.
