On Friday, Speaker Mike Johnson fulfilled his commitment to release security camera footage from the January 6, 2021 protests at the US Capitol.
The videos were uploaded to the Committee on House Administration website, with around 90 already available and more promised in the days ahead.
An intriguing clip showed a Capitol Police Officer un-cuffing and fist-bumping a protester near an exit point.
The video begins with an officer escorting a detainee dressed in a helmet and protective gear towards the Capitol’s entrance.

🔥🚨BREAKING: The recent release of the J6 videos by Speaker Johnson appears to be proving the insurrection was an inside job.
In this video alone we can see that Capitol police release a ‘protester’ and allowed him to keep his gear after he got out of view. pic.twitter.com/p78iVQ8bLE

This newly released J6 video is BIZARRE. All of these dangerous “insurrectionists” casually walking the halls… right next to Capitol Police and FBI agents in full riot gear. WHAT is going on here?
