Rep. Adam Schiff has another Twitter meltdown after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy handed over 40,000 hours worth of footage of the January 6 protests to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Schiff (D-CA), who sat on the January 6th committee, is upset over the development since it will likely expose his lies and propagandists working hard to frame MAGA as domestic terrorists.
“Kevin McCarthy turned over Jan 6 videos to right-wing propagandist Tucker Carlson. A man who spews Kremlin talking points. Suggests Jan 6 was a false flag. And spreads the Big Lie. Make no mistake: This isn’t about transparency, it’s about fueling dangerous conspiracy theories,” Schiff tweeted.
But despite Schiff’s comments about transparency, Americans have the right to see that footage regardless of what his political drivel says.
Since reviewing the footage, Carlson found a number of inconsistencies that go against the Democratic rhetoric. In other words, the footage blows the leftist narrative wide open.
“We believe that access is unfettered. We believe we have secured the right to see whatever we want to see. We’re going to spend the rest of this week taking a look at it, assessing it as honestly as we can, and we’re going to bring you what we find next week,” Carlson told viewers on his show.
Schiff isn’t the only Demcorat worried about the footage.
Former January 6 committee spokesman, Tim Mulvey, blasted McCarthy for releasing the footage in a statement to CNN, saying, “It’s hard to overstate the potential security risks if this material were used irresponsibly” by Carlson or other conservatives.
“When the January 6th Select Committee obtained access to US Capitol Police video footage, it was treated with great sensitivity given concerns about the security of lawmakers, staff, and the Capitol complex,” Mulvey claimed. “Access was limited to members and a small handful of investigators and senior staff, and the public use of any footage was coordinated in advance with Capitol Police.”
Of course, Twitter users torched Schiff for his unhinged rant about the footage being shown to the American public.
