    Mike Johnson’s Jan. 6 Tape Admission Raises Questions – By Natalie Venegas (Newsweek) / Dec 5, 2023

    House Speaker Mike Johnson’s admission on Tuesday that the unreleased January 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riot video footage will have faces of those involved blurred is raising questions across social media.

    Johnson, a Louisiana Republican, announced on November 17 that his office would release the complete archive of footage recorded when supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, to protest the results of the 2020 election. He promised to release the roughly 44,000 hours in total footage during his run for speaker.

    Johnson released an initial 90 hours of footage in November, shared by the Committee on House Administration, but two weeks later no further footage has been released. While the Associated Press said the rest of the footage was expected over the coming months, The Hill reported it was expected that it would be released on November 20.

    On Tuesday, while answering a question at a news conference about releasing more internal batches of the footage, Johnson said that he is going through a methodical process of releasing them.
