My PJ Media colleague Matt Margolis wrote on Friday about the release of 44,000 hours of security video footage from the January 6 riot. More than anything else, the footage shows that the Democrats’ narrative about what happened in January 6 leaves a lot of information out.
It showed that what the Democrats selectively released failed to reveal any exculpatory evidence or anything that contradicted their carefully crafted story. In 44,000 hours of video, there’s going to be plenty of evidence that contradicts their narrative and almost certainly exculpatory evidence for some of the J6 defendants.
Democrats have accused Republicans of wanting to whitewash what happened on January 6. Indeed, Democrats also tried to whitewash events and overwrite their own story.
The problem is that what happened on January 6 was a riot. To attempt to bring some kind of order to what happened and craft a narrative explaining it, as well as organize 44,000 hours of video, the statements of hundreds of eyewitnesses including Capitol police officers, members of Congress, staffers, and the rioters themselves, is impossible.
That Democrats tried the impossible speaks more to their partisanship than any honest attempt to find out what happened that day.
