Sen. Mike Lee called for an investigation of the House Jan. 6 Committee after security footage from inside the Capitol was released, accusing the committee of selectively ignoring evidence.

Lee questioned why Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger did not refer to the tapes showing police assisting rioters, suggesting they were too busy selectively leaking text messages of Republicans they wanted to defeat.

“Why didn’t Liz Cheney and [Adam Kinzinger] ever refer to any of these tapes?” Lee posted. (Trending: Biden Baffles Thanksgiving Guests With Bizarre Joke)

“Maybe they never looked for them. Maybe they never even questioned their own narrative,” he pressed.

“Maybe they were just too busy selectively leaking the text messages of Republicans they wanted to defeat.”

House Speaker Mike Johnson began releasing 40,000 hours of security camera footage from the Capitol riots, aiming to provide transparency and allow people to see what happened.

“This decision will provide millions of Americans, criminal defendants, public interest organizations, and the media an ability to see for themselves what happened that day, rather than having to rely upon the interpretation of a small group of government officials,” Johnson said.

Over 1,100 people have been charged with crimes related to the riots, and more than 400 have been charged for assaulting police officers, causing an estimated $1.5 million in damage to the Capitol building.
