Well well well, isn’t this convenient? Now that Tucker Carlson has released more of the January 6th footage that disproves many of the lame, hateful narratives from the Left (and sadly, two nasty RINOs who are now both officially out of a job) it would appear the committee chairman, Bennie Thompson, is claiming they never had access to the footage.
They just had a bunch of staff go through it.
Can’t even make this crap up.
Thompson said he doesn’t think any of the Jan. 6 members themselves ever had access to the footage — they let only staff view it. "I'm actually not aware of any member of the committee who had access. We had a team of employees who kind of went through the video."

Did he really just throw the J6 Committee staffers under the bus?!
Because it suuure looks like it.
Chair of the January 6 committee says members never had access to J6 video? That they hired people–the ABC showrunner and his team–to handle it? Meaning the J6 lawmakers were really just the presenters? https://t.co/l9WDiz3yaf

It must be REALLY bad for Thompson to feign ignorance …
Either he’s lying or they really did a disservice to these hearings, the American people, and this country.
Of course not. What is the point of a show trial if you have to consider the evidence?

To be fair, the committee was put in place to produce a pre-ordered outcome.
They didn't need to be exposed to any evidence to roll out the playbook guilty verdict.
It's politics, not justice.

Kind of went through the video? A bunch of partisan staffers picked what they wanted. Wow

Don’t forget the ABC producer, he did his part too.
No, you know what? It’s not unreal. It’s too damn REAL for the state of politics today.
So what, this is supposed to be plausible deniability? “My staff never told me…how was I to know?!?!” This is really disgusting and pathetic.

“Kind of went through it”
Three J6 defendants have died.
History will not think on him kindly.

Did you let Rep. @BennieGThompson know that he was the chairman of that committee? I get he's up in years, but if he is that forgetful it is probably time to step aside for the next generation.

It was all cherry picked just like you guys accused Tucker of, so maybe with his cherry picking and your cherry picking we'll see it all

That could work.
I've been saying for years that these DC "staffers" are the ones running Washington. Who are these lifers who wield such power & influence that they control the information presented to lawmakers?

Sounds like they are starting to distance themselves from that debacle

At least it sure looks like they want to.
Benny, Benny, Benny, “the dog ate my homework” might work better.
