J6 committee releases new footage of Capitol events

The J6 committee released new footage from the Capitol riot that included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other leaders responding to people entering the building.

The new video was aired on Thursday by the House select committee and later shared on CNN.

"The footage, recorded by Pelosi's daughter, Alexandra, a documentary filmmaker, was shown during the committee's 10th hearing as an illustration of the president's inaction in the face of grave danger posed by the rioters to the lawmakers forced into hiding inside," the Associated Press reported.

"It wasn't until the evening that the Capitol would be cleared and work would resume. The news that Congress would be able to reconvene to finish its work in certifying the election results was delivered to the congressional leaders not by Trump but by Vice President Mike Pence," it added.

The footage revealed a chaotic series of events, but also led to questions regarding why the footage had not been shown previously.

The committee continues to use its authority to keep the events in the headlines just weeks before the nation's midterms.
