A new video was released from DC cop Michael Fanone that came from his bodycam during the Jan. 6 attack.
Revealed on CNN Don Lemon's Wednesday show, the horrifying scene unfolds as some in the crowd ask others not to hurt Fanone. At one point, when he is tased he can be heard saying, "I have kids."
Fanone was tased, beaten unconscious and had his badge, gun and taser taken during the attack. Wednesday, the Justice Department revealed that they have charged Thomas Sibick, a New York man, responsible for taking the badge and radio, the Daily Beast reported.
As Lemon shows in the video, Fanone is knocked unconscious, "and when he came to all he wanted to know was did we take the door back?"
In a House hearing today, Republicans downplayed the violence saying that the attackers were just "tourists" and even "patriots."

Pentagon staff think brain injuries in over 130 American diplomats may have been a Russian military attack
Starting five years ago a group of American diplomats serving in Cuba and China began experiencing severe health issues. In some cases, it has resulted in brain damage.
According to the New York Times, the attacks have continued all across the world and into Europe. The Pentagon thinks the Russian military GRU is behind it. Since December, there have been three additional CIA agents who were attacked and now suffer from serious health issues.
"One occurred within the past two weeks, and all have required the officers to undergo outpatient treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center or other facilities.
"In one case, in 2019, that has not previously been reported, a military officer serving overseas pulled his vehicle into an intersection, then was overcome by nausea and headaches, according to four current and former officials briefed on the events," said the report. "His 2-year-old son, sitting in the back seat, began crying. After the officer pulled away from the intersection, his nausea stopped, and the child stopped crying."
They both got medical attention from the government though it isn't clear what the long-term impact will be on their health.
"The Biden administration has not determined who or what is responsible for the episodes or whether they constitute attacks," said the Times. "Though some Pentagon officials believe Russia's military intelligence agency, the G.R.U., is most likely behind the case of the 2-year-old, and evidence has emerged that points to Russia in other cases, the intelligence agencies have not concluded any cause or whether a foreign power is involved."
Russia continues to deny involvement.
On CNN Wednesday, anchor Chris Cuomo called on Republicans to answer for whether they agree with Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and his conspiracy theories in support of the Capitol rioters.
"Let's be honest, near half this country — at least you guys say you don't want to be a member of either of these parties," said Cuomo. "So you have all of you and the 30 percent of the remaining, reasonable people within Republican ranks. Now for those Republicans, I told you everybody else, ignore the game. For those within the game, because you are the game within the game within that party, are you going to keep paying attention to people like Paul Gosar, who helped incite the insurrection? Will you allow him to speak for you by defending the terrorists, like this?"
"Zero firearms from suspects charged with breaching the Capitol, to my knowledge, not a single person has been charged with a crime of insurrection," said Gosar in one clip. "Was Ashli Babbitt armed? No, she was wrapped in a U.S. flag," he said in another. She was actually wrapped in a Trump flag. "The truth is being censored and covered up. As a result, the DOJ is harassing peaceful patriots across the country," he said in yet another.
"He's got to read it because somebody had to make up all that tripe," said Cuomo. "Harass the peaceful patriots? Charging them with crimes is harassing them? These are peaceful patriots? Attacked more than 100 police officers on January 6th, a day of infamy, what's been declared an act of terror? He is full of it, and he knows it. He knows the truth. But he's playing the game. Change the game."
