“I’m excited to share the good news that, just as I promised, the J6 tapes are being released!” Greene tweeted.
“@SpeakerMcCarthy has given @jsolomonReports, @Julie_kelly2 , and a third outlet unfettered access to the J6 tapes, and their reporting on it starts tomorrow.
“This is the transparency the American people deserve and I look forward to their reporting!”
Greene earlier this month called for the public release of the video footage.
“A lot of people are asking me when we are going to release the J6 video tapes,” Greene wrote in a May 11 tweet.
“Well I’m wondering the very same thing and waiting too. The American people paid for the video cameras that are installed all over the Capitol building that they also pay for.
“And most of all the riot scenes have been shown repeatedly a gazillion times in loop for over two years anyways.
“It won’t give the Democrats anything new, but it might give us all something new.”
Greene in the May 11 tweet suggested that publicly releasing the video footage would prevent Democrats from using the insurrection to their political advantage.
“January 6, 2021 is the most politicized day in American history and Democrats are going to base their entire 2024 campaigns attacking Republicans and President Trump about J6 because their party and their policies are SO BAD and America Last that they have no record to brag about, only tremendous failure,” she wrote.
“Over 1,000 people have been arrested, charged, served time, and are still awaiting trial AND the Democrat weaponized DOJ says they are arresting 1,000 more.”
Greene claimed that the footage shows that U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s was not related to the insurrection “like ALL the Democrats and the media told you.”
“Yes well the rest of the video footage needs to be released to THE PEOPLE because it’s hard to lie to people all the time when they can go look at it and form their own opinion,” Greene wrote.
“AOC and the well funded anarchist communist groups that support her are still organizing riots against police because she’s big mad at another white guy for bravely defending people from a dangerous known criminal who died later, instead of the innocent law abiding tax paying citizens who suffer from her horrible America Last Criminal First Democrat policies, and none of her Antifa ground troops are rotting in jail.”
Greene added: “We need to release the J6 tapes to a public on line source so that everyone knows what did and didn’t happen, we need to restore fair justice, and America can move on.”
Greene’s announcement that the tapes will be released to three outlets drew rebuke from a far-right Twitter user with 1.7 million followers, who suggested the announcement was a way of mitigating political fallout among conservatives over the debt ceiling compromise.
“Again ... the promise was to release it to the public,” Twitter user “Catturd” wrote on the social media site.
“Releasing it to 3 members of the press is a million miles away from that…and this is being released today to soften the blow of McCarthy caving and screwing us again” on the debt ceiling deal.
“Tired of these games.”
