Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee has called for a probe into the now-defunct House January 6 committee, accusing past and current members of the committee of “deliberately” concealing evidence from the Capitol riots.
Lee’s remarks come after House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) began releasing more than 40,000 hours of film shot in the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, when demonstrators upset with the results of the 2020 election entered the hallways of Congress.
In a series of tweets highlighting the release of the video, Lee questioned the character of former Republican congressmen Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.
“Why didn’t Liz Cheney and Adam Kizinger ever refer to any of these tapes? Maybe they never looked for them. Maybe they never even questioned their own narrative. Maybe they were just too busy selectively leaking the text messages of Republicans they wanted to defeat,” Lee wrote in a post, which included a video that purportedly showed Capitol police officers facilitating the passage of protesters through the building that day.
