Newsweek, November 2023
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has called on House Speaker Mike Johnson to create a new select committee to investigate the January 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Johnson said on Friday that he plans to release publicly thousands of hours of footage from the attack. This would fulfill a pledge he made last month to right-wing members of the GOP when he was campaigning for the job following the ousting of former Speaker Kevin McCarthy. An initial batch of security footage was released on a public committee website on Friday, with the rest of the 44,000 hours of footage expected to be uploaded in the coming months.
“Releasing the tapes is not enough!” Greene, a Georgia Republican, wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter, on Sunday. “There needs to be investigations and ACCOUNTABILITY for ALL of the lies, deceit, and lives ruined. Every member of the Jan 6th committee, Nancy Pelosi, FBI, DOJ [Department of Justice], DC Police, Cap[itol] Police, Jan 6 witnesses who lied, all need to be subpoenaed.”
