Speaker McCarthy refuses to say if January 6 was “mostly peaceful”
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy refuses to say if he thinks the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was “mostly peaceful.” McCarthy released more than 40,000 hours of security footage from the day of the insurrection to just Fox News host Tucker Carlson who continues to downplay the severity of the attack saying it was less “deadly” than it’s been portrayed. Former Republican U.S. Congressman Adam Kinzinger was a member of the House Select Committee that investigated the January 6 insurrection. He tells Anderson Cooper he thinks McCarthy’s goal is to win over Tucker Carlson and the base of the Republican party.
