Voter on Jan. 6 hearings: They’re after Trump, not the truth

Trump aides didn’t know someone was filming Trump on January 6 until the House committee got the footage: reports





The footage was subpoenaed by the Jan. 6 committee, and Politico said it was handed over.It is not yet clear what new information the video may give on Trump’s actions that day.
Aides to Donald Trump had no idea a documentary filmmaker had recorded the former president on Jan. 6, 2021, until the House committee investigating that day subpoenaed the footage, reports said.




The existence of the footage shot by UK documentarian Alex Holder was first reported by Politico on Tuesday.

The outlet said that Holder complied with the House committee request and handed over several months of footage of Trump, up to and including footage he took on Jan. 6.




The New York Times reported that many top Trump advisors were surprised by news of the project, which only a small circle of close Trump aides knew about.

According to the Times it had been organised by Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and was meant to be a “legacy project” for Trump.




The Times gained access to some of the footage, which showed Ivanka Trump in an interview speaking in support of her father’s attempt to undermine the election result.

That statement contradicted her claims elsewhere that she had instead rejected his election-fraud claims after learning they were not supported by evidence.




Trump’s 2020 campaign aides told CBS reporter Robert Costa that they remembered a documentary crew coming to film at the campaign’s HQ and that the project had surprised campaign lawyers.

Trump aides told Rolling Stone that they had “no idea” the film crew had had months of access to Trump and his family.

“What the fuck is this?” a former campaign official texted the outlet.




It is unclear what, if any, new insights could be contained in the footage.

The committee says that Trump was at the center of a sprawling attempt to overturn his defeat in the 2020 election, culminating in the attack on the Capitol.




The case against Trump centers on the notion that he knew his election-fraud claims were false, but pushed them anyway, hoping to cling to power and use the grievance to raise vast sums of money.

One former Trump aide has testified to the committee that Trump told her privately that he knew he lost to Biden in the election.




In a statement Tuesday, Holder said that he had been motivated in making the film by a desire to understand the Trumps.

“As a British filmmaker, I had no agenda coming into this. We simply wanted to better understand who the Trumps were and what motivated them to hold onto power so desperately,” he wrote.

  1. You dumb assholes don’t even understand that the evidence for the election theft is beyond overwhelming? How are you even smart enough to breathe???

  2. Seeing as anatomical breathing refers to the natural extension and flexion motion of the body and spine in the sagittal plane, with each extension of the lumbar spine (increased lordosis) facilitating inhalation and flexion (loss of lordosis) facilitating exhalation..the intra-thoracic changes in pressure facilitating what is known as inhaling and exhaling, or what is more colloquially called, “breathing”..and that while humans do have conscious control over this subconscious system, the evolutionary reflexive physiological controls of the body and survival mechanism response in the brain will alter breathing automatically to “get what the body needs” regardless of what you consciously “think” your body needs…
    Similarly, perhaps the cause for one to believe that “evidence is overwhelming” and we’re simply “dumb assholes” is rooted in a learned cognitive reflexology that indoctrinates the subject to believe in the illusions, thus creating a requirement for the subject to subvert reality in order to avoid a psychotic break. This can be a result of actual victimization from an external source of abuse, or can be resultant of one’s own self-victimization.

  3. Well they hate The People’s President! What they should know is we the people hate this government. We will vote President Trump back into the White House in 2024. And then we will be asking for term limits for congress WE HAVE TO REMIND THEM THEY WORK FOR US. Demented Joe can be heard telling a voter that he does not work for him then remembered the Cameras

  4. It’s as plain as the nose on your face, we all saw the crimes being committed in real time. Tell me how in the FUCK didJoe Biden received 600,000 votes in 3 minutes? The insurection actually took place on November 3rd 2020. Wake up Americans, they consider all of us useless eaters and want us dead.
