The DOJ has released bodycam footage from the 1/6 attack that shows Trump supporters attacking the police with flag poles.
Video is explicit:
NEW: Justice Dept. just released horrifying new footage from 1/6. Feds say this is ex-NYPD officer Thomas Webster (red jacket) wielding a flagpole, rushing at police & tackling a cop to the ground. DOJ released this after legal action by CNN and other outlets. (warning: explicit) pic.twitter.com/yf7DQQFMWr

The footage shows the attackers that Republicans compared to tourists jumping the barricades and attacking the outnumbered police with weapons.
The video debunks every single lie that Republicans and their media have told about the 1/6 attack. The men in the video aren’t protesters. They are domestic terrorists who were attacking police officers who were risking their lives to protect the United States government.
The reason why Republicans don’t want a 1/6 investigation is that it will result in more footage like this being made public.
The truth is in the video, and what it shows is angry white men with Trump flags flying, attacking cops and the United States government.
