Sandeep Prasanna, who served as an investigative counsel on the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol, commented on House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's decision to make available thousands of hours of surveillance footage of January 6th to Fox News host Tucker Carlson. "I think we should remember that the Jan. 6 attack happened in broad daylight," Prasanna said. "My concern is that I don't see how releasing thousands of hours of footage to one handpicked controversial media figure could ever produce the same factual and careful analysis that the committee produced over that year and a half."
