Former congressional representative Adam Kinzinger drew attention Monday after he expressed his fury over recent news of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) turning over approximately 44,000 hours of surveillance footage captured on Jan. 6, 2021.
He wrote on Twitter that McCarthy is “not the man I thought I knew before Trump. Lies lies lies.”
So Kevin McCarthy shared the surveillance footage, not with the rest of congress, investigators, or anyone like that. It was @TuckerCarlson.
The “elisestefanik’ing” of McCarthy has been breathtaking, and not the man I thought i knew before Trump. Lies lies lies

A similar meltdown was observed from Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) after he similarly reacted to the news.
“Kevin McCarthy turned over Jan 6 videos to right-wing propagandist Tucker Carlson,” complained Schiff. “A man who spews Kremlin talking points. Suggests Jan 6 was a false flag. And spreads the Big Lie. Make no mistake: This isn’t about transparency, it’s about fueling dangerous conspiracy theories.”
A Twitter user reacted to Schiff’s complaints, quipping, “You seem very nervous about what the video will show.”
Former Trump acting director of national intelligence Richard Grenell wrote, “Schiff is *always* against transparency.”
As RedState noted, Schiff infamously garnered a large amount of public attention during a time when he told repeated lies about the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
Many have argued for quite some time that the infamous protests at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, did not amount to an ‘insurrection’ despite relentless attempts by mainstream media outlets such as CNN to claim as much.
It turns out one of those people is the daughter of Nancy Pelosi, Alexandra.
In a video that was apparently filmed and posted with her permission, Alexandra is seen saying to a Jan. 6 defendant that the events observed that day resulted in “the sorriest insurrection in history.” She also commented on the punishment of well-known ‘Q-Anon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley, who received a sentence of 41 months in federal prison over allegedly obstructing an official proceeding.
“The Shaman did nothing…” she opined. “What did the Shaman do? He stood there.”
Alexandra then asked incredulously, “The Shaman got how many months?”

In a move that may come as a surprise to some, Alexandra also spoke about her friendship with well-known conservative commentator and co-founder of Vice Media Gavin McInnes, noting she “went on road trips with him to parties,” and finds it “comical” that he is sometimes labeled as a ‘white supremacist.’
