House Speaker Mike Johnson announced Friday the release of 5,000 additional hours of video from the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot. 

The additional video, equal to roughly 208 straight days of viewing, is being released by the House Administration Oversight Subcommittee. 

"House Republicans again commend subcommittee Chairman Barry Loudermilk and the entire Committee on House Administration for their ongoing commitment to ensuring that there is full transparency surrounding the events of January 6," Johnson said.

The release follows Johnson saying in November 2023 that he would make the January 6, 2021, tapes available to the American people and the release of an initial tranche of 90 hours of footage.

There seems to more video in addition to what is being released Friday, with the Administration committee vowing to "continue to release the remaining footage online as expeditiously as possible so that it is accessible to every American."

Some of new video is previously released video that was blurry and re-uploaded in an attempt to make the images clearer, Johnson also said.

“I appreciate Speaker Johnson’s continued support of our efforts and his resolute commitment to full transparency for the American people," Loudermilk said. "Today's decision will significantly expedite CCTV footage releases, all of which will be made available to the American public within the next few months, without blurring or editing. The first batch is already available on our Rumble page.”
