The DOJ has released bodycam footage of the 1/6 attack showing Trump supporters attacking police with flagpoles.
Video is explicit:
NEW: Justice Dept. just released terrifying new footage dated 1/6. Feds say this is ex-NYPD official Thomas Webster (red jacket) brandishing a flagpole, charging at the police and knocking a cop to the ground. The DOJ released this after legal action by CNN and other media outlets. (Warning: explicit) pic.twitter.com/yf7DQQFMWr

The footage shows the assailants, who the Republicans compared to tourists, jumping over the barricades and attacking the outnumbered police with weapons.
The video exposes every single lie Republicans and their media told about the 1/6 attack. The men in the video are not protesters. They are domestic terrorists who attacked police officers who risked their lives to protect the United States government.
The reason Republicans don’t want a 1/6 investigation is because more footage like this is being released.
The truth is in the video, and what it shows is angry white men with Trump flags attacking police officers and the US government.
