Republican House Leadership has apparently taken action to hide criminal behavior.
If the Department of Justice believes the videos at issue constitute evidence, then this video blurring action by House Republicans could constitute obstruction of justice. https://t.co/Qesr8Qeo5G

It could be argued there’s an outside chance Speaker Johnson really believed the Capitol tapes would show ‘peaceful tourists’ quietly browsing the People’s Palace. Or it could’ve been argued, if he hadn’t immediately hustled to cover up criminal behavior by tampering with the evidence. A revered Republican tradition!
House GOP: We need to release all the Jan. 6 footage so people can see what actually happened.
<Jan. 6 footage shows MAGA and QAnon insurrectionists assaulting police, damaging property, and committing other crimes>
House GOP: OK not what *actually* actually happened. Not that. https://t.co/YFBottrRap
