The Blaze published a fascinating investigative report on what happened in the Capitol building on January 6, 2021.
The report is shocking. They thank House Speaker Mike Johnson, who permitted them to release the video.
They claim that Capitol CCTV footage contradicts the testimony of Special Agent David Lazarus, a member of Nancy Pelosi’s security detail. Lazarus testified that another Capitol police officer had told him he’d had a confrontation with Oath Keepers. The Blaze report, however, says that what Lazarus said couldn’t be true.
Steve Baker, an investigative journalist on the story, takes us through the timeline and claims that Lazarus wasn’t at the scene of the purported event when it happened. They also point out that there are other contradictions in the testimony, as well as who saw what and when.
This is truly wild, and disturbing.

The media simply reported the story, without any question. They were sentenced to long prison terms for the Oath Keepers who claimed they stood in line with Officer Harry Dunn and more aggressive people, helping him.
For example, here’s how the Huffington Post covered the story.
As part of their defense, the group claimed that they helped Dunn repel the attack and were present at the Capitol as extra security. David Lazarus was also a witness who said that this wasn’t true.
Lazarus is a special agent who was part of Pelosi’s protection team. He recalled the Oath Keepers who were wearing tactical gear harassing Dunn while he resisted them.
He testified that “it was a very antagonistic dialog between the people in [tactical] equipment — the rioters, and Dunn.”
What is the most disturbing part of this story? According to The Blaze, these videos were hidden from the public so that the defense could not use them to defend their clients. Baker said he confirmed this with the defense. This is a big problem if it’s true. The footage was theirs by law. They should have had access to it. The video footage should have been released a long time ago. That would have answered all the questions. Perhaps that is why we haven’t seen the entire video, as it would certainly reveal things.
This report appears to break everything down minute by minute. It will be fascinating to hear what they have to say. Joe Biden is daring to speak about threats to democracy while Democrats are trying to ban Biden’s political opponent’s name from the ballot. Where does our Constitutional Republic stand if you cannot get equal justice before the law? Baker notes that if the above is true, what else might they be lying about?
