WATCH: What We Learned From Day 4 of Committee Hearings Jan 6

The exposure of previously unreleased footage came to light during a committee public hearing Tuesday, when British filmmaker Alex Holder said he had complied with the Congressional agenda and aired all of the footage he filmed in the final weeks of Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign. .

“When we started this project in September 2020, we never could have predicted that our work would one day be subpoenaed by Congress,” Holder wrote in his letter. statement on twitter.

The director said the footage includes exclusive interviews with Trump, his children, and then-Vice President Mike Pence during the campaign trail and before and after the Capitol uprising.

Holder wrote that the series, titled “Unprecedented”, was bought by the streaming service and was due to be released in three parts this summer.

The personnel news also broke as committee members held their fourth public hearing, this time on how Trump’s relentless pressure to cancel the 2020 presidential election led to widespread threats against local election officials and government officials.

Rep. Jamie Raskin, MD, one of the group’s members, told reporters Tuesday afternoon that he was personally contacted by a person who knew about the footage, and that’s when the committee decided to issue a subpoena.

“I haven’t seen it yet, but I know it exists,” Ruskin said.

The footage is the second time the committee will rely on documentary footage from that day to gather evidence for its sprawling, nearly year-long investigation. The first public hearing in early June featured testimony from Nick Quested, another British director who joined the Proud Boys weeks after Trump’s 2020 election loss.

Holder’s statement also said he would appear before the committee to testify on Thursday.
