What Footage Did Holder Turn Over to Congress?
Clips of the documentary that made it to the House Select Committee include Trump talking about Jan. 6.
“Well it was a sad day, but it was a day where there was great anger in our country,” Trump said in the footage. “People went to Washington primarily because they were angry with an election they think was rigged. They were angry because they’re smart.”
Another snippet shows former Vice President Mike Pence receiving an email detailing a draft resolution from Contgress asking that he remove Trump from office through the 25th Amendment.
In the video interview, Pence reads the e-mail on his phone, says “excellent,” then asks a staff member to “print me off a hard copy for the trip home.”
Pence then tells Holder “I”m always hopeful about America. I always believe that America’s best days are yet to come.”
