It’s Always the Tapes, Isn’t It

After we scooped this morning that the Jan. 6 committee has subpoenaed documentarian Alex Holder for his 2020 footage of Donald Trump and his inner circle, Holder confirmed the news in a statement, saying he’s fully cooperating with the probe.

“When we began this project in September 2020, we could have never predicted that our work would one day be subpoenaed by Congress,” he said. “As a British filmmaker, I had no agenda coming into this. We simply wanted to better understand who the Trumps were and what motivated them to hold onto power so desperately.”

Holder added that the project is a three-part series over which he had total editorial control, including filming at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

………

(1) Raw footage from Jan. 6.

(2) Raw footage of interviews from September 2020 to present with Trump, Pence, DONALD TRUMP JR., IVANKA TRUMP, ERIC TRUMP and JARED KUSHNER.

(3) Raw footage “pertaining to discussions of election fraud or election integrity surrounding the November 2020 presidential election.”

Holder is expected to fully cooperate with the committee in an interview scheduled for Thursday. Read the full subpoena.
