Newly released Capitol CCTV footage has raised serious doubts about the testimony provided by Special Agent David Lazarus, Nancy Pelosi’s head of security, during the Oath Keepers trial.
The footage, made public with the permission of House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), has cast a shadow of doubt over key claims made by the prosecution and raised troubling questions about the integrity of the entire case.
Lazarus was called in as a witness to corroborate another Capitol police officer’s account, which alleged an antagonistic encounter between Officer Harry Dunn and the Oath Keepers on January 6th.
However, the released footage appears to contradict Lazarus’s testimony, suggesting that he was not present at the scene and could not have witnessed the events as described.
The media and Democrat politicians have unquestioningly relied on the testimonies of individuals such as Lazarus to paint the picture of the January 6th events. These narratives have been used to convict individuals, some of whom are now serving lengthy prison sentences.
Many individuals were charged with unlawfully entering restricted areas of the Capitol. This included charges for those who engaged in disorderly or disruptive conduct in the Capitol or on its grounds. Some faced charges for acts of violence or physical confrontation with law enforcement officers.
There were instances where individuals were charged with theft of items from the Capitol. This charge was levied against those who were found to have vandalized or destroyed property within the Capitol.
Pelosi, the Speaker of the House during January 6th at the U.S. Capitol, played a significant role in the response to the incident. On that day, a group of protestors breached the Capitol building as Congress was certifying the Electoral College results of the 2020 Presidential Election.
Following the events, Pelosi was instrumental in calling for accountability and investigation. She supported the creation of a select committee to investigate the January 6th events. This committee, led primarily by Democrats, conducted hearings and collected evidence to provide a comprehensive account of the incident.
One of the most troubling aspects of the report by Blaze Media is the heroization of Officer Harry Dunn based on his alleged actions on that day. President Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi have praised Dunn for his bravery and integrity, further cementing his image as a heroic figure.
If the footage is accurate, it paints a disturbing picture of a potential miscarriage of justice where innocent individuals have been imprisoned while those who testified falsely have been celebrated.
The sequence of events in the CCTV footage is telling. At the time of the alleged encounter between Dunn and the Oath Keepers, Lazarus can be seen in a completely different location, far removed from the scene. His movements are tracked through the Capitol CCTV cameras, which confirm that he was not present during the critical moments.
Moreover, during Officer Lazarus’s trial testimony, he claimed to have returned to the Capitol building after hearing shots fired over Capitol Police radio. However, this event occurred after the alleged encounter between Dunn and the Oath Keepers had already concluded.
It appeared that videos supporting the defense’s case were never released to the defense attorneys, potentially withholding exculpatory evidence that could have cleared the accused.
