In a move that has stirred international controversy, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has called for unlocking frozen Russian bank funds, proposing their redirection to support Ukraine. Addressing the Group of 20 finance ministers in Brazil, Yellen emphasized, “It is necessary and urgent for our coalition to find a way to unlock the value of these immobilized assets to support Ukraine’s continued resistance and long-term reconstruction.”
House Speaker Mike Johnson announced Friday the release of 5,000 additional hours of video from the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.
The additional video, equal to roughly 208 straight days of viewing, is being released by the House Administration Oversight Subcommittee.
"House Republicans again commend subcommittee Chairman Loudermilk and the entire Committee on House Administration for their ongoing commitment to ensuring that there is full transparency surrounding the events of January 6," Johnson said.
The release follows Johnson saying in November 2023 that he would make the January 6, 2021, tapes available to the American people and the release of an initial tranche of 90 hours of footage.
There seems to more video in addition to what is being released Friday, with the Administration committee vowing to "continue to release the remaining footage online as expeditiously as possible so that it is accessible to every American."
