House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has reportedly given Fox News host Tucker Carlson exclusive access to thousands of hours of security footage recorded during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.

First reported on Monday by Axios, the decision to hand the trove of sensitive security footage over to Carlson, who has promoted numerous Jan. 6 conspiracy theories on his program, prompted criticism from many Democrats.

“It’s hard to overstate the potential security risks if this material were to be used irresponsibly,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., former chair of the now-defunct House select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 riot, in a statement issued late Monday.
