- Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) defended his decision to release footage of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday, splitting with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who blasted the move after the conservative media personality downplayed the severity of the siege.
