the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riots has subpoenaed a documentary filmmaker who reportedly has never-before-seen footage of Trump and his family during and immediately after the deadly siege on January 6.
the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riots subpoenaed British documentary filmmaker Alex Holder on Tuesday to get the never-before-seen footage of Trump.
British documentary filmmaker Alex Holder has now confirmed that he had complied with a subpoena from the Jan. 6 committee to turn over never-before-seen footage of former President Donald Trump.
Holder had access to Trump, as well as his family members during his documentary series about the final six weeks of the former president Trump’s reelection campaign in 2020. He said the footage he turned over includes “unparalleled access” never-before-seen interviews with Trump and never-before-seen footage of the Capitol riot.
“As a British filmmaker, I had no agenda coming into this,” he said. “We simply wanted to better understand who the Trumps were and what motivated them to hold onto power so desperately.”
CBS News reporter Robert Costa’s reported that the Trump campaign officials were blindsided by the camera crew, which showed up at the Trump campaign’s headquarters
“They also remember it being odd because campaign’s legal team seemed surprised, as if it was an unvetted project,” writes Costa. “The campaign’s lawyers were like, ‘Huh, what is this? What’s going on today?’ Saw it as another side project from the family/Trump confidants.”
the British filmmaker’s documentary series, Unprecedented, is set to be released in three parts this summer, Holder said
