Ramaswamy Schools CNN’s Dana Bash on New Jan 6 Footage Debunking Media Narrative

Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy schooled CNN’s Dana Bash on how the recently released Jan. 6 footage debunks the anti-Trump narrative peddled by her network and other corporate media outlets.

During a post-GOP 2024 debate on Wednesday night, Bash questioned Ramaswamy about his belief that Jan. 6 was likely “an inside job.”

After House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) recently made police bodycam and security footage from the U.S. Capitol public, the video has conflicted with the narrative that the events on January 6, 2021, were a “Trump-incited riot.”

The videos show Capitol Police officers throwing explosives into peaceful crowds and ushering protesters into the building, as Slay News reported.

The new evidence also suggests that FBI agents were operating undercover in the crowds.

Bash, who clearly hasn’t seen the newly released footage, questioned why he was promoting the “conspiracy theory” that Jan. 6 was “an inside job.”

Overwhelmed with cognitive dissonance, however, Bash repeatedly interjected by parroting the media narrative that Jan. 6 was “an attack.”

At one point, Bash interrupted Ramaswamy to declare that Jan. 6 was “the most aggressive offensive attack on the U.S. Capitol, on democracy itself, that we have seen in our lifetime and in many, many lifetimes.”

Despite Bash’s efforts to undercut his point, Ramaswamy schooled the anchor and her viewers about the evidence and called for a proper investigation into Jan. 6.



VIVEK RAMASWAMY: “If you would asked me three years ago, is there some chance January 6 is an inside job, I would have said that was crazy talk.

“I would say, looking at the facts of the video footage that have come out, that it is shocking, that you still haven’t gotten a clear answer of how many federal agents were in the field that day.

“Look at now the video footage of actually throwing explosives and rubber bullets into what was a peaceful crowd, then releasing to the public what came in response to that.

“But now, look at the video footage that was released, and I’m glad we’re talking about it because viewers deserve to look at that footage, Capitol police literally letting people in who were then now prosecuted.

“Some of them gone on to commit suicide because of what the government is doing.

“That is the case of entrapment.

“I think the government has not been transparent about this, which is why I then brought up another case where the government now, 20 years later, would declassify documents, tell us that they lied to us at the time.”

DANA BASH: “Eight hundred and fifty people —”

RAMASWAMY: “I do think we have a government that consistently lied to its people.”

BASH: “An inside job suggests that everybody was — who attacked the Capitol was hard to —”

RAMASWAMY: “I didn’t say that.

“I didn’t say that, but I was saying that there is case — there’s entrapment going on.

“There’s entrapment going on and this looks like a case of entrapment.

“If you look at even over the last —”

BASH: “What do you mean by entrapment?”

RAMASWAMY: “Entrapment means that the police go to people to do something otherwise and the otherwise wouldn’t have done, and then they arrest them for actually doing it.”

BASH: “And you don’t think it was actually the former president who —”

RAMASWAMY: “Let’s — why do you think that was the media narrative? Now, look at —”

BASH: “We heard him — we heard him with our own ears.”

RAMASWAMY: “— case and see what you think about this, right?

“You guys said this for a long time, about the Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping plot, suddenly gone silent after it comes out a trial that — absolutely, that was a case of entrapment, which is why those people were acquitted.

“So, I’m saying this is somebody who, on the other side of this, as a biotech CEO, somebody who was even anti-woke.

“But if I was looking at this, I would have said aloud that this is crazy talk.

“But if you actually get into the details, I think it is startling, how much the government has systematically lied, and I think it’s both parties over the course of the last 25 years —”

BASH: “But on the January 6 —”

RAMASWAMY: “— the Left used to be better pointing this out are being skeptical of the government.

“But now, it is the Right.”

BASH: “— which is the most — which is the most aggressive offensive attack on the U.C Capitol, on democracy itself, that we have seen in our lifetime and in many, many lifetimes, to say without evidence that it was an inside —”

RAMASWAMY: “I’m not saying without evidence.

“I think that what we’re seeing now is the video footage that has come out.

“I was in a different place before a lot of that evidence came out.

“But you have to respond to the evidence. What is your response?

“What is anybody else in CNN response to the video footage that was released of Capital police literally just peacefully allowing people into the Capitol —”

BASH: “What we know —”

RAMASWAMY: “— or shooting into peaceful crowd?”

BASH: “— is that 850 people have been convicted of crime.”

RAMASWAMY: “But the reality is many of them were convicted before that information was released.”

BASH: “Do you think that former President Trump has anything to do with this?”

RAMASWAMY: “You’re bringing up a really good point and your audience and everybody deserves to know the truth about this.

“Normally, there is a rule in constitutional law.

“It’s called the Brady rule.

“You have to turn over exculpatory evidence to the other side.

“In this case, it wasn’t turned over because the DOJ said Congress was sitting on it.”
