U.S. Capitol Police officials were not told that the surveillance video of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, which they gave to House Republicans, would be passed on to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the department’s top lawyer said in a sworn court filing.

In a declaration filed Friday in Washington federal court, Capitol Police general counsel Thomas DiBiase said police found out from a media report on Feb. 20 that Carlson’s staff were reviewing thousands of hours of footage from the day of the riot that had not been made public at the time.

The Republican-led Committee on House Administration had requested access to the footage from Capitol police just 12 days earlier, according to DiBiase in the filing, first reported by Politico.
