DGA Calls on Doug Mastriano to Release His Insurrection Tapes Ahead of Today’s January 6th Committee Hearing
With the House January 6th committee holding a public hearing today, the DGA is once again calling on Doug Mastriano to release any photos or videos he took when he was at the U.S. Capitol during the insurrection.
It’s been months since NBC News captured Mastriano “holding up his cellphone as rioters in the front of the mob face[d] off with police at the Capitol steps.”

After walking out of his own interview with the committee in “less than 15 minutes,” during which he “refuse[ed] to answer questions,” Mastriano announced he would sue the committee.
Mastriano lied about the extent of his participation in the Jan. 6 insurrection. He paid thousands of dollars to bus Pennsylvanians to the Capitol — and at least five of his supporters have been charged for their role in the insurrection, including one who rode on Mastriano’s chartered buses.
“Pennsylvanians deserve to know what Doug Mastriano did at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th as his fellow insurrectionists beat police officers all around him,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “It’s past time Mastriano release his tapes and stop lying about his involvement in this violent attempt to overthrow our democracy.”
