The revelation of the never-before-seen footage came to light on Tuesday when British filmmaker Alex Holder revealed he had complied with a congressional subpoena to turn over all of the footage he shot in the final weeks of Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.
“When we began this project in September 2020, we could have never predicted that our work would one day be subpoenaed by Congress,” Holder wrote on Twitter.
The filmmaker said the footage includes exclusive interviews with Trump, his children and then-Vice President Mike Pence while on the campaign trail as well as before and after the insurrection on the Capitol.
