Prokupecz said that there were people “who believe that this insurrection just didn’t exist, that this was just people trespassing, people who just don’t believe what they have seen before their very eyes.”
He mentioned one man he had met who insisted that no officers were assaulted on Jan. 6 and it was just people trying to enter the Capitol to protest in a public building.
“You could just tell he was living in his own kind of reality,” said Prokupecz.
He pointed out there were videos of the assaults on the officers, property destruction, and so on, but the man said he had not seen any of them.
Prokupecz and his producer showed him videos on their cell phones, but “he still didn’t believe it,” insisting that it wasn’t assault.
