British filmmaker said he doesn't think the Trump family takes culpability for Jan. 6.
Alex Holder documented the Trump family during the 2020 campaign trail.
The Jan. 6 committee previously subpoenaed his footage.
A British filmmaker who followed former President Donald Trump during the days of January 6, 2021, says that he doesn't think he and his family take responsibility for the Capitol riot.
During an appearance on CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, host Robert Costa asked documentarian Alex Holder if the Trump family "feel any culpability for what happened?"
"In my interactions with them, no, not at all. I mean I think President Trump, when I interviewed him in Mar-a-Lago, he doubled down on the position. In fact, he even says that the reason why the protesters went into the Capitol on January 6th was that they had believe that the election was stolen."

"With respect to his children, they declined to discuss the subject of January 6th. So, I think that their silence will be for others to determine what that really means," Holder said.
Holder's three-part series, titled "Unprecedented" was released on Sunday on Discovery+, shows interviews with Trump's family, surprising his aides. Footage from the documentary was subpoenaed by the House committee investigating the riot.
Allies of the former president claimed that Holder gave the family editorial control over the documentary, which the filmmaker debunked: "The Trumps did not have editorial control," Holder tweeted in June. "Full stop."
During the interview, Costa asked Holder if he thinks Trump will run for office again, to which he responded, "I don't know."
He continued: "He tends to not do the same thing twice when he fails. And I think the reason for that, and this is what the series shows, is that it's all about the brand. It's all about the word "Trump." And the association of the word "Trump" to failure is something that he can't accept and his kids can't accept."
