The House Select Committee revealed a new audio clip of the Oath Keepers on January 6.
It shows communications among Oath Keepers that day, the committee said.
In the clip, one man can be heard relishing the prospect of hurting members of Congress.
The January 6 committee released a new audio that it said showed members of the Oath Keepers extremist group, in which one man relishes the prospect of hurting members of Congress, believing that then-President Donald Trump supported it.
The one-and-a-half-minute clip was released on Thursday by the House Select Committee investigating the attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
The clip reveals "communications over a walkie-talkie app among Oath Keepers who were inside the Capitol and others who were sharing intelligence from elsewhere," the committee said in a tweet.
It is unclear who these members are and where exactly they were sharing intelligence from.
The video shared by the committee with the audio shows some members of the Oath Keepers, dressed in tactical military gear, walking around the Capitol Rotunda.
As they do, one man can be heard saying: "CNN just said that they evacuated all members of Congress into a safety room."
A second man responded: "There is no safe place in the United States for these motherfuckers right now, let me tell you."
Shortly after, the first man read out a tweet that had just been sent out by the former president, saying: "Trump just tweeted: 'Please support our Capitol Police. They are on our side. Do not harm them.'"
The second man laughed and responded: "That's saying a lot by what he didn't say. He didn't say not to do anything to the Congressmen."
"Well he did not ask them to stand down ... it's getting real down there ... it's looking pretty freaking radical to me," the second man responded.

The Trump tweet the Oath Keepers were referring to actually said: "Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!" according to The American Presidency Project.
The tweet came almost an hour before Trump tweeted again, writing: "I am asking for everyone at the US Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!"
Some lawmakers criticized Trump for not condemning his supporters' actions more forcefully.
At this point, rioters had long entered the Capitol building, and some people including Trump supporters Ashli Babbitt and Rosanne Boylanhad already died, The New York Times reported.
In July, the Justice Department accused the Oath Keepers of bringing explosives to DC on January 6 and said Rhodes had a "death list" of people they were targeting.
Some members of the group, including Brian Ulrich, Joshua James, and William Todd Wilson have pleaded guilty to seditious conspiracy — the most serious charge leveled at suspected Capitol rioters thus far.
A lawyer for Rhodes did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
