“One of the enduring mysteries of January 6 is the role that intelligence agencies and law enforcement played in the events of that day,” Tucker said. “We know there were some undercover federal agents in the Capitol crowd. Officials have since admitted that under oath. But what exactly were they doing there? The Jan. 6 committee worked hard to hide the answer to that question.” .
“We know from a contemporary videotape that a mysterious figure named Ray Epps encouraged the crowd to enter the capitol,” he added. “For some reason, Epps has never been charged with this. But there is no doubt that he did it. Under public pressure, the January 6 committee finally interviewed Ray Epps. Epps told the committee that he never entered the capitol and therefore never committed a crime. His text messages showed that at 2:12 p.m. he bragged to his nephew that he had allegedly ‘orchestrated’ the protests in the capital.”
“He admitted that he helped bring people there,” Tucker continued. “Yet, curiously, Democrats in Congress consider Ray Epps an ally, not an insurrectionist. Tonight, we can tell you that, at the very least, Ray Epps lied in his sworn testimony before the committee on January 6 . Epps testified that when he sent the text messages to his nephew, he had already left the Capitol to go back to his hotel room. That is not true.”
“The surveillance footage we found shows that Ray Eppss did in fact remain in the Capitol for at least another half hour,” he continued. “Now you’re seeing this on your screen. What was Epps doing there? We can’t say, but we do know he lied to investigators. The January 6th committee probably knew that, too. The Democrats had access to the same tape , but they defended Ray Epps.”
“No honest investigation would do that, but the purpose of the Jan. 6 committee was never to investigate anything,” Tucker said. : The point was to organize a trial for a TV show. From the outset, the tone of the hearings was almost comically overheated and contentious. There is no tragedy in American history that Democrats do not compare to the January 6 protests.”
“Mystery Man” Ray Epps has been the subject of controversy since he was first captured on video in the nation’s capital before and during the Jan. 6 incident that apparently incited protesters to attack the building of capitol
Inexplicably, Ray Epps’ name and photograph were number 16 on the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list, before he was quietly purged. Epps was never charged, but was brought before the partisan J6 committee, despite his suspicious activities before the attack on the Capitol.
In FBI interview transcripts, Epps told the bureau that he expected a bomb to go off near the Capitol building.
“Yes, I thought there might be a problem. That’s why it was there,” Epps told John Blischak, an official with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, in a March 3, 2021, meeting. in Phoenix.
“I was afraid they were going to set off an explosion on one of the side streets,” Epps said, according to a recording of the interview obtained by The Epoch Times. “So we tried to stay in the middle, we tried to get there early, we tried to stay off the sides. And if something like that happened, I had a first aid kit. It could help.”
Based on his activities, Epps appears to have misled the FBI about his intentions in DC and failed to disclose his efforts to incite attendees to commit acts of treason against the US government. Epps told officers he didn’t initially plan to attend a pro-Trump rally, but changed his mind after finding out his son, James Epps Jr., was going.
“I thought something was going to happen in DC, I thought there might be, what do they call, EODs, something like that?” Epps, who is a Marine Corps veteran, appears to have been referring to an IED, or improvised explosive device.
It just so happened that on January 6, a bomb threat was made against the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee, which limited law enforcement resources, a common terrorist tactic. It was the discovery of the bombs that had actually prompted the evacuation of Congress to begin with, and not the threat of the riot itself. Despite surveillance footage of the subject who apparently planted the IED, the suspect remains at large.
Thus, two of the key figures of January 6 remain free and without charges for the siege of the Capitol, which the Democrats have characterized as an “attempted coup” or “insurrection”.
As Politico noted about Epps’ activities on Jan. 6: “Epps was also seen on footage shortly before 1 p.m. on Jan. 6 at the head of a line of Trump supporters who were among the first to breach the Capitol barricades. He whispered something into the ear of Ryan Samsel, who has been charged as one of the first defendants to breach the secure Capitol grounds. Moments later, Samsel and others charged through a barricade , wounding a Capitol Police officer on the other side.”
But the New York Times, no better than an in-house organ for Democrats and the deep state at this point, also appears to have misled readers in an attempt to cover Epps. On June 30, 2021, the New York Times published an article titled Inside the Capitol Riot: An Exclusive Video Investigation. Revolver points out that the Times told an outright lie about Ray Epps:
Ray Epps, an Arizona man seen in widely circulated videos telling Trump supporters on several occasions to go to the Capitol, also appeared to have acted on his own.
The claim that Epps “appeared to have acted on his own” is a lie betrayed by the videos themselves, which show him coordinating with others in the Capitol riots.
In a tip to the FBI on January 8, 2021, Epps apparently omitted the fact that he told people “to go to the Capitol” just days earlier; but he did admit to crimes for which others on January 6 were fully charged.
“I’m guilty of being there and probably going in,” he said at the time. “But I had a point. I was trying to calm them down. I wanted to be there, but I’m trying to calm them down. Everything I can do to help. There’s no need for this kind of behavior. I’ll be your witness.”
The captured videos, unfortunately for Epps, are the testimony of Americans who appear to have misled the FBI. He was shouting encouraging election protesters to commit acts of treason against the US government, such as “entering the building”. He was coordinating with the man who first carried out a violent act on the grounds of the Capitol building. Epps was at the center of it all when it comes to J6.
But not only was Epps not indicted, he was an invited witness for the House Democrats’ partisan subcommittee on Jan. 6. This tells Americans they need to know about the legitimacy of the House Democrats’ January 6 investigation, as well as the real reason Epps was never prosecuted for his alleged illegal activities.
Ray Epps told the FBI he expected a “terrorist attack” on January 6, but forgot to mention his real reasons for being at the Capitol
