Back on June 18, 2021, The Gateway Pundit was the first national news website to post on the mysterious Ray Epps and his bizarre antics caught on video in Washington DC on January 5th and 6th.
On the eve of the January 6th protests, a middle-aged man in a MAGA hat showed up, defended Antifa, and told the crowd they needed to “go into the Capitol” on Jan. 6. The man made the demands while standing next to Antifa organizer John Sullivan.
This was the night before the Trump rally of a million patriots. This was the day before VP Mike Pence stabbed President Trump in the back and approved the fraudulent 2020 election results.
The Gateway Pundit identified the man as Ray Epps from Arizona.
Epps did an interview with reporters the night of January 5th after urging the crowd to enter the US Capitol the next day.
Epps was later filmed hurling a massive Trump sign at the Capitol Police during the rioting he was promoting. But Epps was never arrested.
Epps was also one of the first protesters to charge past the barricades in Washington DC.
Revolver News later wrote an expose’ on Ray Epps in October and made him even more famous.
On January 11, 2022 Senator Ted Cruz confronted FBI National Security Branch Executive Assistant Director Jill Sanborn over the law enforcement agency’s involvement on January 6th in a tense exchange during the Tuesday, July 5th Senate Hearings.
Cruz asked the FBI director several straightforward questions like ‘how many FBI agents or informants actively participated in Jan 6th? And is notorious 1/6 catalyst ‘Ray Epps a fed?’
But Cruz was unable to get any real answers from Sanborn during her sworn testimony; the only thing she was able to respond with to the majority of his questions was ‘I can’t answer that.’
Following the testimony, a concerned citizen, “FoiaFan”, FOIA requested the FBI with information on Ray Epps later that day.
On January 11 “FoiaFan” tweeted out the request for documentation on Ray Epps.
The FBI denied the request because it was concerned for Ray Epps’s privacy. This is the same group that sent 20 armed agents and military vehicles to arrest hundreds of Americans across the country for walking into the US Capitol on January 6.
FoiaFan responded to the FBI’s denial to their FOIA request with a list of questions.
Specifically, the FOIAFan requested:
1.) Documents and information concerning whether and why Ray Epps was removed from the FBI’s most wanted list for the Jan. 6 DC riot.
2.) Documents and communications identifying Mr. Epps’s attorneys, if any
3.) Communications with the House January 6th Committee concerning Mr. Epps
“Foiafan” argued that millions of Americans believe Epps to be a fed or agent provocateur.
The Biden DOJ then again denied the request on their files on Ray Epps. The lawless regime does not want to hand over any information on Epps that they are holding due to his right to privacy.
So what is the FBI hiding on Ray Epps?
It is clear that Epps was an operative or cutout for the FBI that day.
Why does Chris Wray’s FBI continue to lie to the American public?
