A lot of question about the real identity of Ray Epps has been circulating, however, the top federal law enforcement officials declined to answer these questions. Epps an Arizona resident captured on video encouraging Jan. 6 protestors to breach Capitol Hill.
The DOJ is now acting like Bill Clinton when there were questions thrown at them that they don’t want to answer it like “It depends on the meaning of the word ‘she’.” They were asked yesterday if someone named Ray Epps was an informant for the FBI.
The two agencies’ responses to the curious case of their former person of interest, identified in photo No 16 in an FBI list of people whom the feds wanted to identify, provided more fodder for speculation after the select committee investigating the January 6 riot outright denied he was a federal agent or informant.
“Mr. Epps informed us that he was not employed by, working with, or acting at the direction of any law enforcement agency on January 5th or 6th or at any other time and that he has never been an informant for the FBI or any other law enforcement agency,” a select committee spokesperson said.
Senator Ted Cruz yesterday asked FBI National Security Branch Executive Assistant Director Jill Sanborn if Epps was a Fed. Ted Cruz had many questions for Sanborn. As reported earlier, the shocking lack of answers all but served as a confirmation that federal agents were actively participating in the events on 1/6.
Sanborn could not even answer Cruz when he asked point-blank if any Federal agents “committed any crimes of violence”.
During Tucker Carlson show last night, he mentioned how weak her answer was and according to him Sanborn should be forced to answer the question immediately:
“Cruz asked, quote: ‘did any FBI agents or FBI informants commit crimes of violence on January 6th?’ The obvious answer is ‘are you kidding? Come on now, of course the FBI isn’t secretly committing crimes of violence – that’s insane! we are a federal law enforcement agency, we’re not the Tonton Macoute. Next question please.’
That’s what Jill Sanborn should have said, but that’s not what she said. instead she replied, quote: ‘I can’t answer that.’
But of Course Jill Sanborn can answer that – and she should be forced to answer that immediately – no sources or methods would be revealed, just answer the question – did they participate in violence or not? why is that hard?
It tells you alot.”

But, if the Democrats had already interviewed this guy and cleared him of all suspicions, then why in the heck would they wait this long to announce it, and conveniently on the day when two top law enforcement officials were forced to address Epps for the first time under oath?
Something’s not adding up here. As Carlson points out, there are several questions that now need an answer:
“That’s absurdly false, and as if to underscore how absurdly false it is, within a short time [after the testimony] Democrats on the January 6th committee released a statement claiming that – actually – they had already interviewed Ray Epps, and anyone who still has questions about his behavior on January 5th or 6th is a dangerous conspiracy theorist.
When exactly, and under what circumstances did the committee talk to Ray Epps? Supposedly this interview was conducted in secret this last November. If that is true – we don’t know that it is, but let’s say that it is – Then why did the committee wait months to tell us today in a tweet? When the committee got its hands on Mark Meadows’ text messages, we seem to remember they leaked those to the media within hours.
And by the way was this Ray Epps interview conducted under oath? Did Democrats subpoena his electronic communications, as they did with Meadows and so many others? Will the information that Epps revealed to the committee be made availible to the January 6th defendants who are now awaiting trial? Can their lawyers see a transscript of this interview? – Can we see a transcript of this interview?
If not, why not?”
There’s still a lot of questions that Tucker Carlson is pointing out if Ray Epps was or is working for any government agency during the Jan 6th, and if yes what agency could that be? What was he paid? Who hired him? Why are the Feds and Jan 6 Committee covering this up? Was it legal for Epps to be there instigating the crowd? If he is connected to the government then isn’t this the real insurrection?
