Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) raised an important question on Twitter once again this week: Who is Ray Epps? Anyone who has even peripherally followed the January 6 story since 2021 is wondering that same question, to this day.
Ray Epps was captured on video on January 5 and 6 encouraging the election justice protesters to go inside the US Capitol after President Trump’s speech. Epps even whispered some sort of command into a guy’s ear during the protest, right before the guy attacked the cops near the west steps leading to the Capitol.
There’s no doubt in most of our minds by now that Ray Epps is a fed, right? Epps was on the FBI’s Most Wanted list for six months after the January 6 protests. There was literally a cash reward for information leading to his arrest. He was on video inciting a riot at Congress.
But then about 6 months after the protests, he was suddenly taken off the FBI Most Wanted list and was never charged with anything. Out of everybody at the protest, Ray Epps is like the closest thing to an actual insurrectionist, because he was instigating violence and the breach of the Capitol.
Who is Ray Epps? Why won’t the Justice Department answer any questions about him? Why hasn’t he been arrested? Jimmy Dore explores these questions and as always, has some hilarious answers to them in this video…
