Why Ray Epps Matters
"Multiple videos show Ray Epps repeatedly urging crowds of people in Washington, D.C. on January 5 and January 6, 2021, to go to the United States Capitol and breach the building," Gosar explained. "Epps is the one person seen on video directing people towards the Capitol seconds before violence broke out, yet he has never been arrested or charged with any crime while more than 800 others have and countless more remained jailed."
Later in July 2021, however, the
FBI quietly removed Epps from its most-wanted list. He was not arrested and
never spent a night in jail. The failure of the FBI to arrest the most
conspicuous ringleader of the Capitol breach has naturally heightened suspicions
that Epps-and likely others-were either federal agents or assets.
