It has long been the suspicion of many that the FBI and other agencies had the crowd filled with federal agents who worked to entrap members of the crowd and lead them toward the breach of the Capitol building that day. And a man named Ray Epps has been a particular focus of that claim. Many have said he was a federal plant who was sent to stir the crowd to commit crimes. He is seen on a large number of videos, yelling to the crowd to enter the Capitol building and generally advocating for what the left claims are acts of “sedition” and “insurrection.” Epps was just this week indicted on a misdemeanor charge for his part in the Jan. 6 incursion. But Massie slammed Garland for the recent sham indictment.
MASSIE: “How many agents or assets of the government were present on January 5th and January 6th.. Can you answer that now?”GARLAND: “I don’t know the answer to that question.” MASSIE: “I think you may have just perjured yourself that you don’t know if there were any” pic.twitter.com/a04nkeBGm9 — Benny Johnson (@bennyjohnson) September 20, 2023
“By the way, that was in reference to Ray Epps, and yesterday you indicted him,” Massie explained. “Isn’t that a wonderful coincidence? On a misdemeanor! Meanwhile, you’re sending grandmas to prison, you’re putting people away for 20 years for merely filming. Some people weren’t even there, yet you’ve got the guy [Ray Epps] on video who’s saying ‘go into the Capitol’ and he’s directing people to the Capitol before the speech ends, and he’s at the site of the first breach. You’ve got all the goods on him, ten videos, and it’s an indictment for a misdemeanor?” “The American public isn’t buying it,” Massie concluded with disgust.
Not suspicious at all!Nearly 3 years after J6, Ray Epps is finally charged … with “disorderly conduct.” That’s right. The man who yelled for people to storm the Capitol, who was video taped mulitple times actually trying to incite a riot, somehow avoids seditious conspiracy… pic.twitter.com/gxGHcbiuOq — Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) September 19, 2023
The House Judiciary Committee is currently exploring the “weaponization” of the Justice Department, one of a number of House GOP investigations scrutinizing the corruption of the Biden administration. Massie is 100 percent correct. While Biden’s corrupt DOJ is sending elderly women to prison for singing hymns outside an abortion clinic and putting people in prison for decades for a little non-violent but illegal sightseeing in the Capitol, the man seen on video apparently fomenting the Jan. 6 incursion is just getting a misdemeanor charge? It is a disgusting double standard, one that readily leads many to assume that Epps is a federal agent, and that his indictment on meaningless charges is meant to cover up his complicity.
