GOP Demands Answers: Jan 6 Committee, FBI Won’t Release Info on Suspected Fed Informant Ray Epps

Published

on

The mystery of Ray Epps continues to grow. Multiple videos of Epps have surfaced showing him repeatedly demanding pro-Trump rioters should enter the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Epps’ involvement has led many to speculate that he was an FBI plant who incited the January 6th insurrection. One video of Epps shows Trump supporters shouting “no” to his suggestion of entering the Capitol and even begin to shout that he is a “fed.”

Texas Representative Ronny Jackson tweeted Thursday, “Who’s Ray Epps? Why did he mysteriously disappear from the FBI wanted list? Why can’t we see what he said to the Cheney/Pelosi Witch Hunt committee? Was the FBI involved in any way in planning 1/6? Why won’t they answer ANY of these questions? Something is NOT right here!”

A lot of questions need to be answered in deed. Jackson’s tweet comes after Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned Jill Sanborn, the executive assistant director of the FBI’s national security branch, during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday.

Cruz got zero answers from Sanborn’s testimony, only causing further curiosity about Epps; just as Jackson suggests. The New York Post transcribed some of the testimony, as follows:

“A lot of Americans are concerned that the federal government deliberately encouraged illegal and violent conduct on Jan . 6 ,” Cruz (R-Texas) told Jill Sanborn, the executive assistant director of the FBI’s national security branch during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

“My question to you – – and this is not an ordinary law enforcement question, this is a question of public accountability — did federal agents or those in service of federal agent s actively encourage violent and criminal conduct on Jan. 6 ?” he asked.

 Sanborn responded by saying she couldn’t disclose “sources and methods.”

“Ms. Sanborn, was Ray Epps a fed?” asked Cruz after stating that Epps was captured on video the night of Jan. 5, 2021 rousing people to “get into the Capitol.”

“Sir, I cannot answer that question,” replied Sanborn, who added that she was “aware of the individual,” but didn’t have “specific background” on him.

Cruz went on and stated that on Jan. 6, Epps was seen talking to rioters moments before they ripped down police barricades outside the Capitol.

 Sanborn responded that she couldn’t answer whether Epps urged them to knock down the barricades.

Cruz then noted that Epps initially appeared on a poster issued by the FBI seeking information about people connected to criminal activity on Jan. 6, but was absent from another FBI “seeking information” poster distributed July 1.

Cruz then notes,  “magically, Mr. Epps disappeared from the public posting” and “according to public records, Mr. Epps has not been charged with anything. No one’s explained why a person videoed urging people to go to the Capitol, a person whose conduct was so suspect the crowd believed he was a fed, would magically disappear from the list of people the FBI was looking at.”

Even more curious, the January 6th Committee investigating the riot has simply said claims that Epps was an informant were “unsupported.” In a statement on Twitter, the panel said “Epps informed us that he was not employed by, working with, or acting at the direction of any law enforcement agency on January 5th of 6th or at any time, & that he has never been an informant for the FBI or any other law enforcement agency.”

Yet the Committee will not release interview transcripts. Yet the Committee expects the American people to just accept their vague and useless tweet? No way.

John Blischak is the attorney for Epps, and told the Epoch Times that his client is not working with, or for the FBI. But…Blischak himself is a former FBI agent. Something smells fishy.

    Why hasn’t he been arrested as the other protesters were?

    This will put the DS in a pickle eventually! If they come out and tell us that Ray Epps was working for them, it blows their whole insurrection narrative. If they don’t come clean and provide the truth, they will be hounded for eternity for the answer and sooner or later the truth will come out. If Epps is charged because the DS gives in to the pressure, he will sing like a canary telling us that they made him do it for his job (if he doesn’t get Epsteined by the DS beforehand). This will not end well for the DS traitors!

    Demon-rats are an evil cult. They stage, infiltrate, and run phony investigations based on delusional conspiracies theories.

    The same corrupt FBI agents that plotted the fake kidnapping of a Democrat “ Victim” Governor are the same corrupt FBI agents who plotted the fake insurrection at the “House of Political Crime Families” in DC on Jan 6! FACT!

    With all the DIRECT EVIDENCE of Ray Epps telling people to “go into the Capitol” and his talking to the person who pushed the barrier down right after Ray Epps talked to him, it is obvious to all but the ignorant Ray Epps was an instigator of the January 6 situation. Based on the FBI ALWAYS using a “STING OPERATION” as their main MODUS OPERANDI for setting up their past victims, I would say it is almost 100% certain Ray Epps, like in the Michigan Governor “fake” kidnapping, was an asset of the FBI or another Government Agency and “WE THE PEOPLE” need to DEMAND the truth from these crooks.

    More than enough reason to charge Epps with conspiracy. 100%!

    John Blischak is the attorney for Epps, and told the Epoch Times that his client is not working with, or for the FBI. That’s present tense. Was his client working, at any time in the past, with or for the CFBI (Criminal FBI)? FJB

    I thought that the Government was supposed to serve the American people. The FBI gets our tax money and our support but they need to be honest and open to the American people.
    Possibly manipulating a group of people on January 6 would be completely unacceptable. The FBI needs to answer these questions about Epps, etc so that we can continue trusting them. Epps needs to be located and appear under oath to testify about his role in January 6.

    It’s very clear that there were at least 5 members of the FBI who cleared the path up to the Capital steps prior to the crowd arriving. It is my contention that given all the law breaking by the FBI those in management positions show all be terminated if they had anything to do with Jan/6 and the Russian collusion hoax.

    Notice carefully the guy with the backwards MAGA cap who Epps was whispering in his ear. This guy then shoved the barricade aside and rushed forward. As Michael Yon showed in his interview with Joshua Phillip on his Epoch Times Crossroads channel a few weeks after Jan 6, the backwards MAGA cap was an identifier for Antifa provocateurs. Dozens of men (no women, of course) with the backwards cap were shoving aside barricades, pushing other people into tunnels (Virginia White, for instance) breaking windows, and scaling the steps sides with climbing gear (seriously, what Trump supporter would bring climbing gear to a protest? But Antifa shock troops would). They were there because the Feds brought them in their (caravan) of vans with blacked-out windows, also on video.

    Michael Yon, if you’ve never heard of him, is America’s most experienced war and conflict journalist – he has covered well over 500 conflicts, and is intimately familiar with Antifa tactics from having covered them in Portland, Kenosha, and many other places.

    It is quite obvious that Ray Epps knew exactly who he was speaking to, and undoubtedly said something like “time to ramp this up” to that guy just before he did exactly that. You can bet that guy in the backwards MAGA cap is NOT in the DC gulag, nor charged.

    Ray Epps was clearly egging on folks to take certain actions. There were also others that day whose conduct would suggest they were “fueling the fire” to get the assembled Trump supporters caught up in an eventual narrative which Pelosi and company were about to write. The January 6th Committee is a Soviet style sham. Unfortunately our FBI and DOJ continue to disgrace themselves by allowing themselves to be partisan weapons. The credibility of those in power has a eroded to a point where things are only going to get worse, much worse.

    Its not just The GOP party! its about all Americans who are so displeased, disappointed with the committee and way this investigation is going as it sneaks and hides important information

    If the “lawmakers” behind the Jaunary 6 Commission don’t want to charge Ray Epps they themselves should be charged for aiding and abetting a criminal. There is substantial evidence to support the claim.

    Maybe a better question is who is AG Merrick Garland? Evidence is placed in front of him and ignores the opportunity to set the record straight. He is corruption personified.

    There is disgusting and disgusting… but nothing is more disgusting than a hypocrite nation who’s “incorruptibles” are corrupt to the bone meanwhile telling the world they are a morale paradigm…a hypocrite nation who’s praising god-churches are infested by pedophiles… a nation denying abortion even to the victims of its perverts, priests, politicians, law-makers and illegals… there is nothing more disgusting that a bottomless shite hole called USA!

Stormy Daniels lawyer in Trump trial, Michael Avenatti, sentenced to prison for stealing millions from clients

Published

michael avenatti presidency statement

Lawyer Michael Avenatti, who represented porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against former President Donald Trump was sentenced to 14 years in prison. Avenatti was sentenced for stealing millions of dollars from his clients. He was also fined a whopping $10 million.

U.S. District Judge James v. Selna said “Avenatti’s sentence in Southern California will be served after he finishes a five-year term for separate convictions in New York” reported the Associated Press.

“This was the last of three major federal criminal cases to wrap up against the 51-year-old Californian. Avenatti is currently serving prison time for stealing book proceeds from Daniels — who sued to break a confidentiality agreement with Trump to stay mum about an affair she said they had — and for trying to extort Nike if the shoemaker didn’t pay him up to $25 million” adds the AP.

Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., used the news of Avenatti’s conviction to bring up an old Tweet of his. On October 11 2018, Avenatti predicted Trump Jr. would be going to prison: “Donald Trump Jr. will be indicted before his birthday on 12-31-18. If you doubt my prediction, please check my record over the last 7 months. #winning.”

Trump Jr. is getting the last laugh. Jr. tweeted Avenatti’s 2018 prediction with the Associated Press headline of the conviction: “BREAKING: Incarcerated lawyer Michael Avenatti sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for cheating clients out of millions of dollars – AP.”

Earlier this year Avenatti plead guilty to “four counts of wire fraud and a tax-related charge despite not reaching a plea deal with federal prosecutors, saying he wanted to be accountable and spare his family further embarrassment” added the AP.

“He was accused of negotiating and collecting settlement payments on behalf of his clients and funneling the money to accounts he controlled, and spending it on his own lavish lifestyle, including a private jet.”

The Associated Press  also went into further detail on Avenatti’s court hearing:

“Despite the significant advantages that this defendant had — a first-rate education, a thriving legal career — he chose to commit the deplorable acts in this case time and time again,” prosecutor Brett Sagel told the court in Santa Ana. “The defendant is just another criminal who thinks the law is something that applies to other people.”

His voice breaking, Avenatti apologized to the clients he bilked, including two who told the court about how losing the money and their trust in someone they thought had their back upended their lives.

“I am deeply remorseful and contrite,” Avenatti said. “There is no doubt that all of them deserve much better, and I hope that someday they will accept my apologies and find it in their heart to forgive me.”

Authorities in California said Avenatti carried out what amounted to a “sophisticated Ponzi scheme” by collecting settlement payments on behalf of vulnerable clients and using the money to fund his exorbitant lifestyle.
