(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – The uncharged man who was identified as one of the key players who instigated the January 6th riot at the Capitol building back in 2020, Ray Epps, stated in a text message sent to his nephew that he was responsible for orchestrating the incident, as per newly released witness transcripts from the select committee investigating the breach.
“At that point, I didn’t know that they were breaking into the Capitol,” Epps went on to tell Congressional investigators, also stating, “I didn’t know anybody was in the Capitol. … I was on my way back to the hotel room.”
The night before, however, Epps was seen going around to a few groups of Trump supporters, telling them they would need to storm the Capitol building.
According to Zerohedge, Epps explained his actions on that fateful day in two separate interviews conducted with the FBI back in 2021. He confessed his guilt for trespassing on restricted grounds and then admitted to urging other protesters to enter the Capitol building on Jan. 6. He then told members of Congress that he was suddenly in the role of peacekeeper between a Trump supporter known as “Baked Alaska” and the cops, who referred to Epps as a federal agent.
On January 6, 2021 Ray Epps texted his nephew to say, “I WAS IN THE FRONT WITH A FEW OTHERS. I ALSO ORCHESTRATED IT.” See the relevant section and also link to full transcript below https://t.co/JV1cITkprd pic.twitter.com/EJb6UKoDfU

Ray Epps was near the front line from the very beginning of the riot when he was whispering in Ryan Samsel's ear to when he helped push a large metal sign into the police line (for which others have been charged with felonies)
No "I didn't know what was going on" for him https://t.co/SJUpIXzH8h

“I was trying to find some common ground,” Epps commented. “This guy was trying to turn people against me…he was calling me ‘boomer,’ and it’s his generation’s fault that we’re in the position we’re in.”
“Despite the admissions, the FBI never arrested Epps and he was not charged by the U.S. Department of Justice with any Jan. 6 crimes. The non-action has fueled a crop of theories that he might have been working for the FBI or another agency,” Zerohedge said. “Epps, 61, has repeatedly denied those suggestions through his attorney.”
Well, now, it certainly seems strange that a man who claims to have orchestrated the entire event, who stirred people up to march into the Capitol building, isn’t being charged with a crime, while other individuals allegedly involved in the incident were tossed in prison for doing far, far less.
Speculation surrounding the rumor that Epps was working for the feds kicked up a notch after Revolver News put out an article with a headline that read, “Meet Ray Epps: The Fed-Protected Provocateur Who Appears To Have Led The Very First 1/6 Attack On The U.S. Capitol.”
“Revolver also determined, and will prove below, that the the FBI stealthily removed Ray Epps from its Capitol Violence Most Wanted List on July 1, just one day after Revolver exposed the inexplicable and puzzlesome FBI protection of known Epps associate and Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes. July 1 was also just one day after [a] separate New York Times report amplified a glaring, falsifiable lie about Epps’s role in the events of January 6,” it continued.
“Lastly, Ray Epps appears to have worked alongside several individuals — many of them suspiciously unindicted — to carry out a breach of the police barricades that induced a subsequent flood of unsuspecting MAGA protesters to unwittingly trespass on Capitol restricted grounds and place themselves in legal jeopardy.”
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a Republican from the state of Illinois, made the claim that Epps “cooperated with the Jan. 6 committee.” and was removed from the most wanted list put out by the bureau “because he apparently broke no laws.”
“We’re sure Epps, who claims he wasn’t working for the feds, ‘cooperated’ indeed. And who’s this guy?” Zerohedge pointed out.
