For a time, even the FBI had Epps on its 'wanted' list in relation to the incident before suddenly and inexplicably removing him -- even as the bureau arrested hundreds of other people whose only 'crime' was being around the Capitol that day.
What is not in dispute is that Epps was captured on video telling people the evening before the incident that he was going to 'storm' the Capitol and encouraged other people to go inside with him, leading many people to identify him as a federal plant immediately. But of course, the garbage legacy media dutifully stepped up to refute those allegations led by one of the usual suspects, the Washington Post, which declared such accusations nothing but a 'right-wing conspiracy theory' that blew up thanks to "reality."
“Mr. Epps has not been charged with anything,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) asked FBI executive assistant director for national security Jill Sanborn during a January 2022 hearing. “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 the people the FBI was looking at.”
"That last point is a reference to Epps appearing on a wanted list before being removed," the Post confirmed.
Sanborn refused to answer any questions about Epps, including a simple one: Was he a "fed?" If he isn't, then in the name of full disclosure, Sanborn should have said unequivocally and under oath, "No." But she didn't.
Now we know why: She would have perjured herself and opened herself up to civil and criminal liability.
Ray Epps, the man who was filmed at the Capitol in the lead up to January 6 saying, "We need to go into the Capitol," texted his nephew on January 6 that he "orchestrated it" as protestors breached the Capitol building that afternoon.
According to the January 21, 2022 transcript of Epps' interview with the January 6 Committee, he was texting his nephew Dalin and said, "I was in the front with a few others. I also orchestrated it."
If that's not an admission of being a deep-state plant, then there isn't any such thing.
Epps was filmed on January 5 saying, "We need to go in to the Capitol," and later added, "I'm going to put it out there. I'm probably going to go to jail for it, okay? Tomorrow, we need to go into the Capitol. Into the Capitol." Someone in the crowd then exclaimed, "what?" in response to Epps, which was followed by a collective shout of "No!" and "Fed! Fed! Fed!" in Epps' direction.
He also testified that he said on the day of the incident, "Okay folks, as soon as the president is done speaking, we go to the Capitol." Conservative commentator and documentary filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza tweeted out that portion of this Jan. 6 Committee testimony.

Epps was asked, "What did you mean by 'orchestrate'? What did you orchestrate?"
He responded, "I just meant that I got -- you have to understand our relationship, uncle-nephew. We hunt together. We have fun with each other. We do that kind of stuff."
"What I meant by 'orchestrate,' I helped get people there," Epps added.
The government ginned up Jan. 6 as a false flag to saddle Donald Trump with it as a means of ruining his legacy. Experts who were there know it, too.
