After a bombastic exchange by US Senator, Ted Cruz (R-TX), at a Tuesday hearing, the Democrat-dominated January 6th committee responded about a mysterious person named Ray Epps on their Twitter account, after a long and strange string of events that exposed Epps as someone connected to driving people into the Capitol Jan. 6, 2021- someone who likely incited violence.
Cruz set DC off:
Cruz asked a series of questions about Epps and whether or not he was an FBI employee or known to the FBI- watch this.
“Did federal agents or those in service of federal agents actively encourage violent and criminal conduct on January 6th”

About that Ray Epps thing, the official Twitter account for the Feds responded after public scrutiny of their laziness or deceitfulness about this person:
“The Select Committee is aware of unsupported claims that Ray Epps was an FBI informant based on the fact that he was on the FBI Wanted list and then was removed from that list without being charged.
The Committee has interviewed Epps. Epps informed us that he was not employed by, working with, or acting at the direction of any law enforcement agency on Jan 5th or 6th or at any other time, & that he has never been an informant for the FBI or any other law enforcement agency.”

Ray Epps’ name made the mainstream after footage of him directing people, on both Jan. 5th and 6th, 2021 to enter the capitol building and to cause an uprising.

“Ray Epps is on video multiple times encouraging Trump supporters to breach the capitol. He’s not under arrest and hasn’t been charged with anything because he’s an FBI informant who was tasked by the FBI to get people to break the law so the FBI could attack Republicans,” Jessie Kelly wrote in response to see the video of Epps at the US Capitol.
A journalist for Revolver News exposed the activities of Ray Epps for weeks and often discussed his work on the War Room Pandemic with Steve Bannon, and was recognized by President Donald J. Trump for his work:
Epic, huge honor
We at Revolver News are not going to stop until the American people have the full truth about Jan 6 https://t.co/lMjkxXpZGc

Trump released a statement through his’ Office of 45′ about Epps on Monday citing Revolver’s articles, right before Cruz was heard discussing, possibly leading to pressure on the committee to respond.
“Congratsulations to Darren Beattie and Revolver News who have exposed much of the Fake News’ false narrative about Janurary 6th”
Clearly showing their political favoritism, Adam Kinsley, a never Trumper who sits on the Jan. 6th Committee chimed in that what Epps was seen doing was ok.
It's not that simple. Incitement to riot is a federal crime. Trump was impeached for "incitement."

The Democrats are trying to set the narrative that all Trump supporters are domestic terrorists, and their narrative is starting to fall apart. The fact that the committee, who has been highly aggressive with top Trump administration officials, and after they have imprisoned Trump supporters for a full year- for their interaction- without a trial, and are not at all interested in a person seen on video, by numerous people, inciting an uprising at the US Capitol- is highly suspicious.
It is time for the Democrats and two Never Trumpers in DC to had that Committee over to honest people. The government needs to be investigated, not the American people.
