Ray Epps, the Oath Keepers activist who has been widely accused of being a federal asset for stirring people up in the lead-up to the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol discussion, has hired an attorney who worked for the FBI for nine years.
Darren Beattie of Revolver News broke the news that Epps hired a former FBI agent as a lawyer:
Epps can be seen here talking to right-wing livestreamer Tim “Baked Alaska” Gionet where he called for Trump supporters to enter the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6:
Strangely, despite his apparent inciting behavior, Epps has not been thrown in jail or even charged with a crime.
Recently, he had Jan. 6 commission members defending his character in public after Republicans suggested the possibility of Epps being a federal asset, making the entire situation seem even more fishy:
Big League Politics has reported on how Capitol police opened the doors and let Trump supporters into the Capitol on Jan. 6:
“Video finally released from the Jan. 6 demonstration called an “insurrection” or a “coup” by Democrats shows polite protestors taking a peaceful stroll through open doors at the U.S. Capitol seemingly with the support of police on the scene.
The video shows that Jan. 6 was a mostly-peaceful protest with only a small percentage of Trump supporters and outside agitators stirred up into committing any violence:
The U.S. Attorney’s office fought for months to suppress this footage as they waged their propaganda campaign with the media to paint Trump supporters as terrorist threats. However, even the deep state is now admitting that there is no evidence showing that the Jan. 6 protest was any sort of a planned insurrection…
The leftist narrative about Jan. 6 is breaking down.”
Epps’ choice of attorney is not going to quell the chatter about the possibility of him being a federal asset. There are still many questions about Jan. 6 that remain unanswered.
