Ray Epps is on video on January 6 trying to STOP the attacks on police officers and STOP the attacks on the Capitol. Who says so? The attackers themselves, including one of the arrested Trump supporters. But the MAGA cultists won’t leave this guy alone. nytimes.com/2022/07/13/us/…

Ray Epps became the unwitting face of an attempt by pro-Trump forces to promote the baseless idea that the F.B.I. was behind the attack on the Capitol.

A Trump Backer’s Downfall as the Target of a Jan. 6 Conspiracy Theory

Epps was questioned by investigators. He has no FBI ties and the FBI says he has no FBI ties. MAGA insurrectionists concede that while he spoke of entering the Capitol on January 5, on January 6 he didn’t do so, didn’t seek to do so, and tried to dissuade others from doing so.

Any member of the public or member of Congress who is ignoring these known facts about Ray Epps—confirmed by federal investigators *and* January 6 attackers alike—is an insurrectionist, a cultist, an apologist for domestic terrorism, and a sycophant of an orange career criminal.

When someone comes on my feed to talk about Epps, they’re blocked. Either they’ve read the truth in the scores of major media outlets that’ve published it and are ignoring it, or *falsely* claiming an obsession with high-quality January 6 research. Either way I’ve no time for it.
