Ray Epps Called FBI Tip Line Two Days after Capitol Riot: Report

Estimated Reading Time: < 1 minute

Ray Epps, a man some suspect was a federal informant goading the crowd ahead of the Capitol riot despite his denials, reportedly called the FBI tip line two days after the violence upon seeing himself on a list of Jan. 6 suspects.

Investigators were told by Epps that an exchange captured on video showing him whispering into the ear of another man, identified as Ryan Samsel, was Epps attempting to calm Samsel, telling him police outside the Capitol were just doing their jobs before Samsel charged the barricades, people familiar with the call told the New York Times.

Epps, an Arizona man and former Oath Keeper, had been on the FBI’s Capitol Violence Most Wanted list before he was removed without explanation after nearly six months. The New York Times reported in January there was no evidence Epps entered the Capitol on Jan. 6. “We’re holding ground — we’re not trying to get people hurt,” Epps was filmed telling the rioter while standing on restricted Capitol grounds. The report also said Epps committed an offense by entering a restricted part of Capitol grounds but added that the crime “has largely gone unpunished.”

Epps was also seen on video on the night of Jan. 5 urging people to “go into the Capitol.” All this, in addition to his lack of arrest for his involvement in the riot, has fueled speculation among some Republicans that he was an FBI informant tasked with egging on the pro-Trump crowd at the Capitol.

Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.

Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS  will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.

Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about. 

It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.

The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
