Kinzinger Mocks Cruz After House Committee Investigating January 6 Capitol Riot Issues Statement on “Unsupported Claims that Ray Epps Was an FBI Informant”




The House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol issued a statement Tuesday afternoon on Ray Epps, the man seen on several videos encouraging Trump supporters to storm the Capitol during the January 6 protest turned riot at the Capitol. The statement said Epps has spoken to the committee and denied being an FBI informant or working for law enforcement.
Turncoat Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL), one of only two Republicans on the committee (both he and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) were appointed by Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA)) mocked Cruz over the committee’s statement, saying, “One more @tedcruz conspiracy down. Ray Epps has cooperated and is nothing but a Jan 6 protest attendee, in his own words. Sorry crazies, it ain’t true.”

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.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned Jill Sanborn, the FBI’s executive assistant director for the national security branch, about Epps at a Senate hearing Tuesday:

I also asked about footage from January 5, 2021 of an individual named Ray Epps telling a crowd, “Tomorrow, we need to go into the Capitol” and the crowd responding “Fed, fed, fed, fed, fed…” pic.twitter.com/IyeEBxDg9Y

4/x I asked the FBI: “Was Ray Epps a fed?”
FBI: “I cannot answer that question.”

The statements by the committee and Kinzinger do not explain why Epps has not been charged for his as-seen-on-video role in instigating the storming of the Capitol. Kinzinger saying Epps has cooperated with the committee does however open the door to speculation of a deal for his cooperation.
