As Twitchy reported, January 6 Select Committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger sent out a “Sorry crazies” tweet along with a statement from a committee spokesperson saying they interviewed Ray Epps and he assured them he wasn’t working for any law enforcement agency. We guess he thought calling people “crazies” wasn’t convincing enough, so he followed up with this thread about “Ray” (they’re on a first-name basis, we guess) to put all questions to rest:


1) I know this will break some hearts. For a few months, people like Tucker Carlson, MTG, Gaetz, and now Cruz have been “just asking questions” about a man named Ray Epps.

2) He was on video the day before Jan 6 saying “we’re going INTO the capitol!” The some in the crowd chanted “fed fed fed.” Why? Who knows, maybe they knew he was videoed talking about breaking into the Capitol the day before it was to happen and wanted to create distance?

3) Regardless, he was put on the FBI wanted list, then removed. Because of all of that, the conspiracy that he was an FBI agent has been gospel on the blogs and shows. -side note- this is why we have to address conspiracies not ignore them.

4) He didn’t enter the Capitol on Jan 6, and was removed from the most wanted list because apparently he broke no laws. I’m pretty sure the FBI wouldn’t be dumb enough to put their own agent on a wanted list. Ray Epps has cooperated with the Jan 6 committee and we thank him

5) on the broader issue. Let’s say Ray was an agent (HE IS NOT), the premise is that one agent can gin up a crowd to insurrection. That isn’t saying much about the intelligence of your voters is it Ted? The rioters had formal education, owned businesses etc. they knew.

6) An FBI informant is someone that is paid by or turned by law enforcement as they build broader cases. Informants are usually criminals that turn to save their own butt. An informant is not an agent. But Ted wants you to think it is. RAY is NO informant either.

— Adam Kinzinger (@AdamKinzinger) January 11, 2022

7) The narrative on Jan 6 has been that it’s first antifa, or patriots who love their country, maybe crisis actors, def false flag operatives, or now FBI agents. Take your pick. Truth is they were rioters incited by lies. And RAY is no fed. Just another misled man.

While it may break hearts, it’s true. So many are misled by so few. Just look up.

This thread makes it worse and brings up so many more questions.

— Tim O’Brien (@Timobns) January 11, 2022

Then why don’t the @FBI leaders, when questioned, just say that? Makes no sense.

— SouthernGent79 (@WhiteZmrw5) January 11, 2022

Why doesn’t the FBI just address this themselves?

— John D, citizen 🍊 (@AtlantaJohnD) January 11, 2022

Then why doesn’t the FBI say so? It’s not unheard of for law enforcement to clear suspects during an open investigation.

Kinzinger doth protest too much.

— Q4 is 4 Lovers (@SamsoniteOn) January 11, 2022

Release all of these transcripts and the 14,000 hours of video footage.

It’ll heal the country with the truth.

Thank you.

Inciting a riot on video isn’t a crime?

— CB (@crb0712) January 11, 2022

He’s the one person out of more than 700 who wasn’t involved in any wrongdoing that day.

Strange that law enforcement and the DOJ requested people turn people in that were there protesting so they could be arrested. And yet, there is video evidence showing this man INCITING protesters to enter the Capitol without being arrested and you say he’s good.

— Lee Garner (@LeeGarn02207281) January 11, 2022

Seems like a good lawyer could make a plea for wrongful prosecution for those being held that did nothing close to what this man did. Two-tier justice system isn’t American.

— Lee Garner (@LeeGarn02207281) January 11, 2022

The reason Ray Epps is not called into question is the same reason the cop that murdered Ashli Babbitt is not charged with a felony. They know the right people.

— Just a Nobody (@justanobody57) January 11, 2022

Thank you for confirming there is a significant problem with Epps who, by the way, is seen on video inciting the crowd.

— Bippity (@Bippity37094971) January 11, 2022

hahaha. Wow. So you are now defending a guy who was inciting a riot and telling people to and assisting in storming the capital? Plenty others were arrested for less.

— Cornelius (@CorneliusCletus) January 11, 2022

If it’s not a crime to tell people to enter the Capitol building and to remove barriers, how is it that Trump is in trouble for Jan 6 when he didn’t say or do any of that ?

— DMac (@DarrenMcKee5) January 11, 2022

So you’re saying he was absolutely a fed

— Ken Snyder (@KenSnyder4) January 11, 2022

Now I’m 100% positive that Ray Epps is a Fed. Thanks for clearing this up, big guy!

— 75 Kings (@75kings) January 11, 2022

But inherent in this message is that it’s not a crime to incite a mob. I think that needs to be addressed.

Adam will be working for CNN by January of next year. Mark it.

In case you haven’t seen the video of Epps not breaking any laws:

How many January 6th protesters were actually working for the federal government? In October, I asked AG Garland while he was under oath and he refused to answer. He looked very nervous and worried when I showed him this video in that

— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) December 30, 2021

So a grandmother is fined $500 and given three years probation for parading in a Capitol building, but this guy gets off and is just excused by Kinzinger as “just another misled man”?


Spokesperson: Ray Epps told the January 6 Select Committee that no, he wasn’t working for the feds
