It seems odd that on the same day, Chris Wray was ripped for not arresting Ray Epps and that Epps’ lawyer says he has been informed that charges will soon be lodged against his client.
Will he be thrown in jail or will he receive the Hunter Biden treatment? I wouldn’t touch that bet either way. But, if Epps was an FBI asset, what will happen if he realizes he will be going to prison?
He could squeal like a pig or be found hanging in his cell, where the cameras don’t work and where guards did not keep an eye on him.
An attorney for Ray Epps, a man seen on video wearing a Trump hat during the January 6 riot, has confirmed that his client will soon be facing federal charges for his actions on January 5th and 6th.
That information is listed in Epps’s lawsuit against Fox News. I don’t understand this lawsuit because Tucker Carlton played videos of all of Epps’s actions on both days.
The lawsuit said:
“Finally, in May 2023, the Department of Justice notified Epps that it would seek to charge him criminally for events on January 6, 2021—two-and-a-half years later. The relentless attacks by Fox and Mr. Carlson and the resulting political pressure likely resulted in the criminal charges.”
Epps has long been accused by many of being an undercover federal agent who instigated some of the events of that day. He has strongly denied being a federal agent.
Buried deep in the lawsuit, Epps lawyer says that the DOJ recently informed Epps that it plans to prosecute him. Epps’ lawyer blamed Carlson for the potential forthcoming charges.
“Finally, in May 2023, the Department of Justice notified Epps that it would seek to charge him criminally for events on January 6, 2021—two-and-a-half years later,” the lawsuit said. “The relentless attacks by Fox and Mr. Carlson and the resulting political pressure likely resulted in the criminal charges.”
The 62-year-old Marine veteran from Arizona is seen in multiple video clips from January 6 and the day before trying to whip up other Trump supporters to “go into the Capitol” the next day.
“I’ll say it. We need to go into the Capitol,” Epps says in one clip. At least four times on video, Epps repeats his call to action to “go into the Capitol.”
FBI Director Christopher Wray was grilled by lawmakers on Wednesday on a variety of issues, including Epps.
“I’m not going to engage here in a discussion about individual people who are or are not going to be prosecuted,” Wray responded.
Now, let’s see if he is actually charged and if he is, whether he gets a long prison sentence. Color me skeptical.
