Who is Ray Epps?

He was used in the opening scene of the Democrat’s impeachment tape of the so-called “insurrection” on January 6th. Epps can be seen wearing the khaki-colored jacket with the red “TRUMP” hat on the left side of the screen:

And again, in the Democrat lawmaker’s propaganda video, Epps can be seen marching with the “insurrectionists” toward the Capitol:

We reported on Epps earlier this week – In 2011, Ray Epps was the president of the Oath Keepers in Arizona.

Mr. Epps worked alongside the Oath Keeper Founder and President Stewart Rhodes.

On Memorial Day 2011, Oath Keepers held a memorial service for a fallen member. Epps and Rhodes stood side-by-side for much of the memorial service.

Epps can be seen standing behind Stewart Rhodes while Taps is being played.

Epps has been relatively quiet since then, but has recently been ID’d by Revolver News as one of the primary influencers in the January 6th “insurrection.” Neither Mr. Epps nor Oath Keeper President Stewart Rhodes have been charged with any activity related the the “insurrection” on January 6th, while several Oath Keeper members were arrested and are still being held in jail for their alleged participation in the January 6th “insurrection.”

The night before the “insurrection,” Epps appeared to be encouraging Trump supporters gathered near BLM Square in Washington DC to join him, as he announced that he planned to go “inside the Capitol.” Epps told an unidentified male (fed agent?) “In fact, tomorrow—I’m not even gonna say it because I might be arrested, but tomorrow—We need to go INTO the Capitol!” Trump supporters who could smell a rat shout, “Fed…Fed…Fed!”

On January 6th, Epps stood in front of a piece of heavy machinery, shouting at Trump supporters, “We are going to the Capitol, where our problems are,” he yelled. “It’s that direction!” he said, pointing. He encouraged the Trump supporters to tell everyone, “Please spread the word,” he implored.

As protesters first reach the Capitol, where Epps has been encouraging them to go for two days, they began to confront the scant number of police officers standing near low-security barriers. A young man wearing a black t-shirt and red MAGA cap can be seen engaging with police officers at the barriers. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Ray Epps appears and whispers in the ear of Ryan Samsel, a PA resident with an extensive violent criminal background. Epps seems to know to target Samsel, as he whispers in his ear. Almost immediately afterward, Samsel begins to push down the barriers, allowing protesters to run through the barriers and onto the Capitol grounds. Epps disappears.

Here’s Epps re-appearing with the protesters as they march toward the Capitol:

Once inside the grounds of Capitol where the staged “insurrection began,” Epps can be seen helping to hoist a giant Trump billboard over the head of the Capitol Police who are allegedly trying to control the crowd. Epps appears to be very good at instigating Trump supporters to act and then backs off once the action is in motion.  He can be seen in the right-hand corner of the large billboard but backs off once it is successfully pushed into the police barricade. Others (likely fed operatives) in the crowd, can be heard shouting, “Hold the line,” as they motion for the crowd to rush the police.

Once the protesters made their way onto the steps of the Capitol after Epps, the self-proclaimed leader of the staged “insurrection,” encouraged them to rush the Capitol Police, he suddenly became a defender of the police from the same protesters he incited earlier.

Yesterday, an independent journalist with Pure Politics confronted Ray Epps on his ranch in Arizona. Epps can be seen sitting in an oversized golf cart. As the reporter approaches Mr. Epps, he identifies himself as a “patriot” who met Epps on January 5th (where Epps appears in multiple videos rallying Trump supporters he doesn’t appear to know to go INTO the Capitol on January 6th). When asked if he was a federal agent or if he was still under investigation, Epps turned his golf cart around and disappeared down a driveway, as he was leaving, Epps told the reporter, “I understand that, but I can’t comment.”

Watch:

Revolver News reported extensively about Epps on Monday – After months of research, Revolver’s investigative reporting team can now reveal that Ray Epps appears to be among the primary orchestrators of the very first breach of the Capitol’s police barricades at 12:50 pm on January 6. Epps appears to have led the “breach team” that committed the very first illegal acts on that fateful day. What’s more, Epps and his “breach team” did all their dirty work with 10 minutes still remaining in President Trump’s National Mall speech, and with the vast majority of Trump supporters still 30 minutes away from the Capitol.

Secondly, Revolver also determined, and will prove below, that the FBI stealthily removed Ray Epps from its Capitol Violence Most Wanted List on July 1, just one day after Revolver exposed the inexplicable and puzzlesome FBI protection of known Epps associate and Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes. July 1 was also just one day after a separate New York Times report amplified a glaring, falsifiable lie about Epps’s role in the events of January 6.

Lastly, Ray Epps appears to have worked alongside several individuals — many of them suspiciously unindicted — to carry out a breach of the police barricades that induced a subsequent flood of unsuspecting MAGA protesters to unwittingly trespass on Capitol restricted grounds and place themselves in legal jeopardy.

By January 8, the FBI Capitol Violence Most Wanted List featured a big fat friendly face shot of Ray Epps. The FBI’s Washington Field Office, in a tweet the same day, called for the public’s help in identifying Epps. Epps, dressed in full camo with a bright red “Trump” hat, is the FBI’s “Suspect 16” in the bottom-left quadrant of both images reproduced below:

Epp’s image has curiously been removed from the FBI site. Here’s what their website looks like now.

If Nancy Pelosi and friends in the Democrat Party really wanted to get to the bottom of the so-called “insurrection,” it sure seems like a good place to start would be with Ray Epps.
