Democrats desperately need a distraction.
Playing up the Capitol Hill riot is their excuse to censor and “investigate” anyone opposing them.
But the identification of one mystery man threatens to put an end to their charade.
The January 6th Select Committee has been slinging subpoenas at everyone from former Trump associates to journalists.
But there is one person they have zero interest in bringing out into the open.
Democrats, along with RINOS Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, have a suspicious lack of curiosity about one of the most questionable characters caught on video in the moments leading up to the riot: Ray Epps.
He was caught on video shouting at people to go “into the Capitol” in the moments leading up to the riot.
Instead of following his instructions, people in the crowd began chanting, “Fed, fed, fed!”
Epps then whispered in the ear of the rioter who shoved past security and led the charge into the House.
If it were an honest investigation, you’d expect him to be the one man in the committee’s cross hairs.
But that doesn’t even scratch the surface of what makes this situation stink worse than a rotten egg on the Fourth of July.
As soon as Epps was identified he was suddenly removed from the FBI’s Most Wanted list.
Reality seems to be catching up with the January 6th Select Committee—and no matter how much they want to pretend they’re above the law, sinking poll numbers for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have to be making all their friends nervous.
Now public pressure has forced them to announce that the committee will interview Epps.
That desperate move proved that Adam Kinzinger lied earlier this month when he sent out a tweet suggesting the committee had already interviewed Epps.
On January 11 he tweeted about Epps in an attempt to justify the committee’s suspicious behavior.
“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,” He wrote. “Ray Epps has cooperated with the Jan 6 committee and we thank him.”
While exactly what the FBI is up to is up for debate, Kinzinger should know there are a whole lot of Americans who aren’t “dumb enough” to take him and his colleagues at their word.
Donald Trump recently brought up Epps at a “Save America Rally” in Arizona.
Democrats and RINOs alike should realize they can only get away with so much before they risk losing supporters to their opponents.
But while there are legitimate questions about whether Epps has ever worked as an agent for the Federal government, it’s unlikely Biden and Friends will ever admit what’s really going on.
