Ray Epps Admits He ‘Orchestrated’ Jan 6 Events

Ray Epps, a self-described organizer of the January 6 attack on the United States Capitol, testified before the Select Committee investigating the attack.

Epps denied being a government informant but stated that he willingly participated in and helped organize the attack.

In a text message cited by the committee, Epps claimed to have been “in the front with a few others” and to have “orchestrated” the attack.

When asked to explain his use of the term “orchestrate,” Epps stated that he “helped get people there.”

Despite his admitted involvement in the attack, Epps has not been arrested or charged, a fact that has drawn attention from Federalist CEO Sean Davis, who tweeted about Epps’ testimony and questioned why Epps has not faced consequences while hundreds of others have been charged and jailed.

“On the afternoon of January 6, Ray Epps texted his nephew about the events at the Capitol: ‘I was in the front with a few others. I also orchestrated it.’ And we wonder [why] he was never charged and why he’s the only person whom [Jan. 6 panel members Reps. Adam] Kinzinger and [Liz] Cheney will defend,” Davis wrote.
