Rep. Thomas Massie recently struck a chord…
Nothing he said or asked was revolutionary, he simply asked the obvious questions—questions we all want answers to.
Who is Ray Epps? Why was Epps taken off the F.B.I. most wanted list? How could he have possibly been taken off the list if he is the only person on video calling for protestors to storm the Capitol?
Is Epps an F.B.I. informant?
Why are so many left-wing outlets, like The New York Times, an outlet which acts as the mouthpiece of the state, covering for the only guy who was caught on tape actively telling people to storm the Capitol?
It boggles my mind that he has not been charged with anything, yet others who arguably did far less are languishing in prison.
What makes all of this even more suspect is the lackadaisical attitude Democrats seem to have towards Ray Epps, in fact, they seem to be outright covering for him.
Everyone has taken notice and everyone sorely wants to know:
Election denier Jamie Raskin says what? Seems like @RepThomasMassie hit a nerve (or a button that triggered this preprepared faux outrage diatribe). Poor Ray Epps! Just tryna survive! Poor Mary Trump! https://t.co/kN44wHllBZ

Why don’t Democrats want Americans to know about Ray Epps, the only man caught on video telling people to go into the Capitol the day before January 6th? pic.twitter.com/UbpMzGonZP

The top line of a New York Times piece titled “How Ray Epps Became the Victim of A January 6th Conspiracy Theory” states:
Ray Epps became the unwitting face of an attempt by pro-Trump forces to promote the baseless idea that the F.B.I. was behind the attack on the Capitol.
Why is he a free man while others are rotting pretrial in prisons all over America?
He organized people to go IN THE CAPITOL on Jan 6th.

Tell me again why Ray Epps hasn’t been arrested and jailed like the rest of the January 6 prisoners yet? pic.twitter.com/9EiGY0G8oI

If J 6 comm. was a legitimate undertaking, all surveillance footage sealed by the House Speaker would be dissected.
Communications by the House Speaker, Ray Epps, the sergeant at arms, Mitch McConnell, and Capitol Police would be presented, not concealed. pic.twitter.com/9OSD2boN6B

Axios, another left-leaning outlet, also seemed to drum up sympathy for Epps:
The baseless theory, pushed by right-wing media outlets and Republican politicians, prompted death threats and resulted in Epps leaving his home and selling his business, he told the Times.
