LOL! Jan 6 Witch Hunt Committee Member Jamie Raskin Defends “Poor” Ray Epps…”Leave that guy alone!…He’s just trying to survive, and he’s on your side!” [VIDEO]
100 Percent Fed Up reports – On October 21, 2021, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) showed an interesting video today while questioning Attorney General Merrick Garland. The video included a montage of clips showing an alleged “Trump supporter” inciting people on January 5 and again on January 6th to breach the Capitol.
Massie addressed the curious video of Ray Epps with AG Garland, “As far as we can determine, the individual who was saying he’ll ‘probably go to jail’ and he’ll ‘probably be arrested,’ but he wants everyone—-they need everyone to go into the Capitol the next day, is then the next day seen directing people into the Capitol. But as far as we can tell, this individual has not been charged with anything. You said this was one of the most sweeping investigations in history.” Massie asked Garland, “So, have you seen this video or those frames from the video?”
Garland refused to comment on the video, claiming immunity because the incident is currently under investigation.
“Ok, I was hoping today to give you the opportunity to put to rest the concerns that people have that there were federal agents or assets of the federal government present on January 5th or January 6th,” Massie said, asking, “Can you tell us without talking about particular incidents or particular videos how many agents or assets of the federal government were present on January 6th, whether they agitated to go into the Capitol and if any of them did?”
“So, I’m not gonna violate this norm of the rule of law. I’m not gonna comment on an investigation that’s ongoing,” the uncomfortable AG replied.

Only five days after the so-called “insurrection,” Arizona Central reported about the man seen in the video, who is allegedly from Arizona. The article shares several videos of the MAGA hat man who called for Trump supporters to join him on January 6th to “go inside the Capitol.” All but one of the accounts that posted the videos have been removed from YouTube, Instagram, and dLive TV.
Here’s a closer look at the Jan 5 video showing the MAGA hat-wearing man on January 5th encouraging Trump supporters to go inside the Capitol building on Jan 6. Epps is cautious with his words. He appears to be encouraging Trump supporters standing around him to ignore the consequences of their actions, saying he may “get arrested,” but he doesn’t care. During their fake conversation, Epps shouts, “We need to go into the Capitol” on January 6th. The guy with the camera (potentially another federal agent?) shouts, “Let’s go!” as he turns to the unidentified person conveniently filming their conversation and smiles.

On Jan 11, 2022, during a US Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) exposed how the FBI is potentially covering for Ray Epps when he asked FBI National Security Branch Executive Assistant Director Jill Sanborn whether or not FBI agents or confidential informants played a role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incident that Democrats and their allies in the media have labeled an “insurrection” and “domestic terror attack.”
“Did any FBI agents or confidential informants actively participate in the events of January 6th? Yes or no?” Sen. Cruz asked.
FBI’s Jill Sanborn: “I can’t answer that.”
Senator Cruz began to ask more direct questions about Ray Epps, a man who was seen on Jan 5 encouraging Trump supporters to go inside the Capitol on Jan. 6. Mr. Epps was also seen in several cases encouraging Trump supporters to breach the Capitol throughout the day.
Cruz asked Jill Sanborn a direct question about Ray Epps: “Ms. Sanborn, was Ray Epps a fed?”
Ms. Sanborn replied: “Sir, I cannot answer that question.”
“Ms. Sanborn, a lot of Americans are concerned that the Federal Government deliberately encouraged illegal and violent conduct on January 6th. My question to you—and this is not an ordinary law enforcement question—this is a question about public accountability—Did federal agents, or those in service of federal agents, actively encourage violent and criminal conduct on January 6th?” Cruz said.
“Not to my knowledge,” a defiant Sandborn responded.
Watch the incredible exchange here:

Yesterday, in what may go down in history as one of the worst acting jobs by a Democrat lawmaker, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-NY), who is part of a team of dishonest, leftist, Trump-hating hacks, attempted to encourage Rep. Massie to leave “poor” Ray Epps alone.
“Mr. Epps was in front of the January 6 Committee, and we were told that a transcript of his interview would be released. And I’m wondering, was he sworn in…?” Rep. Massie asked.
“You guys are trying to make this poor schmuck who showed up to this protest into something a lot bigger than he is. Okay? He’s just trying to survive, and he’s on your side. You don’t have many voters left, and you might want to try to hang on to them without demonizing and vilifying your own people. That’s the Donald Trump way—sell everyone down the road—unless you can get a pardon,” Raskin said in his hilarious defense of Ray Epps.
The bad actor ended his passionate defense of Ray Epps with, “Now you guys are doing it to that poor Ray Epps. Leave that guy alone! Whoever he is!” The Witch Hunt Jan 6 Committee has allegedly spoken to Ray Epps twice, but of course, Raskin, who just defended the honor of Mr. Epps, isn’t sure who he is.
Just when I thought he couldn’t top the last one, Raskin goes right at Massie and his dumb ass Ray Epps conspiracy. pic.twitter.com/RC2vD1arBb

With mountains of evidence showing Ray Epps leading the effort to encourage Trump supporters to go into the Capitol on January 6th, Rep. Raskin is telling Republicans to leave him alone because “he’s one of you.” Meanwhile, the Jan 6 Witch Hunt Committee has now set their sites on Ginni Thomas, wife of US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, because she dared to openly support President Trump.
Ginni Thomas has already publicly stated that she attended the January 6 rally at the Ellipse in Washington DC but never walked to the Capitol and was nowhere near the Capitol during the incident. Like hundreds of thousands of people who were unprepared for the unusually frigid temperatures on January 6, Ginni Thomas left the rally immediately after Trump’s speech because she was too cold to stay.
Instead of focusing on the crooked mail-in-voting process and how it provided the perfect opportunity for Democrats to steal the election, the media instead chooses to focus on the 200 people who entered the Capitol on Jan. 6. By using grossly exaggerated claims, they’ve managed to tie innocent conservative leaders and activists who were nowhere near the Capitol to the poor decisions made by a tiny percentage of protesters as a way to clear the deck of conservative influencers like Ginni Thomas before the 2022 election.
On January 7, 2021, Mark Joseph Stern, a staff writer for the left-wing rag “Slate,” believed he hit pay dirt when he found and took screenshots of two Facebook posts that allegedly appeared on Ginni’s Facebook page.
The first Facebook post allegedly from Ginni’s personal page said she would be watching the “MAGA crowd” in DC that came to support Trump. She also said she would be “watching to see what Congress does starting at 1 PM.”
For the record, Ginni wasn’t the only one waiting to see what Congress would do at 1 PM. Much of the nation was glued to their television sets on January 6, 2021.
In her second alleged Facebook post, Ginni said, “LOVE MAGA people”!!!! In another post, Ginni allegedly wrote, “GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU, STANDING UP or PRAYING!”
On the morning of Jan. 6, Ginni Thomas—wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas—endorsed the protest demanding that Congress overturn the election, then sent her “LOVE” to the demonstrators, who violently overtook the Capitol several hours later. She has not posted since. pic.twitter.com/378CHMkFN5

Stern’s “gotcha” tweet was followed up by another false accusation about how she “funded” the “insurrection” by paying for “80 busses” that were sent to DC on January 6th from various places.
Multiple fact-checkers explain how their claim about Ginni funding buses that brought Trump supporters to DC on Jan. 6 is false:
It is possible that Thomas supported the Save America March on January 6, 2021, from which many attendees journeyed to the Capitol, but there is no proof that Thomas was involved in the funding of 80 buses to the Capitol, nor is there evidence to suggest that she is an organizer of January 6.
The only evidence we have to suggest that Thomas may have “funded 80 buses for the protest” is a now-deleted January 2021 tweet from conservative activist Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA (TPUSA), and its sister organization, Turning Point Action, which describes itself as “accelerating freedom through conservative action.”
Kirk’s original tweet claimed that Students for Trump and Turning Point Action were “sending 80+ buses full of patriots to DC to fight for this president.”
This left-wing activist [falsely] accuses Ginni of “paying for buses to carry white men and women to our capitol so that they could carry out an insurrectionist meant to disenfranchise the vote of black men and women.”
Isn’t it funny that a white woman married to a black man paid for buses to carry white men and women to our capitol so that they could carry out an insurrectionist meant to disenfranchise the vote of black men and women?
I hope that Ginni Thomas smiles for her mugshot. pic.twitter.com/7JftKK3St9

In a recent hit piece, Slate had this to say about Ginni Thomas:
Thomas, a conservative lobbyist and zealous supporter of Donald Trump, has fervently defended the president over the last four years. On her Facebook page, she frequently promotes baseless conspiracy theories about a “coup” against Trump led by Jewish philanthropist George Soros, a frequent target of anti-Semitic hate. Thomas draws many of these theories from fringe corners of the internet, including an anti-vax Facebook group that claimed Bill Gates would use the COVID vaccine to kill people. In recent months, she also amplified unsubstantiated corruption claims against Joe Biden while insisting, falsely, that the Obama administration illegally spied on Trump’s 2016 campaign, then tried to rig the election against him.
The Slate doesn’t understand that most Republicans, and even Independents for that matter, will agree with many of the claims the Slate alleges Ginni made on social media.
The truth is, as long as her husband continues to be the most conservative member of the United States Supreme Court, Ginni is going to be a target of the Left. But don’t worry about Ginni Thomas—her ability to ignore the haters and remain focused on the things that matter most have allowed her to survive America’s Swamp for decades.
She’s everything the Left despises— a strong, color-blind, independent woman of faith who loves her family, fights for America, and does it all with a smile on her face.
Pray for Ginni Thomas, pray for her husband, US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and pray for our nation.
The fake, self-appointed January 6 Committee, whose only job is to round up Trump’s most influential supporters and tie them into the fake “insurrection,” by casting a wide net across the United States, have exposed themselves, along with the bad actors in our intelligence agencies and those at the top level of the DOJ as the real insurrectionists.
