Ted Cruz Demands White House 'Fess Up' About FBI Involvement on January 6 (VIDEO)


Senator Ted Cruz is demanding that the White House “fess up” about FBI involvement in the January 6 protest at the Capitol last year.

There has been much speculation on the right about undercover feds working to instigate the events of that day, particularly surrounding a man named Ray Epps.

“Out of all of the thousands of January 6’s protesters, and the thousands of hours of publicly available footage from that fateful day, Ray Epps has turned out to be perhaps the only person nailed dead to rights confessing on camera to plotting a pre-planned attack on the Capitol. On both January 5 and January 6, Epps announced multiple times, at multiple locations, his upcoming plot to breach the US Capitol. He then spent hours attempting to recruit hundreds of others to join him. On top of it all, Epps was seen leading key people and managing key aspects of the initial breach of the Capitol grounds himself,” Revolver News, who broke the story, reports.

During a senate hearing on Tuesday morning, Cruz laid into the executive assistant director for the FBI’s National Security Branch, Jill Sanborn, demanding answers about the agency’s involvement — and about Epps specifically.

“Who is Ray Epps? There are a lot of people who are understandably very concerned about Mr. Epps. On the night of January 5th, 2021, Epps wandered around the crowd that had gathered and there is video out there of him chanting ‘tomorrow, we need to get into the Capitol.’ This behavior was so strange the crowd began chanting, ‘Fed, Fed, Fed, Fed, Fed, Fed, Fed.’ Ms. Sanborn, was Ray Epps a Fed?” Cruz asked.

Sandborn responded by saying, “I can’t answer that question.”

Later that evening, Cruz appeared on Fox News’ Hannity to continue demanding answers about the FBI’s involvement.

“Unfortunately, under Joe Biden we have seen an incredibly partisan Department of Justice,” Cruz said. “And both the Department of Justice and the FBI have an arrogance that they are not accountable to anyone, they can stonewall, so it should be very easy for the FBI to say, ‘No, no federal agents participated in violent crimes.’”

Cruz went on to note that Epps originally appeared in the “wanted” photo arrays from January 6 that the FBI was releasing — but was suddenly removed.

“I asked the FBI, is Mr. Epps an agent of the FBI, is he an informant of the FBI and she stonewalled, refused to answer,” Cruz stated. “We know the FBI put him out on the list they wanted information about and then magically he disappeared.

“There needs to be transparency, and the Biden administration needs to fess up.”

    Fedora21 ashamed to admit I was sick around 2016 and wasn’t paying attention to the likes of “Texas Ted” Cruz but I AM now. Dude appears think he is SELF employed.

  2. Fedora21 says:

    He knew he was in hot water when he got called out time and again and ultimately by Tucker so now he’s engaging in political theater just like all the times he yelled at Zuck and Jack and whoever is in charge of Alphabet. But don’t worry, he’ll write a strongly worded letter…

    Cruz is a fraud. After the shit he tried to pull on Ben Carson in ’16, should have told you all you needed to know.

    Someone recently said this on IRL and it is very relevant here. People go into political office to try to do good and bring about change for the better. However once they have power, their first priority is keeping up with the popularity contest. After a while, Tim’s “keys to the castle” analogy comes into play. This is how we wind up with Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell, Romney, etc. We’re just seeing Ted Cruz half way between the popularity contest and trying to keep the keys to the castle.

    Dude flip flops on issues more than beach footwear… First January 6th is a terrorist attack. Now it’s an FBI operation? Or is the implication here that the FBI is conducting terrorist attacks on its home soil? The saddest part is, given everything I’ve heard the last few years I’d give it serious consideration.

    Hey, I’m sure you guys got a lot going on and all and we get you’re still setting up, but can we get an edit button someday when you got time? I’m sure it’s on your list, but it’s annoying not to have one.

  5. Wolv256 says:

    Oh sure, Ted, they’re just going to fess up. They probably would have gotten away with it too if you did sternly plead for them to self confess.

    Be a man! You don’t ask them, you accuse and charge them and put them on trial for treason!!! They are not going to just admit to it. And you know that. So this is all just theatre to placate the public while nothing changes and the world burns! No!!! I do NOT accept this! We need justice now, not theatre! I will not be destracted. We are not going away. Those responsible will be brought to justice!!!

    The true answer is: This IS an illegal Government, simply because the “winner” NEVER actually had the number of votes needed to legally WIN the Election!!
    This ISN’T the SOVIET UNION!
    Keep your guns hidden until you need to kill someone to stay alive. you WILL need to do so VERY SOON!
    These Anti American Commies forget about ALL the WARS they’ve been killing US in! WE Americans LOVE to bring home PRIZES!

    “Ms. Sanborn, was Ray Epps a Fed?” Cruz asked.
    Sandborn responded by saying, “I can’t answer that question.””

    That means yes.
