Ray Epps, Capitol Rioter & Victim Of Conspiracy Theories, Is Charged For Actions During Jan. 6 Insurrection

Ray Eppsa January 6 rioter and victim of conspiracy theorists, was charged with a count of disorderly conduct.

Epps has been accused of “knowingly, and with intent to impede and disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business and official functions, engage in disorderly and disruptive conduct.”

Additionally, he will be charged for “impeding and disrupting the orderly conduct of Government business and official functions, and attempts and conspired to do so.”

“I never intended to break the law,” Epps said in a statement. “I never intended to break the law. It’s not in my DNA. I’ve never – I’m sure you’ve looked up my record. I don’t break the law.”

In July, the former Marine filed a lawsuit against Fox News after former host Tucker Carlson repeatedly accused Epps of being a “federal agent who helped stage-manage the insurrection.”

Thousands of people stormed through the Capitol on the afternoon of January 6, 2021, and 1,000 have been charged with crimes related to the conduct.

The video of Epps telling individuals to go into the Capitol and the delayed charge in his case raised questions among conspiracy theorists about whether he might be an FBI agent who was sent to “help stage-manage” the riot.
