A newly released video showing Ray Epps urging people to invade the U.S. Capitol on the night before the so-called “insurrection” on January 6, 2021, will likely only confirm suspicions of many that the mysterious figure was a provocateur acting on behalf of shadowy government forces.
In the footage that’s included in a new report by investigative journalist Lara Logan for Truth in Media, Epps is seen telling people who were in Washington, D.C. to protest the results of the 2020 election to “I’m gonna put it out there – I’m probably going to go to jail for it, okay – tomorrow, we need to go into the Capitol! Into the Capitol!”
In the video, some of those who are being egged on by Epps shouted “No!” as others booed the idea with some chanting “Fed! Fed! Fed! Fed!” at the burly former Marine and alleged Trump supporter.
Why was Ray Epps treated as victim by the same people who condemned almost everyone around him as a threat?

Logan talks with influencer Anthime “Tim” Gionet aka Baked Alaska who recorded the explosive footage of Epps on the night before the fateful day that was used by Democrats, their allies, and the media to paint targets on the backs of all supporters of the former president whom they accused of participating in an actual attempt to overthrow the entire federal government.
“In fact tomorrow – I don’t even like to say it because I’ll be arrested – we need to go in to the Capitol,” Epps tells Baked Alaska who tells others, “I didn’t see that coming” before walking away from the man wearing the red MAGA hat. But Epps engages with Gionet again 10 minutes later, leaning toward the influencer to quietly say “We’re not here to fight man. We’re here to storm the Capitol.”
Baked Alaska dismissed the idea but Epps insisted, “I’m not kidding,” to which the influencer told the troublemaker “Alright, have a good night, be safe. Be safe brother.”
“This is scripted because he said the same exact line word for word three times and that’s not natural,” Gionet told Logan, saying that he was “weirded out” by Epps.
“I go to another group way far away from him, he follows me, and that’s when he begins instructing the crowd,” he said of when Epps was caught on video telling the crowd “We need to go into the Capitol.”
“Right when he said that something clicked in my head,” he added. “It was like, whoa! This is scripted because he said the same exact line word for word three times and that’s not natural.”
“Maybe the first time, he’s being silly or saying something crazy, but when he said it the third time word for word, I knew there’s a strong possibility this guy’s a fed. I started that chant, and guess what? The whole crowd joined in with me—within seconds,” he told Logan.
Epps has vehemently denied that he was working on behalf of the government and has sued those who claim that he has.
