Rogan implies J6 was a false flag to get Trump: Intel agencies ‘were going to get him any way they could’

Joe Rogan posited during his podcast that the Jan. 6 protest could have been a false flag event that was meant to take down former President Trump one way or another.

The massively popular podcast host made the comments during a sit-down with comedian Jim Gaffigan.

“The January 6 thing is bad, but also, the intelligence agencies were involved in provoking people into the Capitol Building. That’s a fact,” Rogan noted, going on to point out that Ray Epps could have been a plant by the feds.

“I don’t know, but I do know that every other, I think that every other person who was involved in January 6, who was involved in coordinating a break-in into the Capitol and then instigating people, they were all arrested. This guy wasn’t,” he charged.

“Not only that, but they were defending him in the New York Times, the Washington Post, all these different things saying Fox News has unjustly accused him of instigating when he clearly instigated, he did it on camera,” Rogan accurately contended. “I don’t know if he was a fed, I know a lot of people think he was a fed.”

Per leftist media outlet MSNBC, Epps claims that because of continuous exposure on Fox News that he is now going to be charged over Jan 6. That still hasn’t happened.

However, Epps has filed a defamation suit against Fox News because of on-air claim suggestions that he was the “smoking gun of the entire fedsurrection.” That seems to be aimed at former host Tucker Carlson who exposed Epps at every turn much to the anger of leftists and the chagrin of Epps.

“‘The relentless attacks by Fox and Mr. Carlson and the resulting political pressure likely resulted in the criminal charges,’ according to Epps’ defamation complaint filed in Delaware this week,” MSNBC reported.

His lawsuit is seeking damages from Fox News for the harassment and death threats he claims he’s faced as well as a long list of other consequences.

According to Mediaite, following the protest, one person told authorities that Epps advised him to just “relax” and then said that “the cops are doing their job.” Epps also reportedly called an FBI tip line to recount the events of that day. He allegedly claimed the 2020 election had been stolen from Trump.

It should be noted that Rogan did not say he believed in the Epps theory, he simply brought up the possibility that it could have happened. He repeated what he had heard and stated that using “agent provocateurs” was a “common tactic” used by federal agencies “to disrupt peaceful protests.”

Gaffigan didn’t seem to believe Epps was a plant. He said he was “more suspicious why Trump didn’t call for backup when you know, for the Capitol police.”

Rogan reiterated that the use of agent provocateurs is a “standard tactic,” especially when “someone is the enemy of the intelligence agencies.”

“With Trump, that’s absolutely the case. Trump set himself up against the intelligence agencies,” he told his guest.

“So you’re saying when he was in Helsinki and he was saying ‘I believe Putin more than my intelligence community,’ that was something the intelligence community was like ‘we’re gonna get him’?” Gaffigan asked Rogan.

“Well, I think they were going to get him in any way that they could because he’s an enemy of the intelligence agencies, and he was openly talking about them being incompetent and being corrupt,” Rogan responded.

He commented that January 6 allowed the agencies to claim “this president is responsible for this insurrection attempt.”
