Screenshot: Ray Epps’ Lawsuit Against Fox News Reveals He Was Just An FBI Pawn And They Are Cutting Him Loose – Here Are The Details

Fox News is facing a new defamation lawsuit from a man who claims that former host Tucker Carlson falsely identified him as an undercover FBI agent who triggered the January 6th attack on the Capitol.

Although Epps was outside the Capitol on January 6, he “did not believe violence was appropriate,” acted to deescalate the situation, and ultimately left the grounds for his hotel, according to his lawsuit.

Videos from that day picture totally different story about Epps.

But as recently as earlier this year, according to the lawsuit, Carlson cited Epps as a central figure in the attack on the Capitol that was orchestrated by the government and floated the notion that Epps was being protected by federal law enforcement.

Epps accused the network of making him a “scapegoat” for what happened in the Capitol attack. with a “years-long” campaign of spreading falsehoods about him.

On Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray, appearing at a congressional hearing, rejected claims that Epps was working as a government agent. He also said it was “ludicrous” to think that the FBI was somehow behind the attack on the Capitol.

In the aftermath of the Capitol riot, after FBI posted a photo of Epps on its website seeking information about him, he immediately contacted the agency and later met with FBI officials, according to the lawsuit. The agency removed his photo from their website in July, 2021.

But Carlson, the lawsuit claimed, became “fixated” with Epps, as the host promoted the idea that the January 6th attack was a “false flag” operation. That included a documentary series, Patriot Purge, that was first posted on Fox Nation later in the year.

Looks like Epps was just an FBI pawn and they are cutting him loose by arresting him as an insurrectionist. It’s really the FBIs only move. They can’t confirm it.

The details of Ray Epps’ civil complaint against Fox News reveal that he is being criminally charged by the DOJ, almost three years after the fact.

“Finally, in May 2023, the Department of Justice notified Epps that it would seek to charge him criminally for events on January 6, 2021—two-and-a-half years later. The relentless attacks by Fox and Mr. Carlson and the resulting political pressure likely resulted in the criminal charges” the complaint reads.

The complaint continues, blaming Fox News for the criminal charges: “… it is difficult to believe that the Department of Justice would have pursued this matter if Fox had not focused its lies on Epps, ultimately the criminal charges conclusively demonstrate the falsehood of the story that Mr. Carlson and Fox told about Epps.

What took the DOJ so long?

Didn’t we know that Epps was an FBI pawn, all along? I mean…DUH! LOL! Don’t worry, they have no more use for Epps…but they’ll make sure he’s got a golden parachute. He won’t want for anything and he certainly won’t face the fate of the Democrats’ other J6 victims.
