These eight Trump supporters are serving years in prison for “touching” a giant Trump sign that was thrown at police on January 6, 2021. No officers were injured in what the government ruled was an “assault” on police.
On Sunday night “60 Minutes” ran an entire fluff piece on Ray Epps, defending his conduct leading Trump supporters to the US Capitol, breaking through two sets of barriers, and urging Trump supporters to enter the US Capitol on January 6.
The once respected news magazine ran an entire segment defending Ray Epps and NEVER ONCE mentioned his criminal assault that day!
The fake news outlet HID THIS from the American public!
On January 11, 2022, then Rep. Adam Kinzinger defended likely FBI cut-out Ray Epps. Kinzinger claimed Ray Epps, the one person caught on video directing Trump supporters to break into the US Capitol, did nothing wrong.
4) He didn’t enter the Capitol on Jan 6, and was removed from the most wanted list because apparently, he broke no laws. I’m pretty sure the FBI wouldn’t be dumb enough to put their own agent on a wanted list. Ray Epps has cooperated with the Jan 6 committee and we thank him

In his testimony before the sham January 6 Committee on January 21, 2022, Ray Epps insisted “I don’t break the law” and “It’s not in my DNA.”
But this was not true. Ray Epps was not being honest in his testimony under oath to the January 6 Committee. Ray Epps, a likely federal cut-out, was never arrested despite leading crowds to the US Capitol and taking part in a criminal assault.
We have the evidence on Epps.

Ray Epps is a free man. He was NEVER arrested after encouraging Trump supporters to rush the Capitol Police — And we have evidence that several Americans are now serving time for a criminal act Ray Epps was involved in on January 6th.
Patty McMurray at 100 Percent Fed Up discovered this video months ago.
In this damning video, Ray Epps is filmed hoisting a massive Trump sign with several other Trump supporters. Epps was likely leading the efforts as he led the crowd when they breached not just the first set of barriers to the US Capitol but also the second set of barriers to the US Capitol that day. (another crime)
You can see Ray Epps in the video near the corner of the sign.
The protesters walk it over to where the police are standing outside the US Capitol.
Ray Epps is with them the entire time. After the sign is released the Ray Epps pops up and is seen standing and directing the crowd.
This was captured on video. Patty McMurray discovered this clip.
In January The Gateway Pundit posted an additional video of Ray Epps hurling the sign at police.
Please Note: No police officers were hurt during the incident.

Today several men are sitting in prison for touching the sign that passed over their heads that Ray Epps was hurling at police.

These men are serving years in prison for touching the sign – over 16 years total combined.
The average sentence for these men is around 3 years in prison – for TOUCHING the sign that Ray Epps hurled at police.
This is absolute tyranny. Our government is openly attacking its citizens.
Although many were trying to avoid being hit by it themselves, Epps clearly shoves the sign so hard that it knocks McHugh’s mom to the ground.
Ray Epps is a free man tonight.
