Who is Ray Epps and what was he doing near the Capitol last January?

Instigating violence and breach of the Capitol.

Just doing his job as agent provocateur.

Senator Ted Cruz grilled a senior FBI official about the activities of an Oath Keeper leader who provoked cries of “Fed! Fed!” when he goaded protesters to storm the Capitol. The official refused to answer or explain why Epps was not charged but admitted knowing who he is.
