What facts?

You don't believe facts that rain on your little daydream fantasy. The defining characteristic of "conservatives" in America now is that they don't believe in objective truth anymore.

Ray Epps was not FBI. Fact.

His life has been ruined by this idiotic, debunked conspiracy theory that still circulates around MAGA world.

now the entire country knows a lot more and many changed their thoughts and feelings with now what we know

Now the entire country knows that Tucker thinks his viewers are suckers, and that they'll probably come around to the belief that Jan. 6 was just a peaceful tour of the capitol. Which it wasn't.

“Seems like our raid of the capital set off a chain reaction of events throughout the country. i’m so (expletive) proud."

Put him in a cage where he belongs.

So Nugent admits that he is a 'sheep' because he claims he 'didn't expect' violence - yet he went along with it anyway. That's no excuse. Going along with the crowd makes you just as guilty.

I hope the judge doesn't take his sob story or that of any of these traitors. They need to be punished SEVERELY.

Bass: Speaking of Epps, where is he, why wasn’t he charged? He was the one that started it on egging the protesters and now he’s just vaporized and we can’t ask about him because the Dems just don’t want to talk about him?

You can read about him in the final January 6 report.

You can read online about Ray Epps and why there were no charges and the main point he wasn't working for the FBI.

"Recordings released to defense lawyers directly challenge assertions by prominent Republicans that an Arizona man named Ray Epps was a federal informant and helped start the Capitol riot."

https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/05/us/jan-6-ray-epps-evidence.html

FACT FOCUS: Federal agents didn’t orchestrate Jan. 6 riot

"THE FACTS: There’s no evidence to support that Epps — who has not been arrested or charged in connection with the Jan. 6 riot — was anything but a disgruntled supporter of former President Donald Trump, like thousands of others who descended on the Capitol that day. "

https://www.fox34.com/2022/01/12/fact-focus-federal-agents-didnt-orchestrate-jan-6-riot/

"On Jan. 6, 2021, about 140 police officers were assaulted during the Capitol riot, and 326 participants — more than 100 armed with weapons — have been charged. But Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson has used recently released video from that day to misleadingly minimize the violence at the riot and to distort the actions of the police."

Ray Epps has been put to bed.

Trump supporters are such wets and live in a world of denial and conspiracies. Now the LOP. Lunatic Old Party.

Kevin McCarthy accidentally gives the game away on Trump’s calls for protests

McCarthy makes a head-spinning defense of Trump's mob-friendly language.

"As my colleague Hayes Brown explained, on Saturday House Speaker Kevin McCarthy irresponsibly co-signed Trump’s inflammatory and evidence-free allegations about a politicized investigation by promising to direct Congress to investigate “politically motivated prosecutions.” Speaking at a press conference the following day, though, McCarthy could’ve backtracked into responsibility and admitted that what Trump was saying was worrisome or wrong. "

No to protests

The facts on Ray Epps have already been published. The supporters of the criminal rioter and looters still spout his name regardless of the facts. Already been proven he wasn't an FBI plant.

It was Trump. the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, and others who orchestrated Jan 6, not the FBI.

Investigators have already spoken to Ray Epps, one of Tucker Carlson's favorite targets. FAUX news admitted telling lies over the so-called stolen election.

Yeah, the left tired real hard to discredit Tucker and it failed worse than the J6 hearings.

ratings = truth

Let's give it up for home schooling!

Trump supporters have become a bunch of fruitcakes with their silly conspiracy theories and election denials. Major members of the GOP declared that the 2020 elections weren't stolen. They also hold Trump responsible for orchestrating Jan 6.

How is an article from 2012 relevant?

Send those losers to jail..

The GoP are apparently useless.

Why on earth would anyone want to vote for or support such a bunch of whiny ineffective losers? No leadership, no ideas, only ‘just you wait’ revenge fantasies and mental gymnastics to explain continual losing and losing and losing. Losers.

"House Judiciary Democrats claimed Friday that three witnesses who have spoken to Republicans as part of the GOP investigation into politicization at the FBI have offered no evidence of wrongdoing by the law enforcement agency. "

"They also said the witnesses were connected to committee Republicans through people with deep ties to former President Trump. "

"“The three individuals we have met are not, in fact, ‘whistleblowers.’ These individuals, who put forward a wide range of conspiracy theories, did not present actual evidence of any wrongdoing at the Department of Justice or the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” the committee Democrats wrote in a more than 300-page report released Friday. "

So Americans should not have a choice in the public school area and be schooled by progressives?

I see. LOL

How is an article from 2012 relevant?

Read it first please.

You can read online about Ray Epps

Again, no one in their right mind trusts the top leadership of the FBI, that is one reason why the GOP house has more than 12 FBI whistleblowers that have come forward.

FACT FOCUS: Federal agents didn’t orchestrate Jan. 6 riot

Ok, you can believe that if you want, I don't, FACT!

"THE FACTS: There’s no evidence to support that Epps

I think there is and thanks to Musk and McCarthy and as they comb through these files and witness testimonies we should be finding out more in due time.

"On Jan. 6, 2021, about 140 police officers were assaulted during the Capitol riot, and 326 participants — more than 100 armed with weapons — have been charged. But Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson has used recently released video from that day to misleadingly minimize the violence at the riot and to distort the actions of the police."

Ray Epps has been put to bed.

No, not for millions of Americans and definetely not for the House Republicans.

You can read about him in the final January 6 report.

ROFL!

OK, so the main perpetrator and instigator is dismissed, not even called in to ever testify or be cross-examined? Yeah, no wonder the entire sham trail was a disaster.

The facts on Ray Epps have already been published. The supporters of the criminal rioter and looters still spout his name regardless of the facts.

What facts?

Already been proven he wasn't an FBI plant.

Wait, the same FBI org that tried to destroy Trump’s Presidency? You mean, with people like Comey, Page, Ohr, McCabe, Strzok, Yeah, we believe them. Lol

It was Trump. the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, and others who orchestrated Jan 6, not the FBI.

Yeah, now the entire country knows a lot more and many changed their thoughts and feelings with now what we know.

Investigators have already spoken to Ray Epps,

And no charges brought, odd. Usually never happens in a real criminal Justice system, but it’s now run by progressive Dems, we get it.

one of Tucker Carlson's favorite targets. FAUX news admitted telling lies over the so-called stolen election.

And the J6 lied to the nation, so I would say it’s all square now

*So Nugent admits that he is a 'sheep' because he claims he 'didn't expect' violence - *yet he went along with it anyway. 

So you’re constitutionally not allowed to protest, or question your government is what you’re saying? We live in the US not Somalia.

That's no excuse.

No one said such and those goes to all of the rioters and looters that went on a 3 month ramp age of mayhem and destruction.

Going along with the crowd makes you just as guilty. 

Speaking of Epps, where is he, why wasn’t he charged? He was the one that started it on egging the protesters and now he’s just vaporized and we can’t ask about him because the Dems just don’t want to talk about him?

*I hope the judge doesn't take his sob story or that of any of these traitors. *

I hope you feel the exact same way about criminal in the coming years, two can play that game.

They need to be punished SEVERELY

For what?
