Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, grilled a senior FBI official on whether or not FBI agents or confidential informants played a role in the Capitol protest on Jan. 6, 2021, but she would not confirm nor deny anything.
At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing titled, “The Domestic Terrorism Threat One Year After January 6,” Cruz asked Jill Sanborn, executive assistant director for the FBI’s national security branch, about suspicions held by some that government officials encouraged lawless behavior during the protest.
“How many FBI agents or confidential informants actively participated in the events of Jan. 6?” Cruz asked.
Sanborn said in response that she could not discuss “the specifics of sources and methods” of the FBI.
Cruz then broadened his question by asking if any FBI agents or confidential informants actively participated in the riot.
“Sir, I can’t answer that,” she said.
Cruz then asked if any agents or confidential informants committed crimes of violence on Jan. 6. When he received the same answer, he asked if any agents or confidential informants “actively encouraged” crimes of violence on Jan. 6.
“Sir, I can’t answer that.”
Cruz then brought up Ray Epps, who was seen on video the day before the riot, telling a crowd, “Tomorrow, we need to get into the Capitol! Into the Capitol!” The crowd responded by shouting, “Fed! Fed! Fed!” at him.
……”Miss Sanborn, was Ray Epps a fed?” Cruz asked.
“Sir, I cannot answer that question,” Sanborn replied.
Cruz asked more questions about Epps’ actions, and Sanborn said she could not answer.
The FBI framed the 6 January MAGA protesters by inserting undercover agents and informants in the crowd to encourage violence. It backfired, but that’s not stopping the Feds from persecuting people who simply wandered the hallways, stood outside the building, and peacefully protested.
Epps was a Fed plant. If the Dems ever go through with their 6 January Inquisition, the GOP should subpoena that son of a bitch, as well.
