Liz Cheney Silent On Possible Jan 6 Federal Operative

“We have an actual insurrectionist on tape and yet he’s escaped prosecution.”

Outgoing Congresswoman Liz Cheney refused to answer questions when confronted about a man some are convinced is a federal agent or informant sent to instigate violence on January 6, 2021.

Speaking at an event at the University of Chicago last week, Cheney, who suffered a landslide defeat against a Trump-backed primary challenger in August, was quizzed by student and independent journalist Daniel Schmidt about her actions while on the January 6 Committee.

Schmidt noted that in June, Cheney cited the prosecution of a number of Proud Boys who the Department of Justice said “directed, mobilised, and led members of the crowd onto the Capitol grounds and into the Capitol.”

“The fact of the matter is, we have another person on camera doing exactly that. His name is Ray Epps,” Schmidt highlighted, to groans from the crowd. “It’s not a conspiracy theory,” he added.

Epps was seen on video repeatedly saying that “we need to go into the Capitol,” despite saying that he would be “arrested” if he gets caught saying that. Darren Beattie of Revolver News declared that Epps was “the only individual caught on camera repeatedly urging people to go into the Capitol as early as January 5th,” despite being been portrayed sympathetically by the media.

“We have an actual insurrectionist on tape and yet he’s escaped prosecution,” Schmidt pointed out to Cheney. “So let me just ask you right here. Do you demand the prosecution of Ray Epps?” he asked the outgoing Representative.

Unsurprisingly, Cheney was deflective in her answer, claiming that people were “confused” about the role of Congress and about “who makes decisions about prosecutions”:

“I don’t think anybody has denied that that video tape exists. I’ve seen the videotape. I’ve seen thousands of people saying things like ‘let’s go into the Capitol’. You’ve seen trials of a number of people who did go into the Capitol. You’ve seen convictions of thousands of them. I think the question is whether or not you understand who makes prosecution decisions, and the people who make decisions about whether they’re going to prosecute or not is at the Department of Justice.”

Instead of addressing the specifics of what Epps had actually been caught on camera doing, Cheney reverted back to attacking “conspiracy theories” about his involvement with the federal government, which she claimed there was “no evidence” of.

Cheney said that Americans must “set aside conspiracy theories and agree fundamentally on what is the line in our democracy that can’t be crossed,” with that being “you can’t use violence to attempt to overturn an election, if you’re the President of the United States you have to guarantee the peaceful transition of power, and we have to be a nation of laws, and it’s not a partisan issue.”

Following the remarks, another student apologised for Schmidt’s “behavior,” to which Schmidt slammed on Twitter as evidence that other students “will happily defend the regime and warmongers like Cheney” from people just “asking questions.”

      Agree. The entire J6 cmte should be indicted for treason to arrest and imprison true Americans seeking justice from elected officials. True elected officials, not the self-serving deep state globalists (such as Cheney) may as well wear the red coat of the CCP. Ray Epps was either a subversive black hat FBI instigator or a CIA operative to make Trump supporters appear to be hostile when he was the #1 operative working for Pelosi.

    There was no violence on J6, until Ray Epps and scaffold comander started yelling orders to people. Yet, neither of these have been before the commission to be interviewed and have never been arrested. Why not? Cheney tried to dodge the answer and say they had no part in prosecution if these people. Why has Pelosi, Schumer, nor the DC mayor never had to answer, for their part in not requesting the National Guard, that Trump has ready for deployment? These 3 had the power to to set troops in place and refused to do so. It’s their inaction that should be questioned. The commission and FBI officials refused to answer, if there were paid actors, FBI informants, or FBI agents that participated in the violence. Why is that? Pelosi and Schumer were off making a fake propaganda documentary about the day, in a safe location away from the Capital and Pelosi’s life was in no way in any danger. The J6 commission is only a conspiracy theory, to convince the weak minded, that the country was in danger.

      And don’t forget the short cop who was waving protestors into the building; the 2 cops who suddenly left their posts after which the outside windows were smashed AND the 2 cops guarding the inner door who left just before the “hero cop” slaughtered Ashli Babbitt who was NO threat to him!
      Lizzie was only interested in the four cops who all had anti-Trump media posts who would back up the phony narrative.

      Compare the J6 damage,
      and the lives that were lost,
      to the violent (peaceful riots),
      Across our nation have cost.
      IMPEACH and IMPRISON,
      the J6 committee,
      for misuse of office,
      and misuse of the plenty.

      I agree, to much of what they say is pure fabrication. 95% of the concerned citizens of the USA which were there were peaceful until the last 5%, which we have high suspicion as being FBI or paid actors started the hostilities. Trump really just was pissed at what he saw and we know now as hidden voter fraud. It still makes no since. Insurrection? I would hardly call it that, but if this select group of Democratic leaders keep this crap up I am sure the January 6th event will look like child’s play compared to what could happen. The citizens of the USA have let the tail wag the dog way way way too long.

    The Jan 6th Select Committee was illegally created under Pelosi by not using House Rules as to the membership of said Committee ! They have no power and can do NOTHING Legally because of the Broken House Rules !

    Why is no one talking about those 6 busses of ANTIFA and BLM that had police escorts from Baltimore to DC. Once in DC the Capital Police took over and escorted them right to the Capital. Then you have the Capital Police who not only removed barricades to allow those busses to enter the Capital building parking lots and opened those locked doors to the Capital. Epps is just 1 of the hundreds of Federal government officials who were behind the whole,”Let’s go into the Capital. ” The FBI also have hundreds of agents spread throughout that crowd. And let’s not forget that the gang at the Capital who started it were not at President Trump’s speech. Trump was still speaking when those Magnetically Locked Doors were opened by someone inside who had access to the Computer that had the codes to unlock them. It takes a good 20 to 40 minutes to walk from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capital. Yet the media’s coverage proves there were already 10’s of thousands at the Capital while Trump still spoke. Liz is completely Delousional in her thinking. If they really were interested in Justice they would be going after anyone involved in the 4 years of rioting,arson and theft that occurred during Trump’s 4 years. Instead Congress went after Trump and his supporters at every turn because they knew had they not every single Democrat and probably half the Republicans in Congress would have been charged with Crimes against the American People. Now that the Republicans control the House again hopefully we will see the same type investigations againcst the entire Biden Administration.

    As I address the comments of the ignorant, let me say that sometimes violence is necessary. It’s how we became a country. Let me just quote Thomas Jefferson from one of our founding documents (you may have heard of the Declaration of Independence – CAPs mine for effect):
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER OR TO ABOLISH IT, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

    Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience has shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

    But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, IT IS THEIR RIGHT, IT IS THEIR DUTY, TO THROW OFF SUCH GOVERNMENT, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

    When dumbocraps rig the system to stuff ballot boxes by mail, illegally allow electronic voting machines to connect to the Internet, continue to dump often fraudulently created / harvested ballots well after the end of the election – AND dem judges DENY legitimate court cases on STANDING without hearing EVIDENCE, etc., what recourse aside from violence is left??

    When a person is asked a question that should be answered with a simple “yes” or “no”, but instead spend over two minutes on political misdirection speech, you know they are hiding something.

    The existence or non-existence of “conspiracy theories” has nothing to do with the question of Ray Epps. Does she or doesn’t she believe Epps should be treated just as others that day have been treated? It’s a Yes or No question.

    Cheney was very diplomatic in her non-answer, but it was a non-answer, just the same.

    The Cheneys are classic Washington swamp creatures. Parties, patriotism, principles mean nothing to them. They are cut from the substance of George Soros, the most evil man alive today and the Cheneys are only a cheap imitation, but a dangerous one indeed. Be sure, Liz will be back or die trying.
