Lawsuit Reveals Epps Will Be Criminally Charged for Involvement in J6

Republican politicians and conservative pundits have long questioned the role Ray Epps allegedly played in the Jan. 6 unrest at the U.S. Capitol after the Arizona man can be seen in multiple videos trying to encourage Trump supporters to "go into the Capitol." 

Tucker Carlson looked closely at Jan. 6 for his "Tucker Carlson Tonight" viewers and highlighted what he called 'one of the enduring mysteries," which is the role that federal law enforcement agencies and the intelligence community played in the events that day. 

Though the FBI has thrown all manner of folk behind bars for their involvement in Jan. 6, no matter how trivial, "for some reason, Epps has never been indicted," Carlson explained of Epps. 

In fact, Epps was reportedly going to be a key topic of discussion on Carlson's program the day he got unceremoniously canned. It was said the former host would be responding to an interview Epps did with "60 Minutes," apparently laying the groundwork for a massive lawsuit against Fox News, which has now come to fruition. Epps, who claimed Carlson and others on the network ruined his life over the false accusations, which the FBI has also denied, sued the network for defamation this week, accusing it of "creating and disseminating destructive conspiracy theories." 

But there is one part of the lawsuit that's caught many people's attention – the fact that his lawyer revealed he is being criminally charged. 

"Finally, in May 2023, the Department of Justice notified Epps that it would seek to charge him criminally for events on January 6, 2021—two-and-a-half years later. The relentless attacks by Fox and Mr. Carlson and the resulting political pressure likely resulted in the criminal charges," the complaint states. 

Elsewhere in the lawsuit, Epps admits he encouraged people to go into the Capitol, but claimed it was an effort to "find common ground."
