Wow, Ray Epps has finally officially been indicted for his role in January 6.
In spite of the fact that there are multiple videos of Epps trying to rally protestors to march on the Capitol, over two years have gone by without any real legal consequences for him.
That changes now, as Epps has just been charged by the DOJ with one single misdemeanor…
Yeah, you heard that right…
Epps has been charged with “disorderly or disruptive conduct on restricted grounds.”
People are rotting in prison for putting their feet on a desk and this is all Epps gets?
This doesn’t exactly squash the “Ray Epps is an FBI plant” theory now does it?

NBC has more on the solitary misdemeanor:
Ray Epps, a Jan. 6 participant whose removal from the FBI’s Capitol Violence webpage sparked conspiracy theories that he was a federal informant, was charged in connection with the Capitol attack on Tuesday.
Epps is charged with one misdemeanor count, disorderly or disruptive conduct on restricted grounds. He was charged by information, which suggests that he plans to enter a plea deal.
The criminal information charges that Epps “did knowingly, and with intent to impede and disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business and official functions, engage in disorderly and disruptive conduct in and within such proximity to, a restricted building and grounds—that is, any posted, cordoned-off, and otherwise restricted area within the United States Capitol and its grounds, where the Vice President was and would be temporarily visiting—when and so that such conduct did in fact impede and disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business and official functions, and attempted and conspired to do so.”
They finally charged Ray Epps.

Daily Mail has more details:
Epps is accused of ‘knowingly, and with intent to impede and disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business and official functions, engage in disorderly and disruptive conduct.’
It states that this was in and around ‘any posted, cordoned-off, and otherwise restricted area within the United States Capitol and its grounds, where the Vice President was and would be temporarily visiting’.
He is also accused of ‘impeding and disrupting’ the ‘orderly conduct of Government business and official functions, and attempted and conspired to do so.’
Thousands of others who gathered on the restricted grounds have not been charged unless they engaged in aggravating conduct, such as attacking cops or destroying property.
Epps was videotaped telling people to go to the Capitol, and has only just been charged – months after others were linked to the case.
The delay in charges gave rise to the theory that he was an FBI plant sent to whip up the riot.

Don’t be fooled by the token single charge of a misdemeanor on Ray Epps. They wont elevate his charges to terrorism as they did with everyone else who did FAR LESS.
He won’t see a day in prison. This is a farce.

Like so many efforts to cover up the Ray Epps questions, this phony charge, years after, will only make things worse for the Fed narrative
The people know the truth already. It's too late. https://t.co/7Ob0BsG3Ya

They only charged Ray Epps because of the backlash about not being charged for so long. https://t.co/kzEOs1cPFJ
