Man dies after crashing car, firing gunshots near U.S. Capitol

A 29-year-old Delaware man died in an apparent suicide early on Sunday after crashing his car into a barricade near the U.S. Capitol and firing shots into the air, police said. Read more >>

What happened with this? Who’s talking to China What do you want to do? You keep calling it an attack. They were let into the building. There is tons of video showing them just slowly and calming walking in. They dropped the barriers and opened the doors for them. They reduced guard numbers and refused to call for backup. The whole thing was a setup.

Only way to know if Epps was FBI or not is if a brave journalist gets an 'off the record' anonymous quote from someone in the FBI. The fact that none of the FBI spokespeople addressing the Jan 6 Committee would answer the question means nothing because I'm a Politico lemming Why wasn’t he indicted? Why was his file removed on 7/1/21 from FBI website. And why isn’t he under oath in a public hearing?

Why is he not in jail? Because he is a Fed? Is the article intended to be a report or opinion piece? It reads like a press release from J6 committee. Elephant in Room = Will he be under oath? Why is he not in jail answering questions through a camera? Seems a little odd he gets to sit with a select committee while others are locked away having their rights violated. Won’t the committee be concerned for their safety?🇺🇸🇺🇸

Jimmy Kimmel Spots Trump Rally's Wildest Moment -- And It Wasn't Even TrumpThe late-night host also found one thing he and Trump can agree on. Come on, Huff. Give trump less. Give forward more. I highly doubt this is newsworthy HuffPo. Finally he admits that the big guy is actually a big lie!

No one should read politico because it's not really political it's propoganda Lol transcribed, not video? That’s not suspicious at all Someone with blanket immunity can do that. He needs to be investigated. No special treatment. Most people can spin a yarn of half-truths, which the results of this Cmte will likely be.

Does 'transcribed' = Under Oath? I think he’s just a snitch who got a pass for cooperating So he wasn’t on the FBI list as a suspect when he was screaming for people to breach the capitol? LOL! He lawyered you and now the FBI is telling him exactly what to say If only we could interview all the Governors & Mayors. That told police to stand down. While a peaceful protest cost lives, did 5 billion in damages and even took over a 9 square block of Seattle. Where they destroyed the police station. Missing the 911 call center.

We’ll see what he has to say when republicans take control of the chamber. If you didn't watch the hearings prior to the 1/6 commission where fbi and other doj officials were unsure of Mr Epps involvement/whereabouts then ypu should probably go stubb your toe before commenting. Gotta love the media....

Over throwing our Govt maybe a good thing to happen. A Trump supporter told me that our system today is not democratic. Blacks will be better off in a new system than the current one now. Don't knock Trump. Our system of laws is corrupt by people like Trump and John Roberts. Select committee of Democrats and Liz Cheney... I want it to be televised and under oath. Enough bullshit already.

For Oath Keepers and founder, Jan. 6 was weeks in the makingHundreds of people have been charged in the Capitol riot, and many were animated by Donald Trump’s call to “fight like hell” just before the insurrection unfolded. But for the leader of the far-right militia group Oath Keepers and for others, there was no need for Trump’s words of encouragement. Action was already planned (After exhausting the legal process; taking it all the way to SCOTUS.) In contrast, cities were boarded up on election night because had Trump won, the Left wouldn't have bothered with the legal process. Yet nothing has been done, or charges filed, for the left’s destruction throughout 2020! Go figure…one-sided politics with only one objective…silence the real Americans. How’s FJB working out for y’all?

Blischak said he expected more details of Epps’ involvement to become public soon thereafter. Information on these pages contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Epps has kept a low profile since former President Donald Trump's allies began promoting a theory that Epps was a federal agent and helped foment the attack. Their claims stem from videos taken on Jan. 5 showing Epps urging Trump allies to “go into the Capitol” — an exhortation that some in the crowd quickly booed and responded to with chants accusing Epps of being a “fed. FXStreet does not in any way guarantee that this information is free from mistakes, errors, or material misstatements.” Epps quickly added that it should be done “peacefully. “We aren’t getting through this without a civil war,” the group’s leader, Stewart Rhodes, wrote fellow members, according to court documents.

If not otherwise explicitly mentioned in the body of the article, at the time of writing, the author has no position in any stock mentioned in this article and no business relationship with any company mentioned.” Four days later, when The Associated Press and other news outlets declared Democrat Joe Biden the winner, the documents say Rhodes told Oath Keepers to “refuse to accept it and march en-masse on the nation’s Capitol.

Moments later, Samsel and others charged through a barricade, injuring a Capitol Police officer on the other side. But Epps did not appear to join in the violence and his lawyer says “he was never in the Capitol building” — key factors in the Justice Department’s charging decisions. Part of the theory promoted by Trump supporters is based on the FBI’s decision to remove Epps’ face from a Jan.

Blischak told POLITICO that the reason Epps was removed was, in part, because he was no longer an unidentified suspect. The author and FXStreet are not registered investment advisors and nothing in this article is intended to be investment advice. Rather, he called the FBI on Jan. 8 and “explained his position” after a relative informed him that he had been the subject of news reporting related to the riot, Blischak said Blischak said he had no knowledge about why it took several months for the FBI to remove Epps’ face from its “wanted” database.
