(Natural News) Former intelligence officer Jeffrey Prather branded the January 21 interview of Ray Epps by the special House committee investigating last year’s Capitol riot as “political theater.”
“He [Epps] is actually before the committee today, but don’t expect anything from that. This is a show again,” said Prather during the January 21 episode of “Prather Point” on Brighteon.TV. “They’re giving you a show and then when they film Congress, it’s a show of actors filming actors. So nothing is going to come of this – it is unimportant.”
Epps, a resident of Queen Creek, Arizona, was first identified days after the riot when videos emerged on social media showing him at a police barricade when it was first breached. He was seen whispering something to Ryan Samsel, who, moments later, charged through a barricade with several others. Samsel has been charged as one of the first to breach secured Captiol grounds.
Photos showing Epps outside the Capitol on January 6 were also prominently posted on a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) website seeking the public’s help in identifying people who may have entered the Capitol on that day. Those images were removed several months later, and Epps was not among the more than 700 people facing criminal charges related to the January 6 incident.
His attorney, John Blischak, confirmed that they were set for a transcribed interview over Zoom on January 21 with the House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol incident.
“I would rather wait until that interview was completed before disclosing anything. I have nothing otherwise to hide. It’s nothing I’m worried about,” Blischak said.
Epps part of government plot to stage Capitol riot and pin blame on Trump supporters
Many believe that Epps is part of a secret government plot to stage the January 6 riot at the Capitol and blame it on supporters of then-President Donald Trump. “Epps was certainly a confidential source and helped plan all of that along with John Sullivan and many others, and nothing will come of that. This is just more of a show or a political theater,” said Prather.
Sullivan was a participant in the Capitol incident. He captured the events on video while posing as a journalist.
Two Republican senators recently questioned top officials of the Department of Justice and the FBI testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee about whether Epps was actually a U.S. government informant who incited rioting at the Capitol.

When asked by the media about his client’s involvement on the January 6 incident, Blischak said Epps was “merely present” that day. “He did not have any agenda to go into the Capitol or cause any violence whatsoever,” he said.
Blischak noted that the purpose of the January 21 interview was to confirm that Epps was telling the truth.
But the special House committee investigating the Capitol incident appeared to have made up its mind already even before the interview. It tweeted: “Epps informed us that he was not employed by, working with, or acting at the direction of any law enforcement agency on Jan 5th or 6th or at any other time, and that he has never been an informant for the FBI or any other law enforcement agency.”
For Prather, the interview serves another purpose for the enemies.
“I would call this [interview] an information influence operation. And Congress, having been bribed and extorted easily because of their ambitions, are now being taught how to do information influence operations,” Prather said, noting that the people in Congress have always prioritized their own personal gains above anything.
The Brighteon.TV host also accused Blischak of being an “informal handler” of Epps.
“It’s very interesting because he [Blischak] is an ex-Maricopa FBI agent. And he says that Epps already met informally with the January 6 committee in November. So they probably have met other times as well. They’ve already talked behind closed doors – that’s when things really happened. This will be a show.” (Related: “Let’s Talk America” discusses FBI asset Ray Epps and his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol siege – Brighteon.TV.)
