Ray Epps Told Nephew He ‘Orchestrated’ January 6

Ray Epps, a person involved in the events of January 6, 2021, when a mob of supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol, told his nephew that he "orchestrated" what happened that day.

This assertion was made in a transcript released by the House January 6 Committee. Epps claimed to investigators that his actions had nothing to do with inciting the riot and that he was actually trying to prevent violence.

Epps, who can be seen in video footage encouraging people to march on the Capitol, also denied that he was acting on behalf of any government agency while in Washington, D.C. Epps' nephew, Dalin, texted him on the morning of January 6 asking him to be safe, and Epps responded later in the day by claiming to have been "in the front" and to have "orchestrated" the events.

Epps stated that he used the wrong word and that he had actually been trying to organize a "peaceful demonstration" about the election, but that the gathering had been "hijacked" by people causing trouble. Epps said he had traveled to Washington, D.C. to be with his son, who was also in the city, and that he had tried to de-escalate clashes between demonstrators and law enforcement. 

He also claimed that he thought the Capitol was open to the public on the day of the riot, but that he saw barricades outside the building.
