Ted Cruz questioned the FBI Tuesday about their level of involvement with the riots that occurred at the Capitol on January 6 of last year.
Jill Sanborn is the representative of the FBI in this case and her answers to these questions from the senator are troubling, to say the least.
Watch as Cruz lays out the case that certain individuals at the January 6 riots were planted by the feds to instigate, while the FBI does nothing to deny these claims.
This is where the January 6th committee needs to be focused. What level of involvement did the feds have in causing this riot?
Cruz: Did any FBI agents or confidential informants actively participate in the events of January 6th, yes or no?
Sanborn Sir, I can't answer that.
Cruz: Did any FBI agents or confidential informants commit crimes of violence on January 6th?
Sanborn: I can't answer that sir.
Cruz: Did any FBI agents or FBI informants actively encourage and incite crimes of violence on January 6th?
Sanborn: Sir, I can't answer that.
I'm sorry, what?
The FBI cannot answer whether or not any of their agents or informants were on the ground actively engaging in and encouraging the January 6th riots?
They can't even lie about it and deny it?
What is happening here?
Cruz goes on to lay out the case of Ray Epps.
The day before the riots, Ray Epps started to say to a crowd of people they needed to get into The Capitol the next day. The people there so clearly believed that he was an FBI agent and Federal plant that they chased him away chanting: "Fed! Fed! Fed!"
They obviously thought Epps was a government agent trying to trick them into invading The Capitol.
The FBI official in the hearing says she knows of Ray Epps but didn't know any details.
Cruz: Ms. Sanborn, was Ray Epps a Fed?
Sanborn: Sir, I cannot answer that question.
Why can't she answer that question? If the answer is no, she would just say no, right? What's the deal with the shiftiness?
Obviously, the FBI has something to hide.
Cruz explains how Epps was there outside the Capitol, appearing to whisper instructions to other "rioters" before they tore down the barricades to the Capitol.
Cruz: Did Mr. Epps urge them to tear down the barricades?
Sanborn: Similar to the other answers, I cannot answer that.
Then the FBI posted a list of suspects from January 6th which included Ray Epps. Then, later on, for no explained reason, the FBI removed Epps from the list.
Cruz is insinuating that the FBI knows who Epps is and he's working on their side, so he's no longer a person of interest. He wasn't charged and there was no explanation as to why he was "let off the hook."
What the FBI has done in regards to Epps is shady as heck.
Cruz: Did federal agents or those in service of federal agents actively encourage violent and criminal conduct on January 6th?
Sanborn: Not to my knowledge, sir.
This is the closest the FBI gets to denying that they encouraged the riot. And all Jill Sanborn can muster to say is "not to my knowledge"?
That means it still remains well within the realm of possibility that the FBI had something to do with the January 6th riot.
And before you say it's a conspiracy theory, do you remember when the FBI prevented the kidnap of the Michigan governor? Yeah, and it ended up that they were the ones behind the plot the whole time??
It is not beyond the realm of possibility that the FBI hatched the entire January 6th plan themselves, riled up a crowd of ignorant Trump supporters to go along with it, and helped them force their way into the capitol while disguised as MAGA guys.
They have a lot of explaining to do!
