Cruz criticizes FBI ‘arrogance’ for stoning the wall for his January 6 question: ‘Did they actively request illegal behavior?’

Late. Ted Cruz, R-TX, blew up the FBI’s lack of transparency after a senior official avoided his questions on Jan. 6 during a Senate hearing Tuesday.

“Many Americans are concerned that the federal government was deliberately encouraging illegal and violent behavior on January 6.… Did federal agents or those who were in the service of federal agents encourage active violent and criminal behavior on January 6?”

“I do not know, sir,” said Jill Sanborn, deputy director of the FBI’s National Security Department.

Fox News host Sean Hannity said Cruz’s interrogation should not have been avoided.

“Why could there not be a general denial that they are not who we are [the FBI] is it? “he asked.” Is that not how we act? “

“It should be very easy for the FBI to say no. No federal agents were involved in violent crimes,” Cruz told Hannity. “No, no federal agents actively encouraged, encouraged others to commit violent crimes. If they did their job, it would be very easy questions to answer. They refused to answer them.”

The FBI refuses to be held accountable for many things, Cruz said, adding that its agents are “arrogant”.

“Unfortunately, under Joe Biden, we have seen an incredible party-political Justice Department,” Cruz said. “And both the Department of Justice and the FBI have an arrogance that they are not accountable to anyone that they can stonewall.”

Cruz discussed the possibility of a theory put forward by some that there were FBI agents on the Capitol who encouraged riots. One of the main characters around this theory is Ray Epps, who has denied that he was affiliated with the FBI or working for a law enforcement agency.

“Was Ray Epps fed?” asked Cruz Sanborn at the Senate hearing.


“Lord, I can not answer that question,” Sanborn replied.

“There have been a lot of videos online by Ray Epps … There are videos of him calling on the audience and saying, ‘We should go to the Capitol, but not just go to the Capitol, we should go to the Capitol.’ In other words, to encourage them to break the law, “Cruz told Hannity. “And he keeps saying, ‘In the Capitol, in the Capitol.’ And the whole crowd starts singing, ‘Fed, Fed, Fed, Fed.’ It’s a very confusing and disturbing video.The next day, January 6, there is a video of him talking to one of the people at that meeting and whispering in his ear.Five seconds later that person pushes down barricades – the natural conclusion that this person urged him to break the law. “

“And so I asked the FBI … is Mr. Epps, an agent of the FBI, it is [he an] FBI informant? And she stoned, refusing to answer. We know that the FBI put him on the list of people they wanted information about, and then he magically disappeared. There needs to be transparency and the Biden administration needs to sweep up. Is this a politicized law enforcement operation targeting the president’s enemies? And did they actively encourage illegal behavior? “
