Report: FBI Inexplicably Removed Armed Capitol Rioters from Most Wanted List

According to a report from the Washington Examiner, the FBI won’t explain why three individuals who participated in the January 6 Capitol riot disappeared from its Capitol Violence Most Wanted list.

One of the unidentified men, dubbed #GingerGun by online sleuths, wore an earpiece and carried what appeared to be a concealed handgun on his left hip. The Examiner claims he was pictured on the FBI’s list for more than five months before being removed without explanation on the same day the New York Times reported that an FBI informant was at the Capitol on the day of the incident.

Video footage showed another unidentified man, dubbed #HarleyJacketBatonMan, beating police officers with a baton. He was on the FBI’s list for assaulting a federal law enforcement officer before the agency inexplicably removed him in late February — just a few weeks after adding him.

Footage showed the third man, Ray Epps, urging supporters of then-President Donald Trump to breach the Capitol to prevent the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory.

The FBI did not arrest or charge Epps, and they removed him from their list on July 1, 2021. The move “fueled speculation from a member of the House Judiciary Committee that Epps may have agitated people to storm the Capitol at the behest of the FBI.”

Footage from January 5 shows Epps, a former president of the Arizona Oath Keepers militia group, urging a crowd of Trump supporters to “go into the Capitol” the next day, spurring responses from the crowd alleging that he was a federal plant.

According to the Washington Examiner, as Trump spoke outside the White House the next day, Epps corralled people toward the Capitol. “He was also part of the first group of rioters to break through a police barrier on Capitol grounds.”

According to the report:

Only 13 suspects have been removed from the FBI's Capitol Violence Most Wanted list, launched two days after the riot to solicit help from the public in identifying rioters. Hundreds of individuals on the list have been identified, but they remain on the list with a notice they have been arrested.

Online sleuths identified removed suspects 311 and 312 as photojournalists. Two removed suspects were minors. Removed suspect 236 identified herself as a 17-year-old girl to a reporter during the riot, and online sleuths identified removed suspect 310 as a minor. Removed suspect 257 was identified as Andrew Taake of Texas, who was arrested and charged by federal authorities in July. Removed suspects 36, 37, 197, and 198 remain on the list under different numbers.

Removed suspect 171 was identified as Evan Neumann of California, who is currently listed on another FBI most wanted list. Neumann allegedly assaulted police officers with a metal barricade during the riot. He fled the country in February and is currently believed to be in Belarus, according to the FBI notice. Neumann was indicted on Dec. 10 on 14 counts.

During an October hearing, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) presented Attorney General Merrick Garland with video footage of Epps encouraging people to enter the Capitol on January 5 and 6. Massie said Garland “refused to comment on how many agents or assets of the federal government were present in the crowd on [January 5 and 6] and how many entered the Capitol.”

    The only disturbances and crimes committed at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C, on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021 were planned, staged and carried out by the seditious DNC/FBI/DC Capitol Police/ANTIFA crisis actors.

  2. CharlieSeattle says:

    Watch this video.


    The black security man was not charged because he shot a blank!No blood spatter on wall behind Babbitt after she falls.
    No blood pool on the floor after she is moved 8 inches.
    Fake blood only appears after a man presses her neck and it is very, very, small when she is lifted.

    Babbitt was a ‘useful idiot’ likely picked at random to be used in a staged ‘False Flag’ FBI Black Op. by DNC/FBI crisis actors!Babbitt, if really dead, was killed or died later.
    “”A body”” was cremated 2 days later to cover up the true cause of death, and identity!

    Poor Ashli forgot to submit her resume before she tried to crawl through …NOT a broken window, but a pop out clear plastic panel, in a building she was …NOT supposed to be in, wearing what anyone would logically assume is a …BOMB in a backpack!

    1. Dan says:

      Because logically assuming that everyone wearing a backpack has a bomb stuffed in it. Makes total sense.

  4. Carabec says:

    It seems clear that the three men described were FBI Agents placed to incite a riot!

    1. Diane says:

      And Carabec, how about the black BLM guy shown in a video who admitted openly he was there to instigate?

  5. Nick Newton says:

    I do believe nearly every American knows the FBI is against any law to protect American citizens providing they are Democrats, because they are controlled by Pelosi and Biden the corrupt! They are not a law enforcement agency but in fact have developed into a bunch of POLITICAL THUGS being told what to do by the three greatest enemies to America. Obama, Biden And the Clintons! They all at this moment have a blanket protection from the DOJ, FBI, CIA, and are protected fully against any claims of unlawful actions against any law or order. I only hope when the change of horses happens they will all be held accountable for all their corrupt actions!
