Newly surfaced footage allegedly shows Ray Epps rallying people to go into the Capitol building the night before the riot in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021.
Truth in Media released previously unseen video clips of Epps reportedly urging supporters of former President Donald Trump to go “into the Capitol.”
Footage shows Epps purportedly instructing the crowd, “I’m gonna put it out there – I’m probably going to go to jail for it, okay – tomorrow, we need to into the Capitol! Into the Capitol!”

Video shows some people at the impromptu “Stop the Steal” rally reacting by saying, “No!” Others booed the idea of storming the Capitol, and some are heard chanting: “Fed! Fed! Fed! Fed!”
Epps appears to respond by ordering the crowd to infiltrate the Capitol building “peacefully.”
The eye-opening footage was taken by Anthime “Tim” Gionet – best known as right-wing influencer Baked Alaska.

Last January, the Trump-supporting livestreamer was sentenced to 60 days in prison after pleading guilty to a single misdemeanor count of parading, demonstrating, or picketing inside a Capitol building.
Epps is apparently seen on video telling Gionet, “In fact tomorrow – I don’t even like to say it because I’ll be arrested – we need to go in to the Capitol.”
Baked Alaska reacts by telling other Trump supporters, “I didn’t see that coming.”
Gionet walks away from Epps.
However, Epps interacts with Gionet 10 minutes later.
The night before the Capitol riot, Baked Alaska’s livestream video appears to show Epps leaning in to whisper to Gionet, “We’re not here to fight man. We’re here to storm the Capitol.”
Baked Alaska laughs off the idea.
Epps allegedly replies, “I’m not kidding.”
Gionet then dismisses Epps, “Alright, have a good night, be safe. Be safe brother.
In September, Epps pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor charge of disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted area.
Epps has consistently denied that he is an informant or a federal agent – including during testimony before the Jan. 6 House select committee and in a “60 Minutes” interview.
Why was Ray Epps treated as victim by the same people who condemned almost everyone around him as a threat?
