GOP Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) showed AG Merrick Garland a video of a man yelling for Trump supporters to enter the US Capitol.
The man is clearly trying to incite others to go into the US Capitol.
At the time, he is even called out as a “Fed” by at least one person in the crowd.
I just played this video for AG Merrick Garland. He refused to comment on how many agents or assets of the federal government were present in the crowd on Jan 5th and 6th and how many entered the Capitol. pic.twitter.com/lvd9n4mMHK

The man was identified as Ray Epps.
A Queen Creek man who acknowledges he was in Washington, D.C., for last week’s rally by President Donald Trump also appears to be shown in videos taken the night before talking about plans to go inside the U.S. Capitol.
In one video that has been widely viewed on Twitter, he can be heard saying, “I don’t even like to say it because I’ll be arrested. I’ll say it. We need to go into the Capitol.”
Ray Epps told The Arizona Republic in a brief telephone interview Monday that he had traveled to the capital for the event, and that he had been advised by an attorney not to speak about it.
“I think the truth needs to get out,” he said.
He is in the video below:
IMPORTANT: this is exact moment the siege of the Capitol building began as the two men in front ripped down a preliminary barrier & rushed officers who were behind a 2nd barrier
They then encouraged others to follow their lead. Officers appeared to be taken completely off guard pic.twitter.com/LE0a01PXBi

Massie has now added this tweet:
Make no mistake: Had there been no DOJ/FBI assets in the crowd or in the Capitol on January 5th and 6th, 2020, AG Merrick Garland would have said so. Instead, he refused to answer my question. The DOJ could put out a statement tomorrow, but they won’t. What does that tell you? https://t.co/KIrnI4NTzv

Will the DOJ put out a press release ensuring Americans that informants played no part in Jan 6th?
