According to a new report from Politico, Ray Epps is going to testify to the sham Jan 6th committee on Friday.
He continues to deny he was a federal agent.

Ray Epps, the former Arizona Oath Keeper at the center of pro-Trump conspiracy theories related to Jan. 6., intends to sit for a transcribed interview Friday with the select committee investigating the attack on the Capitol, his attorney said in a phone interview.
Epps, who has become the centerpiece of an unsupported GOP claim that the FBI incited the mob that ransacked the Capitol last year, met with the Jan. 6 select committee in November and told them he had no relationship to the FBI or any other federal law enforcement agency. But the meeting was just a precursor to a more-formal transcribed interview this week, said Eppsâ€™ lawyer John Blischak.
Blischak said he expected more details of Eppsâ€™ involvement to become public soon thereafter.
Epps was also seen in footage just before 1 p.m. on Jan. 6 at the front of a line of Trump supporters who were among the first to breach the Capitol barricades. He whispered something into the ear of Ryan Samsel, who has been charged as one of the first defendants to breach secured Capitol grounds. Moments later, Samsel and others charged through a barricade, injuring a Capitol Police officer on the other side.
After GOP senators started speaking out on Ray Epps the Jan 6th committee was forced to talk about the topic.Â
Then came the giant admission in the new report.
The first meeting was informal which means everything said in that meeting was useless.
