Where are we going with this!?
Let's dial down on some of the Jan. 6th aftermath realities.
I stated the day after Jan. 6th went down at the Capitol: "If you were violent and rushed the Capitol building and entered it you did great harm to the Conservative movement and the country."
And I remain having that opinion and there are legal prices to pay for such foolish actions. BUT.
But what? "An explosive report has revealed the Trump-hating J6 Committee secretly deleted over 100 potentially critical pieces of evidence right before the GOP was set to take over the House of Representatives after their narrow 2022 win."
And then we have this: The first 10 people arrested and charged, and all of these Jan 6th riot participants received significant jail time. 27 months, 18 years, 17 years, 30 months, 10 months. And yet we have this man, Ray Epps, who I clearly remember seeing on video the day before rabble rousing the crowd in Washington DC and plainly stating that "We have to go in, into the Capitol!". And then on the 6th I believe saw video of him rushing the barricades and I believe he even was one of the people whose hands were on and pushing a gigantic sign into the line of officers while rushing the building.

Ray Epps was on the FBI's most wanted list regarding the Jan. 6th event for a short while but was soon removed from that list. Why and how does that happen?
And in spite of what appears to be his in-kind directions and actions as those people listed below who were arrested, charged with similar crimes, and jailed. But, Ray Epps was not.
Ray Epps was eventually arrested and charged many, many months after Jan. 6th and it appears that that was done because the DOJ was forced to do so given the glaring inequities.
"Epps was charged with one count of disorderly or disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds, according to court documents.". What makes the difference here? The DOJ for whatever reason has chosen to not treat Mr. Epps as they treated hundreds of others who did exactly the same or less than he on the two days, let alone the one day.
Now you Objectively put together what is actually going on here.
Just ten of the hundreds of Jan. 6th offenders are listed below who ALL received jail time for similar actions as Ray Epps. But no jail for Ray Epps. How and why does that happen? That does not happen by accident.
Kevin Louis Galetto, 63, of Merritt Island, Florida, was sentenced to 27 months in prison, 24 months of supervised release, and ordered to pay $2,000 after pleading guilty to civil disorder and assault of a federal officer.

He was found guilty of a number of charges, including obstructing an official proceeding, and disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building.
Why isn't Ray Epps in jail right now? There are reasons for everything at this level of political play.
