(NYTimes)The man -- a two-time Trump voter named Ray Epps -- took part in demonstrations in Washington that day and the night before. He was captured on camera urging a crowd to march with him and enter the Capitol. But at other points, he pleads for calm once it becomes clear the situation is turning violent.

Federal prosecutors have not charged Mr. Epps with a crime, focusing instead on the more than 1,000 other demonstrators who acted violently or were trespassing in the Capitol. The Justice Department's sprawling investigation into the attack remains open, however, and Mr. Epps could still be indicted.

Yet for more than 18 months, Mr. Carlson insisted that the lack of charges against Mr. Epps could mean only one thing: that he was being protected because he was a secret government agent.

Mr. Epps was in the Marine Corps but said in his deposition before the Jan. 6 committee that he had otherwise never worked on behalf of any government agency. He and his wife, Robyn, have fled Arizona and are in hiding in another state, having sold their wedding venue business and ranch after receiving death threats from people who appeared to believe the conspiracy theory.

Now lawyers representing Mr. Epps and his wife are proceeding with plans to sue Fox News for defamation.

    I might believe Mr. Epps tale if it weren't for well known government agents the NYT publishing the cover story for him. 🧐

    That pending defamation lawsuit was just filed.

    During the hearing today, one of the Qanon Republicans angrily demanded to know why the FBI had not arrested Ray Epps. The Texas representative clearly believed that Epps was an FBI plant who provoked the January 6th riot. Wray responded that the accusation was "ludicrous and is a disservice to our brave, hardworking dedicated men and women".

    Pro-Trump protester Ray Epps files defamation suit against Fox News
    Ray Epps, a Trump supporter who became the focus of right-wing conspiracy theories after he protested in Washington on Jan. 6, has filed a defamation lawsuit against Fox News and former host Tucker Carlson for claiming he was an undercover FBI agent who helped provoke the riot at the Capitol.

    In his lawsuit, Epps accuses Fox News of telling a “fantastical story” that he acted as a government-sponsored instigator of the violence that ensued as Congress sought to count the electoral votes to certify Joe Biden's victory.
