Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) grilled a senior Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) official who refused to say whether the agency participated in the riot at the Capitol building on January 6 last year.

Executive assistant director of the FBI's National Security Branch, Jill Sanborn, refused to say whether any FBI agents participated in the January 6 riot.

Cruz asked Sanborn:

“How many FBI agents or confidential informants actively participated in the events of January 6?”

She responded:

“Sir, I’m sure you can appreciate that I can’t go into the specifics of sources and methods.”

Cruz asked if “any FBI agents or confidential informants” actively participated in the events of January 6th.

“Yes or no?” he asked.

Sanborn responded, “Sir, I can’t answer that.”

When Sanborn was asked whether any FBI agents or confidential informants “commit[ed] crimes of violence on January 6th,” or if FBI agents or informants actively encouraged and incited crimes, she also gave a similar reponse.

WATCH:

She also claimed she didn’t know whether “federal agents or anyone in the service of federal agents actively encouraged violence or criminal conduct.”

“Not to my knowledge, sir,” she told Cruz.

Sanborn’s refusal to dislose information has aroused more suspicion on the FBI’s involvement in the riot.

The suspicion has been focused on a man named Ray Epps, who was caught on video encouraging people to break into the Capitol.

As Neon Nettle reported last year:

Despite numerous videos showing Epps directing people to storm the Capitol building, he has never been indicted in the Jan. 6 riot “investigation.”

Epps has been at the center of allegations that federal agents provoked the riot at the Capitol in an effort to frame President Donald Trump for staging an “insurrection.”

The video evidence, backed by thorough reporting by Revolver News and others, shows Epps on the night before Jan. 6 urging people to go into the Capitol during the joint session of Congress and directing people as the chaos mounted.

Epps, in fact, initially was on the FBI’s Most Wanted list in connection with Jan. 6.

Then, with Revolver News putting a spotlight on Epps, the Arizona man mysteriously disappeared from the list.

Cruz asked Sanborn, “Who is Ray Epps?”

Sanborn said she was “aware of the individual,” but did not have the “specific background to him.”

Cruz asked if Epps was a fed.

“Sir, I cannot answer that question,” Sanford said.

She also refused to say whether Epps urged people to tear down barricades.
