(FiveNation.com)- There are still so many questions that haven’t been answered about the January 6 protests in Washington, D.C. last year.
Who is Ray Epps, the man who was caught on camera encouraging people to go inside of the Capitol Building, and who hasn’t been charged?
Why is there footage showing police officers stepping aside and allowing people to peacefully walk into, and trespass, the Capitol Building?
And why haven’t they caught the man caught on camera planting a pipe bomb near the offices of the Democratic and Republican national committees in Washington, D.C.?
A year later, the man seen planting the bomb is still completely unknown – and reports suggest that the FBI is no closer to learning who was responsible. The footage shows a man wearing a hood and a mask on the night of January 5, 2021, placing items that were later identified as bombs near the offices in D.C.
According to Steve D’Antuono, the lead agent for the FBI in D.C., the devices were disabled by agents before they went off – but that they “could have exploded” and could have caused serious injury or death.
Investigators have reportedly carried out some 900 interviews so far and reviewed footage in more than 39,000 video files in an attempt to find out who was responsible – but they still have nothing.
More footage was released of the man on September 8 last year, which appears to show the hooded man sitting on a bench near the DNC headquarters.
The FBI says that identifying the man “remains a priority” for their office and partners in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, as well as the Capitol Police.
But with so many other questions still up in the air, doesn’t it make you wonder why the people so heavily involved in causing chaos and unrest that day either haven’t been found or haven’t been charged?
