Ted Cruz has been outspoken about the FBI’s lack of accountability regarding the events of January 6th on Capitol Hill. The Texas Senator has been pushing the FBI to answer questions about the role they may have had in the Capitol riot, but they have refused to do so.
Cruz recently spoke on his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” about the Capitol riot footage released by Fox News Host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson on his podcast. Cruz discussed the FBI’s potential role in the Capitol riot and allegations that Ray Epps, a prominent Capitol rioter, was an informant for the bureau.
Cruz believes the Biden administration should be fully transparent about the Capitol riot and he has asked the FBI numerous questions about their involvement in the riot, but they have refused to answer. He said, “And yet the Biden DOJ and the Biden FBI remain dug in and adamantly opposed to any accountability the FBI could answer this question.”
In February, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy gave Carlson previously unreleased footage of the Capitol riot and Carlson broadcasted portions of the footage on Monday night. Carlson suggested the new footage upended Democrats’ claims about the Capitol riot being an insurrection against American democracy.
His commentary was criticized by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republican Senators, who disputed his characterization of the riot. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from New York, called for Fox News to take Carlson off the air after he released the footage.
The American people deserve to know the precise level of culpability the federal government bears for January 6.
Yet the Biden DOJ and FBI remain dug in and are adamantly opposed to any accountability!
The FBI could answer this question… #Verdict https://t.co/9TbnXQMPPB

This is just one example of the political corruption and media bias that has been occurring since the Capitol riot and it shows how the FBI and the Biden administration are opposed to any accountability. The American people deserve to know the truth about the Capitol riot and the FBI should answer all questions related to their potential involvement.
