Raymond Epps’ lawyer demands Tucker Carlson, Fox News apologize for Jan. 6 ‘falsehoods’
NEW YORK — The lawyer for a one-time supporter of former President Donald Trump who has been caught up in a Jan. 6 conspiracy theory demanded Thursday that Fox News and host Tucker Carlson retract and apologize for repeated “falsehoods” about the man’s supposed intentions.
The action taken on behalf of Raymond Epps specifically mentions a voting machine company’s pending $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox, an indication that people caught up in political conspiracy theories are fighting back.
The lawyer, Michael Teter, said he gave Fox formal notice of potential litigation. Fox News had no immediate comment.
