Livestreamer Anthime “Baked Alaska” Gionet revealed last Saturday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation forcibly confiscated his Pit Viper sunglasses, camouflage jacket, and all of his electronic devices earlier this year.
During his first livestream since being arrested for participating in a peaceful election integrity protest at the Capitol on January 6, Baked Alaska stated, “We gotta work some kinks out, we’re on a new platform, we’re on a new phone, the feds literally took all my phones, okay?”
“The FBI took all my phones,” the livestreamer continued. “FBI took three of my phones, they took my laptop, my Apple watch, my Pit Vipers, my camo jacket . . . but hey, we’re gonna fix it, okay? It’s the first stream back, it’s not scripted, we’re gonna figure it out. So thank you for your patience, YOBA (Year Of Baked Alaska), let’s go.”
It remains unclear why the federal agents chose to confiscate Baked Alaska’s personal items of clothing.
As National File previously reported, Baked Alaska was among many Trump supporters singled out and arrested in connection with the mostly peaceful election integrity protest on January 6:
Tim Gionet, known online as Baked Alaska, was arrested today for the alleged actions he took while participating in the mostly peaceful Capitol Hill protest on January 6.
Gionet, who has become an ardent Trump supporter since originally supporting Bernie Sanders in 2016, and who appeared at virtually every Stop The Steal event, was arrested today for his alleged participation in the January 6 Capitol Hill protest, continuously called a riot by those in the mainstream media.
According to the Associated Press, Gionet “was arrested by federal agents in Houston on Saturday, according to the official, who was not authorized to discuss the matter before the public release of a criminal complaint and spoke on condition of anonymity.”
They add, “Gionet faces charges of violent and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and knowingly entering a restricted building without lawful authority, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.”
