SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – A far-right social media personality who calls himself “Baked Alaska” has been arrested in connection with the riots Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol.

Tim Gionet livestreamed a 27-minute video inside the Capitol with the mob, a video used by the FBI to identify dozens of suspects.

The video shows Gionet using a Capitol phone and pretending to make a call to the Senate.

“Hello, U.S. Senate.  Yes, we have a fraudulent election I would like to report.  Yea, we need to get our boy Donald J. Trump into office,” Gionet says in the video.

He’s also heard shouting “Patriots are in control,” “1776, baby,” F*** globalists,” and “Let’s go.”

At one point in the video he tells a police officer,”You’re a f****ng oathbreaker,” and accuses the officer of breaking his oath to the Constitution.

Gionet was arrested by the FBI Friday in Houston.
