A recently recovered video from a "Stop the Steal" rally in Phoenix after the 2020 election shows Ray Epps appearing to surveil Anthime Gionet, also known as "Baked Alaska."
In the second installment of Truth in Media's series on the "curious case of Ray Epps," host Lara Logan dug deeper into Epps' background as an Oathkeeper in Queen Creek, Arizona, which coincidentally is the very same town Gionet is from.
Gionet/Baked Alaska is a social media influencer and self described sh-t-poster who rose to prominence during Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.
He was one of several people who filmed Epps on the evening of January 5, 2021 outside BLM Plaza in Washington D.C. as Epps told Trump supporters "we need to go into the Capitol!" Gionet is the one who started the "Fed! Fed! Fed!" chant that went viral on social media.
Part One of the series featured a bombshell video clip of Epps whispering to Gionet, "we're here to storm the Capitol," and then adding seriously: "I'm not kidding."
"Somehow, the January 6 Select Committee, with a budget of more than 18 million dollars and over 40 staffers seemed to have missed the most revealing—some would say incriminating—thing Epps said," Logan noted in Part 2.
Unlike Epps, Gionet was arrested about a week after January 6, and was banned from all the major social media platforms, so he was unable to share his story about Epps with the public.
When he was released from prison, Gionet said he and his followers started looking into Epps' background. That's when he said he discovered that Epps "used to be an Oath Keeper" and allegedly "used to be in military intelligence."
Logan asked the influencer if he had been able to confirm that Epps had a background in military intelligence.
Gionet responded in the affirmative.
