WATCH: “Baked Alaska” Says God Told Him To Blow January 6th Plea Deal

Only a few January 6th defendants — the folks accused of participating in mob violence at the U.S. Capitol Building — have taken their cases to trial, with many more accepting plea deals, which may include consenting to cooperate with investigators seeking more information about other participants or planners of the attack. However, the right to a trial has been emphasized, and when a defendant backs out of a plea deal, a trial is on the agenda.

Anthime Joseph Gionet, also known as “Baked Alaska,” is a livestreamer who was set to plead guilty Wednesday to relatively minor charges, compared to some of his confederates. As previously reported, he had a sudden change of heart in court, and insisted he was innocent instead.

Apparently, his fans think that was a foolish move (if well within his legal rights as a defendant), and he felt the need to explain.

He says he was planning to take the plea, until “God just put it on [his] heart to speak the truth.”

“I care about the truth. I care about God’s truth. I care about integrity. I care about values…God filled me with the holy spirit. I was just speaking exactly what God told me to say.”

He was granted a period of 60 days in which he can still take the plea deal if he chooses, or he’ll face trial in March 2023.
