Tom Baked Alaska Gionet, one of the more prominent Trump-supporting figures online of the past four years, attended the storming of the Capitol last week, where he streamed himself and fellow rioters ransacking the offices of lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, on DLive. This week, that decision has come back to bite him and everyone he filmed storming the Capitol.
The FBI has been attempting to track down the rioters over the past week. Last night, the department tweeted out a call for help identifying several people who stormed the Capitol.
The #FBI is asking for the public’s help in identifying individuals who unlawfully entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Visit https://t.co/0JO0XyU8QG to see a new poster with more people, and if you see someone familiar, submit a tip at https://t.co/buMd8vYXzH. pic.twitter.com/sj22HXTWok

Vice pointed out two of the pictures in the FBI’s poster, photographs #74 and #76, come from Gionet’s stream (shown below).
Curiously, despite his confirmed presence at the riot, Gionet has not been arrested. This has led several to wonder if he’s assisting the FBI with their investigation, perhaps as an informant or a plant.
if someone provides information to the feds on illegal activity they participated in but faces zero charges themselves, odds are they’re an asset or informant https://t.co/6kW7rlvTIs
