Another Jan 6th insurrectionist reconfirms my cynical view of human behavior, specifically that most villains who are caught are only “sorry” that they got caught in a crime. We have another lovely example of a insurrectionist who pleaded guilty and got off with no jail time stating she regrets the plea deal with the government. In fact, she’s still a huge Trump fan and believes the 2020 Election was stolen from Trump.
WASHINGTON — A Beverly Hills cosmetologist who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, in support of the man she calls "Trumpy Bear," recently told fellow supporters that she only pleaded guilty "to stay out of jail," that she didn't read the plea deal she signed, and that she doesn't think Capitol defendants will get locked away for a long time because former President Donald Trump is "coming back."
Gina Bisignano is a Trump supporter who wore a Louis Vuitton sweater as she used a bullhorn to call for “strong, angry patriots” in the mob to help fight police at the Capitol. “We the people are not going to take it anymore!” Bisignano said on the bullhorn. “You are not going to take away our Trumpy Bear! You are not going to take away our votes!”
In the plea deal she finalized under seal in August, Bisignano admitted that she had videoed herself storming the Capitol and saying she was going to “break into Congress,” encouraged other rioters to “break the window,” and then urged rioters to invade the Capitol through the broken window. Under the plea deal, Bisignano was supposed to cooperate with the government, and could receive credit at sentencing for demonstrating acceptance of responsibility.
But in a recording of a recent voice chat she had with supporters of Jan. 6 defendants, obtained by NBC News, Bisignano didn't exactly strike a conciliatory tone. Bisignano confirmed that it is her on the recording.
Here is what she said on that recent voice chat:
In her chat with supporters, Bisignano said she didn’t know why she did what she did, but that the pro-Trump mob was fueled by “very righteous anger.” Bisignano claimed in the recording that police at the U.S. Capitol "attacked" the mob of Trump supporters. She claimed that police actions — after the mob broke through barricades and gave a female U.S. Capitol Police officer a concussion — "riled everybody up." And she suggested that the apology she gave to a judge during her guilty plea wasn't exactly full-hearted.
"I said, 'Your Honor, I'm sorry for going into the Capitol,'" Bisignano told supporters after her guilty plea. "I said 'Your honor, I apologize.' He goes 'Thank you. Thank you.' I said 'You're welcome.' But I didn't say what I'm sorry for. I'm sorry for being in a federal building and getting in trouble. But I believe what I believe, and everybody knows that."
Bisignano in the recording called Judge Carl Nichols “a nice judge,” and said that she hoped he'd look favorably upon her cooperation. But she encouraged another Jan. 6 defendant on the call not to take a plea deal, and indicated she had regrets about her own plea.
"If you don't have to do it, if you could hold it out, don't do it. I wish I didn't. Just wait it out, wait it out," she said. "I wish that I was stronger, because I was so weak when I signed it."
"If I could do it again," Bisignano said of signing a plea deal, "I wouldn't."
“Yeah, give me something to sign. I will not read it. I’m just signing it to stay out of jail. And I am not sorry about my part in the violence of Jan 6th. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah!”
She’s stupid and delusional enough to believe that Trump will return to power and pardon them all.
