A Texas realty representative who has actually been charged for taking part in the Capitol riot says she went to Washington D.C. due to the fact that a “extremely charming man” welcomed her to join him on a private aircraft to support President Donald Trump.
Jenna Ryan was jailed Friday and charged with disorderly conduct and knowingly going into a limited location or staying in any limiting structure or grounds without lawful authority after an FBI investigation placed her inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6. In an interview with NBC News, Ryan described that she traveled to D.C. after a good-looking stranger extended an invitation on Facebook on January 4.
” He was adorable,” Ryan stated. “And there was another charming lady there, too, and they ended up getting together, darn it.”
The choice was simple for Ryan, who supported Trump’s baseless claims of widespread voter scams and is single. “I always see all these MAGA rallies, so I stated, ‘Heck yeah, let’s go,'” she stated. “I suggest, who wouldn’t go and get on a private jet?”
Ryan shared images to social media on the eve of the riots showing her traveling to D.C. on a personal jet to go to planned pro-Trump protests. Throughout the riot, she livestreamed herself among a mob going into the Capitol building. When she returned to Texas, Ryan shared further images of the event and videos where she might be heard stating, “We’re gon na decrease and storm the Capitol.”
The FBI used the social networks posts as evidence of her participation in the riots and subsequently jailed her.
” Of particular note is an image Ryan posted of herself to her Twitter account, which illustrates Ryan in front of a broken window at the US Capitol building, with the caption ‘Window at The capital[sic] And if the news doesn’t stop lying about us we’re going to follow their studios next,'” authorities said in a criminal complaint.
Ryan asked Trump for a pardon in an interview with CBS11 today, stating “I believe we all deserve a pardon.”
” I’m dealing with a prison sentence,” she stated.
Ryan was the 2nd individual, after Jacob Chansley, the rioter who used horns and fur, to plead for a pardon from Trump.
