A Texan Realtor identified as Jenna Ryan has asked for a pardon from President Donald Trump after being arrested by the FBI as one of the Capitol rioters.
Ryan told CBS11 in Dallas that she deserves a full pardon because she thought she was following the President and doing what they were called to do.
The realtor who flew on a private jet to DC is facing a two count charge of knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. But, according to her, she’s been grossly overcharged and feels she did nothing wrong.
She went on to defend her actions by saying the exact opposite of things she said on January 6 as she breached the Capitol. Ryan blamed Trump for “gathering the crowd and rising them up” and because of that, she says she and all the other charged rioters should be let off the hook.
Listen to the words of Jenna Ryan. "They're taking everything" is her justification for #insurrection at the #CapitolRiots. This came from the words of Trump, right-wing propaganda, and Republicans like Ted Cruz. pic.twitter.com/CwgmXtGobg

“I would like a pardon from the President of the United States. I thought I was following my president. I thought I was following what we were called to do. He asked us to fly there. So I was doing was he asked us to do”
Ryan is the second rioter to ask for a pardon from President Trump. Watch the videos below;
