She explains that she only followed the call of the outgoing president to demonstrate on Capitol Hill. She says today that she is afraid for her future.
On January 6, the world was in shock when the Washington Capitol was invaded by supporters of Donald Trump. Among these was a woman, proudly sporting a beanie in honor of the outgoing president: Jenna Ryan. ” Life or death doesn’t matter. Let’s go », She said at the time on social networks. Shortly after, she wrote on Twitter: “ We stormed the capital, it was one of the happiest days of my life “. Today, the same activist has radically changed her tone. Apologizing, she begs Donald Trump to grant her his pardon to escape the fallout from the events on Capitol Hill.
An apology that quickly gives way to a defense of the invasion of the Capitol
Jenna Ryan, who lives in North Texas, has therefore embarked on a real communication operation by multiplying interviews in American media such as CBS11 and Fox4. ” I would like to apologize to all the families who are touched by all the negative and I would just like to say that I really love people “, she says.
From her point of view, she did nothing wrong: ” I followed what we were asked to do. He asked us to come. He asked us to be there. So I was doing what we were asked to do ». « I was doing my duty, okay? I was doing my duty to my president. I was like, “Okay, we’re gonna break into the Capitol,” but I wasn’t thinking of guns and knives. For me, it was a demonstration. I didn’t know people were getting killed She adds. As for the fact that it was possible for her to demonstrate peacefully on the plain outside the Capitol, she said nothing. On this point, she persists in saying that entering the Capitol to prevent the nomination of Joe Biden as president represented ” something noble ».
“I think everyone deserves a grace,” she says.
But since these events, Jenna Ryan has seen the police arrive at her home. ” It was a very strange experience to be arrested by the FBI, ”commented the rioter who said to pray for God to get her out of this situation. And this God, in this case, could just as easily bear the name of Donald Trump since she asks for his pardon. “I risk a prison sentence. I think i don’t deserve this », She complains, without being aware of the affront to the temple of American democracy, since she is convinced that Donald Trump has won the elections.
But Jenna Ryan is not asking for a pardon only for her and takes the opportunity to make an even wider appeal. ” From what I understand, everyone who was there is going to be arrested, so I think everyone deserves a grace. », She pleads. As for her personal case, she concludes by saying: “ I feel a little cheated in this situation because I am a real estate agent and it has affected my company. It affected my business. I get slandered all over the internet, all over the world, all over the news when I’m just a normal person “. A normal person but who still enjoys a good lifestyle thanks to his job as a real estate broker. To go to the Capitol, Jenna Ryan had not hesitated to join Washington with a private plane.
