Less than two weeks ago, the world was left stunned when numerous rioters stormed the Capitol Building in Washington DC.
Countless people were injured, numerous others died as a result of injuries sustained in the riot, and dozens have been arrested and charged following the major incident.
The latest arrest is that of a Texan realtor who took a private jet to the protest saying she was following the orders of her president, Donald Trump.
Now the woman, identified as Jenna Ryan, has been arrested by the FBI and charged.
Following the new she has pleaded for a pardon, saying she deserves one.
Sicknick died at 9:30 p.m. Thursday evening, police said.
Speaking over the weekend, Jenna said:
We all deserve a pardon.
I’m facing a prison sentence. I think I do not deserve that.
I would ask the president of the United States to give me a pardon.
I didn’t see this until now: Dallas area realtor & life Coach Jenna Ryan declared “we are armed and dangerous”. She’s since been arrested by the FBI and is now asking President Trump for a pardon, saying he’s the reason they went there to “stop the steal” pic.twitter.com/vkNivhKj7O— David Begnaud (@DavidBegnaud) January 16, 2021
Five people have since been confirmed dead after protesters stormed the Capitol building in Washington DC.
One woman was shot in the neck by police as she and other protesters tried to storm a barricaded door with armed police on the other side.
One police officer collapsed and died after sustaining injuries.
Three more died following what police described as ‘medical emergencies’. And another police officer took his own life following the riot – with the department saying it was a direct result of the riot.
Many other protesters and police officers were injured during the invasion which was labelled a siege by Joe Biden.
And as for Trump, he has been impeached for the second time for ‘inciting’ the riot.
I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2021
Dozens of Trump supporters stormed the building and began rioting.
Footage shows one woman being rushed away on a stretcher by paramedics.
The riot began when thousands of Trump supporters gathered in DC to have one last stand for the president.
But despite a huge police presence, many of them broke through the barricade and entered the Capitol building.
They did so as lawmakers inside were debating the certification of the presidential election.
Those protesting and rioting believe Trump won the election and that it was stolen from him.
