Jenna Ryan, the Texas realtor who flew to Washington, DC to participate in the Capitol riots is looking for a pardon. She’s gone public with a request from President Donald Trump.
Ryan was seen in photos and videos as a member of the rioting crowd. When she went back to her Texas home, the FBI came calling.
“It was a very strange experience to be arrested by the FBI,” she told CBS 11 outside her home. “They’re very professional and it was a very strange feeling. I have a lot of faith in God and I was just praising him and praying and I was just knowing God would take care of me in this situation.”
The FBI had searched her home not long before they arrested her. Now, Ryan is facing charges for entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. After her arrest, Ryan pled her case in front of cameras.
“I just want people to know I’m a normal person. That I listen to my president who told me to go to the Capitol. That I was displaying my patriotism while I was there and I was just protesting and I wasn’t trying to do anything violent and I didn’t realize there was actually violence,” Ryan said. “I’d just like to apologize for all of the families that are affected by any of the negative environment and I’d just like to say I really love people and I am not a villain that a lot of people would make me out to be, or people think I am because I was a Trump supporter at the Capitol.”
Jenna Ryan And The Pardon Request
It’s the Trump supporter part that Ryan hopes will help her. She posted a recent video where she talked about the aftermath. Ryan said she was proud to be arrested by the FBI.
“I feel that I did something noble & I’m proud of being there. I have no shame to be there.” She added that she felt persecuted and “misjudged.”
Ryan also officially asked Donald Trump for a pardon. Her rationale was that she was showing her support for the president.

“I’m hoping @JennaRyanRealty receives the maximum sentence allowed by law,” one Twitter user wrote.
“She deserves a pardon? Wow! Nope!” Another user wrote.
One other user also thought her request was ridiculous. They compared her to other people who help criminals commit crimes.
Jenna Ryan – yes, you’ll be going to Prison because you trusted Trump** – but you’re not alone,” they wrote. “The Manson Girls ALSO got swindled by a career Conman and went to Prison for Life for their crimes!” The poster also ended the tweet by saying “decisions have consequences.”
