Jenny Cudd: "We the Patriots did storm the U.S. Capitol."


MIDLAND, TX -- The story of Jenny Cudd has captivated the attention of West Texas and now the affidavit that led to her arrest has been finally released.

In the five-page document, a Special Agent with the FBI details Cudd and Eliel Rosa's activity on the day of the riot and the days after.

Last Wednesday, the exterior plaza of the U.S. Capitol was also closed to members of the public. The crowd was not lawfully authorized to enter or remain in the building.

Using Cudd's social media posts and security footage from inside the Capitol building, the FBI pieced together a timeline of events. In her Facebook videos, Cudd stated she and Rosa were in attendance for President Trump's event.

"We were on the south lawn listening to the President and before the speech was over we started to head up to the Capitol."

Cudd goes on to explain how the crowd made it inside the building.

"We just pushed, pushed, and pushed, and yelled go and yelled charge. We just pushed and pushed, and we got it."

She also went on to claim the group she was with made its way into the office of the Speaker of the House.

 "We did break down Nancy Pelosi’s office door and somebody stole her gavel and took a picture sitting in the chair flipping off the camera."

In recent days Cudd has claimed the "we" did not refer to her personal involvement.

According to the FBI, Cudd and Rosa entered the U.S. Capitol through Upper West Terrace Door at 2:35 p.m.
At 2:36 p.m. the duo is inside the Rotunda. They are observed remaining inside the Rotunda until approximately 2:39 p.m. and taking pictures.

By 2:39 p.m. they are seen walking across the Statuary Hall area of the U.S. Capitol. They then walked the Statuary Hall Connector and moved off-camera at approximately 2:42 p.m. 

By 2:43 p.m. the duo departs from a large crowd inside the U.S. Capitol in front of the Main Door of the House Chamber and walks east toward the staircase. 

Cudd and Rosa are seen walking past the staircase and past the Upper House Door, going toward the other entrance to the House Chamber. 

Approximately nine minutes later, at 2:54 p.m. Cudd and Rosa are seen departing the U.S. Capitol. 

Cudd then began a live-stream outside of the Willard Hotel in D.C.

“I am sitting in front of the Willard Hotel, as I always do when I am in DC protesting. “I was here today on January 6th when the new revolution started at the Capitol.” 

Later in the video recording, Cudd talks about the evacuation of the federal building by members of Congress as rioters made their way inside.

“They had to evacuate it before we charged the Capitol. I stood outside of the Capitol and I will send photos of that too.” 

She then expressed her pride in being part of the crowd that mounted an illegal siege of the U.S. Capitol.

"F--k yes, I am proud of my actions, I f--king charged the Capitol today with patriots today. Hell, yes I am proud of my actions.”

The affidavit included screenshots of Cudd inside the Capitol from her live stream – which was deleted from her Facebook. Included was the same picture Cudd used for her cover photo on Facebook before she deactivated her account.

The FBI also used Cudd's interviews with local media to further identify her involvement with the events of that day.

"We walked up the steps and walked inside an open door. We the Patriots did storm the U.S. Capitol."

When asked by reporters if she would take the same actions she replied the following.

"Yes, I would absolutely do it again."

Patriot? Or terrorist? That depends on your perspective. Considering the deaths and damage, I lean more towards the latter. The Feds are gonna wipe her smug demeanor away.
