Ryan, who recorded her trip on a private jet to Washington D.C., added that she believed that the presidential election was rigged.
During a Facebook Live video, Ryan plugged her Frisco-based real estate company.
“Y’all know who to hire for your realtor, Jenna Ryan for your realtor,” she said.
“Hire us because we’re fighting for our country.”
During the 21-minute video, Ryan also said, “We are going to [expletive] go in here,” as she arrived at the top of the stairs on the west side of the Capitol building.
“Life or death, it doesn’t matter. Here we go.”
In another video, Ryan reportedly recorded herself while she stood in front of a bathroom mirror and claimed, “We’re gonna go down and storm the Capitol.”
Court documents indicated that footage taken at the riot captured Ryan several times while she inside the Capitol building, which gave authorities enough probable cause to charge her, Dallas Morning News reports.
