A Texas woman charged in the capital riot asked the court if she could go to Mexico for a ‘bonding retreat’?


A Texas woman who was indicted on January 6, Capital Riot, filed a motion in federal court seeking permission to travel so that she could participate in a weekend trip to Mexico.

Jenny Cudd, owner of a small business in Midland, Texas, was charged with violent entry or disorderly conduct and entering a prohibited building. According to a criminal complaint filed in January, he had been with Congress within the US Capitol Building since last month as a Trump mob supporter. Five people died as a result of the riots.

Cudd’s attorneys filed a motion Monday in the US District Court for the District of Columbia to allow him to travel despite the allegations.

The motion stated, “Prior to the alleged crime on the issue, Ms. Cudd had planned and prepped preparations for the weekend of February 18, 2021 in Riviera Maya, Mexico, for dates of February 18 with her staff.” “It is a work-related relationship for employees and their spouse.”

Kad is currently on a recognition bond and the terms of his release include check-in with pretrial services and “stay away” from Washington, DC, until court hearings and meetings with his attorneys.

According to the FBI, Kad described part of a mob that made its way into the building on Facebook Live. The criminal complaint against him included a quote from a statement recorded by Cudd, where he said “I charged F — Capital today” and “Hell yes, I’m proud of my actions.”

“We just pushed, pushed and pushed, and shouted ‘go’ and screamed ‘charge.” We just pushed and pushed, and we got it, “Cudd said. He later said,” We broke down the door of Nancy Pelosi’s office. “

The complaint cited a local television interview two days after the incident at the Capitol, where she stated that “we patriots stormed the US Capitol” and she would “absolutely” again.

It appears that the FBI is referring to an interview with Texas NBC affiliate KWES on January 8, where Kud made the same statements.

Kad also told KWES that despite using the word “we” in her Facebook Live, she did not mean to include herself in her statements and was generally using “us”. Kad told KWES that he had not personally broken any law.

“Those things were done by other people, but I wasn’t part of that,” Kad said. “I said in reference to it that ‘we patriots attacked the Capitol,” and some people went to different offices and things like that. “

The attorneys who filed the motion on Kud’s did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News. According to court records, Kad is yet to file charges against him.
