A woman charged with two misdemeanors for storming the U.S. Capitol has asked a federal judge for permission to the leave the country so that she can go on a “work-related bonding retreat” in Mexico. Despite not being allowed to travel due to her charges, Trump supporter Jenny Louise Cudd made the request on Monday (Feb. 1) in the hopes that she can go on her Riviera Maya vacation later this month.
Previous reports stated that the judge had already given Cudd permission to take the vacation; however, a correction from USA Today reports that the judge has not yet denied nor approved the request. On Wednesday (Feb. 3), the federal magistrate’s office said they weren’t sure when the matter would be ruled on.
According to the court filing, Cudd’s attorneys have no objection to her traveling and prosecutors have taken “no position” on the request.
Under the conditions of her pre-trial release, Cudd was banned from traveling to Washington, D.C. unless for a court appearance. She’s also not allowed to leave her home state of Texas or travel internationally without a judge’s consent.
After the Jan. 6 insurrection, Cudd was charged with two misdemeanor offenses, including entering a federal building without permission and engaging in disorderly conduct. The woman admitted to “charging” the Capitol with other Trump supporters in a Facebook video, which was obtained by the FBI.
In the clip, Cudd said she had helped “break down Nancy Pelosi’s office door” with the man who posed for a picture by the House Speaker’s desk. That rioter, identified as Richard Barnett, was previously charged with multiple offenses and denied bail.
Elsewhere in the video, Cudd said she was “proud” of the deadly Capitol attack and would “absolutely do it again.”
