MAGA rioter Jenny Cudd, who infamously boasted on video about breaking into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office, is now demanding that her trial be held in her home state of Texas due to concerns about bias of jurors in Washington D.C.
Reuters legal reporter Jan Wolfe flags a new filing made by Cudd's attorneys that claims D.C. jurors would be far more likely to unjustly "cancel" Cudd because they'd believe that she's a racist.
"There is a social expectation of punishment for anyone accused of being a 'white supremacist,'" the filing states. "In Washington, D.C., people have been readily 'canceled' for being politically conservative and for their public support of Donald Trump."
Given how many people in Washington D.C. are so eager to "cancel" racists, the filing continues, it would be impossible for Cudd to get a fair trial there.
"The D.C. venire is polluted by the city's political culture of 'canceling' those associated with allegations of 'white supremacy,'" the filing argues. "A guilty verdict by a D.C. jury could be readily based on pretrial media affiliation of Ms. Cudd with 'white supremacy.'"
Cudd faces several criminal charges, including corruptly obstructing an official proceeding of Congress; entering and remaining in a restricted building; committing disorderly or disruptive conduct in a restricted building; committing disorderly conduct in a Capitol building; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.
