A Donald Trump supporter who stormed the US Capitol is in hot water after making a stunning confession while trying to defend her actions. The MAGA rioter said she wasn’t there to “steal things or do damage.” Ironically, she picked the worst possible crime to admit to: We were just there to overthrow the government,” she said, according to a new book by Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender.
Saundra Kiczenski, a 56-year-old from Michigan, told Bender she was “confident” that former President Donald Trump won the 2020 election, according to the book “Frankly, We Did Win This Election,” published earlier this week.
“If someone put a gun to my head and said: ‘Did Donald Trump win, yes or no? And if you’re wrong, we’re going to shoot your head off!’ I would say ‘yes,'” Kiczenski told Bender, according to an excerpt of the book that was published by The Washington Post. “I’m that confident that this stuff is not made up.”
In the book, Bender detailed former Trump’s effort to overturn the election after becoming the first incumbent in decades to fail to win reelection.
“We weren’t there to steal things,” Kiczenski, who stormed the Capitol on January 6, said, according to the book excerpt. “We weren’t there to do damage. We were just there to overthrow the government.”
Kiczenski told Bender that she felt sad and confused when Trump took to Twitter to urge his supporters to go home, Bender wrote. “We were supposed to be fighting until the end,” she said.
