A woman who accepted a Facebook friend's invitation to take a private jet to Washington DC ahead of the January 6th riot has pled guilty to engaging in disruptive or disorderly conduct in a restricted building. Katherine Schwab flew to Washington from her home in Texas along with realtor Jenna Ryan and Jason Hyland.

Schwab had posted messages on social media claiming that "sh*t will go down" and that she wanted to help "stop the steal."

The first of the trio to enter the building, Schwab also admitted to destroying media equipment along with other members of the mob outside the capital.

On another social media post later that day, she posted a video where she stated,

"I went into the f---ing Capitol," Schwab admitted saying in a video recording on the day of the riot, calling police "traitors," "sheep," and "pathetic."

As part of her plea, Schwab further admitted saying, "You want a revolution, the revolution's gonna come... you want a f---ing revolution, it'll happen,"

Schwab flew to Washington with co-defendant Texas Realtor Jenna Ryan and Jason Hyland. Ryan made headlines for a viral tweet in march where she stated, "Sorry, I have blonde hair, white skin, a great job, a great future, and I'm not going to jail." She has also compared public reaction to her actions to the treatment of "Jews in Germany."

Ryan was later sentenced to 60 days in jail.

For his part, Hyland was sentenced to a week in jail earlier this month.

the three are part of more than 850 people arrested in connection with the attacks, with several hundred more participants not yet apprehended.

U.S. District Judge Christopher R. Cooper set Schwab's sentencing hearing for December 9th.
