Capitol rioter who yelled ‘Bring Nancy Pelosi out!’ is convicted of all charges

On January 6, 2021, Pauline Bauer participated in the riot at the United States Capitol. During the course of the riot, Bauer was recorded on video shouting, “Bring Nancy Pelosi out!” as she and other rioters attempted to break into the Capitol building. This Tuesday, she was convicted of all five charges against her, Law&Crime reports.

“Bring that f—ing b–ch out here now,” Bauer said, according to a Justice Department press release Tuesday. “Bring her out. Bring her out here. We’re coming in if you don’t bring her out here.”

From Law&Crime:

When a Metropolitan Police Department officer tried to push Bauer away from the area he was protecting, she engaged in a confrontation, the DOJ says.

“You back up,” she screamed. “Don’t even try.” Prosecutors say that she then pushed the officer. She was physically removed from the Rotunda by MPD officers in riot gear shortly thereafter.

Prosecutors presented evidence of Bauer’s confrontation with police in the Capitol Rotunda that day, as well as texts and social media postings both on Jan. 6 and in the days following suggesting that the pro-Trump fight was far from over.

“We need to stand firm and strong now more than ever,” she wrote in a text message on Jan. 8.

Bauer was charged with several federal crimes, including violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, obstruction of an official proceeding, and trespassing on restricted grounds.

The court found that Bauer’s actions were not peaceful, but instead were intended to disrupt the peaceful transition of power and to intimidate members of Congress.
