Trump Pledges to Pardon Jan. 6 Participants if Reelected

Former President Donald Trump said that he would consider pardoning those charged in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol, saying he would treat them “fairly” if he were reelected.

“If I run and if I win, we will treat those people from Jan. 6 fairly,” Trump said at a rally in Conroe, Texas.

“And if it requires pardons, we will give them pardons because they are being treated so unfairly.”

According to a report from the Justice Department, more than 725 people have been arrested on charges stemming from the incident.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called Trump’s remarks “inappropriate.”

“I think it’s inappropriate. … I don’t want to do anything that would make this more likely in the future,” Graham told CBS’s Margaret Brennan during an appearance on Face The Nation.

“When Kamala Harris and her associates … raised money to bail out the rioters who hit cops in the head and burned down stores, I didn’t like that either. So I don’t want to do anything, from raising bail to pardoning people who take the law in their own hands, because it will make violence more likely.”

During his speech, Trump also called for mass protests if prosecutors “do anything wrong or illegal” while investigating him and his business practices.

“If these radical, vicious racist prosecutors do anything wrong or illegal, I hope we are going to have in this country the biggest protest we have ever had … in Washington, D.C, in New York, in Atlanta and elsewhere because our country and our elections are corrupt,” Trump said.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who serves on the House select committee investigating Jan. 6, criticized Trump’s comments.

“Trump uses language he knows caused the Jan 6 violence; suggests he’d pardon the Jan 6 defendants, some of whom have been charged with seditious conspiracy; threatens prosecutors; and admits he was attempting to overturn the election,” she tweeted, adding: “He’d do it all again if given the chance.”

    MY GOODNESS: Nice to hear more of the same Promises Made, Promises Kept. When President Trump is elected for the third time, DC (establishment RINOs, Dims, Bureaucrats, MSM) will re-do everything they did his first time, and I will re-member everything they did also. I only wonder what their newest subterfuges will be to evade an open, functioning, effective, Constitutional Government? If I could post this on politico, I think we’d see indications, but not the final deceptionS.

    Lindsey Graham talks of violence on that day…? What violence was that ! Compared to the liberals violence for years , which has gone by the wayside , what did any of these people do ? The police showed the people in ! Removed the barricades! Any strange things that happen that day , was done by paid actors that have never been identified !

  4. Major Kong says:

    Do people actually listen to or care about what Graham has to say?

    why would he need to be re-elected? Joe is not a legal sitting President. He was never legally voted in or inaugurated. Joe Biden and his administration are JACKALS and JACKASSES. Trump knows this and he too, is a freemason, he’s of the Scottish Rite. known to be 33rd level killers of man. So what more do they want to try to do to us. Make Trump President so he can gather all the Christians for slaughter? He sure is tryin to come across like he’s a good man, there is plenty to doubt. What you don’t see is what will kill you(ask the freemason killers, they know), so ya better self-educate and pray your ass off… or lose!
