Trump Indicates Pardons For J6 Defendants During Rally

The suggestion ignited a firestorm of controversy over the weekend.

As the cases of the January 6th rioters began to percolate their way through the judicial system, a common theme began to emerge among the defendants.

While some legal teams pushed a defense that centered around the idea that this was all Donald Trump’s fault, (a strategy that has yet to bear fruit), many of those arrested and incarcerated due to their actions on that day have been emphatic in their belief that Donald Trump would have pardoned them before leaving office – some two weeks after the event itself.

Now, with 2024’s presidential election already looming just over the horizon of the 2022 midterms, Donald Trump is suggesting that he may still be considering such a possibility.

Former President Donald Trump on Saturday night held a Save America rally in Texas, where he took shots at several Democrats and teased a 2024 presidential candidacy by saying he will give “pardons” to his supporters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 last year if he runs and wins in 2024.

Trump made the comments in front of thousands of supporters, including Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Texas attorney general Ken Paxton, at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Conroe, Texas.

There was no mistaking Trump’s intent.

“Another thing we’ll do, and so many people have been asking me about it, if I run and if I win, we will treat those people from Jan. 6 fairly,” Trump said, eliciting applause. “We will treat them fairly. And if it requires pardons, we will give them pardons. Because they are being treated so unfairly.”

The former President also had some harsh words for the committee investigating the incident.

“This hasn’t happened to all of the other atrocities that took place recently,” Trump continued, appearing to talk about crime across the United States. “Nothing like this has happened. What that ‘unselect committee’ is doing and what the people are doing who are running those prisons is a disgrace. It’s a disgrace. We will treat them fairly.”

President Trump has not officially stated his intent to run for office in 2024, but he has hinted at the possibility repeatedly.
