Trump talks pardons for Jan. 6 defendants in Faith & Freedom speech IF he is elected president again

Former President Donald J. Trump suggested that he could issue pardons for supporters that were caught up in the January 6. 2021 chaos at the U.S. Capitol, were hunted down like dogs and had their lives destroyed by vengeful Democrats wielding the power of the federal government’s law enforcement apparatus.

Trump made his remarks during a speech at the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference that was held in Nashville, TN where he took the stage on Friday to deliver his message to the enthusiastic crowd, capping off a week when he has been tried in absentia by Nancy Pelosi’s J6 kangaroo court which seeks to deny him another shot at the White House.

“Even while January 6th defendants are having their lives totally destroyed and being treated worse than terrorists and murderers despite most being charged with parading through the Capitol, most people should not be treated the way they’re being treated,” Trump said, “and if I become president some day, if I decide to do it, I will be looking at them very, very seriously for pardons, very, very seriously,” drawing cheers from the audience, “they’ve been treated very unfairly.”

Trump also accused the committee of selective editing of witness testimony.

“The committee is taking the testimony of witnesses who defended me for eight hours, chopping it up and truncating sound bites to make it sound like what they said was absolutely terrible, but remember, it’s also the people who weren’t allowed to even testify that wanted to. A lot of people wanted to go and testify about what they saw and how crooked it was,” he said.

“Meanwhile, the committee refuses to play any of the tape of people saying the good things, the things that we want to hear,” Trump added, “it’s a one way street, it’s a rigged deal, it’s a disgrace and it’s never happened in the history of our country where we didn’t have any, we have no representation,”

Trump also took several shots at former VP Mike Pence who he called “a human conveyer belt,” ripped Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer who he said “sounded like a mob boss” and select committee Republican Adam Kinzinger, who he mocked as “the crier.”

“He cries every time he speaks, this guy’s got a mental disorder, he cries ever time this guy gets up to speak, he starts crying, I said there’s something wrong with that guy,” Trump said.

Trump’s suggestion that he could pardon the January 6 defendants – many of who have been rotting in a special D.C. prison under horrific conditions akin to a Chinese concentration camp – drew the predictable response from his antagonists including George Conway who suggested that it was witness tampering.

Others took to Twitter with their takes.

The former and perhaps future POTUS has been a very vocal critic of the J6 committee travesty which he critiqued in a post on Truth Social.

“The Unselect Committee of political thugs & scoundrels is trying to use disinformation and outright lies to RAILROAD people into the arms of the Justice Department,” he wrote. “They are doing everything within their power to criminalize politics, an absolute no no!”

“I watched this lowlife Raskin yesterday making things and statements up, from out of nowhere. Pure fiction!” Trump said. “The Dems play very dirty, but Republican leadership should never have allowed this Kangaroo Court to happen. A USA embarrassment!”
