Donald Trump recorded a video message directed at some January 6 defendants, vowing to “get to the bottom” of the “weaponization” of the Department of Justice.
His comments come just days after Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) relayed that the former President and First Lady Melania are “just sick” over the way some January 6 prisoners have been pursued.
“People have been treated unconstitutionally, in my opinion, and very, very unfairly, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it,” said Trump, speaking in a video for a Thursday fundraising event for the group known as Patriot Freedom Project.
“It’s the weaponization of the Department of Justice, and we can’t let this happen in this country.”

Trump Stands With January 6 Defendants
The Patriot Freedom Project states its mission is to “provide support for those that are being held as political prisoners, along with their families and friends” who are “suffering at the hands of a weaponized justice system.”
“Our country is going – not socialist, they’ve skipped over that, they’ve skipped over socialism – our country is going Communist,” Trump added.
“We can’t let it happen. We have to stop it,” the 2024 presidential candidate continued, before predicting, “We’re going to stop it. We’re going to win.”

RELATED: Trump Vows Pardons, Government Apology For January 6 Defendants
Trumps Are Sick Over the Way Protesters Have Been Treated
Greene, in a podcast interview with Steve Bannon, said she spoke to the Trumps recently and the former First Family are disgusted with the way the January 6 defendants have been treated.
“President Trump and Melania were both just sick over what they learned,” she said.
Some defendants being held in a DC jail have requested a transfer to Guantanamo Bay because the conditions they are being held in are so reprehensible.
Trump has insisted that he would issue pardons for some of the January 6 rioters, along with a formal apology from the federal government, should he win back the White House in 2024.
“I mean full pardons with an apology to many,” Trump told conservative radio host Wendy Bell.
“It’s very much on my mind. It’s a disgrace what they’ve done to them,” he added. “What they’ve done to these people, it’s disgraceful.”

Several Republicans have voiced opposition to Trump’s plan to pardon the rioters.
Senator Mike Rounds (R-SC) states that Trump would have the right to issue pardons but he would personally be opposed.
“If he were elected, he would have a constitutional ability to do it,” said Rounds. “I would disagree with it. I think there was insurrection and I think these folks need to be punished.”
“I was there. This was truly violent. People were injured, people were killed,” he added. “I have very little mercy for the individuals that were involved in that activity that day.”

“Pardons are given to people who admit misconduct, rehabilitate themselves. They’re not supposed to be used for other purposes,” Graham said. from @alexanderbolton: https://t.co/fLTFUXGfKW

The only person who was actually killed that day was unarmed Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, who was shot by a Capitol Police officer. Several others died from non-violent causes.

Now watch the true enemies of the American Republic trash this legitimate attempt to release the innocent victims of the Jan 6 entrapment scheme
THEY ALL SHOULD BE PARDON AND i MEAN ALL.
You folks are loony and dangerous. There should be warning signals for anyone who believes this stuff. What, exactly, is your aim in writing it?
Demonicrooks sold U.S. to china (worlds biggest polluter) and globalists (plandemic mass murderers) by stealing election “to help pollution and people.”
Biggest crazy, stupid fools in earth history. FUNNY, THEY HAVE NEVER ONCE ACCUSED CHINA OF GLOBAL WARMING POLLUTION.
unlike the liars and traitors begging for amnesty for their Wuhan flu
crimes, the majority Jan6 folks didn’t do anything wrong. Maybe what
needs to be outed is the infiltrators that did the actual damage. Yet
the leftism at large lets blm rioters murders and arsonist go
scot-free. Jan6 is to punish Trump more than anything else. Elections
have consequences, get rid of the election fraud.
I guess Lindsey Graham doesn’t care about due process fair treatment and speedy trials. Many of these people have been treated like they were in a gulag in a communist country – the DC jail might as well be considered a communist gulag.
