Trump promises full pardon and an EXCUSE from the government for all rioters in the Capitol if he is re-elected

  • Donald Trump has said he will issue pardons to Capitol rioters and a government apology if he regains the presidency
  • The former president also said he met with rioters in his office
  • It has been revealed that he is helping some of these supporters financially

Donald Trump has said he will pardon his supporters who stormed the Capitol last year if he wins back the presidency – and said he has met with some of the accused.

Trump has yet to say whether he will run for president in 2024, but has hinted at the move several times and told supporters at several rallies that they were happy with his decision.

“I extend my full pardon with an apology to many,” the former president told Conservative radio host Wendy Bell on Thursday morning.

Issuing a government apology and granting pardons would depend on him regaining his seat in the Oval Office.

Trump says he met with some of the defendants this week in the case against those who rioted in the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

He even revealed to Bell in Thursday morning’s interview that he is helping some of the defendants deal with the financial consequences.

“I sponsor people who are incredible, and they were actually in my office two days ago, so I remember them very much,” Trump said.

“It’s a shame what they did to them. What they did to these people is a disgrace.”

Many Trump supporters identified that day as taking part in the rioting were found guilty and sentenced to prison terms – some to up to several years.

Last year’s attack on the Capitol killed four and injured more than 140 law enforcement officers.

A fifth casualty in the riot occurred the day after when Brian Sicknick, a Capitol Police officer, suffered a stroke after being sprayed with a strong chemical irritant during the attack.

Rioters were armed with bear spray and pepper spray, flagpoles, baseball bats and stun guns.

Among the jailed rioters was Guy Reffitt, 49, a member of the far-right Texas Three Percenters militia. He was the first Capitol rioter to stand trial and received a seven-year and three-month sentence.

Reffitt’s sentence is the longest that has been served on an insurgent.

He was convicted by a grand jury of five felonies, including bringing a gun onto Capitol grounds and obstructing an official proceeding.
