President Trump called for the release of patriotic Americans who were protesting a “stolen election” on Friday, drawing attention to the ongoing plight of the Jan. 6 political prisoners being held in Washington, D.C.
“Patriotic Americans are being prosecuted for peacefully protesting a stolen election,” Trump said in a new statement. “LET THEM GO! They were convicted, or are awaiting trial, based on a giant lie, a radical left con job. Thank you to Tucker Carlson and Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy for what you both have done. New video footage is irrefutable – absolutely irrefutable. Thank you very much.”
In early March, long-awaited footage from U.S. Capitol protests on Jan. 6, 2021, was aired by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. The tapes showed shocking visual evidence that what occurred inside the U.S. Capitol that day was not a “violent insurrection,” as the mainstream media and Jan. 6 Committee would have Americans believe.
Carlson stated, “Taken as a whole, the video record does not support the claim that January 6 was an insurrection. In fact, it demolishes that claim, and that’s exactly why the Democratic Party and its allies in the media prevented you from seeing it.”
As reported by RSBN, more than 50 American citizens are being held in D.C. prison facilities in the wake of the Jan. 6 protests.
“We have to fight for our country, and we have to fight like we’ve never fought before,” Trump continued. “Our country is great, but it’s in tremendous trouble. We’re a nation in decline, we have to stop being called a nation in decline. They’re laughing at us all over the world – we’re not going to let that happen any longer.”
President Trump recently threw his personal support behind the Jan. 6 prisoners, partnering with the Jan. 6 Choir to release a rendition of the National Anthem, “Justice for All,” which shot to number one in the Apple Store upon its release last week.
The net proceeds from the song go directly toward supporting the families of the jailed Jan. 6 political prisoners.
