2020 ELECTION/PARDONS: “Donald Trump said on Thursday [September 1, 2022] he would pardon and apologize to those who participated in the deadly attack on the US Capitol on January 6 if he were elected to the White House again.
‘I mean full pardons with an apology to many,’ he told Wendy Bell, a conservative radio host on Thursday. ‘I will be looking very, very strongly about pardons, full pardons.’
Five people died in connection with the attack and more than 140 law enforcement officers were injured.”
