In the wake of new footage released by Tucker Carlson, former President Donald Trump has called for the release of January 6th prisoners. On his new social media platform, Truth Social, Trump stated:
“LET THE JANUARY 6 PRISONERS GO. THEY WERE CONVICTED, OR ARE AWAITING TRIAL, BASED ON A GIANT LIE, A RADICAL LEFT CON JOB.”
Trump’s statement follows the release of video footage by Carlson that purports to show individuals being allowed into the Capitol building by police officers on January 6th, among other things.
Many are joining Trump in his call for justice.
