Graham Leads Group to Resist Trump Pardoning January 6 Participants

Donald Trump made a rather bold statement last week that, in my opinion, was a mistake.

We all have our opinions regarding January 6, and plenty of people that support Trump and/or MAGA have opposing views on the people arrested.

Yet, Trump announced that if elected, he would pardon them all.

Now he is getting resistance, led by Senator Graham (R-S.C.).

Right or Wrong?

The reason I don’t like this statement from Trump is that it divides Republican voters and feeds the Democrat narrative.

It is also a promise akin to Democrats offering giveaways and soft-on-crime legislation.

Nobody can stop him from doing it if he gets elected, so why risk alienating some supporters by saying you will do this before you get into office.

Graham agrees that this is a “bad idea,” stating, “Pardons are given to people who admit misconduct, rehabilitate themselves.

“They’re not supposed to be used for other purposes.”

Senator Kevin Cramer (R-S.D.) added, “I don’t think potential candidates should hold pardons out as a promise.

“It’s somewhat problematic for me on a moral level and an ethical level — sort of like promising other giveaways to particular individuals.”

The bottom line is that there were people who committed crimes that day and should be punished; saying there should be a blanket pardon would make me a hypocrite.

I do not know the details of every case, so I am sure some people received overzealous sentences.

Trump could have stated that he would review the cases and issue pardons as he saw fit, which is far different from a blanket pardon.

Even Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) seems to be thinking more along my lines, stating, “Let’s see which ones he would choose to do.

“There’s no question it has been a massive prosecutorial effort.“

If I were Trump, I would take the approach that rather than issuing a blanket pardon for January 6, I would look into the lack of prosecutions during the George Floyd rioting.

There was a stark difference in how rioters were treated in these two cases, and that, more than anything else, must be rectified.

Level playing field… that is all we are asking for here.

    1. WELL IN MY OPINION PARDONS FOR DAMAGE TO PEOPLE OR DUILDINGS SHOULD HAVE A SPEEDY FAIR. TRIAL AND SENTENCED BUT A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE DID NOT HURT OR DAMAGE ANYTHING. THOSE DESERVE THE PARDONS NO ONE ELSE

      1. I also agree . Funny anyone would be worried about pardons of people with no weapons but what about states that just tell criminals don’t do it again and they see no fines , jail time and it wasn’t even their first or second or even third offense.

        1. I actually have even produced $31400 best in thirty days simply running some clean responsibilities from a laptop. Immediately as soon as I’ve misplaced my (any-05) preceding position, I became very distressed and luckily I actually have observed this pleasant on line possibility that’s why I should make heaps staying at home. Everyone can virtually be part of this pleasant work & accumulate greater bucks online with the aid of using.

        2. Graham was McCain’s butt buddy. So it doesn’t surprise me that he would try to hurt Trump in any way that doesn’t make him look like the bad guy. But Graham is the bad guy. He should have kept his mouth shut. McCain was a Rino and so is Graham. I can throw him farther than I trust him to do what is right and good for America. Graham is just a hair above Romney when it comes to patriotism. But they are both RINOS.

      2. I AGREE. THESE PEOPLE ARE POLITICAL PRISONERS ONLY AND HAVE NEVER EVEN BEEN CHARGED WITH A CRIME-BUT BEING TREATED TERRIBLY!

      3. NP DESERVES A TRIAL THAT WOULDN’T PARDON ANYTHING SHE DOES…..POLICE ALREADY STATED THAT THOSE ARRESTED WERE ALSO BLM, ANTIFA, AND A LOT OF LIBERALS…….WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP ASKED FOR THE NATIONAL GUARD BEFORE THE MARCH, PISLOSI DENIED HIM……..THEN WHEN THINGS WENT INTO A CHAOS STATE, SHE CALLED IN THE NAT’L GUARD……NP IS EGOTISTICAL AND WANTED TO LOOK GOOD TO HER FOLLOWERS….

    1. I sure don’t trust Graham anymore either. He seems to have hidden agendas that he is unlikely to reveal until it is too late for voters to hold him accountable. Lets remember these times when he does his “backstabbing”!!!

    2. One day, you’re walking down the magnificent halls of the Capitol and Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina approaches you with a big smile. He welcomes you to the club, sweet-talking you in his smooth southern drawl, and tells you to reach out to him if you need anything at all. Have I made my first friend in Washington, D.C.? You ask yourself. Can I trust ol’ Lindsey to be there for me? The short answer: no, absolutely not. Graham has a habit of cozying up to powerful figures he calls “alpha dogs” — men like Joe Biden, John McCain— then angering them with his fickle behavior. But if you decide to pursue the friendship anyway, here’s what you can expect…..A ROYAL BACK STABBING DELUXE……..YOU WILL FIND HIM HOBNOBBING WITH BIDEN, DEMS/RINOS, AND THE OTHER TERRORISTS HE DRINKS WITH…….

  2. Theives , arsonists,killers, rapists,and terrorists went unpunished during so called George no Floyd riots.they ran wild with no punishment.if these people are not punished or the business owners are not allowed to handle punishment themselves then no one should be punished at all and we can go back to wild west days when crime and punishment were public and swift.one government and laws for all of none for anyone

    1. Including those that attacked the White House with the president inside, democrats thought it was funny. How sad & no charges

  3. Sure, Lindsey – and Executive Orders should only be used in emergency situations. OPEN YOUR EYES! We have lost the PRESCRIBED PROCESS of our Government! You all are out of control! Shut up, okay? There’s MUCH bigger fish to fry right now – PAY ATTENTION!!

    1. Agree 100% with JA. ALL have sinned against the spirit of the Constitution and have fallen short in the eyes American Patriots. Today’s liberals give new meaning to the term “betrayal” where it intersects with the spirit of the Founding Fathers.

  4. Presidents in the past have pardoned hard core criminals that did worse things than the people on 1/6. Trump is not in office and if and when he does become our next president my guess is that he will look at each case individually and will not do a blanket pardon for everyone.

    1. I think you are correct. Someone needs to apply logic to this and get innocent people with no charges to date out of jail! We are becoming a Banana Republic!

  5. Graham is a rino & as bad as they come. He is a back stabber & can’t be trusted. I came to that conclusion back in 2018.

  6. When dealing with an unrestrained, wily, and vindictive enemy one must be even more stealthy than they. Play their game, but play it better. Underestimating your opponent is foolish. Telegraphing your punches is even worse. God love him but I wish he’d been in a fistfight or two in his youth. This isn’t rocket science.

  7. There’s Ole Lindsey wearing his Rino suit again! Mr. President Donald J Trump, pardon those fellow patriots and put the real criminals like Lindsey in the slammer! Starting with Pedo Joe, and fancy pants Nancy! Throw away the key Please! I sure wish we could bring Ashley Babbit back! That precious unarmed Veteran did not deserve to die. Release those unduly persecuted and deprived of due process prisoners and
    Give them remunerations for their lost time and hardships! And erase their criminal records off the police reports! Maybe there are some that are still alive. We have no way of knowing their condition because of the lack of transparency and due process with this current administration!
    I pray they all get out safe and sound and write books that become best sellers so that all anti American scum bags get their noses rubbed into the dirt! I wish everyone that agrees with the Lindsey Grahams …could trade places with the prisoners including Lindsey! Permanently!
    Democrats suck and Rinos blow! They make strange bed fellows indeed! Tell Ole Pharoah! Let My People Go!

    1. Oh I do agree, all those that have been in jail for all this time have already served their time, theonly ones that should maybe get more time are the ones that fought with ppl or stole things. The majority just looked like they were wandering in amongst a crowd. Watch the videos dand more videos. God help those ppl. We used to have a law thar said these ppl are entitled to a speedy recovery. RIGHT!

  8. If those innocent of violence are still in jail after 4 years, they deserve to get pardoned and record cleared. I know serious criminals that serve less time, rapists, weapons charges, … Look at the piglossi husband causing a bad accident, no time in jail and community service where at a club visiting with his buds. Not doing any real community service, hand him a trash bag or help in a soup kitchen.

  9. Graham is partly responsible for the serious mistreatment of those arrested and kept in a gulag because the RINO yellow belly snake has not called out the democrat Mayor or Congress for the suffering of people arrested who did nothing more than walk into a government building following the barricades and doors being opened by the Capital police. He has zero integrity and should not be in his position in the Senate. His mouth needs to be sewn shut! I fully support Graham be confined to that gulag for as long as the longest serving prisoner is confined.

  10. Most of the people in prison have never been formally charged, or received their due process under law. Something that is given to the illegals walking into this country.

  11. Graham is a back stabber, Rino, he is becoming a Mitt Romney, playing both sides, he thinks this makes him look big, important, but he is hurting his own self,,

    Remember, God loves you,

  12. He didn’t say he would pardon them all. He said he’d pardon those who did nothing other than walk through or stood outside.

  13. These RINOs Graham and McConnell need to be removed. There were no guns except those in the capital police, and no one was hurt by violence except Ashley Babbitt. This WAS NOT AN F’ING INSURRECTION!!

  14. They’ve been held for a long period as “political prisoners” in violation of the Constitution. It’s long past time to free them.

  15. The two cops from the DC Police who killed the two women killed, ( one shot point blank, and one beaten to death with his fists and nightstick ) should be prosecuted. The DC Police units set up in Florida and Calif. should be illegal, and all the false charges that came about because of them should be rectified.
    If it were up to me, all of the DC Police should be put up against walls and executed. They are pure evil !

  16. IS THERE ANY DOUBT ABOUT LINDSAY GRAHAM BEING A RINO? HE SHOWS IT TIME AFTER TIME, WHY IN HELL IS THIS RINO STILL IN OFFICE? AND SAME FOR SO MANY MORE. ONLY IN THE GOP, NOW WE KNOW WHY THE DEMORATS WIN ALL THE TIME, BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE BAD NEWS FOR AMERICA/AMERICANS, THEY DO STICK TOGETHER, NOT SO FOR THE GOP, THATS FOR SURE. EVEN WHEN THEY HAD IT ALL, A FEW YEARS AGO, THEY STILL ACCOMPLISHED “0”! WILL THIS PARTY EVER GET SOME BALLS?

  17. OUR SICKO / CORRUPT GOVERNMENT, CONGRESS. AND JUDICIAL DEPT/OFFICES, LEAVE A LOT TO BE DESIRED. I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH CORRUPTION WITHIN EVERY DEPT. THE WHOLE AMERICAN “SHEBANG” OF OUR GOVERNMENT, STARTING WITH THE PRESIDENCY, NEEDS A DRASTIC OVERHAULING. AND…HELL YES THIS ALSO INCLUDES TWEAKING THE AMENDMENTS, ESPECIALLY THE 1ST AND 2ND. AND…..{ESPECIALLY} THE ONE THAT ALLOWS, ILLEGALS TO COME INTO THE USA, AND DROP THEIR KIDS, TO BECOME INSTANT CITIZENS??? WHAT IN HELL KIND OF “WHACKO LAW IS THIS???”FOR ONCE AND ALL”, {FAKE NEWS” MUST BE ABOLISHED. CHANGES TO THE 1ST AMENDMENT SHOULD BE PHASED IN TOREFLECT THIS “TRAVESTY”. THE “FAKE NEWS”, HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO THRIVE FOR WAY TOO LONG, AND HAS REALLY PUT THE HURT ON AMERICA/AMERICANS!

  18. AS WE SEE DAILY, “EXECUTIVE ORDERS” IN THE HANDS OF A {TYRANT}, CAN DO MUCHO DAMAGE. AND…BY THE STROKE OF A PEN, OR A PHONE CALL, [EVEN THOUGH MOST ARE ILLEGAL, AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION}, THEY STILL ARE FOLLOWED BY MANY, “SHEEP HERDERS / FOLLOWERS / KOOL AIR DRINKERS”, WHO BREAK THEIR OATHS WITHOUT A CARE, ONLY TO FOLLOW FRAUDULENT / ILLEGAL ORDERS AGAINST AMERICANS. THE WORST ONES WHO DISREGARD THEIR OATHS, ARE THE “BORDER PATROL”. WHY IN HELL DO THESE PEOPLE, GO AGAINST AMERICA, INSTEAD OF PROTECTING HER FROM HARM, AS THE OATH THEY TOOK STATES?

  19. Sorry, but aren’t the democrats giving pardons to millions of illegal immigrants regardless of their crimes? They are SUCH HYPOCRITES!!!
