RINO Senators Tell Trump “Pardons for Jan. 6 Protesters Is Bad Idea”


These spineless RINOs are worthless to the American people.

RINO Senators Lindsey Graham, Mike Rounds, and Kevin Kramer slammed Trump and said “pardons for January 6 protesters was a bad idea.”

Yet, these same senators remained silent about the men and women imprisoned today without trial following the January 6 protests.

They’re as useless as Democrats and all must go!

There are protestors still in prison today who committed no violence and didn’t even enter the the US Capitol on January 6th!

RINO senators have nothing to say about this!

The Hill reported:

Former President Trump’s promise to grant pardons to the rioters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, is running into strong opposition from Senate Republicans.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of Trump’s closest allies, told The Hill that granting pardons to Jan. 6 protesters is “a bad idea.”

“Pardons are given to people who admit misconduct, rehabilitate themselves. They’re not supposed to be used for other purposes,” he said.

Other Republican senators are joining Graham in criticizing Trump’s promise to pardon the Jan. 6 protesters as inappropriate.

“I don’t think potential candidates should hold pardons out as a promise,” said Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), who is usually a reliable Trump ally. “It’s somewhat problematic for me on a moral level and an ethical level — sort of like promising other giveaways to particular individuals.

“I prefer avoiding those kinds of things,” he said.

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) said he wouldn’t support granting pardons to people convicted of crimes because of their actions on Jan. 6.

“If he were elected, he would have a constitutional ability to do it,” he said of Trump’s promise of pardons. “I would disagree with it. I think there was insurrection and I think these folks need to be punished.

“I was there. This was truly violent. People were injured, people were killed. I have very little mercy for the individuals that were involved in that activity that day,” Rounds added.

Senate Republican Whip John Thune (S.D.) said people who committed crimes on Jan. 6 must face the consequences of their actions.

“The only people that get pardoned are people who are charged with crimes. If they were charged with crimes, they ought to be prosecuted like everybody else,” he said. “The rule of law applies. If people broke laws, they need to be held accountable.”

Unsurprisingly, Mitt Romney said pardoning people who invaded the Capitol to stop Biden’s election would be wrong.

“The Jan. 6 riot was an attack on the temple of democracy, and the people who violated the law, attacked our law enforcement and besmirched our nation’s Capitol should be prosecuted according to the law, and certainly should not be pardoned,” he said.

“It’s a grossly inappropriate comment to make.”

These are spineless cowards who have zero qualms with average Americans having their constitutional rights trampled by Democrats.
