DeSantis: If Elected I Might Pardon Trump And Rioters

“We will use the pardon power, and I will do that at the front end. You know, a lot of people wait until the end of the administration to issue pardons.

“We’re going to find examples where government’s been weaponized against disfavored groups and we will apply relief as appropriate.

“But it will be done on a case-by-case basis, because I think you’ve got to make sure that – there’s a whole bunch of cases that don’t necessarily get headlines.

“But if people are being treated just because they don’t get on TV or something – they’re being treated disfavorably – they need to have a fair hearing as well.

“I would say any example of disfavored treatment based on politics or weaponization would be included in that review, no matter how small or how big.” – Ron DeSantis, when pressed by right wing host Buck Sexton if he’d pardon Trump and the Capitol rioters.
