Former President Donald Trump, who was impeached for inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, on Thursday condemned the criminal prosecution of hundreds of his supporters who were part of the mob that invaded the Capitol that day.

"Trump's statement that those people are being "persecuted" came as police in Washington prepared for Saturday's planned "Justice for J6" rally outside the Capitol, which is being held to support the defendants.

Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr., D-N.J., quickly blasted Trump's statement, accusing the former president of "trying again to gin up insurrection and get people killed."

He's trying to gin up the numbers for the new Rally Riot tomorrow... he must be getting a cut of the red hat sales.

I heard one of the organizers asked attendees to not wear Trump apparel.

Helluva thing, prosecuting people for trying to overthrow the government. Guess he didn't give them pardons while squeezing his fat arse out the WH door. They should've "contributed" more.

The orange oaf would know more about it had he actually fulfilled his promise of being "there" with his pathetic leghumpers . Instead, Bunker Boy was, as usual, AWOL.

Our nation has lost the two party system. Today, only one party represents democracy while the other party really only represents anti-democratic values. That isn't my opinion that just a fact. A sad fact, it wasn't always this way but the Republicans have lost their morality, their belief in democracy, and their faith in America. I don't know if they will ever recover it but I do hope they will, it is sad to see the Party of Lincoln descend to such depths.
