Earlier this year, the former President called for the immediate release of all detained January 6 rioters. Over 1,000 people have been arrested for storming the U.S. Capitol. Over 650 defendants have pleaded guilty, and more than 600 have been sentenced, with over half serving prison time ranging from three days to 22 years.
Trump himself faces several charges regarding his role on January 6, such as conspiracy to violate rights, the recruitment of fake electors, conspiracy to defraud the United States, attempt to obstruct an official proceeding and conspiracy to commit that crime.
The ex-president has gone on to deny any wrongdoing.
