A very realistic possibility being discussed is Trump using his presidential pardon to wholesale pardon all of the people involved in the capital assault on January 6th.
What is your opinion of this action?

I may be glib about the Capitol assault, but truth be told, I can't believe it actually happened. I disagree with the Right's tactics regularly, but invading the Capitol building was absolutely asinine. It was a crime, plain and simple. The Left may have started down the path to harassing elected officials, but that doesn't mean the Right has to trump their antics.
The Right should be focused on building political and civil power at the State and local level. Tearing up the Capitol accomplishes nothing toward that goal.
However, I am pleased the Right actually grew a pair. If there's any #Whitepill in this event, it's that the Right may be un-pussyifying itself.
I don't see why not...
We abandoned the Rule of Law long ago; but did so openly and in earnest about a year ago, to allow spoiled white kids to burn down black neighborhoods because fascism or some such nonsense.
First, we need to re-establish the Rule of Law in America, for everybody (including Democrats going back at least as far as Eric Holder, all the way through Obama & Hillary to Schumer/Pelosi/Biden & son/etc.)
Until we do that, we don't have the legitimate authority to arrest anybody... for anything; because that would be a violation of their Constitutional Right to equal treatment under the law.
The Law applies to everybody... or it applies to nobody. There's no middle ground. Selective enforcement is not Rule of Law at all, it's Rule of Man. Otherwise know simply as: tyranny.
Normally No. However as they intend to make his life hell, F'em. I think Trump will be persecuted for years to come. That taken into account and the BDL support from the Democratic Party, spike the guns of your enemy and Pardon all protesters.
(Note ... not the shooter. That is too important so it goes to court)
