Trump Teams with Jan. 6 Prisoners to Release Charity Single ‘Justice for All’

The release of the song “Justice for All” was designed to raise money for families and call attention to the question of equal justice, organizers say.

Former President Donald Trump joined with imprisoned Jan. 6 defendants on Thursday night to release a charity single entitled "Justice for All," designed to raise money for some of the defendants' families and call attention to concerns about equal application of the law.

The officially released track debuted as a digital single and a vintage vinyl record on several streaming services.

Both Trump and a group of incarcerated demonstrators, dubbed the J6 Prison Choir, contribute vocals to the track. The prisoners recorded their contributions through a jailhouse phone.

The tracks consists of the Jan. 6 prisoners singing the "Star Spangled Banner" while Trump recites the Pledge of Allegiance.

Record executive LJ Fino, who helped on the project, said he expected the release to be greeted with cheers and jeers.

"I am, of course, a huge supporter of The First Amendment and expect that many consumers will love it and many will hate it."

The former president has previously said he may pardon some of the Jan. 6 defendants should he return to the White House and lamented their treatment at the hands of the Department of Justice.

"It's a disgrace what they've done to them. What they've done to these people is disgraceful," he said in September of last year. "I mean full pardons with an apology to many."

Real America's Voice TV network anchor Ed Henry and former Trump advisor Kash Patel also contributed to the project.

Patel, for his part, highlighted the Department of Justice's handling of Jan. 6 prosecutions and expressed hope that the single would help raise awareness about their plight.

"As a former federal public defender, its shocking how the two-tier system of justice has hijacked constitutional due process and replaced it with, due process for only those we agree with politically," he said.

”As a former national security prosecutor, its tragic this DOJ has abandoned the law and failed to disclose all evidence against so many of those overcharged and needlessly detained since Jan 6."

"This DOJ has failed to act lawfully, so we will call them out and put our money on the line for the freedoms and due process of the J6 families. That's what #J6PC is all about," he continued. "Americans have been stripped of their rights, denied bail, and treated worse than terrorists. This is no longer justice, but gulag for political punishment."

"If they have the voice to sing our national anthem every night from the D.C. gulag, then we must be a voice for them, our freedoms, and their families," he asserted.
