(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an independent presidential candidate has stated that he is not going to discuss possibly pardoning the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol rioters until after he wins the presidential election. 

Kennedy during a Tuesday interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto did not share anything about his approach regarding the ones who are responsible for storming the U.S. Capitol. However, he did disclose that these are cases that he would consider on a case-by-case basis. What he did confirm though is that he would be pardoning WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, an American intelligence contractor. 

Kennedy stated specifically that he would not comment on whether or not he considered it a “good idea” to pardon the rioters after being asked about them. 

Cavuto had proceeded to inquire about Kennedy’s preferred approach after former President Donald Trump had remarked on Monday that as soon as he won back the White House he would be freeing all of the Jan. 6 “hostages.” In a post on his social media platform Truth Social Trump had argued that when he became the President again the first thing he would do would be to secure the border, followed by drilling and freeing the Jan. 6 Hostages who had been “wrongfully imprisoned.” 

Kennedy argued that he was not going to be commenting on this matter, but he did share that if he wins the White House he will be using the presidential pardon power for Snowden and Assange. He added that he would also potentially pardon Ross Ulbricht, the dark web marketplace creator.
