Ronna McDaniel disagrees with Trump’s plan to free some Jan. 6 prisoners

Former Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel said on Sunday that she disagrees with former President Donald Trump’s plan to free those charged and convicted of crimes from the Jan. 6 attack at the Capitol.

“Do you disagree with Trump saying he’s going to free those who have been charged?” NBC News’ “Meet the Press” moderator Kristen Welker asked.

I do not think people who committed violent acts on January 6 should be free,” McDaniel responded.

McDaniel added that “the violence that happened on January 6 is unacceptable.”

“It doesn’t represent our country,” McDaniel said.

“If you attacked our capital and … you’ve been convicted, then that should stay,” she added.

Still, McDaniel maintained,”I don’t hold [Trump] responsible for” the attack at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

The former RNC chair has been accused of joining Trump to pressure Michigan election officials not to certify the 2020 presidential election there.

On Sunday, she confirmed that Biden won “fair and square,” adding that “he’s the legitimate president.”

The statement marks an apparent shift from her interview last year with Chris Wallace on CNN in which she refused to say the election was fair and that “there were a lot of problems with 2020.”
