(TheRedWire.com) – Robert F. Kennedy, an independent presidential candidate in the 2024 presidential election, was asked during an appearance on “Cuomo” with host Chris Cuomo whether or not he would be convicting those who have been charged in connection to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack. 

In response, Kennedy argued that he believed it was appropriate for a special counsel to be appointed who would be looking whether or not it was “appropriate” for those who were convicted in connection to Jan. 6, 2021, to have faced charges. He added that he would be looking to “restore” trust and peace in the United States. 

As he told Cuomo his main focus was not trying to exonerate these people but instead to restore people. He added that currently, they were living at a time when many Americans did not trust the United States government, which as he pointed out is the real problem. 

Kennedy has attempted to find a middle ground when it comes to the Capitol attack, while former President Donald Trump, who is the presumptive Republican nominee has suggested that it has been unjust to have those people convicted by President Biden’s Justice Department which has pursued these prosecutions. 

Previously Kennedy had faced a lot of criticisms as his campaign had sent out last week a fundraising email in which he claimed that those involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol attack had been “activists” whose Constitutional liberties had been taken away. However, a spokesperson from his campaign stepped up later to say that the language of the email had been an error.
