Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Mo Brooks Sent Email To Trump Aide Seeking Pardons For GOP Lawmakers: CBS”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) sent the Trump White House an email requesting pardons for hundreds of Republican lawmakers who attempted to overthrow the 2020 election, saying he did so at the behest of then-President Donald Trump, according to CBS reporter Robert Costa, who tweeted Thursday that Brooks had shared the email with him.

The email, dated Jan. 11, 2021, and addressed to Trump’s White House executive assistant Molly Michael, seeks preemptive pardons for 147 members of Congress who voted against the certification of the Electoral College results in Arizona and Pennsylvania, states Joe Biden won.

The email also requests pardons for all 126 Republicans who, in December 2020, signed an amicus brief for a Texas lawsuit that sought to challenge the election results in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia — states Biden also won.

“Dear Mollie: President Trump told me to send you this letter,” the email begins, adding that it’s also “pursuant to a request” from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.).

“It is clear that deep-pocketed and vitriolic Socialist Democrats ... are going to abuse America’s judicial system by targeting numerous Republicans with sham charges deriving from our recent fight for honest and accurate elections and speeches related thereto,” the email reads. It then requests “general (all purpose) pardons” for the lawmakers.
