NPR – The group, known as the Patriot Freedom Project, launched in response to the arrest of a Jan. 6 rioter known for promoting extreme racist, antisemitic and pro-Nazi views. The group’s leaders describe Jan. 6 defendants as “political prisoners” and have developed a close relationship with Trump and his 2024 presidential campaign. The former president has embraced defendants charged in the attack on the U.S. Capitol, calling them “hostages” and promising to issue pardons to defendants if he wins the 2024 presidential election. That close relationship has now drawn scrutiny from members of Congress.
