(FixThisNation.com) – Former D.C. police officer Michael Fanone had called out former President Donald Trump for continuously calling the Jan. 6 Capitol rioters the Jan. 6 hostages and arguing that if he is reelected in office he will be pardoning them. 

On Friday Fanone stated on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Trump was a “sick” person and that the fact that he would align with the same people who had assaulted police officers who were just doing their job is “sick.” He continued by arguing that anyone who would express support for these people was “equally demented.” 

Fanone had joined Willie Geist to talk about the presidential immunity hearing in the Supreme Court. During the attack on the Capitol Fanone had been beaten by the rioters who had entered the building. As a result, he had suffered from a traumatic brain injury from being tased and had suffered from a heart attack. 

Fanone has been one of the most outspoken activists at the Capitol among law enforcement. 

On Thursday the Supreme Court had listened to Trump’s lawyers present their arguments in the immunity case for close to three hours. Trump has maintained that he should be immune from facing any criminal prosecution relating to his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election as he can benefit from presidential immunity. 

The justices during the hearing appeared skeptical about the presidential immunity arguments which could potentially even cover the Jan. 6 attempted coup. However, they did seem ready to give some level of immunity to the former President from criminal prosecution. 

Trump’s legal team has maintained that the president needed to be given “absolute immunity” for all official acts they take during office and that this immunity should even be extended to after he loses the election.
