Washington (EFE).- The former president of the United States Donald Trump and a group of people imprisoned for their alleged participation in the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021 have collaborated to create a song titled “Justice for all” (Justice for all ).
As reported by Forbes magazine, which cites a person familiar with the project as a source, the song is already available on most streaming music servers.
The song interpolates the voice of Trump reciting the pledge to the flag in “The Star-Spangled Banner” (the national anthem of the United States), which is performed by a group of about 20 inmates.
The group calls itself the “J6 Prison Choir” (January 6 Prison Choir) and all of its members are serving time in a Washington, DC jail.
Proceeds to the families of the incarcerated
According to Politico, the profits obtained from the dissemination of the patriotic theme will go to the families of the people convicted and imprisoned for their participation in the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021 and which left five dead.
Trump recorded that pledge of allegiance at his residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, a couple of weeks ago, specifically for this song.
The inmates, who sing the national anthem every night, were recorded using a jail phone about a month ago. According to the Político newspaper, the song, which lasts 2 minutes and 20 seconds, was produced by an important artist who was not identified.
The disclosure of the recording of the subject coincides with the revelation of the United States Department of Justice that it considers that the former president can be sued for having incited the assault on the Capitol for which more than 700 people were arrested.
Lawyers for the Justice Department understand that the president’s official responsibilities do not include incitement to violence, such as the one attributed to Trump in the speech he gave that day to a crowd in front of the White House, when in the Congress officially ratified the electoral victory of Democrat Joe Biden.
