Former US President Donald Trump and a group of people jailed for their alleged role in the January 6, 2021 storming of the Capitol have collaborated to create a song titled "Justice for all."
As reported by Forbes magazine, citing a person familiar with the project as a source, the song is now available on most streaming music servers.
The song interpolates Trump's voice reciting the Pledge of Allegiance into "The Star-Spangled Banner" (the United States' national anthem), which is performed by a group of about 20 inmates.
The group calls itself the "J6 Prison Choir" and is all serving time in a Washington, D.C. jail. The song ends with the inmates joining in the chant of "United States!".
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 a well-known 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.
