Former President Donald Trump is beginning to hold rallies and conduct interviews with right-wing media, getting attention primarily with his base.

In those rallies and interviews, he is calling for pardons for those arrested in the Jan. 6 violence to stop the electoral vote. He is calling for protests in the streets if the various prosecutors investigating him and his businesses are found to be doing “anything illegal.”
