Former US president Donald Trump has said if he were to run for president and win in 2024, he would pardon people charged with criminal offences in connection with the January 6 assault by his supporters on the US Capitol.
Mr Trump, who has not said whether he will run for president again after his defeat by Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 election, was speaking at a rally in Conroe, Texas.
"Another thing we'll do, and so many people have been asking me about it, if I run and if I win, we will treat those people from January 6th fairly," Mr Trump said to applause.
"We will treat them fairly, and if it requires pardons we will give them pardons, because they are being treated so unfairly."
Thousands of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6th, 2021, the worst assault on the US Congress since the War of 1812.
Fuelled by Mr Trump's false claims that his November 2020 election defeat was the result of fraud, the attackers sought to stop congress from certifying Mr Biden's victory.
One police officer who responded to the scene died the day after the attack, while four others who guarded the Capitol died later by suicide.
About 140 police officers were also injured during the attack and four rioters died.
More than 700 people have been charged with joining in the assault.
