Republican Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is open to hundreds of pardons, which may eventually include members of the Biden family, the New York Post reported on Saturday.

Vivek has pledged to shut down the FBI if he were to be elected President and that after that was accomplished, as well as reforming the Department of Justice, he would be opened to pardons for Donald Trump and those that remained peaceful on January 6, as well as pardons for members of the Biden family “in the interest of moving the nation forward”.

“I am leading the great revival. After we have shut down the FBI, after we have refurbished the Department of Justice, after we have systemically pardoned anyone who was a victim of a political motivated persecution — from Donald Trump and peaceful January 6 protests — then would I would be open to evaluating pardons for members of the Biden family in the interest of moving the nation forward.”

“It is a broad theme of this candidacy, leading us to a national renewal rather than a national divorce”, he said. “It’s part of a broader vision of an American revitalization”.

Ramaswamy pledged back in June that he would pardon Donald Trump and even sent a letter to several of his 2024 GOP rivals, asking that they pledge to pardon Trump or explain their decision not to.

Ramaswamy filed a suit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) on August 1, alleging a failure to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request demanding to see the communications between the White House and DOJ in the classified documents indictment against Trump.

In June, Ramaswamy called for a special counsel to “investigate and publish all findings related to Hunter Biden and Biden-family business dealings” and said that “There cannot be a two-tiered justice system in this country. If there is going to be a Trump-releated special counsel, there must also be a Biden-related special counsel”.

“Public distrust of the American justice system is at an all-time high. For more than 10 years, there has been an FBI investigation into the alleged bribery of Hunter and Joe Biden from the Ukrainian executive of oligarch-owned Burisma. It’s past time for the FBI and the DOJ to show their work to the American people,” he added.
