The "J6 Prison Choir," a group of men charged for their role in the Jan. 6, 2021 invasion of the U.S. Capitol, created a song, which reached the top spot on iTunes over the weekend.

The Jan. 6 detainees sing the "Star Spangled Banner" in the two-minute song, "Justice For All," which also includes Trump reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. The choir chants "USA! USA!" continuously as the song ends. After being released on March 3, the song reached the number two position on the iTunes song charts on March 10 before passing Miley Cyrus' "Flowers" to reach first place on March 11.

The accused were indicted for breaking into the Capitol building on January 6, 2021, as officials were confirming Joseph Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election. In the weeks preceding that day, Trump had contested the election results and invited supporters to demonstrate on his behalf in Washington, D.C. as he pursued the challenges.

A Washington, D.C., correctional facility's same wing is currently housing a large number of inmates accused of breaking into the Capitol on January 6, 2021. They started to organize a chorus that would perform the national anthem every night at 9 p.m. as a result of the fact that many of the prisoners were held in the facility for months as they awaited their trials. This nightly custom led to the creation of the "J6 Prison Choir".

According to the choir's website, "J6 Prison Choir is made up of people who are currently in prison as a result of their participation in the January 6, 2021 protest for election integrity after President Donald J. Trump said, "I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard." The J6PC performs "The Star Spangled Banner" every night before going to bed as part of their ongoing effort to be heard via the power of music.

According to Forbes, Trump recorded his verse a few weeks earlier at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, and the J6 Prison Chorus recorded its verse using a jailhouse phone.

Trump appeared at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) the day after the song's release. Just a few days later, Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson started showing clips of recently obtained surveillance footage taken on January 6 in and around the U.S. Capitol, claiming that it debunks popular political and media narratives about the gravity of some defendants' activities that day. Defendant Jacob Chansley, also known as the "Q-Anon Shaman," was seen on January 6 being brought around the Capitol by police officers who didn't seem threatened by Chansley's behavior that day.

Carlson contended that despite Chansley later entering a guilty plea and receiving a term of more than three years in prison for his activities, the video demonstrated that he posed only a minor security risk.

The video, according to prosecutors, does not clear Chansley of any wrongdoing. The prosecution claimed that Chansley had shouted obscenities in the Senate chamber and that Chansley had resisted being led out of the building until additional officers arrived. They also claimed that the video Carlson had shown did not demonstrate this.
