A song by the men and women convicted for the January 6, 2021 attack reached the top slot on the iTunes music chart this weekend.

The song by the J6 Prison Choir, called “Justice for All,” features former President Donald Trump himself saying the Pledge of Allegiance. The song mostly is the “Star Spangled Banner” being sung slowly with an eerie backtrack. The song ends with the choir chanting “U.S.A.!, U.S.A.!”

The song beat Miley Cyrus‘ new single “Flowers” on iTunes, although failed to make the top 50 list on Spotify. Trump recorded his part at Mar-a-Lago while the J6 Prison Choir used a jailhouse phone.

The single has over 650,000 views on YouTube.

The proceeds made from the song allegedly will go directly to the defendant’s families of those who are locked up for Jan 6-related charges. Trump has a long history of misdirecting funds raised including for the so-called “Stop The Steal” solicitations after the 2020 election.

Trump has expressed support for the January 6 rioters who were imprisoned for their actions. The ex-president claims that the rioters have been “treated unconstitutionally, in my opinion, and very, very unfairly, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it… It’s the weaponization of the Department of Justice, and we can’t let this happen in our country.”

Trump and his supporters have long called the January 6 Committee and the DOJ investigations into the January 6 riot a politically motivated attack.

The leaders of the Oath Keepers, Stewart Rhodes and Kelly Miggs, have been convicted of seditious conspiracy for their roles in the January 6 riot.

Others have been convicted for attacking police officers.

Trump has announced his candidacy to run for the Republican nomination in 2024.
