CHICAGO: Claims circulating on social media that US President Donald Trump plans to pardon suspects arrested over the storming of Congress on Jan. 6 are false, the Justice Department said on Monday.

Officials said charges have already been filed against several individuals, including a man accused of breaking into the offices of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The offices were vandalized and a number of items were taken, including her official podium.
