Does "them" in the phrase "anyone who accepted them are criminals" refer back to "those pardons"?

Don't feel like getting into the details; but, looks like theRump has just screwed the pooch! He has definitely proven that his campaign for the 2016 Presidency was a criminal activity. By handing all those pardons, he has given prima facie evidence that anyone who accepted them are criminals. Neat, even though most of their crimes were priviously proven.

Yes. "Them" refers to "those pardons".

He is saying that accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt.

His claim is incorrect, but that is what he is claiming.

@oristarA,
I'm sure he doesn't agree with my assessment that he is incorrect.

@oristarA,
A pardon means you should not have been found guilty in the first place.

@Dr Sliptinschit,
"Pardon" comes from a vulgar-Latin ("perdonare") loan-translation of the Old High German firgeban ("to forgive", "to give but also "to poison")).
