Pence doesn’t become a hero because he did his job.😠😠
Make no mistake..Dolt45 would have killed him, his wife and child..
They changed the lock code on his office at the Capitol on 1/6….
And still, Pence wouldn’t pull the 25th Amendment…😒😒😒
Why won’t Pence testify before the January 6 House Committee and tell all of us what really happened?

Luttig calls Trump, his allies, AND his supporters a clear and present danger to American democracy. Not just because of January 6, but because they will try and overturn the 2024 election as well.

As the rift between Trump and Pence grew due to their disagreements about Pence’s ability to overturn the election, Pence’s chief of staff, Marc Short, became concerned for Pence’s safety.
Short was worried enough to consult the Secret Service. pic.twitter.com/rAamTM2FD6

"You wrote that the efforts by Pres. Trump to overturn the 2020 election were, quote, the most reckless, insidious and calamitous failures in both legal and political judgment in American history. What did you mean by that?"

As we've already known, the President knowingly pumped up the crowd to attack and kill the VP and members of Congress.

Greg Jacob, Pence's former counsel, says Trump never called Pence to check on his safety during the insurrection.

Per the testimony of indicted Proud Boys: "anyone the rioters would have gotten their hands on, they would have killed… including Speaker Pelosi … including Mike Pence." — chilling testimony from today's #January6thCommitteeHearings

JOHN EASTMAN was the intellectual force behind the idea that Pence had the authority to reject electors and have GOP-dominated state legislatures appoint new slates.

See, Pence knew, if He got in that car, he wouldn't be able to return to the Capitol to beat the Midnight deadline. IMO Grassley would have moved just before the clock ran out.
The backup plan.
— Badd Company (@BaddCompani) June 16, 2022
On January 5th, 2021, Grassley insisted that he did not expect Pence to be there when the votes were certified. Iowans deserve to know the impetus behind his statement and what exactly Grassley’s role was in the plan to overthrow our democracy and thwart the certification (1/3)

Did you not hear @Lawrence? Pence could have spoke up a month before all this happened. He didn’t. So, bye with this.

Eastman dropping Ginni Thomas emails? Ginni Thomas saying she’s happy to speak to Jan 6th committee?
Lawd, Clarence just wanted to live his life as a simple bigot. This is too much noise for him.

NO CHANCE Thomas had no idea what was going on right under his nose
He’s either complicit and/or dangerously incompetent, both of which underscore the necessity for his swift removal for the sake of our republic
He has rendered the Supreme Court a marketplace of corruption https://t.co/AnUfy0B9ZJ

What if Pence had no integrity and did exactly what Trump wanted.
We know he has no morals or principles but at least he had common sense and fulfilled his duty as the President of the Senate on 1/6/21.
He is NO HERO..but all I can think about is what if..
— Candidly Tiff 🌟 (@tify330) June 16, 2022
My view is this, Pence didn't do shit that he wasn't suppose to do, he was suppose to certify the vote period. He never came out and told folks prior to the vote that he was under a pressure campaign to send votes back to the states. #January6thHearings
