Coward Mike Pence protected Trump, now he is enjoying 1/6 Patriot
Mike Pence refused to testify before the 1/6 Committee and he had to be coerced into testifying by a judge before the inquest of Jack Smith’s special counsel, but now that he’s running for President, Pence, 1/6 Patriot is trying to play.
Mike Pence, when officially announcing his presidential campaign, said:
January 6th was a tragic day in the life of our nation. But thanks to the courage of law enforcement, the violence was quelled and we reconvened Congress that same day to complete the work of the American people under the United States Constitution. As I have said many times, President Trump’s words on that fateful day were reckless.
You endangered my family and everyone in the Capitol. But the American people deserve to know that that day, President Trump also asked me to choose between him and the Constitution. Now voters face the same choice. I chose the Constitution. And I always will.
Mike Pence was asked to appear before the 1/6 Committee. He didn’t do this. Mike Pence had to be ordered by a judge to testify before the grand jury of Special Counsel Jack Smith Investigating Trump and the Capitol Attack.
If Mike Pence was a hero, he would have spoken up before the 1/6 attack. A heroic Vice President would have stepped in front of the cameras after the attack on the Capitol and told his story. Pence should have voluntarily testified before the 1/6 Committee and the Special Counsel’s Grand Jury.
Mike Pence did none of that. He wanted to say something until he was a presidential candidate. Pence is not a patriot. He’s a political opportunist hoping the attack on the Capitol will lead him to the Oval Office.
