Pence could be DONE for 2024……
He could be a witness AGAINST Trump should the ex-President be indicted for his role in the Jan. 6 protest and violence….
The Federal judge seems to have ducked on his ruling though…..
A federal judge has decided that former Vice President Mike Pence must testify to a grand jury about conversations he had with Donald Trump leading up to January 6, 2021, according to multiple sources familiar with a recent federal court ruling.
But the judge said – in a ruling that remains under seal – that Pence can still decline to answer questions related to his actions on January 6 itself, when he was serving as president of the Senate for the certification of the 2020 presidential election, according to one of the sources.
Pence still has the ability to appeal. Trump has repeatedly lost executive privilege assertions he’s tried to make in the special counsel’s investigation.
It’s another win for special counsel Jack Smith, who is investigating the Trump-aligned effort to subvert the 2020 election. Smith subpoenaed Pence for testimony and documents earlier this year.
Days after news broke of the subpoena, Pence and his advisers indicated that the former vice president would challenge the subpoena under the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause, which shields lawmakers from certain law enforcement actions connected to their legislative duties….
Pence’s claims, as he has described them publicly, are seen as novel. His arguments attracted criticism from a broad range of legal scholars, including former Judge Michael Luttig, a conservative legal luminary who advised Pence on how he should approach the 2021 certification vote.
Even as Pence has fought the subpoena, he has stood by his refusal to disrupt the congressional certification of President Joe Biden’s win, as Trump called upon him to do.
My Name Is Jack says
Could be done?
That insinuates that he was ever a serious contender.
He never has been .
Pence WAS in 3rd Place……
Haley IS NOW…..
One of his genuine, deeply held beliefs is that democracy is bad and some form of dictatorship is preferable. He’s said this many many many times over many years.
My Name Is Jack says
“ third place.?”
Yeah in single digits!
More irrelevant minutiae from you.
LOW single digits….
She now seems to have surpassed Pence even in the polls and we KNOW Pence is a goner with singing aginst Trump….
