Mike Pence says ‘check his tweets’ doubling down that Trump told him to ignore the Constitution on January 6


Mike Pence insists Donald Trump ordered him to ignore the Constitution by blocking certification of election results in January 2021 after the ex-president pushed back on claims this week.

The former vice president said to ‘check his tweets’ and it would prove Trump was trying to get Pence to go against his constitutional responsibilities – he also said it was true he was told that he was “too honest”.

Pence said he “hopes” special counsel David Weiss, who has just been assigned to the Hunter Biden case, performs his duties fairly as Republicans continue to criticize the Justice Department for biased surveys.

The former vice president had a bit of a hard time at the Iowa State Fair this week when he was met by hecklers and fairgoers who called him a “traitor.” But otherwise, the 2024 hopeful and his wife and former second lady Karen Pence were one of the biggest names to grace the fair this year and met with good size around the fairgrounds.

Former Vice President Mike Pence said Sunday morning that Donald Trump’s January 6, 2021 tweets prove he pushed for him to ignore the Constitution by blocking election certification.

“Donald Trump said this week that he never asked you not to uphold the Constitution and he never said you were being too honest. Are either of those things true? NBC News host Chuck Todd asked during a Meet the Press interview on Sunday morning.

“Well listen, you can check out his tweets,” Pence replied. “I mean, the president was pretty clear and pretty public that he thought I had the authority to reject or return votes to the state.”

According to a bombshell third indictment released earlier this month by special counsel Jack Smith, Trump told Pence “you’re being too honest” when he said he had no authority to cancel the 2020 presidential election.

The 45-page federal indictment reveals new details, including that Trump boasted of “winning every state” amid his efforts to overturn Biden’s victory.

“Bottom line – won every state by 100,000 votes,” Trump said, according to Pence’s contemporary notes, which he turned over to federal prosecutors.

While Pence on Sunday morning dodged questions about whether he was a so-called “MAGA Republican,” he agreed that Trump was being treated unfairly by President Joe Biden’s Justice Department.

“I’m running for president because I think this country has a lot of problems,” he told Todd. “I think Joe Biden has weakened America at home and abroad. But, frankly, the Justice Department model during our four years in the White House, and since then, has undermined public confidence in equal treatment under the law.

He said a special counsel is needed for the investigation into Hunter Biden’s shady foreign trade deals, but fears it will not be conducted fairly by the Democratic-led Department of Justice (DOJ).

“While I welcome the appointment of a special adviser,” he added, “I also take comfort in the fact that Congress will continue to do its job.”

“The American people have a right to know whether or not President Biden’s family benefited or whether he himself benefited when he served in the position I held as Vice President of the United States in some way. financial status of foreign nationals.”

Former President Donald Trump also visited the Iowa State Fair on Saturday and encountered a barrage of supporters following him around the fairgrounds.

Pence concluded with, “I hope Special Counsel Weiss does his job without fear or favor, but I am confident that Jim Jordan, Congressman Comer and others will continue to do their jobs for the American people. “

The DOJ terminated the latest agreement with Hunter after negotiations between prosecutors and the president’s son’s attorneys failed. That means Hunter could likely face a criminal trial on charges he hoped would have been resolved with a “honey” plea deal.

Furious Republicans claimed the appointment of Special Counsel Weiss to oversee the probe was an attempt to block their own investigation into the Biden family’s shady business deals.

Attorney General Merrick Garland made the shock announcement at a press conference on Friday, a sign that the walls of the president’s son are closing in.

The appointment is a move by Garland to undermine claims by Republicans and IRS whistleblowers that U.S. Attorney David Weiss does not have full authority and is being led by the Biden administration.
