Character witnesses say they were surprised by CT man's alleged involvement in Capitol mob (Feb 11, 2021)

...Now, as friends and family push for McCaughey's release, a new, contradictory picture emerges. Here, two Patrick McCaugheys appear: the one who allegedly crushed a police officer between two doors with a stolen riot shield, and Pat, the young man who quietly helps his community and never got in trouble.

Pence Distances Himself From Trump Over Jan. 6 Insurrection

...Former Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday night that he doubts that he and former President Donald Trump will ever see "eye to eye" over the Jan. 6 insurrection led by a mob of pro-Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol.

In a speech to a Republican group in New Hampshire, Pence called Jan. 6 "a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol, but thanks to the swift action of the Capitol Police and federal law enforcement, violence was quelled, the Capitol was secured and that same day, we reconvened the Congress and did our duty under the Constitution and the laws of the United States."

Pence was at the Capitol that day to oversee the counting of electoral votes, a normally ceremonial task that was interrupted by the Trump supporters, some of whom shouted "Hang Mike Pence," and forced lawmakers and the vice president to evacuate.

"President Trump and I have spoken many times since we've left office, and I don't know if we'll ever see eye to eye on that day," Pence said, "but I will always be proud of what we accomplished for the American people over the last four years."...

... I don't know if we'll ever see eye to eye on that day, ...

Fmr VP Pence would be crazy if he ever did see eye-to-eye with fmr Pres Trump regarding Jan 6.

Fmr Pres Trump incited a crowd to, among other things, go after and look to hang fmr VP Pence.
