Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Justice Department prosecutors have reached out to representatives of former Vice President Mike Pence to seek his testimony in the criminal investigation into efforts by former President Donald Trump and allies to impede the transfer of power after the 2020 election, according to people familiar with the matter.



Admin's note: Participants in this discussion must follow the site's moderation policy. Profanity will be filtered. Abusive conduct is not allowed.

"Pence recently published a memoir that described some of his interactions with Trump as the former president sought to overturn the 2020 election results. The book's publication had raised anticipation that the Justice Department would likely seek information about those interactions as part of the criminal investigation.

Pence has rebuffed an interview request from the House select committee investigating January 6, but he has allowed top aides to provide testimony in the House's probe, as well as in the Justice Department's criminal investigation.

CNN previously reported that the Justice Department has successfully secured answers from top Pence advisers Greg Jacob and Marc Short in significant court victories that could make it more likely the criminal investigation reaches further into Trump's inner circle."


Can you even imagine what the Republican Primary Debates featuring Pence, DeSantis, Trump (live from house arrest in Guantanamo), Liz Cheney, and L. Boebart will look like?

If it ever comes to pass, I would really prefer a cage match between Trump and DeSantis so they can dish enough dirt to cancel each other out.

"DOJ Seeks Testimony from VP Pence "

LOL ~ Have his book sales topped out yet? Was it enough to pay for a campaign? What are the polls saying? Would Pence lose Trump's radicalized extremists? Would Trump put a contract out on his family? Would four years as a zombified bobblehead work against him? Will the DOJ have enough time to put Trump in a stranglehold? What are the odds?

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Do you live under a rock? Of course the J6 Committee cares. Pence is the missing direct link between Trump and the attempt to interfere with the peaceful transfer of power. He's the final nail in Trump's coffin when this comes to trial. He's the witness who can back up all the other indirect testimony the Committee has received from Pence's own staff.

Is Pence absolutely crucial? Probably not. The Committee and the DOJ can proceed with the evidence they have. The DOJ can close that loophole with a subpoena if they think it's necessary. But then, would Pence be a hostile witness?

The question all of us would like to ask is, why is Pence giving Trump an escape hole by refusing to cooperate with the Committee.

Could it be because Pence tried to find a way to go along with Trump's plan . . . until it became obvious, after he talked to Dan Quayle, that he, Pence, was the one who would go to prison.

All of a sudden Pence turned into a patriotic American to save democracy. Or was it to save himself?

Sooner or later, all humans learn the lesson that either they stand and tell their truth, no matter who leaves them, no matter who fires them, or they lose an important part of their brain, the part that says that they are a free elf...
Sorry, I was watching that part of Harry Potter again...

Wow! Clueless DOJ very belatedly, thinks maybe it's time to talk to the target of those trying to commit a coup here in Americs and the VP was needed to certify the election for Joe Biden so their solution? Hang him so he couldn't carry out his Constitutional duties. I have nver liked Pence but I never wanted to see him hung either, Now Putin, that's a different story, If it happens I hope they televise it worldwide.

Only people who want to get to the bottom of a fascist coup attempt.

Why do you NOT care how that happened?

Now that the midterm is over and Trump is basically worthless to the GOP establishment, I think we are going to see more former Trump suckups start spilling the beans.

"Why do you NOT care how that happened?"

I suspect it because he is one of those who claimed the insurrection was just a peaceful ptotest so he doesn't want the serious talk about the attempted coup discussed here or anywhere else. I have a family membeb who tries ro distract from discussion of serious charges being made agaibst Trump with the same taxtic.
