    A former Situation Room officer said former Vice President Mike Pence came “close” to being killed on Jan. 6, 2021, during the riot at the U.S. Capitol.

    “It’s important to me that we don’t forget that it did come that close, and that we did have discussions, ‘If we lose the [vice president,] if the 25th [Amendment] is invoked,’” Mike Stiegler said in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “We started running through all of these game plans because it was getting close.”

    Stiegler also agreed with Stephanopoulos when he referred to the Jan. 6. riot as one “of our own people” and “inspired” by Trump.

    “But at the time, that’s not even in the forefront of our mind,” Stiegler continued. “It doesn’t matter how we got here. We’re here. How do we execute? How do we move forward?”

    Pence faced threats of violence on Jan. 6 for refusing to overturn the 2020 election. He was at the Capitol when rioters broke in and was taken to an underground loading dock amid the attack, according to the Secret Service.

    In March, Pence said that he will not endorse his former boss, saying he was “incredibly proud” of the Trump administration’s record, but “there were profound differences between me and President Trump on a range of issues.” 

    “In each of these cases, Donald Trump is pursuing and articulating an agenda that is at odds with the conservative agenda that we governed on during our four years,” Pence said. “And that’s why I cannot in good conscience endorse Donald Trump in this campaign.”


    1. Pence has been dead since 5/15/21. Executed for pedophilia – raping nearly 200 little boys and murdering many of them.

    2. Pence is no longer relevant. It is obvious he has an issue with Trump and should be classified as a rino who wants to pretend he has some principles. That is a joke. Pence is going no where and his opinions are not important. Why is this news anywhere? He and his views are not of import nor without vicious intent since he refused to acknowledge that the election was one big cheat and would have been easy to prove at that point in time.

      The man deliberately ignored his duty and sided with the cheats. No guts, no real intent to safe guard the vote, and now he is trying to judge a man who has guts and the intent to safe guard our votes and take back our country from the liberal left who are ruining the US deliberately.

      With all the illegals trying to vote that are all over the US now and literally destroying the legal voting within this country from within. Yup good job Pence! I want to congratulate you for your assistance to Joe Biden and the now clear agenda to add 7 million or more new illegal aliens to the vote for Joe! And they will vote, are being encouraged to do so even through it really is against the law.
