Mike Pence: 'I Would Consider Testifying' To Jan 6 Committee

Speaking at political breakfast event New Hampshire (yeah), former Vice President Pence told the audience he would consider testifying to January 6 committee if he was asked.

"If there was an invitation to participate, I would consider it," Pence said.

"But you've heard me mention the Constitution a few times this morning. Under the Constitution, we have three co-equal branches of government. Any invitation that would be directed at me, I would have to reflect on the unique role that was serving then as vice-president," he said.

Pence claimed it would be unprecedented to be summoned to Capitol Hill, but I'd say it's more unusual rather than unprecedented.

And we've never had a more corrupt and immoral former POTUS in many a moon.

The idea that Pence would "consider it" is interesting, since he refused to go along with the coup.

Then again, Trump inflamed his supporters to hunt down his running mate and try to hang him at the US Capitol.

It would be interesting to hear Pence, under oath, discuss Trump's attack on the US Capitol, but this could also be a ploy for some, you know, New Hampshire publicity.
