Donald Trump is under a legal attack by establishment actors working on behalf of the Democrat Party.
The DOJ’s indictments are a litmus test to see which Republican candidates will stand against corruption.
And now Mike Pence made one move that fully completed his transformation from Trump ally to conservative enemy.
Pence says he doesn’t know if Trump committed any criminal offenses
Former Vice President Mike Pence has made multiple statements on the indictments against former President Donald Trump, leaving most Trump supporters feeling very confused.
Pence has long been despised by many Trump supporters since he refused to follow Trump’s direction to halt the process of confirming the 2020 election results.
In Pence’s latest statement on the Trump indictments, he said that he was unsure that the government could actually prove wrongdoing.
“I don’t know, honestly don’t know the full case… that the government has… [and] I don’t know if taking bad advice from lawyers is a crime,” Pence told Fox News.
He said that he believes he hears “a concession that [Trump] may have gotten bad advice” when he reads “between the lines” in statements made by Trump’s team, and that the courts will decide whether charges “stand on legal merits or fall.”
Pence went on to say that he believes the Constitution should come before anyone’s interests.
Trump “demanded” that he “essentially overturn” the 2020 election
The former Vice President may have claimed that he didn’t believe Trump should be charged criminally, but he condemned Trump’s actions before January 6.
He said that Trump “demanded” he use his position as President of the Senate to “essentially overturn the election by literally rejecting votes.”
Pence’s statements were cited in the latest indictment of the former President, which could land him in prison for the rest of his life.
The indictment noted that Pence “refused to go along” with Trump, and that he had no interest in attempting to “fraudulently alter the election results.”
Pence has said that he “had no authority” to reject the votes and send them back to the states for a second look.
He went on to slam Trump, saying that “anyone who puts themselves over the Constitution should never be President of the United States.”
Pence added that if he’s chosen by the American people to lead in 2024, he will “keep faith with the Constitution.”
Pence declares that “history will hold Donald Trump accountable”
Pence pointed to recent actions by the Biden Department of Justice and said that he does believe things are getting out of control with the Biden regime.
He said that he believes “there has been weaponization at the Justice Department…”
He added that he and Trump “lived through it” during their administration, but then brought Trump back to the center of the conversation.
He said that “at the end of the day, history will hold Donald Trump accountable for his reckless words and actions” on January 6.
Pence vowed to “always stand by the truth of that and make sure the American people know why I did what I did.”
But he will have a hard time getting the American people to stand by him if he chooses to not defend Donald Trump from the “weaponization” he has “lived through” firsthand.
