Former Vice President Mike Pence finally showed his true colors during an event in New Hampshire.
“Calls to defund the FBI are just as wrong as calls to defund the police,” Pence said, adding that he is considering testifying before the 1/6 committee.
“If there was an invitation to participate, I would consider it,” Pence said at the New England Council and Saint Anselm College’s “Politics & Eggs” event.
“I would have to reflect on the unique role that I was serving as vice president,” Pence continued. “It would be unprecedented in history for the vice president to be summoned to testify on Capitol Hill. But, as I said, I don’t want to prejudge ever any formal invitation rendered to us.”
“The American people have a right to know what happened,” Pence said. “And in the months and years ahead, I’ll be telling my story even more frequently.”
After that, Pence listed off the accomplishments of the “Trump-Pence administration” and then urged Republicans to focus on the midterms.
“We need to do more than criticize and complain,” Pence said. “We need to unite our movement around the bold, optimistic agenda that will give real solutions to the American people.”
Pence then tried to play both sides of the ball.
“There’s no question from Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump we have had our share of big personalities in this party, and I expect we will again,” Pence said. “But I must tell you, when I spoke to crowds large and small across this country, it was the ideas that created the roar, it was the commitment to those American values that brought people out.”
If you’re pro-law enforcement, you should also be pro-defunding the FBI, as it’s an unaccountable secret police force infamous for harboring criminals, framing the innocent w/ crimes, ignoring actual security threats, and sabotaging U.S. elections https://t.co/TYaBAqFDhL
