Pence Speaks Out: “History Will Hold Donald Trump Accountable” for January 6th Attack

Former Vice President Mike Pence has spoken out regarding the events surrounding January 6th, when a mob of Trump supporters breached the US Capitol building. In an interview with CNN, Pence stated that “history will hold Donald Trump accountable” for what happened that day. He went on to say that the former President played a major role in inciting the violence, and that he endangered Pence and his family.

These comments come as Pence begins to weigh a potential presidential bid in 2024, with some speculating that he may try to distance himself from Trump’s legacy. However, his criticisms of the former President may also make it difficult for him to appeal to Trump’s supporters.

Trump has remained relatively quiet on the matter, aside from claiming that he bears no responsibility for the attack. Meanwhile, investigations continue into the individuals and groups involved in planning and carrying out the assault on the Capitol. Pence’s statements may serve as a reminder of the continued questions and controversies surrounding the events of January 6th.
