J6 Committee Now Expecting Mike Pence to ‘Voluntarily’ Testify


It’s been several weeks since the January 6th select committee has held a public hearing, and in the Trump-news vacuum that followed we witness an unprecedented assault on the home of the former President.

And so the nation hasn’t had much of a taste for J6 committee news, (as if they had much enthusiasm prior to the Mar-a-Lago raid), leaving many to wonder if the left had simply decided to move on to a new angle of attacking Donald Trump.

But this week, the committee appeared to make a rather large announcement about an upcoming guest…and it’s likely to turn heads.

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) on Sunday said he expects former Vice President Mike Pence to testify before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

“Vice President Pence was the target of Donald Trump’s wrath and fury and effort to overthrow the election on January 6, the whole idea was to get Pence to step outside his constitutional role, and then to declare unilateral lawless powers to reject Electoral College votes from the states,” Raskin, a member of the Jan. 6 committee, said on CBS “Face the Nation.”

“I think he has a lot of relevant evidence, and I would hope he would come forward and testify about what happened,” Raskin said.

And then:

Pressed on options to force Pence to appear before the committee, Raskin said that a subpoena isn’t out of the question for Pence or any other potential witness, “but I would assume he’s going to come forward and testify voluntarily, the way the vast majority of people have.”

Pence appears to have made a rather serious ideological split with Trump in recent weeks, and he hasn’t yet ruled out the possibility of a presidential run for himself in 2024.
