Recently it was reported that former Vice President Mike Pence, now Republican presidential primary candidate, would not be charged for having classified documents.
The former Vice President got a pass that his last boss, former President Trump is not expected to get from the deep state.
Shortly after Pence officially jumped into the Republican Primary, he did a town hall that aired on CNN and delivered a message to 1/6 defendants.
“I have no interest or no intention of pardoning those who assaulted police officers or vandalized our Capitol,” he says.

When he was asked if he would pardon Trump if he was convicted, Pence punted.
“I don’t want to speak about hypotheticals,” Pence said, adding in a joking manner: “I’m not sure I’m going to be elected president of the United States.”
The former Vice President added, “I don’t think he’s going to be the nominee.”
Currently, Pence is polling in the single digits and experts state that he isn’t even in the running.
“He’s not seen as an alternative,” said Clifford Young, president of U.S. Public Affairs at Ipsos. “He’s in the worst place possible.”
Conservative legal activists Jully Kelly – who has monitored all of the 1/6 cases – believes that all of the lower level 1/6 cases are designed for one thing.
“This is how our nation’s capitol… legal and judicial system is spending its time. Going after mostly low level misdemeanor cases… to punish Americans, to build a legal and public momentum to charge Donald Trump and others tied to him, possibly including Republican members of Congress,” she said during an interview.

The only other candidate to mention 1/6 defendants besides former President Trump is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who said he would pardon most of them and former President Trump if convicted.
