Political Prepper

Pence Throws Trump Under The Bus

Pence is playing with fire.

Former Vice President Mike Pence sparked controversy yet again after he claimed that he believed the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) clarification for their previously used term “legitimate political discourse” for Republican reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.

Pence explained that he believed the committee made it clear it was not about the people involved in the Jan 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol.

According to The Hill, Pence’s comments came during a speech he gave at Stanford University. Pence was asked what his thoughts were after the RNC’s resolution stated that Cheney and Kinzinger were taking part in the “persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse” by sitting on the committee.

Pence stated, “Let me just say plainly, Jan. 6 was a tragic day. But because of the courage of Capitol Hill police officers and federal law enforcement, we quelled the violence. We reconvened the Congress and we completed the people’s work under the Constitution and the laws of the United States the very same day.”

Pence the noted that he believed that the RNC was not condoning the violence of Jan 6th.

“I think they made a very clear statement after the fact that said we were talking about what’s happening in Washington today with the Jan. 6 Committee. They maintained, and I believe them, they were not talking about people that engaged in violence against persons or property that day, that they were speaking about a whole range of people that have been set upon by this committee,” Pence added.

“And I believe them, they’re good people. And I believe that’s what they meant,” he added.

The RNC recently voted to censure both Cheney and Kinzinger after they turned their backs on Trump following the Jan 6th protest.
