Capitol Assault: Mike Pence could be summoned

In a televised hearing on Thursday, the parliamentary committee detailed the many pressures exerted by former President Donald Trump on his Vice President Mike Pence in an attempt to prevent him from certifying Joe’s victory. Biden to the presidency, January 6, 2021.

“There are still some key people we haven’t interviewed yet, and we’d love to interview,” Adam Schiff told CNN on Sunday. Asked about Mike Pence’s subpoena, he said, “It’s definitely a possibility.”

“We do not rule out anything or anyone at this time,” he said, adding that he could not “reveal what private conversations were or were not taking place with regard to certain individuals.”

On January 6, the procedure for certifying the results of the presidential election before Congress was in principle a mere formality. But President Trump had tried to force his hand on his right arm to block the process.

Mike Pence had finally issued a letter stating that he did not have the powers to do so. At the same time, pro-Trump protesters were beginning to crowd around Congress – images that were circulating around the world.

A “hero”

“On that day, he was a hero in resisting all pressure campaigns,” House of Representatives Jamie Raskin, a Democrat in the House of Representatives and a member of the commission of inquiry, told NBC on Sunday.

The next public hearings of this commission are to take place on Tuesday and Thursday in the middle of the day. On Tuesday, the new session will focus on pressures on local elected officials in some states, including Georgia, when counting votes.

Nearly 6 in 10 Americans (58%) believe Donald Trump should be prosecuted for his role in the Jan. 6 attack, according to an ABC News / Ipsos poll released Sunday. That figure is up from 52 percent of Americans reporting it in April, before the commission’s inquiry began. But only 9% of Americans say they follow these hearings closely, according to the same poll.
