That was a second that stood out for lots of people when Michael van Der Veen stated throughout this impeachment trial as we speak that at no level did Donald Trump know Mike pence was in peril on January sixth when he was rushed out of the hazard by Secret Service, that’s not the case. We all know that’s not the case.
I talked with an in depth supply to the president that stated that’s not the case or that’s not true. After I requested whether or not or not Michael van Der Veen was mendacity when he stated that in this trial, this supply near the vice chairman stated sure. Now, I’ll inform you, Anderson, aides to the previous vice chairman are fuming over President Trump’s actions that day. They imagine he didn’t do sufficient to guarantee that vice chairman pence and his household had been secure as they had been basically being rushed from hazard on that day and it sounds as if due to what Michael van Der Veen stated, there are lingering onerous emotions and perhaps a few of these are hardening tonight.
Folks near Pence are nonetheless furious with Trump for his conduct and if folks near the previous VP aren’t joyful, it’s a secure wager that Pence can also be not happy. Pence goes to run for the Republican nomination in 2024, so he isn’t going to publicly burn Trump and his supporters, however he can get revenge by ensuring that phrase will get out that Trump and his attorneys lied on the impeachment trial.
