Schiff: Pence Won’t Testify Before January 6 Committee Because ‘He Doesn’t Want to Alienate the Trump Base’

Jeff Poor 22 Nov 2022

Monday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claimed former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to testify for the soon-to-be-defunct January 6 Committee because he was going to run for president and did not want to “alienate” the so-called Trump base.

“Why do you think he’s wrong when he says Congress has no right to his testimony?” MSNBC host Chris Hayes said.

“Because it’s — you know, at its base, the most basic, it’s not about what Congress has a right to — indeed, we do have a right to his testimony,” Schiff replied. “It’s what is his responsibility to the public and to the country. Former presidents have come and testified before Congress, certainly, a former vice president can.”

“But as you say, no, it’s more important for him to sell his book,” he continued. “It’s really basically his following the John Bolton model. I can’t come in to testify before Congress for some fictitious reason, but I can put it all in a book and make money from it. You know, look, we have to view everything Mike Pence says and does right now through the prism of two things, he wants to run for president. He doesn’t want to alienate the Trump base any more than he has to. And this is his way of walking that line.

But it really is a disservice to the country. And for him to parade this as some kind of a sanctimonious decision that they have no right to my testimony doesn’t, of course, answer the question, does he have a responsibility to the country? Certainly, if he wanted to testify, he could. And he is withholding that from the American people.

  • I don't believe in if anymore, if's an illusion.
Really, Pence won't testify before the J6 kangaroo court because he doesn't want to alienate the Trump base that wouldn't vote for him anyway? If Pence is so concerned about it than why is he bad mouthing and accusing Trump of trying to make him violate the constitution on every liberal media outlet that will have him. So once again this is just the Schiffter spouting schifft.

  • ELECTION INTEGRITY IS A MUST!!!
Pence is a traitor and a loser. He'll certainly be a GOPe contender for '24.
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
    I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

Hold it, the Trump faithful now take the word of Schiff as gospel... odd since this was the VP their hero Trump hand picked (only the best)... basically the only thing Pence did his whole term was nod what standing nearly at attention when Trump talked and didn't contest the election results.

Perhaps Pence ticked off the fan base when he admitted he likes to honor his wife by not doing meetings with other women without others being around to prevent gossip (hurt his marriage w/ scandal rumors). I actually admired that to be honest.

Position wise I think Pence is for the most part is luke-warm and likes to play the part of being a conservative without committing to actually fighting for any issue that might soot his pearly white gloves. He was perfect for the position of populist puppet.

But whatever you thought of him (if you even bothered to think twice about someone that didn't mind being a doormat for Trump).... Pence for the most part knew how to weasel talk himself out of a corner, so I doubt that Schiff (the liar) can be trusted to paint an accurate assessment of his refusal to appear before the clown committee.
