Jan. 6 hearing revelations: Trump called Pence a ‘wimp’ as VP resisted ‘pressure campaign’ to overturn election

Jan 6 hearing: Trump called Pence a ‘wimp,’ Eastman sought pardon

Donald Trump pressured Mike Pence to execute a legal theory that even his top aides didn’t believe in to overturn the 2020 election in his favor. The Jan. 6 committee said that put Pence in danger.

  • Fox News host texted Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows that he was “very worried” day before attack.
  • Top Trump advisors, including Rudy Giuliani, admitted Pence didn’t have power to reject votes.
  • Pence “never budged” in position that he could not overturn the election, his former counsel said.
  • Trump lawyer John Eastman pleaded the fifth “100 times.”

WASHINGTON — House members of the committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol detailed Thursday how former President Donald Trump relentlessly pressured his vice president, Mike Pence, to execute a debunked legal theory to reject the results of the 2020 election despite Pence informing him it would be unconstitutional.
