"It's a Very High Risk Precedent," says Mike Pence's former Chief of Staff concerning Pence Testifying in front of the Committee
The committee has pondered asking Pence and Trump to testify...
Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff claims it would be a “very high-risk precedent” to have the former Vice President testify in front of the House committee investigating the January 6th Capitol Riots.
"I think that for the committee there should be a reflection and an appreciation that there is real separation, and basically a balance of power, here, but there's also I think a precedent that's of great concern.
If you're going to begin having former vice presidents come under subpoena to testify, there is a former vice president who sits in the oval office today and I'm sure when Republicans take control of Congress in November they'll be those who want to have investigations into the Biden family's discussions in Ukraine, what Hunter Biden was doing."
Marc Short said.
Adam Kinzinger says the panel is considering asking Pence as well as Donald Trump to testify in front of the Committee.
"Do you want a precedent where all of a sudden you're allowed to bring former vice presidents to talk about what they were doing when they were vice president, in the Congress to talk about their conversations with the president of the United States?"
Marc Short asked.
