The former Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, has said that history will hold Donald Trump responsible for his role behind the attack on Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021.
“Donald Trump was wrong, I had no authority to manipulate the results of the election,” he said speaking to reporters during the annual Gradeiron Dinner in Washington, DC.
“Donald Trump’s irresponsible words put the lives of my family, me, and everyone in the Capitol Hill building that day in danger, and I know that history will hold Donald Trump accountable,” he said.
Mike Pence, vice president under Donald Trump, added, “What happened that day was a disgrace, a mockery of our decency. I will not forget the courage of the enforcement officers.
Mike Pence was present at the time of the attack on Capitol Hill when thousands of Donald Trump supporters stormed the building to prevent Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Mike Pence was there presiding over a formal meeting to approve the votes of the Electoral College to fulfill his constitutional role as President of the Senate.
During the siege on Capitol Hill, Donald Trump tweeted false claims of voter fraud from his account, urging Republican supporters to “fight back” while criticizing Mike Pence for confirming the results.
