WASHINGTON-Donald Trump suggested that Mike Pence could be blamed for the Jan. 6 violence, saying “In many ways” it could be attributed to him.

Donald Trump intensified his rift with former Vice President Mike Pence by attributing the Jan. 6, 2021 violence to him, citing his refusal to comply with Trump’s request to overturn the 2020 election results, which may have been unlawful.

According to The Washington Post, Donald Trump stated on Monday while en route to a campaign event in Iowa that Mike Pence could be held responsible for the Jan. 6 events in several ways.

When asked about Mike Pence, who had deemed the request improper and unlawful, Donald Trump retaliated and criticized him in response. Pence had expressed his disapproval of the former president during a weekend dinner attended by prominent Washington journalists and dignitaries.

At the Gridiron dinner, Mike Pence reiterated that Donald Trump’s actions were incorrect, stating that he did not possess the authority to overturn the election results. Pence also expressed concern for the safety of his family and those at the Capitol during the violent events of Jan. 6, and believed that history would judge Trump accordingly.

Mike Pence’s stance on the matter is that history will ultimately hold Donald Trump accountable for the events of Jan. 6. Pence further reprimanded Trump for putting his family in danger.

Mike Pence’s stance on the matter is that history will hold Donald Trump accountable for the events of Jan. 6. He criticized Trump for recklessly putting both his family and others in danger.

The relationship between Mike Pence and Donald Trump has become even more intricate with the issuance of a subpoena.

Both Donald Trump’s requests and the events of Jan. 6 insurrection are being investigated by a special counsel within the Justice Department, which also involves the former president and Mike Pence.

The special counsel has issued a subpoena for Mike Pence to provide testimony regarding Jan. 6. Lawyers representing both Pence and Trump are attempting to invalidate the subpoena, arguing that confidential discussions between a president and vice president should not be disclosed to prosecutors.

On Jan. 6, 2021, as part of his role as vice president, Mike Pence oversaw the formal tallying of the electoral votes that resulted in the election of President Joe Biden.

Donald Trump made unfounded and inaccurate allegations of electoral fraud, and requested that Mike Pence discard the electoral votes from particular states won by Biden, with the aim of reversing the election outcome in Trump’s favor.

Mike Pence asserted that he did not have the legal power to nullify electoral votes, citing the consensus among constitutional scholars.

Donald Trump employed comparable tactics to coerce officials in other states that had voted for Joe Biden. His actions in Georgia are currently being scrutinized as part of a grand jury investigation in Atlanta.

Even two years after the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, Donald Trump remains burdened by numerous investigations surrounding the incident.

When asked about Mike Pence’s comments made during his Gridiron speech, Donald Trump retorted to reporters on his way to Iowa by stating that if Pence had returned the votes to the state legislatures, there would have been no issue with Jan. 6, thus, in some ways, holding Pence responsible for the events of that day.

According to Trump, if he had sent back the electors to Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Arizona, he believes there would have been a different outcome and the events of January 6th would not have occurred.

Pence stated that the events of the Capitol breach would never have occurred, and attributed the endangerment of people’s lives, including himself and his family, to Trump’s public remarks on the matter.

During his Gridiron speech, Pence made it clear that the events of that day were a disgrace and it is inappropriate to depict it in any other manner as it goes against the principles of decency.
