Leaked audio reveals Trump defended calls to ‘hang Mike Pence’

Former President Donald Trump defended the Jan. 6 rioters who called for then-Vice President Pence to be hanged, a newly released audio reveals.

The audio excerpt, released by ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl, is from a 90-minute interview Karl conducted with Trump in March of this year.

“Were you worried about him during that siege? Were you worried about his safety?” Karl asks Trump in the clip.

“No, I thought he was well-protected, and I had heard that he was in good shape. No. Because I had heard he was in very good shape. But, but, no, I think…” Trump says before Karl interjects.

“Because you heard those chants — that was terrible. I mean—” Karl says.

“He could have — well, the people were very angry,” Trump says.

“They were saying ‘hang Mike Pence,’” Karl says.

“Because it’s common sense, Jon,” Trump says. “It’s common sense that you’re supposed to protect. How can you — if you know a vote is fraudulent, right? — how can you pass on a fraudulent vote to Congress?”

Karl said that additional excerpts from his interview would be reported during Sunday’s This Week on ABC.

Trump responds to Pence’s Jan. 6 comments

Former President Trump praised former Vice President Mike Pence for his critiques of the media’s coverage of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

“I know the media wants to distract from the Biden administration’s failed agenda by focusing on one day in January,” Pence told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday. “They want to use that one day to try and demean the character and intentions of 74 million Americans who believed we could be strong again and prosperous again and supported our administration in 2016 and 2020.”

Pence also said that he and Trump “parted amicably” and have “talked a number of times since we both left office.”

“Vice President Mike Pence’s statement during his interview with the great Sean Hannity very much destroys and discredits the Unselect Committees Witch Hunt on the events of January 6th,” Trump said in a statement. “It will continue anyways, however, because the Fake News doesn’t want to focus on Afghanistan, Russia, Taiwan and China, the Border, inflation, and a failing economy.”

Trump’s apparent embrace of Pence is notable given their public rift over challenging the 2020 presidential election results.

Pence gives an update on where he stands with Trump

Former Vice President Mike Pence said he “parted amicably” with former President Trump at the end of their respective terms in January.

Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Pence about his relationship with the former commander in chief amid their disagreements over Jan. 6.

“Look, you can’t spend almost five year in a political foxhole with somebody without developing a strong relationship,” Pence said. He went on to acknowledge that Jan. 6 “was a tragic day in the history of our country.”

“The president and I sat down a few days later and talked through all of it,” Pence said. “I can tell you that we parted amicably at the end of the administration and we have talked a number of times since we both left office.”

The former VP said he’s focused on the future, on helping the GOP gain House and Senate seats in 2022.

“For our part, I truly believe we all ought to remain completely focused on the future,” Pence said. “That’s where I’m focused.”

Pence blasts Biden’s vaccine mandates: ‘Unlike anything I’ve ever heard’

Former Vice President Mike Pence blasted President Biden’s newly announced COVID-19 vaccine mandates, saying the announcement was “unlike anything I have ever heard from an American president.”

“To have the president of the United States say that he’s been patient, but his patience is wearing thin, that’s not how the American people expect to be spoken to by our elected leaders,” Pence told Fox & Friends on Friday.

“The president should simply continue, as we have done, to lead by example. Encourage people to take the vaccine, as Karen and I did on national television back in December,” he continued.

On Thursday, Biden announced that all private employers with 100 or more employees must require COVID-19 vaccination or daily testing for workers.

“We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin, and the refusal has cost all of us. So please do the right thing,” Biden said. “This is not about freedom or personal choice.”

Pence pushed back on Friday, saying, “it’s exactly about freedom.”

“Now to have a president not just scolding the American people, but governors around the country, it’s just not the American way,” Pence said.

Pence Rebukes Trump Over Election Claims

I hope you had a nice weekend Americans,

Former vice president Mike Pence recently rebuked Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Congress confirmed the election result shortly after the January 6 insurrection on the US Capitol. “I will always be proud that we did our part on that tragic day to reconvene the Congress and fulfilled our duty under the constitution and the laws of the United States,” Pence said in a speech in California. “The truth is, there is almost no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president.”

In further Trump-related news, Manhattan prosecutors are considering filing charges against his company, the Trump Organization. The New York Times reported that charges could be filed as early as this week related to fringe benefits the company gave to top executives, such as use of apartments, cars and school tuition. “The charges are absolutely outrageous and unprecedented, if indeed the charges are filed. This is just to get back at Donald Trump,” said Trump Organization lawyer Ron Fischetti. “We’re going to plead not guilty and we’ll make a motion to dismiss.”

In Tennessee, police arrested two people for allegedly shooting up a Burger King after an argument over a spicy chicken sandwich. Following the altercation with employees, Tavarus McKinney and Keona Halliburton left the fast-food restaurant and returned, firing multiple shots from the road into the parking lot. Two people were shot. McKinney and Halliburton were charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder and four counts of employment of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Amazon and Google are being investigated by British regulators for potentially breaking consumer law by not removing fake product reviews. “Our worry is that millions of online shoppers could be misled by reading fake reviews and then spending their money based on those recommendations,” said UK Competition and Markets Authority chief executive Andrea Coscelli. Both companies said they would cooperate with the CMA inquiry.

A blood test that’s capable of detecting more than 50 kinds of cancer has been approved to roll out as a screening test for those at higher risk, including asymptomatic patients age 50 or older. The test, Galleri, is now available in the US by prescription only. A blood sample is taken and then analyzed for DNA that tumors shed into the bloodstream. Then, genomic sequencing and machine learning are used to further detect cancer-suggesting abnormalities. Results are made available within 10 business days.

Lastly, the Justice Department is suing the state of Georgia over its new voting law, citing its intention to specifically restrict ballot access of black voters. “Our complaint alleges that recent changes to Georgia’s election laws were enacted with the purpose of denying or abridging the right of Black Georgians to vote on account of their race or color, in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act,” said Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Be well,
