Pence Rushes To Trump’s Defense

Former Vice President Mike Pence has criticized the decision for a special counsel to be appointed to overlook the Justice Department’s investigation into President Trump. He has also added that the decision was “very troubling” and that whether or not he would cooperate with any investigations would depend on his legal team’s advice.

Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday appointed former Justice Department official Jack Smith to act as special counsel overlooking the criminal probe into the presidential records found in Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. Smith is also set to oversee the DOJ’s probe into the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

While giving an interview to Fox News Digital in Las Vegas, Nevada, Pence blasted the Justice Department for being politically driven when it comes to Trump. He added that having a special counsel appointed is also “very troubling”. He continued to say that while there should not be anyone who is above the law, he does not believe that taking your lawyer’s bad advice is against it.

Pence also pointed to the DOJ’s “politicization”, noting that the Trump-Russia investigation which saw “FBI agents falsifying documents”. Trump’s entire presidency was overshadowed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Trump’s campaign and any potential influence that Russia might have had in the 2016 presidential election. Following two years of investigation, there was no evidence to support any form of a criminal conspiracy between Trump and Russian officials.

Pence also added that it was “deeply troubled” for Justice Department senior leaders to agree to a search warrant against the former President of the United States. This was in reference to the FBI raid into Mar-a-Lago in August.

  1. LISTEN UP….GOD’S Blessing is still with PREZ TRUMP. TRUMP shall Surely Become a TRUMPET. Behold…the Trumpet of GOD. GOD Rules over MEN. HE has the LAST WORD. From SamuraiQueen aka CHIAKIA. 😄😄😄😇😇😇😉😉😉

  2. With all of Trump’s lies and continually looking for what is best for him and not the people of the USA or even his family, I don’t understand Pence’s positioning. Other than he is not much better than Trump and is not what this country needs in a leader.

    • I noticed that you never mentioned all of Biden’s lies along with Pelosi and the thief Obama!
      If your going to go after one, go after all of them!

    • What lies ? I think you mean Lying Biden who is the worst president EVER AND DOING HIS BEST TO DESTROY THIS COUNTRY, wake up!

    • trumps lies???? In 6 yrs they still can’t find anything wrong. lies are from FBI, Biden (including his lies about not knowing anything about idiot son) lies about Border, I could go on and on.

    • Trump was the best president we ever had. The Trump economy was booming right before Covid hit. Besides, nobody lies as much as Bidum. Everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie, like we had 0 inflation, when everybody knows its at 8% at least. The border is closed, that’s another one. Denies his energy policies and over the top spending is what is causing inflation. Bidum is a disaster.

    • What a brainwashed litle moronic sheeple you are, blinded by your hatred for Trump over the good of the American people.

    • Mr. Davis, you state “all of Trump’s lies,” yet I doubt you can list even five or one?! You also state Trump only looks out for what’s good for him and his family???? Under Trumps administration and policies we had a 50 year record high economy and like a 2% unemployment rate! That hasn’t happened in over 5 decades.

      Additionally, we had a 40 year record low illegal immigration crossing of our border. The Border Director stated that the Border has never been this secure in his 40-years of being a border patrol agent! Under Trump, law enforcement officers were respected and crime was down. There were no wars and the Russia/Ukraine war would never have happened under Trump nor would Iran firing on our military bases. China wouldn’t be acting up, threatening to invade Taiwan! How about Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan! Enough said!

      Ultimately, Trump definitely fulfilled his campaign promises he made to his voters and even accomplished more, even with all the criminal BS the Democratic Communist Party and. Their complicit fake news media outlets and Big Tech CEO’s making false allegations!

    • Trump was not a presidential person but he did do a lot for the people in the USA. What has Biden done besides shutting down our energy solutions and sending oil to the mid-east and buying oil back. This is why our energy is so high. Keep in mind, this administration has stock in electric vehicles

    • what actual EVIDENCE do you have regarding Trump? You can not like him but spreading lies and Bullshit about someone just because of how you feel is a PUSSY way to handle things. Grow up or show the EVIDENCE. What if someone spread lies and shit about YOU. Would you still think you have the right to slander someone else without PROOF. I dont care what Don Lemonhead says. YOU need to research your information. You can dislike someone all you want but you cant go around badmouthing someone just on how YOU feel.

  3. It is very unfortunate that former vice president is just coming out to criticise the Justice department for appointing special counsel to investigate former president of all his wrong doings. Why did the former president refused to answer to all the subpoenas. The whole Americans are watching you all. We the people are guided under the same constitution of the United States.

  4. I agree wholeheartedly with VP Pence. What they have already done to Trump is a travesty of Justice. Merrick Garland and Chris Wray have to resign or be impeached. They have politicized and attacked President Trump at every turn. Democrats are egregious with lies and fabrications. The media is complicit with all that Biden says and lies about. This country is in deep trouble with Biden and democrats at the helm

    • Totally agree , look at what the Democrats have done to the job market,killed the oil industry,steel workers, loggers, trucking etc. They want to teach our children weird stuff in school,the old way worked

  5. Trump is the only President who, facing all the attacks against him, accomplished so much for the working population and the country. Anyone who does not recognize the obvious is either an idiot or has succumbed to the brainwashing of the dims.

  6. Merrick Garland , more than anything else, is deeply resentful, that he is not on the Supreme Court. He holds Trump responsible and is using the power of his office to persecute him.

  7. What a disappointment Mike Pence turned out to be. Pence waited entirely way too long to be vocal about Biden’s weaponized DOJ / FBI and the level of criminal corruption they were willing to do to get Trump!

    How many times have we seen the anti- American Democratic Nationalist Communist Nazicrat Party members make these BS claims against President Trump! At what point does President Trump and his family have rights against these bogus, alleged crimes and harassment. Minus the idiotic leftist mob mentality, how many times does Trump as well as the American people have to put up with this. It’s not as though conservatives have a political party that will investigate and hold these crazy left wing azzwhole’s accountable!!!

    McConnell is Bidens ace in the hole.

    • TRM, exactly how long have you been an ignorant liberal democrat? Obama and Biden started the politicization and weaponization of the DOJ, FBI, CIA, ATF… ..Dumb Biden was too stupid to figure out how to do it, so he continued doing it after he stole the 2020 election!

      I think you’re a total hypocrite and you seem to have amnesia of the Russian hoax and phony 1st impeachment attempt, the bs Ukraine call and attempted 2nd impeachment, Maralago raid by Biden, AG-Garland, and the politically weaponized DOJ and FBI !! The Entire Biden Administration, including Biden’s crime family are all corrupt and traitors! Moreover the Democratic National Nazicrat Party is destroying our country with this bs “New Liberal World Order!”

  9. Maybe the media should come out with how many trips Obama made to Jeffery Epstein island, or better yet look up why they call him Bath House Barry , and his connections to the Low Down Club. Sick but interesting reading , Also on the trip list was papa Joe and his druggie son. We all know both loves little girls, The FBI covered up the dead bodies of children that died on the Island , along with some of the most disgusting child abuse in history . Our FBI and DOJ with AG Garland is so corrupt by the Dems money it would take cleaning out the whole Agency .

    • TRM, it’s blatantly obvious that you have no understanding of what criminal law is. There’s a few other poster’s like you on these sites, (Chris & Bill), who are as horribly uninformed, misinformed, and ignorant as you are.

      It’s apparent you are uninformed by the Democratic Nationalist Nazicrat Party’s complicit fake news media outlets. What is embarrassing for you is that you don’t learn from your habitual mistakes, which makes you a liberal Democrat, and you continually get onto these sites and make a complete azz out of your self.
