The House panel is still investigating the Capitol incursion forages for facts that it can use for possible criminal referrals against members of the Trump administration.
“Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, who chairs the Democratic-dominated panel hand-picked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, said the committee is planning to ask former Vice President Mike Pence to appear voluntarily,” according to NPR.
“Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former President Donald Trump and a White House adviser during the Trump administration, is also being considered as a possible target for the panel,” Thompson said.
Pence said an invitation for Pence to appear is likely this month.
“The vice president was put in a tough spot. The president was putting a lot of pressure on him to break the law, and he stood fast,” Thompson said. “And because of his respect for law, there were people who came to the Capitol a year ago wanting to hang him. And so, if for no other reason, our committee really needs to hear what are his opinions about what happened on Jan. 6.”
Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California said he hopes Pence will testify.
“Mike Pence knows things that only Mike Pence knows and it would be very important to completely fill out our work and I think this is one more public service that needs to be performed by the former Vice President,” he said, he said.
Pence still hasn’t come forth in public with his decision and statement regarding this.
