Former Vice President Mike Pence said On Wednesday that if asked to testify before the House Committee probing the US Capitol breach, he would give the request “due consideration.”

“If there was an invitation to participate, I would consider it,” he said. “It would be unprecedented in history for a vice president to be summoned to testify on Capitol Hill, but as I said, I don’t want to prejudge. If ever any formal invitation was rendered to us, we’d give it due consideration.”

  • Pence also implored fellow GOP members to stop attacking the FBI over the search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence, stressing that it was “just as wrong” as when Democrats pushed to defund police.

    “I also want to remind my fellow Republicans, we can hold the attorney general accountable for the decision he made without attacking the rank-and-file law enforcement personnel at the FBI,” Pence said citing the ongoing threats against the agency since last week’s raid.

    “The Republican Party is the party of law and order. Our party stands with the men and women who stand on the thin blue line at the federal and state and local level, and these attacks on the FBI must stop.”
