Former Vice President Mike Pence had some harsh words for Donald Trump during Saturday night's Gridiron Club Dinner in Washington.

“President Trump was wrong. I had no right to overturn the election, and his reckless words endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol that day. And I know that history will hold Donald Trump accountable for his actions.”

  • Pence also addressed right-wing media that tries to justify the Capitol breach.

    “It was not, as some would have you believe, tourists visiting the Capitol. Tourists don't injure 140 police officers by sightseeing. Tourists don't break down doors to get to the speaker of the House.”

    “The American people have a right to know what took place at the Capitol on January 6th, and I expect members of the fourth estate to continue to do their job.”
