Pence tells GOP to stop lashing out at FBI over Trump search

Source: Associated Press

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Former Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday implored fellow Republicans to stop lashing out at the FBI over the search of Donald Trump’s Florida home and denounced calls by some of the former president’s allies to defund the FBI, saying that was “just as wrong” as a push by Democratic activists to shift money from police.

Pence also said he would give “due consideration” if asked to testify before the House committee investigating the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

His pleas for restraint come as law enforcement officials warn of an escalating number of violent threats targeting federal agents and government facilities since agents last week searched Mar-a-Lago as part of the Justice Department’s investigation into the discovery of classified White House records recovered from Trump’s estate earlier this year.

Speaking in New Hampshire, Pence was asked what went through his mind when he heard about the FBI search of Trump’s home. Pence, who like Trump is considering a 2024 presidential bid, said he has been troubled by what he called the politicization of the FBI. He also said the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland should be more forthcoming about what led authorities to conduct the search.

14. This

He's a laughing stock of the left. And despised by the right.
And that's also why his saying he'd testify for the Jan 6th committee is also a big yawn. His testimony has zero validity anymore. He's the consummate puppet-for-hire.

And he put himself in that position. He's regarded as the ultimate coward because he fulfills that requirement from any political stripe possible.

From the left, playing the part of Trump's primary yes-man and sycophant. Mindless devotion while he was VP. The water bottle clip is so telling.

From the right, cowardly for not betraying the constitution and instead doing his job. Even if he tried like hell to find a way he COULD help his Dear Leader, in the end, he betrayed and wimped out for the Orange One and that means he betrayed them too.

7. I just hope the FBI got some SERIOUS stuff. Not some technical violations.

Some stuff can be classified but meaningless on its own. Thats just not gonna cut it.
But I don't know why Trump would want to keep something that didnt carry some weight either.

13. That's it, Mikey. Keep drawing attention to yourself.

Speaking in New Hampshire, Pence was asked what went through his mind when he heard about the FBI search of Trump’s home.

The correct answer is, "a gust of warm farts, just like any other day."

16. I remember when he was referred to as a potted plant

I don't see how that's changed much.

Give it up, Mikey. You will never be the rethuglican nominee. Do the right thing one more time.

18. I'm sick of this "unfunding" commentary.

Gosh, I could have it wrong, but wasn't it the Republicans who started that nonsense? I think that they have told the lie so many times that they now believe it to be true. But, I don't remember Dems starting that crap.

to Mother, a couple of silver-haired ladies from a local nursing home, and a handful of very bored journalists, no doubt.

What is the sound of a feather? I’m sure they heard him, being the leader of the party and all.
