DNC Statement on Mike Pence 

DNC spokesperson Adonna Biel released the following statement in response to former Vice President Mike Pence saying the defeated former president “is wrong” at the Federalist Society meeting:

“Let’s be very clear — former Vice President Mike Pence doesn’t deserve credit for ‘breaking’ with Trump after standing shoulder to shoulder with him for nearly six years. Pence stood silent as Trump undermined our democracy, and he surely could have done more before Trump incited a mob to attack the Capitol, assault police officers, and try to overturn an election. On the same day the Republican Party voted to declare the January 6 insurrection ‘legitimate political discourse,’ it could not be more clear that Pence’s comments today are a day late and a dollar short, to say the least.”
