Pence: History will hold disgraced former president “accountable” for Capitol riot

Source: USA Today

“Former Vice President Mike Pence delivered his sharpest criticism yet of Donald Trump Saturday, saying the former president put Pence’s family in danger and that history will hold him ‘accountable’ over the insurrection [sic] of Jan. 6, 2021. ‘President Trump was wrong,’ Pence said in a speech at the annual Gridiron dinner, a gathering of senior Washington journalists and dignitaries. ‘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.’ Pence’s words came as Trump is facing investigations in Atlanta and Washington, D.C. over Jan. 6.” (03/12/23)
