Former Vice President Mike Pence has been contacted by the Justice Department in connection with the events of January 6.
Reports emerged on Wednesday indicating that DOJ investigators are interested in interviewing Pence about his observations. Pence's desire to reorganise the agency is being reviewed, according to those close to him. Although Pence has refused to appear before the congressional panel looking into the assault on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, this has happened. This is seen as an effort to convert Pence into a witness against Trump in the inquiry.
Pence and Trump started to drift apart once they were no longer working together in the White House. Vice President Pence has publicly revealed the pressure from President Trump to prevent the 2020 presidential election results from being certified.
Unlike the probe being undertaken by the Democrat-led panel established on January 6th, the inquiry being conducted by the DOJ is independent of that probe. The Department of Justice wants to file criminal charges against Trump.
