Jan. 6 Hearing Reveals That Trump Told Advisors Mike Pence “Deserves” To Be Hanged
During Liz Cheney’s opening tonight at the Jan. 6 hearing, it was revealed that Trump, unsurprisingly, agreed with terrorists at the Capitol—including recently indicted gay porn star Sergeant Miles—who were chanting “hang Mike Pence,” with Trump telling advisors that Pence “deserves it.” Via Mediaite:
“Over a series of hearings in the coming weeks you will hear testimony, live and on video, from more than half a dozen former White House staff in the Trump administration, all of whom were in the West Wing of the White House on January 6,” Cheney said in her opening statement. “You will hear testimony that ‘the president did not really want to put anything out’ calling off the riot or asking his supporters to leave. You will hear the President Trump was yelling and ‘really angry’ at advisors who told him he needed to be doing something more.”
Cheney went on to say that testimony will reveal Trump’s reaction to chants of “hang Mike Pence” from his supporters at the Capitol.
Aware of the rioters chants to ‘hang Mike Pence’, the president responded with this sentiment: ‘Maybe our supporters have the right idea’. Mike Pence ‘deserves it.’
According to a reporter, the line Cheney quoted prompted gasps.
