When fellow Republicans are telling you to back up, you might want to listen.

This comment could be interpreted two ways:

) You're becoming too extremist, so be careful

) You're not extremist enough, so be careful

America is a sad place these days. Democracy only works when all parties are willing to play by the rules.

Well, at least there are some medievals with dignity left..

A first good move on the part of Mr Pence … if he does decide to testify, it may help to further expose the disaster that Narcissus J. Trumpnocchio has been and will continue to be to democracy and stability of the United States of America.

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

He is entitled to his opinion. The Democrats were lashing out at the FBI after Hillary lost the election, and accused Trump of stealing it. The FBI, after all, is far from perfect.

Shed no tears for Pence. He knew what he was getting into when he agreed to become VP and only once - and that, at the Pence. He knew what he was getting into when he agreed to become VP and only

“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.”

This is such basic common sense that it is embarrassing they need to be told this.

Now the FBI are the victims? Lol.....yeah, ok...

I think the focus shouldn’t be on defunding law enforcement but funding education. A large number of Americans can’t read above elementary school level.

We get evidence of this daily.

No. They are doing their job and getting on with it.

I really agree with that, now if only our leaders in charge would deeply prioritize that put it in the forefront instead of focusing and putting all of its resources and our tax dollars into Ukraine, J6, Covid relief fund and China government funded renewable garbage.

No. They are doing their job and getting on with it.

Uh-huh…Which is the reason why they’re once again getting hammered. Next year should be very interesting for Wray….

Pence, like many other establishment Repubs, is trying to wash four years of MAGA-stench off...

He knows the stolen classified, fraudulent electors, and Georgia obstruction phone call means Trump will be in jail far before 2024...so the path to be the party's nominee is open...

He has one major problem though - he'll be asked every day what he thinks of Trump inciting his mob to "hang him and his family"....

So far he's fluffed it off - but will be forced to answer it if running...

Pence who experienced the violence at the Capitol Building on Jan 6 2020 now speaking out against provoking people to attack the FBI offices and agents. He should speak up about the dirt on Trump since it was Trump who threw him under the bus and called him a traitor.

Trump said that he wants to lower the temperature and wants to work with the Feds to get them what they need. I guess he made up for that by taking a calmer tone.

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.

An honest answer.

An somehow this discussion unravels as the blatant fear of a Trump resurgence bubbles over here as the left try and focus on baseless accusations made against Trump.

This only strengthens more the Republican Party and sets up a red wave for the upcoming elections.

“Everyone's saying no”: Trump hires Florida insurance lawyer as top attorneys refuse to work for him.

Trump’s legal team includes a former oan host, a lawyer for a parking garage company, and kash patel selling tank tops and beanies.

Trump once again is asking for donations.

Well, the judge that signed off on this warrant was a Jeffrey Epstein defender, so….

Trump once again is asking for donations.

But giving money to Democrats is better? I’m not really asking, they’re just taking it. That’s good? Not according to most Americans now more than ever.

America is in such a disarray, with political, social and economical problems, I'm surprised it still spends time and money on starting wars abroad. If it wasn't for the fact that they are still continuing to meddle in foreign affairs and setting up coups, toppling governments it doesn't like and making up lies to start wars, I'd actually feel sorry for the country. But as it is, I couldn't care less. Some might even call it karma.

AND he was a Trump appointee....so Trump promotes and supports his BFF Epstein...

I guess you also believe Trump and his neighbor Epstein had a quid-pro-quo....

ROFL...

What stops the lashing out isn’t Mike Pence. It is the FBI proving the raid was legitimate by the actual results of the raid and releasing the affidavit.

the raid is all but forgotten as to what was found and when the indictment is coming. It’s all about FBI and DOJ victim hood now. Makes you think they bungled this and need forgiveness.

Yes.

without attacking the rank-and-file law enforcement personnel at the FBI,

They can become whistleblowers and show us all that they are not part of the witch hunt and two tiered Justice system.

has there ever been whistleblowers in the FBI who aren’t supporting the liberal narrative only?

Who is this Pence guy? Was he the cardboard prop looking guy standing behind the true warrior for the American people?

With Cheney gone, it's a good thing the media has someone like Pence to quote once in a while.

I don’t think Pence has ever stood behind AOC.

More conspiracies.

With Cheney gone

She's not gone yet. We'll still be hearing a lot of her over the next few months, when the hearings start back up. Right before the elections.

The violent cult devotees during that weekend were openly denouncing both parties that infamous week. There were nooses ready, incl. one for Pence himself. Make no mistake, the insurrectionists were picking no sides. They are all TRAITORS just like trumpTrash is. Supposedly the Caligula and VP weren't even speaking to each other after Jan. 6.

“Everyone's saying no”: Trump hires Florida insurance lawyer as top attorneys refuse to work for him.

Would you want to represent or defend somebody so disgusting, repulsive, immature, sociopathic and an obviously guilty criminal traitor like Trump? He's probably blubbering to his attorneys - he just can't SHUT UP, MAN!

This case is even more vivid than that of R Kelly a years ago when his legal team walked out on him and his record label dropped him. Some things are as plain as the nose on a person's face.

*The violent cult devotees during that weekend were openly denouncing both parties that infamous week. There were nooses ready, incl. one for Pence himself. Make no mistake, the insurrectionists *

Trespassers, legality of the language matters in a court of law

*They are all TRAITORS just like trumpTrash is. Supposedly the Caligula *

Caligula???

Would you want to represent or defend somebody so disgusting, repulsive, immature, sociopathic and an obviously guilty criminal traitor like Trump?

Currently he has about 12 lawyers, so I guess so, and he’s not a traitor, he didn’t start any wars he didn’t go against this country he didn’t Weaponize the department of justice or the FBI, but like he said, show the affidavit and full details of the warrant. Usually guilty people and people with something to hide wouldn’t be that forthcoming, but he wants everything put on the table, and the FBI they don’t…hmmmm, But then again we have been through this before multiple times with the FBI, so to say that the credibility is undercut would be a seriously gross underestimation

*He's probably blubbering to his attorneys - he just can't *SHUT UP, MAN! 

Well, he doesn’t have to, or need to, he’s an American just like the rest of us and he can say whatever he wants, whenever he wants and how he wants, this is what the people that defend democracy want, is it not?

liberals still believe every single investigation or allegation involving Trump is factual.

There's a far greater factual basis for every accusation against Trump than for these silly election conspiracy theories.

As I believe and its my opinion that there were election irregularities that appear to me that the election was tampered with.

If believing fairytales about Trump actually winning the elections helps you make it through the day, fine, but don't expect the world to comport to these distortions. Also, try not to attack the US Capitol again next time Trump loses.

Russia collusion still true?

True, but not a crime apparently. Members of Trump's campaign passed off sensitive internal polling to Kremlin connections. That's a fact.

you wont get COVID if you get vaccinated?

No one said this. No matter how many times you repeat this, it doesn't make it true. Getting vaccinated makes it far, far less likely you get Covid and limits the chance of getting seriously ill.

people who lose their jobs over vaccine mandates wont successfully sue?

yawn.

It was. Trump tried to get people to find votes. Then he tried to illegally get Pence to do overturn the result. The 'tampering' is right there in front of you, all documented and recorded. If you want election fraud, look no further than Trump.

Stop making your inability to see this other people's problem.

Oh believe me, I am very worried about rightwing terrorists will do when Trump loses again.

At this point that won’t happen. Looking at the polls in the climate, people are pretty much done with the Democrats.

lol Nope. Not true. Democrats are now favored to take back the Senate, which unlike congressional districts, can't be gerrymandered to hell and back.

Hmmmm.....

A Politico-Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found 46 percent of registered voters would choose the Democratic candidate compared to 42 percent who would choose the Republican if the election for Congress was held in their district today.

Yes, true. But go ahead prove me wrong, show me a poll where it looks like the Democrats are going to retain the house, take your time. I’ll gladly apologize.

Democrats are now favored to take back the Senate,

Not necessarily true, Case in point, Cheney looked like she was going to win this race, all the polls show that everyone of them, and look what happened, so we have a long way to go before we know for a fact who will control the Senate.

The heavily gerrymandered house? Nowhere did I claim they're likely to keep the house, it's gerrymandered well in favor of Republicans, but that doesn't mean people have "given up" on Democrats or whatever the narrative is.

Not necessarily true, Case in point, Cheney looked like she was going to win this race, all the polls show that everyone of them, and look what happened, so we have a long way to go before we know for a fact who will control the Senate.

First Cheney is a congresswoman, not a senator. Second, at no point did anyone think she was actually going to keep her seat.

there won’t be enough tissue on this planet to stop the crying that these people are going to do after November. Democrats need to come up with a better strategy.

More than 1,000 people who entered the Capitol Building on Jan 6 went beyond trespassing and rioted and looted the building. More than 800 arrests and the FBI is still seeking others.
