DOJ wants to question Mike Pence as part of Trump probe on Jan. 6

DOJ wants to question Mike Pence as a witness in criminal investigation into Donald Trump over his actions during the January 6 riots – and former Vice President is ‘considering’ assisting 

The Justice Department wants to question Mike Pence as a witness in its investigation into Donald Trump‘s efforts to stay in the White House after he lost the 2020 election.

Pence is considering the request, The New York Times reported. The former vice president has refused to cooperate with the special House committee investigating the January 6th insurrection but he sees the DoJ criminal investigation as another matter.

Trump would likely try and invoke executive privilege to stop Pence or limit his testimony. The former president has invoked the privilege with other former officials with limited success.
