Vice President Mike Pence seems scared to talk about the whistleblower’s complaint and the impeachment inquiries against President Donald Trump. Instead, he accuses the Democrats of trying to overturn the will of the American people. He said: “Truth is while we’re watching our nation’s capital, even today, we see many Democrats who spent the last two and a half years on baseless accusations. ”
He continues “And keep trying to overturn the will of the American people in the last presidential election. I’m here to make you a promise — whatever the Democrats and the allies want to spend their time on, President Donald Trump and I are gonna stay focused on the issues that matter most to you.”
Why is Pence scared to directly reference the hearing or complaint? The possible reasons could be :
A. He did not want to say anything that will contradict Trump’s verdict regarding the issue. Given the fact that if Trump is impeached, Mike Pence would automatically become the president, Trump is likely to misunderstand Pence’s words to mean that he (Pence) is in support of the impeachment.
B. He knows that any wrong statement from him at this time could be very costly to the Republicans in general and to the Trump administration in particular.
C. His troubling personal facts may be exposed again. These include:
Campaign finance records from a 1990 run for Congress show that Pence, then 31, had used political donations to pay the mortgage on his house, his personal credit card bill, groceries, golf tournament fees and car payments for his wife.
As governor of Indiana, Pence signed the most abortion-restrictive regulations in the nation, banning abortion even in cases where the fetus has a “genetic abnormality” such as Down syndrome.
In 2015, Pence helped pass one of the nation’s harshest “religious freedom” laws that would have protected businesses who wanted to refuse service to LGBT people if they cited religious objections.
