Kirschner, who served as a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia for more than two decades, noted that Congress had a legitimate purpose in trying to find out what happened with Trump’s attempt to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election – which Pence ultimately rejected, despite pressure from Trump and his supporters, who chanted “Hang Mike Pence” on the day of the violence.
Potential 2024 GOP nominee Pence, Kirschner continued, has “some of the most directly relevant evidence about what happened.”
