Yes, and there were other republicans (senators) in chambers, whose safety was at risk. How do their family and loved ones feel?

i well remember how the bbc dismissed complaints of incitement against joe brand, when she suggested battery acid be thrown over politicians, presumably they think the charges against trump are nonsense as well

though somehow hypocrites don't seem to have that level of self-awareness

It stills baffles me as to what Trump thought Pence could actually do with respect to election certification. Even if he DID refuse to call for Biden the race would not be automatically called for Trump. Wouldn’t the issue be taken up with the Supreme Court? And then what did he expect the court to vote in his favor dispute the certification process that called the race for Biden to that point? Was he so uneducated into how the democracy worked that he thought just one element in the chain could upturn all others? Or does any of this really matter? Maybe causing chaos, regardless of outcome, was the larger goal here. Stirring the pot at the local, state and national levels via improper phone calls to these officials, while getting certain national legislators in the Senate and House to suggest overturning other states election results and thereby instigating state vs state uncertainty, and perhaps antagonism, all for his benefit or to start the dismantling of the republic? How does an over indulged narcissist, not particularly bright or politicly savvy with no noticeable grasp of national or international history, get to where he seems to be acutely aware of how to chip away at our national foundation? Be interest to know who’s briefing him on this.

Vice President Mike Pence served our nation faithfully and honorably.
He can now return to Indiana in peace, with the thanks of Americans for the massive silent effort to create our successful vaccine program.
