Former Vice President Mike Pence will testify in an investigation into Donald Trump’s attempts to undermine the 2020 US presidential election. There has been speculation about this for some time, but according to US media, the investigating judge’s decision has now been made. The decision has not been announced.

Pence should provide an investigative jury with insight into conversations he had with President Trump before storming the Capitol in Washington on January 6, 2021, it was reported. Trump then called on his supporters to oppose the election result, which he lost to Democrat Joe Biden two months ago. Republican Trump has insisted that a fraud occurred, although there is no evidence to support this.

Pence will not have to answer in front of a jury for what he did to himself on Jan. 6 when a mob of angry Trump supporters stormed the Capitol and caused chaos. Pence’s team is reportedly still considering whether to appeal the call to testify.


Several of Trump’s confidants have previously testified in the Capitol riot investigation. Any testimony from Pence is racy: It could lead the vice president to make a potentially damaging statement about the president under whom he served. This has never happened in the US before.

Six weeks ago, several US media outlets also reported that Pence would be recalled. There was no confirmation of this from the American justice system at the time.
