Pence saying “no” to Jan. 6th hearing appearance

Columbus native Mike Pence says the January 6th Committee has no right to his testimony.

In an interview on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” the former Vice President said he’s “closing the door” on testifying before the panel because Congress has no right to summon him. Pence said he has never stopped his team members from testifying, but that it would be a “terrible precedent” for Congress to question vice presidents about White House deliberations.

During a town hall with CNN on Wednesday, Pence talks abouts some of his private discussions with then-President Trump following the January 6th attack on the Capitol.

Pence also said it was concerning that the January 6th Committee members were being appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
