Pence: History will hold Trump accountable for Capitol attack


President Donald Trump accountable for his role in inciting the violence. Pence made these remarks during an annual Gridiron Club Dinner in Washington.

Pence was serving as Vice President at the time of the attack and was present in the Capitol building when the rioters stormed the premises. The former Vice President faced criticism from Trump and his supporters for refusing to overturn the results of the 2020 US Presidential election, which Trump claimed was fraudulent.

During his speech, Pence condemned the attack on the Capitol as a “dark day in the history of the United States Capitol” and praised the bravery of law enforcement officials who responded to the incident. He also stated that he and Trump had spoken several times since leaving office and that they “disagree on some things,” including the events of January 6th.

Pence’s comments reflect the ongoing debate surrounding Trump’s responsibility for the Capitol attack, with many Democrats and some Republicans calling for the former President to be held accountable for his actions. Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives for his role in the incident, but he was acquitted by the Senate in a trial.
The attack on the Capitol has been widely condemned as an attack on democracy and the rule of law, and it has led to increased scrutiny of political polarization and extremism in the United States. The incident remains a significant moment in US history, and its long-term implications for American politics are still being assessed.
