‘Trump Asked Me to Put Him Over the Constitution,’ Pence Says

Former Vice President Mike Pence suggested that former President Donald J. Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election should disqualify him from holding office again.

Irrespective of the indictment, I want the American people to know that I had no right to overturn the election. And that on that day, President Trump asked me to put him over the Constitution. But I chose the Constitution, and I always will. And I, I really do believe that anyone who puts himself over the Constitution should never be president of the United States. What the president maintained that day and frankly has said over and over again over the last two and a half years is completely false. And it’s contrary to what our Constitution and the laws of this country provide. I dismissed it out of hand, but sadly, the president was surrounded by a group of crackpot lawyers that kept telling him what his itching ears wanted to hear. And while I made my case to him of what I understood my oath of the Constitution to require the president ultimately, ultimately, you know, continued to demand that I choose him over the Constitution. And so in this moment, irrespective of how this case plays out, I want the American people to know that I believe with all my heart that by God’s grace I did my duty that day.
