With Donald Trump finding himself in an ever-increasing number of crosshairs of late, there has been nearly-endless speculation as to what the GOP field for the 2024 election could look like.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appears to be making all the requisite moves for a run, and Liz Cheney seems to be shifting her political future in that direction as well.
Heck, even former Vice President Mike Pence seems to be making strides toward a potential bid, distancing himself from his former boss a little more with every passing week.
Pence is now even admitting that he may be compelled to testify in front of the January 6th select committee.
Pence spoke at a “Politics and Eggs” event hosted by Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, a stop many presidential hopefuls make during campaign season.Trending:
When asked if he would be agreeable to appearing before the select committee, Pence said “if there was an invitation to participate, I would consider it.”
Pence added that it was unprecedented for a vice president to testify on Capitol Hill — though there is precedent for a sitting vice president, as well as several former presidents, appearing before House and Senate committees.
Pence certainly seemed amenable to the idea.
“Any invitation directed to me, I would have to reflect on the unique role I was serving in as vice president. It would be unprecedented in history for the vice president to be summoned to testify on Capitol Hill,” Pence said. “But as I said, I don’t want to pre-judge. So if any formal invitation was rendered to us, we’d give it due consideration.”
The move would certainly fuel more dissonance between he and Donald Trump, who has spent much of the last year decrying the committee’s work as a “witch hunt”.
