Donald Trump and Mike Pence are clearly at odds over the 2024 election.
The former Vice President is getting ready to challenge Trump for the nomination.
And now Donald Trump tried to stop Mike Pence from making one crazy 2024 decision.
The biggest bone of contention between Trump and Mike Pence is not in the political arena.
It’s in the courtroom.
Anti-Trump special counsel Jack Smith subpoenaed Pence to testify before the grand jury Smith impaneled as part of Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland’s anti-Trump witch hunt.
Smith is trying to fabricate criminal charges against Trump under the absurd theory that contesting an election amounts to seditious conspiracy to overthrow the government.
This case is pure partisan fishing expedition.
Two news pills from Harris/Harvard and Emerson show Trump leading Biden by four and five points.
Democrats see other polls showing nearly 70 percent of Americans think Joe Biden is too old to serve a second term as Biden’s senility is apparent to anyone paying even cursory attention.
Special counsel Smith is pressing pedal to the medal to try and throw Trump in jail to take him off the board in 2024.
And getting Mike Pence’s testimony is critical to this endeavor.
President Trump’s lawyers recently filed a motion to block Pence from testifying before the grand jury.
CNN exclusively reports:
Former President Donald Trump has asked a federal court to block former Vice President Mike Pence from speaking to a grand jury about certain matters covered by executive privilege as part of the criminal investigation into efforts to overturn Trump’s 2020 election loss, sources familiar with the move told CNN.
The request, in a new filing submitted secretly in a sealed proceeding on Friday, comes after the Trump team had already indicated to special counsel Jack Smith, who is overseeing the Justice Department’s criminal investigations into Trump, that the former president intended to assert privilege over Pence’s testimony.
The DOJ had previously asked a judge to compel Pence’s appearance before the grand jury, CNN reported last week.
Even Mike Pence agrees with Trump saying testifying before the grand jury would violate the Constitution’s separation of powers as Pence argues on January 6 he was serving in his capacity as President of the Senate and thus part of the legislative branch.
“Subpoenaing a former vice president to testify in court against the president with whom they served, I believe is unprecedented in American history. But as I said last week, I believe it’s also unconstitutional. And we’ll make that case through the ordinary judicial processes, but my counsel informs me that I’m, I’m constrained from speaking about it any further, but I stand by what I said. And I will continue to,” Pence stated.
