Mike Pence Receives Special Counsel's Subpoena Into Investigation Of Trump's Role In January 6

the former vice president Mike Pence was quoted by Jack Smith, the special prosecutor investigating the efforts of the former president donald trump to stay in office after he lost his re-election bid in the 2020 election and that led to the assault on United States Capitol on January 6, 2021 by his supporters, a person familiar with the matter said Thursday.

The Justice Department's move sets up a likely conflict over executive privilege, which Trump has previously used to try to delay and block testimony from former administration officials in various investigations into his conduct.

ABC News first reported the existence of the subpoena.

The office of special counsel Jack Smith is seeking documents and testimony related to the January 6 assault on the Capitol, said the source. They want Pence to testify about his interactions with Trump before the 2020 election and on the day of the attack on the US Capitol, according to CNN.

Trump pressured Mike Pence when he was leading the congressional certification of the Electoral College results, to block or delay the result, on January 6, 2021.

Pence refused, a fact Trump publicly highlighted when he incited a crowd of his supporters that day before they marched on Capitol Hill.
