Mike Pence was being led down into the bowels of the Capitol building by Secret Service agents to a waiting vehicle in a subterranean garage. He was told to get into the car. He famously said, “I am not getting into that car.” He was about to when he saw who was driving. “I trust you, Tim, but you’re not driving the car. If I get in that vehicle, you guys are taking off. I’m not getting in the car.”
Those are not the words of someone who was refusing to leave out of civic duty. They are the words of someone afraid to entrust himself to strangers with his usual security detail gone. And this was at a moment when Trump had tweeted a further condemnation and the halls of the Capitol were ringing with chants of “Hang Mike Pence.” Good call!
Now, in light of the ILLEGAL disappearance of Secret Service messaging from January 5th and 6th it appears more and more likely that the SS had a mission that went beyond keeping people safe that day. Now they are covering it up. Biden needs to remove ANYBODY whose text messages have gone missing. NOW. He does not need the agents of the criminal Trump anywhere near.
