The House select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection continued on Thursday, detailing how former President Donald Trump tried to pressure his vice president to join in his scheme to overturn the presidential election — and how Mike Pence’s refusal put his life in danger as rioters called for his hanging on Jan. 6, 2021.
“Mike Pence was 40 feet away from almost certain death,” Michael Medved, host of the Michael Medved Show, said on the Gee and Ursula Show on KIRO Newsradio. “Some of the the videos that they played about people who were very determined to kill Mike Pence, the fact that they now have an individual, a spy basically, who had penetrated the Proud Boys who said, yes, there was definitely a plan to kill Pence or Pelosi.
“I think it’s going to be harder and harder for people to defend what happened on January 6,” Medved continued.
According to witness testimony, Pence himself and the lawyer who concocted the scheme advised Trump directly that the plan was unconstitutional and violated federal law. Committee members argued that this shows Trump’s corrupt intentions and could lay the groundwork for a potential indictment.
“All of this, I think, is decreasing the likelihood that Donald Trump would have some kind of cakewalk to the Republican nomination,” Medved said. “I think it’s going to be a big struggle for him. And of course, like many Americans and many Republicans, I hope for the sake of the country and the party, that he decides not to run.”
Medved stressed the uncertainties the future of the Republican Party may have if the focus remains on the belief that there was fraud in the election process.
This guy and Hugh Hewitt...
“Mike Pence was 40 feet away from almost certain death,”
Who could be stupid enough to believe that?
that clown is still on the air??
Now you now why he was booted off Salem....He is a very smart man, but somehow he went astray, survived cancer, and still can’t see the light of day.
Drama queens. Barf.
I quit listening to Medved 25 years ago when he advocated open borders.
Wow, sad. I used to sort of know him. Had dinner with him once. Really admired his writing. Too bad he self-destructed like this.
Medved; a known Trump hater.
I seem to remember liking Medved a long time ago, then he disappeared. I had no idea that he went off the deep end.
I used to listen to his show until the day back in Oct. 2020 when he endorsed both Biden and Democrat Governor Inslee.
I haven’t even heard this guy’s name is several years. That’s how much Trump has made these clowns non-players.
I had no idea that he went off the deep end.
It's sad. He was once a great conservative and debater.
“Mike Pence was 40 feet away from almost certain death”
Mike Pence was thought to be a Trump team member at the time.
To shoot him would be like shooting a paramedic when you’re having a big one.
Medved lost his conservative street creds more than 15 years ago.
Medved is a full leftist.
Before that he was a commie. Check his history.
If that were the case there would be more serious charges. I don’t believe for a minute Pelosi or Pence were in real danger
