    President Donald Trump shared his thoughts on the DOJ’s latest reported move to end their investigation into supposedly classified documents surrendered by former Vice President Mike Pence earlier this year.“Just announced that they are not going to bring charges against Mike Pence on the document hoax,” Trump wrote.He continued, “That’s great, but when am I going to be fully exonerated, I’m at least as innocent as he is. And what about Joe Biden, who is hiding at least 1850 boxes, and some located in Chinatown, DC? When will the witch hunt against ‘TRUMP’ stop?”From @NROcorner: "Unlike other Trump critics, Pence...

    Former two-term New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie returns to New Hampshire in the week ahead when the 2016 GOP White House contender is expected to launch a 2024 campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

Word that Christie would be declaring his candidacy for president for the second time came a day after his allies launched a super PAC to support the former governor’s 2024 presidential campaign. The formation of...

It allows Pence to offer an additional contrast between himself and former President Donald Trump, his political rival who’s under serious investigation by the Justice Department and others.

    Former Vice President Mike Pence appeared at the University of North Carolina this past week which, according to the student paper, resulted in some students leaving campus out of fear for “their safety.” The Daily Tar Heel reports that Pence spoke on April 26 about “a range of issues” at the “Saving America from the Woke Left” event sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation and the campus College Republicans. The UNC Young Democrats and members of 15 other student groups joined for a pre-Pence speech protest (pictured), dubbed “Saving America With the ‘Woke Left.’” Freshman Sawyer Husain, who’s from Pence’s...

After QAnon supporter Micki Larson-Olson was pointed out to Trump as a “Jan. 6-er” by the crowd at a packed diner, Trump sought her out, calling her “terrific,” telling her to “hang in there” and giving her a hug, video shows.

    Former Vice President Mike Pence appeared for seven hours before a federal grand jury investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot Thursday — one day after a federal appeals court rejected a bid by former President Donald Trump to block him from doing so. A three-judge panel on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, consisting of a Trump appointee and two appointees of former President Barack Obama, had issued a sealed order denying the 76-year-old’s appeal late Wednesday. *** Spokespeople and lawyers for Trump remained mum on the development. The former vice president and potential presidential candidate had said he...

After being introduced by NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre, Pence faced loud boos from across the room as attendees expressed what appeared to be a strong dislike for the former vice president and attempted to drown out those applauding him. "Well hello NRA," Pence began, to more boos.

    Vice President Mike Pence took the stage to raucous booing at the National Rifle Association's (NRA) annual leadership summit in his home state.

'I'm tired of the senseless violence and loss of life that could be prevented if our leaders would support law enforcement, protect our schools, institutionalize the obviously mentally ill, and enact legislation that...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence on Friday took aim at former President Donald Trump and other potential GOP presidential candidates as he laid out his vision for 2024 to Republican donors. Pence, in remarks at the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) spring donor retreat in Nashville, Tenn., argued that the party could not afford to remain fixated on the past or follow a cult of personality at the expense of policy — a clear swipe at Trump as the former vice president weighs whether to challenge his old boss for the 2024 nomination. “We need leaders with the courage to speak...

    At Gov. Ron DeSantis's (R-FL) urging, Florida Republicans are eagerly drafting a bill to expand the scope of defamation law. But not everyone in the conservative movement is a fan. During an exclusive interview with the Washington Examiner, former Vice President Mike Pence made clear that he was not thrilled about challenging New York Times v. Sullivan, the Supreme Court case establishing the actual malice standard for defamation of public figures. "Well, let me just say in the broadest sense, I believe a free and independent press is a bulwark of our nation," Pence said. "From my years in Congress,...
