( – On Sunday former Vice President Mike Pence during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” told host Jake Tapper that the events on Jan. 6, 2021, during the Capitol attack had “infuriated” him on that day. However, he claims that the events do not constitute an “insurrection” and argued that former President Donald Trump should not be removed from state ballots for his involvement in the events.

Pence, who decided to withdraw from the 2024 presidential race last year, denounced the theories that the FBI had instigated the attack and argued that they had been repeatedly informed that was not the case. He added that he has repeatedly seen the FBI director and that he could assure the American people that the FBI had not been involved in instigating the Jan. 6 attack.

He proceeded to argue that he was grateful for the efforts of the FBI to bring around 1,000 people to justice following the attack on the U.S. Capitol and police force on that day. He added that he believed all those involved in the Capitol riot needed to be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.

Pence told Tapper that on that day he had needed to be “rushed out of the Capitol” as people were ransacking the building. As he said on that day he had thought to himself that this should not be happening at the U.S. Capitol. He added that he has repeatedly stated before that he believes Trump’s words on the day of the attack had been “reckless” and that history would judge what Trump’s role in the insurrection had been.
