(Patriot.Buzz) – Escalating the witch hunt tactics against former President Donald Trump, former Vice President Mike Pence has been named as a potential witness in the Georgia election subversion case against Trump.
This detail, sourced from court documents that are currently sealed, emerges amidst Fulton County prosecutors’ efforts to investigate Trump’s alleged attempts to reverse the 2020 election outcome. The witness list, which includes over 150 names, has not been publicly released but is known to feature Pence, an important figure due to his role as Trump’s vice president.
Pence’s possible testimony in Georgia is noteworthy, particularly in light of his previous statements at the National Conference of State Legislatures, where he dismissed the notion of election theft in Georgia and emphasized the legal boundaries of his role on January 6, 2021. While Pence has already appeared before a federal grand jury for special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation, he has not yet provided sworn testimony for the Georgia case.
The potential of Pence testifying in Georgia represents a new phase in the district attorney’s probing strategy, although his spokesperson declined to comment on the matter. Pence has said he is ready to comply with legal requirements in the federal case, acknowledging his obligation to follow the law while highlighting the significant constitutional issues involved.
In the ongoing Georgia case, which charges fifteen defendants with racketeering, several of Trump’s former associates, including three attorneys, have agreed to plea deals and are set to testify. This case is paralleled by a federal case in Washington, D.C., where Trump’s lead counsel, Steve Sadow, seeks access to related evidence, citing significant similarities between the two cases.
The coordination between state and federal cases is a complex matter, as evidenced by Sadow’s request for access to documents, including notes by Pence obtained from the National Archives. The overlap in these cases necessitates careful handling of discovery materials, as Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee asserted.
With Trump’s legal battles unfolding on both state and federal fronts, the involvement of key figures like Pence and the challenge of navigating overlapping evidence underscores the intricate nature of these high-profile legal proceedings.
