'American people won't tolerate' another January 6 says Mike Pence...• https://www.dailymail.co, By KATELYN CARALLE
Mike Pence defended Donald Trump's calls for his supporters to protest a possible imminent indictment, claiming the demonstrations are unlikely to turn violent because the public won't 'tolerate' another disaster like on January 6.
The former vice president is among the most vocal potential 2024 candidates speaking out against the prospect that Trump could be indicted this week in a case involving hush money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 campaign.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg released a memo over the weekend reassuring staff that they are taking precautions to address threats made toward the office.
The potential for an indictment has only bolstered support for Trump on the right.
'I'm taken aback at the idea of indicting a former President of the United States, at a time when there's a crime wave in New York City,' Pence told ABC This Week host Jonathan Karl on Sunday. 'The fact that the Manhattan DA thinks that indicting President Trump is his top priority, I think, just tells you everything you need to know about the radical left in this country.'
Pence, who reiterated during the interview that he is considering running for president in 2024, denounced the entire case against Trump as a 'politically charged prosecution.'
'I just feel like it's just not what the American people want to see,' the Republican said. 'We got real challenges in this country today.'
'People are facing record inflation, a crisis at our border. We have war in Eastern Europe, the American people are anxious about the future and here we go again, back into another politically charged prosecution directed at the former president of the United States,' he continued.
