Will Mike Pence Confront the Man He Slavishly Served Who Tried to Have Him Killed?
We begin with Senate leaders reaching an agreement today which gives the impeachment managers and Trump’s lawyers up to 16 hours each to present their cases with the option for a debate and a vote to call witnesses if the House impeachment managers seek it. This second impeachment trial of Donald Trump appears likely to be speedy and destined to end in a acquittal by the Republicans even though Trump tried to have his own Republican Vice President Mike Pence lynched by the mob Trump had told to “fight like hell” to stop Biden from being certified as president by the Electoral College. Sidney Blumenthal, a former senior advisor to President Clinton and Hillary Clinton whose latest book is All the Powers on Earth, The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln 1856 – 1860 joins us to discuss his article at The Guardian “The Martyrdom of Mike Pence“. We assess whether, short on testifying at the impeachment trial which seems unlikely, Mike Pence could at least make a public statement condemning the man he so slavishly served who tried to have him killed. But true to form Pence will continue to deliver everything to Trump even though Trump delivered him to the mob as a scapegoat, after Pence had shown Trump’s followers how to be the perfect servant.
