CNN’s Paula Reid: ‘This Thanksgiving, Federal Prosecutors Appear To Be Most Thankful for Mike Pence’s New Book’

‘He could be key as they continue to look into the president’s actions in and around the insurrection’

EXCERPT:

REID: “Good morning, Don. Well, this Thanksgiving, federal prosecutors appear to be most thankful for Mike Pence’s new book, where he describes in detail his interactions with former President Trump around the time of January 6th. Now, Pence, could be a really key witness for investigators as they continue to look into the former president’s actions in and around the insurrection and his efforts to undermine the result of the election. Now, in his memoir, Pence describes Trump’s tweet attacking him that day as ‘reckless.’ And he goes into great detail and great criticism of the former president and his handling of January 6th. And it was expected, once he said all of these things publicly, we expected that federal prosecutors were going to have some follow-up questions for him. Now, it’s notable that this outreach did come before the new special counsel, Jack Smith, was appointed to overtake the Trump investigations. And it’s unclear how his appointment will change any conversation or any of this outreach.”
