Mike Pence Failed in His Most Important Duty

Pence seems to have been involved up to the eyeballs in the Ukraine plot.

His team’s messaging—Yes, he pressed the Ukrainians to investigate corruption, but he never appreciated that Trump’s true purpose was to pursue the Bidens—fails the laugh test.

Pence’s taint presents a political problem for him, but raises a much graver question for the country.


If the Senate ever could muster the integrity to remove Trump from office, there would be no Gerald Ford to put in his place, only a vice president who participated in Trump’s dirty schemes, from staying at a remote resort to direct government funds to Trump’s failing Irish golf course to extorting an invaded country to fabricate political dirt to help Trump’s reelection.
