Watch: Pence Says He’s ‘Proud’ Of His Actions On January 6th

Former vice president Mike Pence said that he is “proud” of what he did on January 6th when he certified the election paving the way for the inauguration of Joe Biden.

“I will always be proud that we did our part on that tragic day to reconvene the Congress and fulfilled our duty under the Constitution and the laws of the United States,” Pence said at the Ronald Reagan presidential library in Simi Valley, California.

“There are those in our party who believed that in my position as presiding officer over the joint session that I possess the authority to reject or return electoral votes certified by the states,” Pence said. “But the Constitution provides the vice president with no such authority.”

“I understand the disappointment many feel about the last election,” Pence said. “But there’s more at stake than our party and our political fortunes in this moment. If we lose faith in the Constitution, we won’t just lose elections – we’ll lose our country.”

After defending his actions Pence attacked Critical Race Theory and school choice.
“The Republican Party in the years ahead must work to make school choice the right of every American family,” Pence said.
“Critical race theory teaches children as young as kindergarten to be ashamed of their skin color. It represents a full-throated assault aimed at the heart of the American experiment. It is nothing short of state-sponsored and state-sanctioned racism. Our party must ensure that critical race theory is expelled from our schools, our military, and our public institutions,” he added.

Pence is propping himself up for a speculated 2024 run. He’s serving himself instead of helping the GOP retake the House.
