During an appearance at a “Politics & Eggs” talk at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire on Wednesday, former Vice President Mike Pence told the crowd that he’d “consider” testifying before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection if he were asked by the panel.
“If there was an invitation to participate, I’d consider it,” Pence said, according to USA Today. “But you’ve heard me mention the Constitution a few times this morning. [Through] the Constitution, we have three co-equal branches of government and any invitation that would be directed to me, I would have to reflect on that.”
“It would be unprecedented in history for a vice president to be summoned to testify on Capitol Hill,” he continued. “But as I said, I don’t want to prejudge. If ever any formal invitation [is] rendered to us, we’d give it due consideration.”
