Pence Has Been ‘Couch Surfing’ Since Leaving Office, Republicans Say He Fears For His Life

Former Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen have failed to find a permanent residence since leaving office last week, according to Business Insider.

The publication revealed on Tuesday that Republicans close to the couple aren’t exactly sure of their current living arrangements and believe the former second couple is “couch-surfing” at the residences of various Indiana officials.

“According to one source, the Pences are staying at the dolled-up cabin nearby that the Indiana governor uses as a retreat. If so, they’d need permission to spend the night from Pence’s former lieutenant governor, who now serves as governor, Eric Holcomb,” reported Tom LoBianco. “Two Republicans close to the Pences said they heard that the former second couple was staying at Pence’s brother’s place in Columbus. The one thing everyone is certain of is that when the Pences moved out of the vice president’s residence at the US Naval Observatory in Washington, they had nowhere to go. The former second couple doesn’t actually own a house.”

Per the report, the Pences are in a precarious position since leaving office.

“Republicans who spoke with Insider also said they wondered whether Pence and his team are closely guarding their new domicile because of the wave of death threats he faced just three weeks ago,” said the report. “The Trump-incited mob that stormed the Capitol earlier this month shouted that they wanted to hang Pence, and some of the people came within about 100 feet of confronting him and his family as they were hurried to a secure location in the Capitol.”

Business Insider also reports that Pence has been cut off from all contact with Donald Trump and is resentful that the former president put his life in danger.
