Trump Told Pence He Could Be “A Patriot Or A P*ssy” On January 6th — And He Doesn’t Deny It

Mod: I guess that's why Donald sent in a few thousand of his goons to grab him. Or worse. 

Trump Told Pence He Could Be “A Patriot Or A P*ssy” On January 6th — And He Doesn’t Deny It (Hill Reporter link): Then-President Donald Trump reportedly told his Vice President Mike Pence that he had two choices on January 6th, and laid them out clearly: “You can either be a patriot or a p*ssy.” 

That’s one revelation in a new book that tells the story of Trump’s final days in office, and of the pressure he placed on Pence to help him carry out a coup by overturning the outcome of the 2020 election.

Jonathan Karl, of ABC news, tells the story in his new book, Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show, and ABC is sharing some of the book’s contents in advance of its release on Tuesday. In a new report, they share the story of a memo that attorney Jenna Ellis reportedly drafted to instruct Pence on his exact role in overturning the election.

However, it wasn’t just Ellis who directed Pence to reject six states’ results and demand new counts by January 25th. Donald Trump reportedly made a phone call to Pence the morning of January 6th, pressuring him to act. 

Karl says that he double-checked with Trump before publishing, specifically asking if it was true that the former president told his VP “You can either go down in history as a patriot, or you can go down in history as a pussy.”

Trump
said he would not refute the story.

The information comes from a January report in the New York Times, relying on testimony from two people who’d been briefed on the calls. Trump frequently insists that inside information leaked by anonymous sources can’t be trusted, so for him to confirm this story for the ABC reporter is an unusual case.

It’s also clear that what Trump promised is exactly what he and his fans worked to bring to fruition for Pence, who was threatened with death by hanging on the day of the attempted insurrection, and remains a target of MAGA anger since. In fact, just this past week, Trump sat for an interview in which he was asked about his supporters attacking the Capitol and shouting for Pence’s death, and he defended the threats, justifying them with statements about the rage he’d stoked in his fans who genuinely believed his claims about the election being “stolen.”

  1. Memo from Trump attorney outlined how Pence could overturn election, says new book

    In a memo not made public until now, then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows emailed to Vice President Mike Pence's top aide, on New Year's Eve, a detailed plan for undoing President Joe Biden's election victory, ABC News' Chief Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl reports.

    The memo, written by former President Donald Trump's campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis, is reported for the first time in Karl's upcoming book, "Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show" -- demonstrating how Pence was under even more pressure than previously known to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

    Ellis, in the memo, outlined a multi-step strategy: On Jan. 6, the day Congress was to certify the 2020 election results, Pence was to send back the electoral votes from six battleground states that Trump falsely claimed he had won.

    The memo said that Pence would give the states a deadline of "7pm eastern standard time on January 15th" to send back a new set of votes, according to Karl.

  3. There are sociopathic, evil ppl in the GOP--and those who feel free to exploit lobbyists for $, and then Pencers, dumb and afraid to step outside of the Kaiser's line. As evil as I feel Dick Cheney is (and was), his daughter appears to be a bright light in a handful of true Patriots. (To think that Pence called a former VP, Dan Quale--not an Oxford Scholar,--to question his own power to validate or invalidate the constitutionality of refusing to certify the election is quite scary)! Imagine this: Dan Quale has become a hero, by refusing to justify Trump's order --due to it's unconstitutionality!

  10. Missouri Officer Charged In Fatal Shooting of Black Man In His Backyard Awaits Verdict After Week-Long Trial with Claims of Planted Gun, Cops’ Unlawful Entry.

    DeValkenaere, 43, is charged with involuntary manslaughter after he shot 26-year-old Cameron Lamb as he sat in a pickup truck in his own backyard on Dec. 3, 2019. The bench trial began on Monday, Nov. 8, and ended on Friday.
    Prosecutors presented police dash camera video in court this week, showing that police prevented an EMS crew from entering the garage to check on Lamb for 14 minutes after the shooting. When medics were finally allowed inside the garage, Lamb, a father of four, was pronounced dead.

  12. Pence called Quayle not out of concern about violating the Constitution but as a trial balloon to determine whether old guard GOPers like the Bush family and their former staff and base would support the Trump coup.

    Neither Pence nor Quayle, who likely acted as nothing more than a conduit, are heroes here.

    The White Supremacist ‘Great Replacement Theory’ Has Deep Roots
    Republican politicians and commentators are continuing to embrace the white supremacist replacement theory about non-white immigration to the United States. Fox News host Tucker Carlson has said Democrats wanted “the replacement of legacy Americans with more obedient people from far away countries.” Referring to an “invasion” of Haitian migrants, Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick said, “ In 18 years, if every one of them has two or three children, you are talking about millions and millions and millions of new voters.” Patrick concluded, “This is trying to take over our country without firing a shot.”

    1. How is it that those Haitian immigrants, most of whom were living in South America, not Haiti, for more than 10 years, suddenly started appearing en masse at the one Texas boarder crossing they were able to get through? Who put out the word in South America, gathered them together, and supplied the transportation and other logistics to get them to the Texas border? Why isn't CNN on that story gathering facts instead of the constant Biden and Harris bashing? In mid-2022, CNN will breathlessly scaremonger on another "caravan" of migrants crossing Mexico toward the US but in their zeal to help the GOP will never report on who is funding the scary caravans.

  16. Alex Jones liable for defamation in Sandy Hook 'hoax' case

    In one of the lawsuits, a Texas judge in 2019 ordered Jones to pay $100,000 in legal fees and refused to dismiss the suit. And a jury in Wisconsin awarded $450,000 to one of the parents in his lawsuit against conspiracy theorist writers, not including Jones, who claimed the massacre never happened.

    In the three Connecticut lawsuits, Jones previously was sanctioned for violating numerous orders to turn over documents and for an angry outburst on his web show against Mattei. A judge barred Jones from filing a motion to the dismiss the case — a ruling that was upheld after being appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which declined to hear Jones’ appeal in April.

    Bird flu spreads in Europe and Asia, putting poultry industry on alert
    The spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza, commonly called bird flu, has put the poultry industry on alert after previous outbreaks led to the culling of tens of millions of birds. Outbreaks also often lead to trade restrictions.
    It is attracting the attention too of epidemiologists as the virus can be transmitted to humans. China has reported 21 human infections with the H5N6 subtype of avian influenza so far this year, more than in the whole of 2020.

  19. The true filth of America and the globe.
    Worst case of Hemorrhoids.
    Republicans are soiling Americans' view of the economic recovery, 2021.

    Despite the party's inflation fears, inflation itself is expected to be short-lived. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said earlier in November that price growth should cool "by the second or third quarter." Prices have risen faster than expected, he said, but as supply chains heal, the inflation situation should look much more normal.

    By that point, though, the partisan split on views of the economy could have big implications for which party controls Congress, and whose legislative vision on the economy gets realized.

    Prosecutor pleads guilty and resigns as jury deliberates

    As a jury was deliberating over his fate, a Georgia district attorney on Monday pleaded guilty to several charges stemming from improper acts while in office and agreed to resign.

    Mark Jones had already been suspended as Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit district attorney after the state attorney general’s office obtained the indictment on Sept. 7. It accused him of trying to influence a police officer’s testimony, offering bribes to prosecutors in his office and trying to influence and prevent the testimony of a crime victim.

  23. The most vital urgent and DEEP understanding everyone needs to RE-learn is that psychopaths typically are not physically violent crazies but always stealth predators (exploitative deceivers, which explains why the public has been fed a MISLEADING understanding of psychopaths). And then... the most vital urgent and DEEP understanding everyone needs to gain is that a network of manipulating psychopaths ARE governing big businesses (eg official medicine), nations and the world (the evidence is irrefutable) and that, therefore, the Covid Scamdemic is a VERY DESTRUCTIVE WAR AGAINST NON-RULING PEOPLE EVERYWHERE --- you and I. But that's only ONE part of the equation that makes up the destructive human condition.

    It is NOT just a matter of "draining the swamp" at the top and we're back to our former (sick) "normal."

    The true, WHOLE, but "politically inconvenient" and “culturally forbidden” reality is more encompassing because "the swamp that needs draining" on a psychological and behavioral level is over 90% of people anywhere. Study (NOT briefly scan) “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” at w w w d o t CovidTruthBeKnown d o t c o m

    Without a proper understanding, and full acknowledgment, of the true WHOLE problem and reality, no real constructive LASTING change is possible for humanity.

    Then ... SPREAD THOSE DEEP TRUTHS FAR AND WIDE... and DO the RIGHT THING.

    "The inhumane abominations, issued by the highly credentialed professional class of psychopaths-in-control and their lauded sycophantic minions, of “No Jews Allowed” and “No Colored People Allowed” of yesterday is the “No Unvaccinated People Allowed” of today." (from cited article)
