UNTHINKABLE: White House Security Officer Claims VP Pence Was Nearly Lynched By Jan. 6 Rioters [VIDEO]

A former White House Situation Room officer, Mike Stiegler, has revealed that then-President Donald Trump never called to check on then-Vice President Mike Pence as Trump fans hunted him at the Capitol on January 6th. Stiegler, whose account is featured in George Stephanopoulos’ new book “The Situation Room,” shared this disturbing detail on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday.

Stiegler recalled the tense moments when Pence’s safety was at risk, saying, “We were that close” to losing the VP. He described how the Situation Room team implemented continuity of government procedures, including discussing the line of succession and how to keep the government functioning. Stiegler emphasized that these measures were originally designed for an attack on the US government, but they found themselves executing them during a riot inspired by the President himself.

When asked if Trump ever called the Situation Room to inquire about the situation or Pence’s well-being, Stiegler replied, “Not to my knowledge. No, sir.”

Stiegler expressed his concern about revisionist history downplaying the severity of the January 6th events, saying, “It’s important to me that we don’t forget that it did come that close. And that we did have discussions. If we lose the VP, if the 25th is invoked. We started running through all of these game plans because it was getting close.”

  1. Then vote Biden if you care for joes bank account funded by our main adversaries. which is in no way treasonous

    echad me’adaso

  2. That would solely be Nancy pelosi’s fault for having turned down offer from the US army to protect the Capitol which was her jurisdiction & hence responsibility

  3. A few commentors here have short or selective memories….

    July 2022 headlines:
    “Mike Pence Secret Service agents feared for their lives, said goodbyes to family: Jan. 6 committee.”
    “…with some chanting “Hang Mike Pence.”
    “They had come to protest the result of the election and to prevent Congress from fulfilling its responsibility to open and count the Electoral College votes,” Pence writes. “And, as I later learned, many had come looking for me.”
    “The president’s words were reckless and his actions were reckless,” Pence said. “The president’s words that day at the rally [before the riot] endangered me and my family and everyone at the Capitol building.”
    “I turned to my daughter, who was standing nearby, and I said, ‘It doesn’t take courage to break the law. It takes courage to uphold the law,’” Pence said. 👏 👏 👏

    VP Pence is the unsung American hero of our time! 🇺🇸

  4. Oh, that’s utter garbage. Pence was never in any danger. Not only did he have the Secret Service with him, but nobody was trying to kill him. The whole idea that there were “mobs” “hunting” him is a lie. The “gallows” that was on display was a prop, an art project, not something that you could actually hang a person on. It was the equivalent of hanging someone in effigy, which is a venerable American tradition, and absolutely protected by the first amendment.

    The fact is that what happened on Jan-6-2021 was a completely legitimate and almost entirely peaceful protest, marred by a tiny minority (many of whom were probably FBI agents) engaging in minor violence, to which the Capitol Police responded with overwhelming force and murdered two protesters, and then made up a literal blood libel falsely claiming that one of their members had been killed and turning him into a martyr, followed by a witch-hunt that is still going strong 3.5 years later, worse than the Palmer raids just over a century earlier.

  5. This is so dumb. Why in the world would Donald Trump have imagined that Mike Pence was in danger? He was being protected by the Secret Service. If he had been killed in the first minute in some freak breakdown of security, then fine, but it was obvious to everyone that Mr. Pence had been whisked away, and why on earth would he have been in any danger?

    This is real sheker….

    Trump Graham 2024!

    And long live the tzaddik Mike Pence.

  6. I would also say, by-the-way — and I haven’t followed the relevant news and accusations enough in reference to this, but did Donald Trump know that anyone at all had implied that they wanted to hang the veep? I mean, without having been informed of that yet, why in the world would he think Pence was in danger? The people marching at the Capitol were protesting the very fact that Trump and Pence were not being installed for a second term. Obviously everyone knew that Pence was not going along with their wishes that he not affirm the election results, but still, these were people who literally ALL voted for Pence. Why would anyone assume they wanted him dead?
