Trump files appeal to stop Pence from testifying on Capitol Hill assault

Former U.S. President Donald Trump (2017-2021) has filed Monday. an appeal to prevent former Vice President Mike Pence from having to testify. before a grand jury investigating the Capitol assault.

The former president’s legal team has appealed the decision of a federal judge in Washington who ruled a couple of weeks ago that Pence must provide testimony on Trump’s efforts to overturn 2020 election resultsaccording to U.S. media reports.

Pence’s lawyers already pointed out last Wednesday that will not appeal the judge’s decision to have him appear on his performance on January 6, 2021., the day the Capitol was stormed by Trump supporters as Democrat Joe Biden’s election victory was certified.

In Washington, a special prosecutor appointed in November by the Justice Department is already investigating Trump’s role in both those events of Jan. 6 as well as classified documents found in his Florida mansion.

Inquiries into the assault on the Capitol seek to determine who “interfered with the transfer of power.” and in the process of ratifying Biden as president in Congress after winning the 2020 election over Trump.

Regarding Mar-a-Lago (Florida), where Trump has his residence, the U.S. Department of Justice’s investigates the handling of classified documents that were found there. by the FBI.

Both Pence as the current President of the United States, Joe Bidenhave acknowledged that they have found classified documents in their respective residencesalthough both have made themselves available to authorities to cooperate with any possible investigation, unlike Trump.

Trump’s intervention to try to block Pence’s testimony comes just under a week after the former president was indicted on 34 counts in New York for falsifying business records.
