Top Mike Pence Aide Will Cooperate with January 6 Committee

HeadlineDec 07, 2021

CNN reports a top aide to former Vice President Mike Pence is cooperating with the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection. Marc Short was Pence’s chief of staff and was present when Pence was rushed out of the Senate chamber and moved to a secure location in the Capitol basement, as rioters chanting “Hang Mike Pence!” breached the building. Donald Trump reportedly banned Short from the White House immediately after the insurrection.
