Trump ha fatto pressioni su Pence per organizzare un colpo di stato, quindi mettere in pericolo il VP, dice la fonte

Presidente Donald Trump and top White House officials did little to check in on Vice President Mike Pence while he and members of his family were inside the US Capitol when Trump-backed rioters stormed the halls of Congress di mercoledì, a source close to the vice president tells CNN.

Pence was joined by his wife Karen Pence and his daughter Charlotte for the ceremonial counting of the electoral votes in Congress Wednesday. Several of the violent Trump supporters who were rampaging the US Capitol were heard screamingwhere’s Mike Pence,” ha detto la fonte, frightening the vice president and his family.
Ancora, the President and his top aides barely lifted a finger to check in on Pence to make sure he and his family were unharmed, la fonte ha aggiunto.
Was he concerned at all that an angry mob that he commanded to march on the Capitol might injure the vice president or his family?” the source asked.
    La Casa Bianca non ha risposto immediatamente a una richiesta di commento della CNN.
    People close to the vice president now believe he is being set up as ascapegoatto shoulder the blame inside Trump-world after Pence refused to buckle to the President’s demands to engineer a procedural coup that would keep Trump in power.
    Martedì, Pence came under intense pressure from Trump to toss out the election results during a meeting that lasted hours in the Oval Office. The vice president’s chief of staff, Marc Short, was banned by Trump from entering the West Wing, ha detto la fonte, as the President repeatedly warned withthinly veiled threatsto Pence that he would suffer major political consequences if he refused to cooperate.
    The message was pretty clear,” ha detto la fonte.
    The events Wednesday have left some aides to the vice president feeling Pence was betrayed by Trump as well as White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and the President’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.
    “Rudy, Meadows and their teams have been trying to set up the vice president to take the fall as opposed to admitting they laid out false hope in all of this,” ha detto la fonte.
      Trump just can’t admit defeat and wants a scapegoat,” la fonte ha aggiunto.
      Di giovedì, Charlotte Pence Bond, the vice president’s daughter who had been at the US Capitol with him, tweeted her congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
