Fmr. Attorney General on Jan 6th: I Have Confidence in Mike Pence, I Think He Did the Absolute Right Thing

‘Because the president of the United States was pressuring him, he just wanted to get confirmation from someone who has sat in that chair’

EXCERPT:

GONZALES: "Well, I think it’s just as likely that Mike Pence felt very confident in his -- in his position that he had no flexibility here. But, nonetheless, because it was such an important decision and because the president of the United States was pressuring him, he just wanted to get confirmation from someone who has sat in that chair. So, you know, I have confidence in Mike Pence. I think he did the absolute right thing. And I -- I give him the benefit of the doubt. I think what he was doing here was simply calling someone who had been in that same chair and just reaffirming his position. At least I hope that was the case."
