(FixThisNation.com) – Former Vice President and Republican Presidential candidate Mike Pence claimed on Sunday that the American people did not have any confidence in the Department of Justice (DOJ) after former President Donald Trump announced that he had received a target letter related to the federal Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack investigation. The target letter is widely considered to be evidence that the investigation is going to lead to charges filed against Trump over his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
Pence during an appearance on “State of the Union” with anchor Dana Bash, pointed out that the general public no longer was confident in the Department of Justice, and added that an additional indictment against Trump would just lead to Americans losing confidence in the Justice Department even more.
Pence added that he was hoping there would not be another indictment against Trump. He added that he believed that judgment on his decisions and actions on Jan. 6, 2021, should be decided by the American people during the 2024 presidential election.
He also pointed out that during his campaign stops he has heard a lot of concerns from people about the law being applied unequally.
Trump was already indicted once by special counsel Jack Smith, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland last year in connection to his alleged mishandling of classified documents after leaving the White House. Smith is the person handling the Jan. 6, 2021 investigation as well and he is the one who sent Trump the target letter.
