Jeffrey Toobin: Pence’s Ex-Staffers Unhappy With Trump, ‘Spilling the Beans’ to J6 Committee

The January 6th Committee has had difficulty getting some of Donald Trump’s former staffers to talk. Like Steve Bannon and Mark Meadows, some have even risked jail time to protect the former President.

Those who worked under Mike Pence, though, have no loyalty to Trump. In fact, they are angry with the former President for how he treated his Vice President. And according to CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, they are happily communicating with the Committee.

During a Tuesday night CNN spot, Wolf Blitzer asked Toobin, “How significant is it to see top advisers go to speak to the Select Committee?”

“Well, you know, Wolf, this isn’t a prosecution, but the committee is approaching it more or less like a prosecution,” the legal analyst responded. “They are working from the bottom up, from the outside in. And they are finding witnesses who were one or perhaps two steps removed from the President and finding out what they know.”

Toobin continued:

“The interesting political part of this is that even though former Vice President Pence is publicly loyal to the former president, his staff doesn’t seem as happy with Donald Trump, and they are telling what they know, unlike the people closest to Trump.”
