    The Facts

    • Trump released a statement on Tuesday calling for the House Special Committee investigating Jan. 6 to look into his own former VP, Mike Pence.

    • This followed a surprising admission on Sunday night that he had indeed wanted Pence to "overturn" the 2020 election results.

    The Spin

    Pro-Trump narrative

    The fact that Democrats are frantically rushing to reform our nation's election laws proves that Pence did have the power to stop the certification of the fraudulent 2020 presidential election.

    Left narrative

    This new string of lies is a desperate attempt to claw back the ill-advised Sunday statement, which was an admission of guilt by the defeated president, whose legal prospects grow dimmer by the day.
