Jan. 6 Attack Posed Loyalty Test for Indiana Rep. Greg Pence
By BRIAN SLODYSKO, Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — Indiana congressman Greg Pence watched the Jan. 6 insurrection unfold from an extraordinary perch. He was with his brother, Vice President Mike Pence, who was set to preside over a joint session of Congress where the outcome of the 2020 presidential election would be certified.
The two were whisked from the Senate minutes before rioters stormed the chamber.
They spent the next several hours in a secured room, while the vice president pleaded for help clearing the Capitol.
That vantage point makes Greg Pence a tantalizing prospective witness for the House committee investigating the origins of the attack.
A spokesperson for the Republican congressman did not respond to a request for comment.
