Former Vice President Mike Pence denounced the debunked conspiracy theory that the FBI instigated the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol, emphasizing his personal experience during the event.

He expressed gratitude for the FBI’s efforts to arrest those involved and called for them to be held accountable.

Pence also criticized former President Donald Trump’s role in the attack and highlighted the need for new leadership within the Republican Party. (Trending: Chilling Arrest Footage of Trump Co-Defendant Provides Glimpse Into Jack Smith Probe)

“We’ve been assured again and again that it was not the case,” said Pence.

“I just must tell you, having been there that day, to see people literally breaking windows, ransacking the Capitol, it just infuriated me. I remember thinking ‘not this, not here, not at the United States Capitol,’” he continued.

Pence insisted the attack “should never have happened. As I’ve said many times before, the former president’s words that day were reckless. I believe history will judge his role in that.”

“They simply need to look to the facts that the Capitol Hill Police endured great hardship and great harm,” added the former vice president.

Pence said the primaries “give our party a fresh start and give us new leadership to lead our party forward in the election and beyond.”

Additionally, he described the events of the attack and the aftermath, including his separation from Trump.
