VIDEO: Pence Attacks Trump

Donald Trump and Mike Pence

( – During a televised interview on CNBC, former Vice President Mike Pence slammed former President Donald Trump for the allegations that Trump mishandled classified documents and, in Pence’s words, “…puts at risk the men and women of our armed forces.”

You can watch a video of Pence’s remarks further down this post.

According to Pence:

“The handling of classified materials is a very serious matter not only from my years as vice president but also my years on the International Relations Committee. And look, I had the chance to review the indictment over the weekend. And this indictment contains serious charges. And I cannot defend what is alleged. I will tell you, not only as a former vice president but also — my son’s a Marine. My son-in-law is a Navy Lieutenant. The very prospect that what is alleged here took place, creating an opportunity where highly sensitive classified material could’ve fallen into the wrong hands, even inadvertently, that jeopardizes our national security. It puts at risk the men and women of our armed forces. As I said, I can’t defend what is alleged. But the former president has the right to his day in court.”
