Three Things: Mike Pence, Krysten Sinema and the Jan. 6 prosecutor

1) PJ Media reports on Mike Pence making surprising claims on his relationship with Trump: 

Trump himself seems to have soured on the vice president. Back in June,  Trump revealed that he would consider a different running mate if he decides to run for president again in 2024.

Nevertheless, according to Pence, despite their disagreements, Pence says he and President Trump are still close.

“My understanding is that you two have a strong relationship to this day. What is your relationship with the president?” Sean Hannity asked Pence on his show Monday night.

“Look, you can’t spend almost five years in a political foxhole with somebody without developing a strong relationship,” Pence replied. “You know, January 6th was a tragic day in the history of our Capitol building, but thanks to the efforts of Capitol Hill police [and] federal officials, the Capitol was secured. We finished our work, and the president and I sat down a few days later and talked through all of it. I can tell you that we parted amicably at the end of the administration, and we’ve talked a number of times since we both left office.”

2) The Left is furious at Krysten Sinema. National Review notes: 

Most of us can see the dynamic at work here. Liberals loved John McCain because he deviated from the Republican Party line and intermittently sided with Democrats. Liberals currently loathe Sinema because she is deviating from the Democratic Party line and, for now, positioning herself with Republicans.

3) The man prosecuting the Jan. 6 cases is a fanatical leftist. American Greatness reports: 

Channing Phillips is not a household name, but he is arguably one of the most powerful men in Washington right now, overseeing the Biden regime’s nationwide dragnet for Americans who protested Joe Biden’s election…

…Phillips is more low-key in public but his office is no less ruthless. His prosecutors continue to seek pretrial detention for anyone accused of violence, including assault of a federal officer, the same charge his office just dropped against a BLM protester. In some instances, Phillips’ lawyers want even nonviolent offenders to remain behind bars for months awaiting a trial or plea offer.

…Further, Phillips’ merciless targeting of Trump supporters seems to be a personal vendetta of sorts. Contrary to Joe Biden’s promise that his Justice Department would be free from partisanship, Phillips has strong opinions—and no qualms about using his authority to advance his political interests.

…The man now prosecuting Trump supporters, charging the overwhelming majority with misdemeanors but nonetheless bankrupting their families and destroying their reputations in the process, has clear animus toward President Trump and his former advisors, including Attorney General William Barr. Phillips blasted Barr for moving to dismiss the perjury case against Lt. General Michael Flynn, a product of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into imaginary Trump-Russia election collusion. Barr, Phillips argued at the time, should resign and be investigated by Congress.
