Report: US Secret Service looking into death threats against Mike Pence in wake of Capitol violence

Fox News reported Sunday that the U.S. Secret Service is investigating death threats made against Vice President Mike Pence — including one from a high-profile supporter of Donald Trump.

According to Fox, Lin Wood, an attorney and fan of the president who made headlines in the wake of the 2020 elections for putting forth a number of lawsuits alleging election fraud, is among those being probed for a now-deleted post he was alleged to have made on the social media site Parler threatening violence against Pence.

“Get the firing squads ready. Pence goes FIRST,” Wood was alleged to have written, according to Fox.

A spokesperson for the Secret Service reportedly told Fox on Saturday that the agency is “aware of the comments and take all threats against our protectees seriously.”

A riot at the Capitol

Disturbingly, Wood isn’t the only one who has called for the vice president’s assassination in recent days. According to Fox, a hashtag calling for Pence to be hanged was trending on Twitter before the company “blocked the phrase and other variations of it from trending.”

The Secret Service is also said to be looking into instances of rioters chanting “Hang Pence” inside the U.S. Capitol after breaching the building in a violent and destructive rampage Wednesday.

The violence, which came following a rally where the president and many of his allies spoke in Washington, left five dead and has prompted calls from both Democrats and Republicans for Trump to be removed from office, perhaps even at the hands of Vice President Mike Pence, on the grounds that he incited it all.

According to Politico, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote in a letter to colleagues Sunday that if Pence didn’t move to invoke the 25th Amendment to forcibly remove Trump, a provision that also requires the support of the president’s Cabinet, House Dems would move forward on impeachment proceedings.

“We are calling on the Vice President to respond within 24 hours,” the speaker wrote, as Politico reported. “Next, we will proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor.”

The clock is ticking

House Democrats followed through Monday by filing a single article of impeachment against the president, charging him with “incitement of insurrection,” according to NBC News. A vote on the floor could come as early as Wednesday.

Dems on the House Judiciary Committee also put forth a resolution calling on Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, which the House is reportedly set to vote on Tuesday after a bid for unanimous consent Monday was blocked by Republicans.

It all comes, however, just a little over a week before President-elect Joe Biden is set to take office. Indeed, it remains unclear whether Pence, or even a majority of the Senate, is on board with Pelosi’s plans to remove Trump — and Jan. 20 is only getting closer with every passing minute. Would the Senate really vote to convict a president who’s already out of office, even if Dems do succeed at impeachment? Only time will tell.

  1. I find it very difficult to believe anyone, other than the Deep State followers, would even think of such a horrendous act. This sounds like a false flag to me. I do not believe it. The Demoncrats will fabricate any type of lie to further their demonic agenda.

  2. Did you notice no one called for any type of retaliation against Democrats? It appears the only murderous criminals are Democrats. I always refrain from suggesting violence against anyone I oppose or dislike nor do I wish them harm or illness.. I would not be right. I cannot understand the hate in these people. Life is too short and beautiful. Pray for your enemies.

  3. Ive voted for Donald every time, i have agreed with what he has done. poor Mike is a very good man and should not be judged for what he had to do. follow the law is all he did. It is near time the tables get turned on nasty Pelosi and few other old hacks. They have done nothing for the last four years but try and get rid of Trump. She has even held the American people hostage with all CV 19 relief packages.

  4. Sure…go ahead and try to impeach him again….All of the Republicans should not ever bother to run for election again, if they do! Pelosi and her comrades are the ones needing impeached and have impeachable offenses. Our President only tried Making America Great…and he did!!

  5. You wait the Democrats are coming and they will destroy America . Just look at what they are doing . Making Pot legal , Freeing prisoners . Taking away your Freedom of speech, Taking away your guns. Voting fraud . Letting riots go on in towns and citys, Letting BLM tear down Statues. This is just the beginning. Wake UP America

  6. My first thought when I saw Antifi dressed like Trump supporters was that Pisslosi did it. She is evil, un-American and has been trying to take out the best President this country has ever had since before he was elected.

  7. Those of us who have been around for awhile are shocked at the direction being taken. No respect, just hate. The division in this country has been promoted by the Democrats. Kamala with her “just cause BLM” , Pelosi with ” people do what people do”. Now Biden doesn’t want to give businesses with white owners stimulus money and picks known racists for cabinet positions. There will be no unity in this country, only a boiling pot ready to overflow. The censorship is icing on the cake. These sites could be next

  8. This is a totally spiritual battle we are seeing taking place in America! Please read and meditate on the following: “For we wrestle not against FLESH and BLOOD, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12. The democrats have opened themselves up to demonic possession by refusing to acknowledge the reality of GOD. Christians MUST pray at every occasion for the Lord Jesus Christ to do that which only He can do- to release them from the bondage of Satan, their REAL enemy! This is serious………..

  9. Trump did not ask Pense to reverse election… that would have been against constitution….however Pense could have said it wasn’t his call and sent it back to the legislature to hear the evidence and vote to recertify or not. Why would anyone be against hearing the evidence? All the courts refused to look at any of the evidence…just threw cases out. Why? Why would Pense not allow the American people & legislators per our constitution the right to hear the evidence. He either has been a part of the deep state & pretending to support the President while stabbing him in the back the whole way or he is as Trump said…without courage. Either way he had a chance to stand and do the right thing and send it back to the legislature per the constitution but he didn’t. This man who has professed to being a strong Christian has betrayed our President & the American people. I realize he is human and not without sin but it’s very sad & disappointing.
