Targeting Mike Pence. What did fired Rittenhouse attorney John Pierce have to say?
The impeachment presentations today concerning Mike Pence have been chilling. Attorney John Pierce is a Trump supporter and piled on in the hours after the Capitol Insurrection. The tweets captured in the cover photo speak for themselves. One would reasonably find such rhetoric from an officer of the court to be unusual, but in Pierce’s case it is perhaps unsurprising.
To put this context, Mike Pence had been threatened by an angry mob that killed five people, including a Capitol Police Officer, was chanting “Hang Mike Pence,” and had erected a gallows outside the Capitol presumably to do just that. Then just mere hours after the murderous chaos ended, Mike Pence thanks the Capitol Police for “keeping us safe today” and for “your service.” Attorney John M. Pierce then responds by calling the former Vice President a “coward” and a “turncoat.”
Pierce penned a number of inflammatory tweets before and after the attack on the Capitol. In one such tweet, Pierce used his former client Kyle Rittenhouse’s name as a prop to push his violent rhetoric. The 18-year-old reportedly fired Pierce a little over a week ago. Another tweet penned by Attorney Pierce, just hours after the January 6 attack had subsided, also speaks for itself.
Pierce’s invective towards Mike Pence, seemingly calling for violence just hours after the Insurrection, is not an isolated incident. A report that Pierce threatened to kill the mother of his three children, as well as a 90-second video created by Jennifer Sulkess, provided additional context.
John Pierce has been fired by Kyle Rittenhouse. John Pierce’s transgressions continue to mount. John Pierce called the former Vice President a “coward” and “turncoat” mere hours after an angry murderous mob was hunting Pence down and chanting for his death.
