Pence 'proud' of Jan 6 actions despite Trump criticism

Pence was in the U.S. Capitol on January 6 when pro-Trump rioters launched a deadly assault on the building in an ultimately unsuccessful bid to stop Congress from formally accepting Biden's victory over Trump in the November presidential election.

Some of the rioters on January 6 chanted threats including "hang Mike Pence," who had refused Trump's request that he block certification of Biden's win, an authority the vice president did not have.

The violence left five people dead. Some 500 people have now been arrested on charges of joining the assault.
