Supporters of President Donald Trump who stormed and invaded the Capitol on Wednesday reportedly intended to find and execute Vice President Mike Pence.

Reuters News Pictures Editor Jim Bourg revealed in a Twitter post that he heard “at least 3 different rioters at the Capitol say they hoped to find Vice President Mike Pence and execute him by hanging him from a Capitol Hill tree as a traitor.”

I heard at least 3 different rioters at the Capitol say that they hoped to find Vice President Mike Pence and execute him by hanging him from a Capitol Hill tree as a traitor. It was a common line being repeated. Many more were just talking about how the VP should be executed. https://t.co/fxHREouEWF

“It was a common line being repeated,” he added. “Many more were just talking about how the VP should be executed.”

A Twitter user later responded to the report, sharing a video of rioters chanting, “Hang Mike Pence!”

2. Pence betrayed no one.

These traitors are loyal to Trump, just like the Germans who swore allegiance to Hitler.

6. Exactly. That's how trump does things - by implication

Evil people don't tell their minions what to do, they let the minions "decide" to do it themselves.

Any wonder why pence won't support the 25th?
