( – Former VP Mike Pence during an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” remarked that many people in America had “lost confidence” in the Justice Department and that if he wins the White House he would “clean house” and make changes to the Justice Department at its highest levels.

These remarks from Pence come a week after former President Donald Trump, who is the frontrunner in the 2024 Republican presidential primary race, was indicted on 37 federal felony charges related to mishandling of classified information and obstruction of justice after he left the White House in 2021. Trump has repeatedly claimed that his indictment was “political prosecution.” These are allegations that many of his political allies have also brought forward.

In the interview with NBC host Chuck Todd, Pence vowed to enforce sweeping reforms if elected in office. He added that he would create a team that will include an attorney general, FBI director, and other senior personnel that will be confirmed by the United States Senate and will be well respected by people on both sides. He added that those he chooses will be people of “integrity” who will ensure that the law is applied fairly and equally to all.

In a different interview with The New York Post, Pence argued that the American people had “lost confidence” in the Justice Department and that if elected President, he would bring a new group of people to take over. He also argued that Trump would have his day in court and that it was premature for him to say whether or not he would pardon the former President when there is no guarantee that he will be found guilty.
