Mary Trump speaks to Katie Phang on MSNBC on June 17, 2022.

  • Former President Donald Trump “handed down a death sentence to Mike Pence” on January 6, Mary Trump said.
  • In an MSNBC interview, Trump’s niece responded to a claim that her uncle said Pence “deserved” to be hanged.

This supports a report by The New York Times that two former White House staffers testified before the January 6 committee claiming that former chief of staff Mark Meadows told them he had heard Trump make these comments.
