Alyssa Farah Griffin, who once worked as the official Press Secretary for former Republican Vice President Mike Pence, criticized what she referred to as the moral "disrepair" of the Republican Party after she received hateful messages for cooperating with the House Select Committee tasked with investigating the Capitol insurrection.

Griffin said "there's nothing less conservative" than attempts to "overturn [the] democratic process" and reminded her readers she had seen a "violent mob" call for Pence to be "hanged on the steps" of the United States Capitol.

She added Republicans refusing to acknowledge they are "morally in disrepair" as a political party will ultimately be "the GOP's undoing."

Griffin's post came after an Axios report confirmed that she is cooperating with the House committee. Griffin told the news outlet that people who are refusing to cooperate with the committee "are doing so out of complete fealty to [former President] Donald Trump and not wanting to piss him off."

She added that these same individuals are beginning to understand that the committee "has quite a bit more information than they realized" and that "their involvement is known to a much greater degree than they realized."

Many have praised Griffin for speaking out.


Pence could have been killed on January 6, the day a mob of former President Donald Trump's supporters stormed the United States Capitol on the false premise that the 2020 election had been stolen.

Video footage from that day shows the angry mob chanting "Hang Mike Pence!" and "Bring out Pence!" as they search for him through the halls of the Capitol. And just outside, the mob had set up a makeshit gallows.

Despite these facts, Pence has appeared to forget or ignore them altogether, criticizing the media for focusing on "one day in January" even though his life was very much at stake on the day he seems so keen to downplay.
