[Ed. – How did that differ from before 1/6?  Anyone can email such sentiments to the V.P. at any time, and I’m betting Pence got a steady stream of such emails in the four years he and Trump were in office — from left-wing activists.  “Indivisible” alone probably accounted for hundreds per day.]

Members of the public pushed members of former President Donald Trump’s cabinet to remove him from office in the wake of the Capitol riot, according to emails that were recently released. …

It wasn’t just members of Congress that urged the cabinet to take drastic action against Trump. A recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request uncovered emails showing citizens also made the request. NBC’s Scott MacFarlane posted two of the emails on Twitter, which were addressed to Pence, as well as former Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette and Trump’s cabinet in general.

“President Trump has spent months inciting these events through his anti-democratic rhetoric and actions,” one email said. “This is not the time for small steps or half-actions. It’s time for patriots to step up and defend the Constitution and the rule of law.”
