At around the same time, a New York state judge dismissed a lawsuit from Michael Cohen seeking to have the Trump Organization reimburse his legal fees for work he did on Trump's behalf.

Trump offers his strongest hint yet that he plans to run for president in 2024
Trump made the remarks while addressing a boisterous rally in Prescott Valley, Arizona on Friday, where he repeated his unproven claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him. 'I ran twice, I won twice, and did much better the second time than I did the first, getting millions. more votes in 2020 than we got in 2016,' Trump claimed. 'And likewise, getting more votes than any sitting president in the history of our country by far.''And now, we may have to do it again,' he continued. 'I mean, look at, look at what has happened to our country in less than two years.
He was transported to a loading dock beneath the Capitol
In March, a Secret Service inspector named Lanelle Hawa said during an accused rioter's trial that Pence spent "several hours, approximately four or five hours" in the Capitol's underground loading dock throughout the attack.
"It's located underneath the Capitol building, sort of under the plaza on the Senate side," Hawa said.
"When we got down to the secure location, Secret Service directed us to get into the cars, which I did, and then I noticed that the vice president had not," Greg Jacob, then Pence's senior counsel, said at a Thursday public hearing. "I understood that the vice president had refused to get into the car."
Trump, Pence rivalry intensifies as they consider 2024 runs
NEW YORK (AP) — Former Vice President Mike Pence is becoming increasingly brazen in his willingness to counter former President Donald Trump. The two will hold dueling rallies in Arizona on Friday as they stump for rival candidates who offer dramatically different visions of the Republican Party in a critical battleground state. Days later, they will once again cross paths as they deliver major speeches on the same day in Washington.

Pence refused to evacuate during the January 6th Capitol attack despite being in danger
Pence declined to evacuate despite the mob's chants because he "did not want to take any chance that the world would see the vice president of the United States fleeing the United States Capitol," Jacob added.
The pro-Trump mob that stormed that Capitol chanted "Hang Mike Pence."
"Aware of the rioters chants to 'hang Mike Pence,'" Committee co-chair Rep. Liz Cheney said in her opening, "the president responded with this sentiment: 'Maybe our supporters have the right idea.' Mike Pence 'deserves it.'"
He remained in the loading dock until the riot was over — watching the video Trump released hours into the attack telling rioters to go home.
"Go home. We love you. You're very special," Trump said in the video.

Mike Pence calls for all states to ban abortions and to pressure corporations to 'do their part' and cover adoptions
The former VP said he thought all states should ban abortions, though he said it would take time and "I do not know if I will be here to see it.""If you're going to be pro-life you need to be pro-adoption," Pence said during a speech at Florence Baptist Temple, a church in South Carolina.
Pence was speaking at the conservative Young America's Foundation in Washington, DC, where he was asked if there was a split between him and Trump and if that was heating up in the Republican Party, CBS News reported.
"I couldn't be more proud of the record of the Trump-Pence administration," he said, saying it advanced its policies "without apology."
"So, I don't know that our movement is that divided. I don't know that the president and I differ on issues, but we may differ on focus," he said.
He added that elections are "about the future" and that the US should "not give away to the temptation to look back."
Trump and Pence have taken different approaches since Trump lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden.
Pence has repeatedly said the GOP should move on from the loss.
Trump, in contrast, has often repeated old grievances and conspiracy theories about the election.
That difference was on show on Tuesday, as Trump gave a speech on the same night.
Trump, speaking to the America First Policy Institute in Washington, DC, repeated his baseless claims about voter fraud and the 2020 election.
The split between Trump and Pence go back to the Capitol riot. In the days leading up to it, Trump and his allies pressured Pence to reject the Electoral College vote and overturn Biden's election win — a move that Pence did not have the power to do.
Some rioters then called for Pence's death inside the Capitol, chanting "hang Mike Pence."
Pence has downplayed that experience, but has made it clear that he talks to Trump less often. A recent report by Axios' Jonathan Swan said Trump's inner circle now labels Pence an "enemy."
