New details have surfaced about how then-Vice President Mike Pence, second lady Karen Pence and other Pence family members hid from rioters at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

A source told ABC News that a “worried” Karen Pence closed the curtains as she saw rioters outside the window.

The photo was taken just after Pence and other family members ― including his brother, Rep. Greg Pence, and his daughter Charlotte Pence ― were taken out of the Senate chamber as the mob pushed further into the building, ABC News said.

Earlier that day, then-President Donald Trump held a rally at the Ellipse in which he urged the crowd to go to the Capitol, where Congress was meeting to certify the electoral votes that had given the presidential victory to Joe Biden, a process Pence presided over. Trump falsely told his supporters the election had been “stolen.”

A number of the rioters shouted “Hang Mike Pence” as they pushed into the Capitol building. A symbolic gallows was erected on the grounds.

The House select committee investigating the events of Jan. 6, 2021, disclosed that, while the riot was underway, Trump said maybe his vice president deserved to be hanged.
