Do you even know what the word "probably" means?
can you describe the scenario where pence is intimidated into doing the will of the mob? like do they bring him into the chamber with a knife to his neck? how exactly do they scare him into overthrowing democracy?
Sure. That which frightened him into hiding. You know, that which actually occurred. He was brave enough to not cave, but there was no guarantee of that. That's why trump sent the mob in the first place.
if he was hiding how would he participate in rejecting the votes? couldnt he just come back later? yunno, exactly the way he actually did?
Sorry, I'm not going down your dumb rabbit hole.
of course not
Jan. 6 was the very first time Pence stood up to trump, so apparently trump had every expectation that Pence would cave once more. That he didn't was a complete surprise, causing trump to cry to Pence: ""I don't want to be your friend any more".

Oath Keepers Leader Charged With Seditious Conspiracy in Jan. 6 Investigation
BOOM! Seditious conspiracy. There goes that "this was not an insurrection" talking point.

Stewart Rhodes, the leader and founder of the far-right Oath Keepers militia, was arrested on Thursday and charged with seditious conspiracy for organizing a wide-ranging plot to storm the Capitol last Jan. 6 and disrupt the certification of Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s electoral victory, federal law enforcement officials said.
The arrest of Mr. Rhodes was a major step forward in the sprawling investigation of the Capitol attack and the case marked the first time that prosecutors had filed charges of sedition. According to his lawyer, Jonathon Moseley, Mr. Rhodes was arrested at shortly before 1 p.m.
Mr. Rhodes, a former Army paratrooper who went on to earn a law degree at Yale, has been under investigation for his role in Jan. 6 since at least last spring when, against the advice of his lawyer, he sat down with F.B.I. agents for an interview in Texas. He was at the Capitol on Jan. 6, communicating by cellphone and a chat app with members of his team, many of whom went into the building. But there is no evidence that he entered the Capitol.
The Oath Keepers, along with the Proud Boys, have emerged as the most prominent far-right extremists to have taken part in the assault on the Capitol. Prosecutors have collected reams of evidence against them, including encrypted cellphone chats and recordings of online meetings. They have charged its members not only with forcing their way into the building in a military-style “stack,” but also with stationing an armed “quick reaction force” at a hotel in Virginia to be ready to rush into Washington if needed.
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! 10 others charged with SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY.
Depending on the facts, punishment for treason in the US include:
Imprisonment for not less than five years,
The death penalty
A fine of not less than $10,000
I say fine them each their entire life savings and property worth, then imprison them for five years, then give them the death penalty.

The first but Likely not the last
