The Hill reports:
Republican presidential candidates Mike Pence and Vivek Ramaswamy exchanged barbs after the former vice president said he was “deeply offended” by Ramaswamy’s comments that he does not believe the 9/11 Commission.
Pence, in an interview with the Union Leader in New Hampshire, addressed Ramaswamy’s comments that the conservative entrepreneur made to Blaze TV when he was asked whether he believed the government about the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
“I understand he was probably in grade school on 9/11 and I was on Capitol Hill,” Pence said. “I think comments like that, conspiracy theories like that, dishonor the service and sacrifice of our armed forces who fought against our enemies determined to kill us,” the former vice president added.

Ramaswamy has hit back on Twitter:
.@Mike_Pence says today he was “deeply offended” that I don’t trust that the government told us the full truth in the 9/11 Commission Report. Well, I find it offensive that our government repeatedly lies to us.
Here’s the TRUTH: the FBI quietly declassified documents in 2021 that definitively reveal the government lied to the public about basic facts of Saudi Arabia’s involvement in 9/11, until documents were declassified and they changed their story 20 years later.
U.S. government officials continue to lie about other matters of public importance – the origin of Covid-19, knowledge about UAPs, Hunter Biden’s laptop, how our money is actually being spent in Ukraine, the Nashville trans shooter manifesto – with a complicit media that just accepts the prevailing narrative without question.
This fuels rampant public distrust. There is no credible evidence that 9/11 was an “inside job,” but ironically, when the government systematically lies about Saudi involvement and the media runs interference, that lends plausibility to an otherwise unlikely claim.
