In an exclusive ABC News interview, former Vice President Mike Pence expressed dissatisfaction with the possible arrest of former President Donald Trump and expanded on pointed remarks regarding his former boss and the Capitol insurrection -- as well as his vision for the future of the country as he mulls a potential 2024 presidential bid. In a sit-down in Des Moines, Iowa, that aired Sunday, Pence told ABC "This Week" co-anchor Jonathan Karl that Trump's handling of Jan. 6 was one of the reasons the country and, perhaps more pointedly, Republicans need a "fresh start." Pence, who has been traveling across the country and recently released a memoir, has not been shy in suggesting that his party should be looking elsewhere for candidates for the White House, repeatedly saying he's confident there will be "better choices" than Trump even as he says he has not yet made a decision about running himself.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Sunday pushed back on former President Donald Trump over his call to protest his potential arrest related to paying the adult film star Stormy Daniels. "Let's be clear about what's going on here: No one is above the law, not even the former president of the United States, and if there has been an investigation, and that investigation should be allowed to go forward appropriately, if it's time to bring indictments, then they'll bring indictments," Warren said. In a statement on social media on Saturday, Trump claimed he would be arrested on Tuesday and that his supporters should protest to "take our nation back."
Across the country, Republican lawmakers have introduced legislation that restricts transgender health care for minors. Medical experts say that understanding transgender identities, gender dysphoria and how gender-affirming treatments work is key to understanding the impact these bans may have on patients.

On the third anniversary of COVID-19 being declared a global pandemic, public health experts can point to clear instances where the United States succeeded in beating back the virus and others where it didn't. Public health experts said that while the U.S. government and federal health agencies succeeded in many aspects -- including the rollout of vaccines and at-home tests -- there are also lessons to be learned from mixed messaging. "I think it's important to remember that we lost millions and millions of lives and that we don't forget all the things we've learned," Dr. Priya Sampathkumar, a professor of medicine and the head of infection control for Mayo Clinic, told ABC News.

Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to Moscow on Monday to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin will be a significant moment, punching a hole in the international isolation that's surrounded Putin since the start of his invasion of Ukraine and signaling China now sees far less need to publicly distance itself from Putin amid the war. The two-day state visit will be Xi's first trip to Russia since the war began and comes as Western countries are increasingly concerned China is moving to more actively support Moscow and play a more assertive role in shaping the conflict, at a moment when Ukraine is readying for a much-anticipated spring counteroffensive.

Former Vice President Mike Pence indicated that he is not challenging all aspects of the subpoena issued last month by special counsel Jack Smith in his probe of the failed attempt by then-President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 election. Pence, who has argued that he is covered by the "speech and debate clause" that shields congressional officials from testimony related to their work, was pressed by ABC "This Week" co-anchor Jonathan Karl on whether he was objecting to every topic area covered by the subpoena. "We're not asserting executive privilege, which may encompass other discussions," Pence told Karl in a sit-down for "This Week."
