Georgia prosecutors have reportedly listed former Vice President Mike Pence as a witness who may be called to testify at the trial against former President Donald Trump and his allies for their alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in the state.

Fulton County prosecutors' witness lists have not been published, but the most recent version produced days ago included around 150 names, CNN reported Wednesday, citing documents that remain under seal. 

Pence has already testified in special counsel Jack Smith's federal probe of Trump's alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election, but he has not played a major role in the Georgia criminal case. 

The former vice president may become a key witness in the case, as he is one of Trump's few previous close allies to strongly rebuke the former president over his 2020 election claims. 

A spokesperson for Pence declined to give comment to the cable network. 

Trump and his 18 co-conspirators all initially pleaded not guilty in September to charges related to the alleged election scheme. However, Four people in the case have subsequently pleaded guilty, including former Republican poll watcher Scott Hall and Trump attorneys Jenna EllisSidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro.

News about Pence's potential testimony comes one day after top-ranking House Republicans launched a probe into potential collusion between the Democratic Jan. 6 Capitol riot committee and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
