Former Vice President Mike Pence rebuked Trump’s claims he had the ability to halt Congress’ certification of Joe Biden on January 6th. During a speech at the Reagan Library on Pence reiterated that he did not have the Constitutional power to reject electoral votes for Joe Biden.

The Hill reports:

“Now there are those in our party who believe that in my position as presiding officer over the joint session that I possess the authority to reject or return electoral votes certified by the states,” Pence said. “The Constitution provides the vice president with no such authority before the joint session of Congress.”

Some Republicans, including former President Trump, called for Pence to reject electoral votes on Jan. 6.

“And the truth is, there is almost no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president,” Pence said. “And I will always be proud that we did our part on that tragic day to reconvene the Congress and fulfilled our duty under the Constitution.”

Pence has been rejected by some in his party due to his stance on the issue, and was recently heckled during a speech at a conservative conference.

Pence has previously said he’s unsure if he and Trump will ever see eye-to-eye on the events of January 6th.

Just like Trump should stop talking about election fraud and himself, Pence needs to stop virtue signaling with his certification of likely fraudulent election results on 1/6/21. If Pence thinks he’d have a shot as the Republican presidential candidate in 2024, he needs to drop this line, pronto.

Say What???? A number of states wanted additional time (10 days) to recheck/audit before certification by senate. Needed a House Member and a Senate Member to challenge. First on list was Arizona to challenge, but the worst disaster since the Civil War happened (?????) The Surge of Lennen_____whoops The Capital. The vote certification thousands of sworn statement election not on the up and up, why are so many Rinos and Demon Rats not wanting investigating/forensic audits (not recounts)???? The surge, who killed Ashley? Fake Trump supporters? Hard core radical instigators? Cops suddenly leaving broken windows/an invite in? FBI involved? No reinforcements yet known problems well before event? Pelosi in charge of Capitol Police? No speedy trials or charges? Unseen videos? Video of Trump supporters working with Police to stay legal? All guilty pleas under duress? Police opening the doors/moving barriers? Mike we supported you, your actions/lack of (remember Thomas Jefferson”s), time to take it with your lovely wife and go back under a rock.

It could be that Mr. Pence was operating according to principle. Yet I think he lacked the nerve and took the path of least resistance. A local commentator surmised that Mr. Pence’s decision reveals his underlying presidential aspirations. But all decisions have consequences. His decision resulted in the ruin of the Nation’s rule of law. Massive aversion and revulsion among Republicans would suggest that any such aspirations of Mr. Pence are most unlikely to succeed.

A suggestion to Pence. Shut up about the election. You are making it sound like you need to keep explaining what you did. You have to know that audits are being done in various states and criminal activity on the 2020 election is showing the election was fraud committed by democrat commies. Biden said ” I have the best fraud campaign committee ever.,” And it looks like he wasn’t kidding. Pence, let the audits do their job and stop making it look like you think you should have done differently if you want to run as Vice President or President, okay. Stand your ground on the decision you made that it was what you thought appropriate at the time and that’s now past, it can’t be changed if you wanted it to be changed. Say that and than mention or don’t answer any questions on that choice again. Everybody makes decisions in their lives, some bad, some excellent and some so, so. Everybody.

Exactly. It was in October, 2020 that Biden went on record saying that they have put together the “greatest voter fraud organization in history”. WHY is no-one in the media talking about this???
Hillary is still whining about the election having been “stolen” from her in 2016 but when Trump says the same–and in his case it IS true–he’s made out to be the villain.

So Pence is proud of not overturning the election. He needs to rethink that. The real election had already been overturned by massive fraud, massive theft. As I remember, the legislators of the state of State of Pennsylvania had effectively taken back their rightful authority, to retract what they decided was not a lawful electoral vote, on their part, and present whatever lawful paperwork was necessary, and offer it in trade for what they realized was bogus. That would have transferred their electoral vote to Trump instead of Biden. Trump would have then won the election, preventing the overturn that had been perpetrated by Bidens people.

Pence had nothing to lose if he would have said something in protest (before actually carrying out the procedure to certify the electoral votes) just to let everyone know that he & President Trump were not in agreement with the electoral votes for Biden. He also could have also outright refused to certify the votes at all if he wanted to. If he believed the election was rigged he may have been too afraid to show any dissent. He never really said if he thought there was a problem with the election so it’s possible that he accepted the outcome or maybe he decided for various reasons that he no longer wanted to be vice president, have any connection with Trump. He may have been real happy that everything turned out the way it did. He’s a traitor!!!
