Former Vice President Mike Pence made a surprising admission recently when he stated that if he had rejected the Electoral College votes, the 2020 election results would have been turned over to the House of Representatives. This revelation came in the wake of former President Trump’s arraignment on conspiracy charges. Pence explained that he was not simply asked to pause the certification process, but was specifically requested by Trump and his team to reject votes, which would have resulted in chaos and a potential overturning of the election results. Pence expressed his hope that it would not have come to this point, but emphasized that the American people deserve to know the truth about the actions of President Trump and his advisors.

Listen to this
Pence just admitted he did have the authority to turn the election over to the House under the Constitution
That means that efforts to prepare for that could not have been an illegal conspiracy pic.twitter.com/0hHRHLQdq6

This statement from Pence is significant because it confirms that he did have the authority to turn the election over to the House under the Constitution. This undermines the narrative that efforts to prepare for such a scenario were part of an illegal conspiracy. It also raises questions about the motivations behind Trump’s actions and his alleged attempts to overturn the election results. The former President has pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to defraud the government, obstruction of an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights. The indictment filed by Special Counsel Jack Smith accuses Trump of enlisting co-conspirators to help him overturn the election and retain power. It alleges that Trump spread lies about election fraud and incited the violent attack on the Capitol on January 6th. As Pence and Trump continue to contend for the GOP nomination, this revelation could have implications for their political futures. Pence’s polling numbers remain in single digits, while Trump maintains a significant lead.
