Pence Tells Trump Supporters to ‘Keep within the Combat’ — However It is ‘Futile’

Alarm bells rang on Tuesday as Pence continued the Trump team’s false election fraud rhetoric – even after various investigations failed to obtain evidence. “Stay in the fight,” he urged.

It is federal law that Congress must meet on January 6th to open each state’s sealed certificates that contain a record of their electoral votes. At that time, non-partisan representatives from both chambers read the results aloud and carried out an official census.

The President of the Senate, in this case Vice President Mike Pence, then chairs the meeting and declares the winner from the official list.

That’s how it happened historically, but what if Pence makes the decision not to announce the winner as President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-Elect Kamala Harris? Then things get tricky.

“The vice president’s role as chairman is often uncomfortable, as will be the case for Pence, who will announce Biden’s victory – and his own defeat – once the votes are counted. It will be particularly tense for the former Indiana congressman because his boss Trump refused to admit, ”the Associated Press reported in its statement article.

“I think at some point you have to realize that despite your best efforts, you’ve been unsuccessful,” Texas Senator John Cornyn told reporters, hoping anyone who raised the idea of ​​an objection would realize it did would be pointless and unnecessary. “
