Pence Does Not Join Lawmakers in Eleventh-Hour Plan to Overturn Election

Attorneys representing Rep. Louie Gohmert and a group of Arizona Republicans indicated that Vice President Mike Pence is not in agreement with their lawsuit filed with a Texas court earlier this week. According to a court filing, Vice President Pence did not agree with Gohmert’s position that he has the authority to choose between counting Republican and Democrat electoral votes in states where both parties submitted votes.

Earlier this week, Gohmert’s lawyers met with the Vice President’s counsel to see if the two sides could come to an agreement however Pence’s team remained firmly opposed to Gohmert’s position.

Fox News reports:

In the teleconference, Plaintiffs’ counsel made a meaningful attempt to resolve the underlying legal issues by agreement, including advising the Vice President’s counsel that Plaintiffs intended to seek immediate injunctive relief in the event the parties did not agree,” the filing said. “Those discussions were not successful in reaching an agreement and this lawsuit was filed.”

From the filing, it is unclear if Pence was specifically asked to count the Republican votes instead of the Democratic ones or if the two sides simply discussed the legal issues surrounding whether he had the authority to do so. Fox News reached out to counsel for Gohmert and the Arizona Republican electors for clarification but he did not immediately respond.

The lawsuit claims that if more than one party has cast electoral votes, the Constitution allows Pence to decide which party’s votes to count when Congress meets to formally announce the winner of the election Jan. 6, 2021. In Arizona and other battleground states that President-elect Joe Biden won in November’s election, the slate of Republican electors — whose votes would have been certified had President Trump won — met on Dec. 14 and cast votes in case legal challenges of the Democrats’ victory were successful.

While the Electoral Counting Act details a process of handling objections to votes that involves both the House and Senate, Gohmert’s lawsuit claims that this law runs contrary to the 12th Amendment, which outlines the process of counting electoral votes. While the 12th Amendment does not specifically address what happens in the event of disputed votes, it does say that if no candidate has a majority, it is up to the House of Representatives to choose the president.

In Rep. Gohmert’s lawsuit, he claims that because the 12th Amendment excludes the Senate in the process, the Electoral Counting Act is unconstitutional for including the Senate in the dispute resolution process.

  1. No doubt, if the table was turned, the Democrats would most certainly oblige us.

    Stop falling for the prince of lies every time he opens his mouth.

      1. Pence is not Pence! Do some research. God believed President Trump is the man for the job at this moment in time. So stop your hatred Kennedy tried to overturn the corrupt Fed system and introduce NESARA and he got assasinated. 9/11 was used as a diversion by Bush Senior and his corrupt CIA when they good people once again tried to remove the Feds and bring in NESARA. Now President Trump has actually done it. The First living President in History to achieve the breaking up of corruption. Media brainwashing and sheer hatred for him proves he is doing the right thing. And God is behind him all the way. Guardian Angels surround this President. Albert direct your hatred into true knowledge and discover what the Cabal really had in mind for Humanity.

        1. I totally agree! And God will not allow satan to set up his kingdom by allowing him to put a demented puppet in our WH! That criminal Biden will also put Israel in danger too as well as america! God will not allow this, I believe God will intervene against all of them!

      2. Well that figures! Typical libtard fool too stupid to know and understand that if it wasn’t for President Trump, their dirtbag democrats would have them in poverty and slavery!

        1. He’s having a Hessy Fit John. Mr Hess does seem to be on the Wrong side of the Equation. The Lefties just don’t make sense. The Economy was doing fine for the last few years, getting ppl into work and higher wages and less regulations and so on. Then the Virus hits and a few Dumb-ocrat Mayors, Governors and the House see the opportunity to hurt President Trump and take it. Then we ALL get screwed by the actions of a Juvenile Minority. All I can say is I’m glad I live in Australia. Good Luck America and President Trump.

    1. Wow! Let’s pray that we get all taken care of🙏🙏🙏🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Please pray for your country & your President Trump🙏🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 God Bless You🙏🙏🌹

  2. I suppose Pence is trying to follow the laws and customs of this great nation we live in, called the USA where those laws customs and ways of doing things have made this great Democracy last so long and do so well.

        1. You didn’t ‘fire’ Trump – you stole the election, broke the Constitution, and LIED AND CHEAT all the way!! But what can be expected from socialist/fascist party of lies and destruction.Ing

          1. if we don’t get this election fixed their will never be a free fair election
            ever again this country

          2. Actually, you are right…I don’t know what I was thinking. I’m a chronic glue sniffer and it makes me delusional at times. Mr. Trump is the man we need…MAGA!

        2. We the American People Did Not Fire President Trump !!!!! I he George Soros bought & paid for Democratic swamp rats paid illegal people, dead people to vote, when that did not work then they shut down the voting & had selected states swamp rats to switch Trump votes to over come Trump lead!!! All proven ! Only a paid off Representative or a paid troll spreads swamp trash like you

          1. Hess, your party has cheated in every election. But this election, they, they went iff the charts. You people WOULD NEVER win if you did not CHEAT! your dems are truly EVIL. And when it all comes out, I fill sorry for you. You can’t think for yourself. Sad!

          1. No, you’re dead wrong & if you don’t really see what is taking place, it’s sad! That’s why 74 million Patriots voted for Pre🙏🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🌹🌹🤗sident Trump🌹🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏

          2. Doesn’t matter who’s a moron just that we don’t want Kamala Harris as Prez. She will put us all in camps

        3. Fired? No instead that dirty little creep cheated his way into our election! He will regret this because the majority of americans will not ever respect this troll nor will we comply and accept this imposter as president!

          1. Trump won the electric, but it was stolen from him. I believe the day after the 2016 election after Trump won the Democrats started working on a plan for the 2020 election to make sure it didn’t happen again. They were positive there was no way old lady Clinton wouldn’t be the next president and boy were they shocked!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          2. Oh yeah! Which cop or commie are you going to stop when they march you to a prison camp for who you are and let you freeze or starve to death! Also, they want to change our minds!

          1. No. He did NOT win. Our president, we the people’s president was cheated. Such bs. Orchestrated fraud by the Democrat frs. 😡😡😡😡😡

          2. Believe buddy, you think these communist are going to bet n pet you! NO, you will go to the camps n have your brain scrambled to!

        4. No, he was not fired you lousy Demrats stole, lied and think you can get away with it. You are almost found out and in the end you will come to no good.

      1. What makes America a Republic other than the unequal representation in the Electoral College? The idea that a Negro or an Indian are not the full measure of a man……

    1. “I pledge allegiance to the flag and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

      1. You are a typical deplorable Trump supporter.
        You don’t even know the words of our Pledge of Allegiance.
        You foolish, foolish little boy.

    2. We are NOT a Democracy! We are a Representative Republic! HUGE Difference and the founders knew it! Obviously, you don’t understand what we have here…

      The FACT there are issues in dispute brings rise to the issue that the FRAUD (let’s call it what it is rather than sugar coating it by saying irregularities).

      The election should not be finalized until the states in dispute have had ALL evidence on both sides is put on display and a determination can be concluded. IF there was fraud, the state should bring forth New Electors as provided for in the Constitution designated by THE STATE LEGISLATURE, who have the SOLE DISCRETION to put forth electors.

    3. Huh? Are you kidding? Pence needs to do what’s right and throw out fake software tainted bogus ballots and China interferrence for our democracy! He either follows God or he is a hypocrite chri stian

      1. Pence is with the Satanist. He’s afraid he will be shot for treason! Just so you know. But I bet Trump would forgive him!

    4. The reason this great nation has lasted so long is that we have generally held elections with very small amounts of election fraud. The fraud that existed did not change the outcome of the national election. This Republic cannot stand if it allows states to use mail in ballots that does not require voter id and signature verification as happened in Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada and Pennsylvania. When there is no penalty for fraudulent election officials, the other parties will have to do the same if they ever want to win an election.


      1. That’s exactly what Pence is looking at, but he ain’t getting my vote for not being loyal to Trump and our Republic.

    1. I only have confidence in God Almighty, and Queen of Angels and Saints, to overturn this sham of an election in the swing states. Pence is obviously too timid to stand up to the establishment,

        1. Here we go with the black protesrant Catholic-bashing again. The mother of the Son of God is thereby the Mother of God, AND the Queen of Angels and Saints AND the “terror of demons”…who have attested to it during exorcisms conducted by Catholic priests. You protestants use the Bible as tho you invented it. How do you know it is the Word of God? That’s right…the CHURCH proclaimes it so. The Bible is an inanimate object. The Church, from whence the Bible (Sacred Scripture) came is the loving, breathing Mystical Body of Christ who has the authority from Christ to interpret and expand upon Scripture. Love Christ, love His Church.

    2. Well Maurice you have a hell of a lot more confidence in Pence than I do…Republicans are spineless cowards that are more than willing to sacrafice this country and the hard working citizens to pees the liberal Democrats…The only one I have any confidence in is President Trump and him alone !!!

      1. Pence is not only obligated to follow the law and the US Constitution in regards to elections, it is his duty, along with all congress-members and Supreme Court justices to make sure only “natural born Citizens” are eligible to be US presidents and vice-presidents. Neither one of Kamala Harris’s parents were US citizens at the time of her birth.

  3. if it is unclear what they asked of Pence!!!?? What the Hell are you Wining about? Your words are convoluted and totally inaccurate accusing Pence as Back Stabbing Trump puts you on my Tratore List!

    1. The word you are using is misspelled. ..whining and/or traitor. Pence is not fighting the establishment and is in the ring with Mitch McConnell. You can not certify or validate a fraudulent election. It is morally reprehensible. He is not in agreement with Louis Gohmert in his lawsuit, and made that clear yesterday, because he has no courage. I would die before certifying a rigged election, especially from swing states.

        1. How would you know what was found when the courts refused an evidentiary hearing to determine if in fact the allegations of fraud are a basis to continue legal actions.

          1. The courts are bought n paid for. Treason is their reason. If Trump wins all these traitors will not just be spanked. Remember the Rosenbergs! Both shot during WW2 for treason. And it was only sub plans. Think what these guys have done!

      1. Yes you can, it’s a challenge of certain states electors. It was done in Thomas Jefferson’s day, Kennedy/Nixon, Gore/Bush. And the President of the senate has the final say. The liberals have something big, bigger than religious affiliations on him!

    2. Pence is to hold the line, why, do you not know? He is to throw out the states who have the fraud ballots n now he won’t do it.
      He is the VP, that’s his job! He is the head of the Senate. He can say no to one swing state and declare Trump as the winner,

  4. If Pence refuses to move forward by rejecting the phony results of this rigged election, his political career in this country is done! Over, Wiped-out! He will have proven himself to be a liar, a Swamper, a Deep State Troll just like all the other vile, disgusting politicians in DC and he would never be elected to anything again. Career over! However, if he stands with Trump to over-power the Left, he will be hailed as the individual the saved our Democracy and would surely be elected President in 2024 at the end of Trump’s Presidency!

    1. Pence has bee either promised something by Soros or 0bama has some dirt on Pence that Mr. Clean couldn’t take off. Either way…

    2. If Trump not in then persecution begins.
      Listen, learn, no future if you are an American! The Dems want the Sudan to have 505 b and other stupid crap but Americans get 600.00 check?! Open your eyes Patriots! Go to Washington and stand with our really elected President!!! Or die by the slow communist ways!

  5. Some people forget all the lies Pence did to protect trump’s lies. If obeying the law is being a traitor, then, so be it. Maybe Pence can no longer continue a lapdog and now realizes that all of that was hurting our Country.

  6. Corrupt,lying,dementia,slo,joe, the puppet, is not mentally fit to be president, besides he’s linked to his crackhead son’s corruption, so this jackass can’t be president. Since when has a crminal under investigation been elected president, never, and it isn’t going happen jan 6th, the biden cartel needs to be investigated by a special prosecutor, like what was done to Trump, let’s get on that right now folks, clinton cartel,obummer cartel,biden cartel

      1. Joe and his intermediary Hunter can have all the Money they want and it won’t save them from a Bullet each. I wish I was a Sniper in the American Army!

      1. Well chicken shit Tonge, tell us where u live and we will be there pronto, and we well see who will loose again …you low life snowflake coward !!!

  7. As of this day and hour Pence is opposing Louis Gohmert lawsuit, which is totally correct, in that one cannot validate fraud, abuse or rigged votes. Pence is not n the team right now. Whose team will he follow?

  8. Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward rebellion against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a Constitution and incitement of discontent toward, or rebellion against, established authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interest of sedition, much like Trumpets who try to overturn an election which was declared without fraud by CISA Director Christopher Krebs and Attorney General Barr. Another name for treason, punishable by death.

  9. I believe that Pence has to stand alone at this point. And, that does not preclude him tossing out the corrupt ballots.

    If he fails to make the right choices, a civil war is very likely.

    However, that has nothing to do with VP making the right choice with all the Constitution and laws clearly on the side of a CLEAN ELECTION.

    IF that doesn’t happen, there will be a humongous market selloff on 7 Jan.

  10. Looks like nobody left but President Trump to handle this. He is going to have to pull the trigger on the Insurrection Act. This appears to be the only way.

  11. There’s a LOT of questions about the voting in those swing states, and a lot of data on possible fraud. The courts have refused to hear out the issues. Pence CAN turn the resolution over to the House to resolve, if he wishes, and I think he should.

    Ultimately, Roberts made an error in refusing to hear this case, as did the 3 Trump appointees…guided by Roberts. The two best Justices are Alito and Thomas.

    But I do not believe Biden won in an honest fashion. He has never been an honest man.

    1. Sorry: that’s “turn the ELECTION to the House for resolution.”

      The hero of this story is Hawley, who, if Trump does not prevail, is the front runner for 2024. Being staunch and decisive MATTERS.

  12. Here’s an interesting read…… “AT&T got a contract to do forensic audit on Dominion voting machines and those machines were being moved to Nashville this past week. The former owner of the AT&T building in Nashville, William Kennard, is a board member for Cerberus Capital Management and AT&T…. He also was Bill Clinton’s FCC chair, and Obama’s Ambassador to the EU. Dominion voting is owned by Cerberus Capital Management….Cerberus is run by Staple Street Execs. Joe Bidens Brother in Law, Steven Owens, is the cofounder of Staple Street Execs along with William Kennard (mentioned above). Super Computer in TN was connected to the AT&T internet in NASHVILLE…. yesterday evening the Cumberland river cooling system was compromised due to internet outage and Supercomputer fried….. If you don’t know, “Kraken” is a reference to a supercomputer former prosecutor, Sidney Powell, has been talking about. So, the explosion “just happened” to be at the AT&T location where they “just so happen” to control the cooling system for the super computer and house the dominion voting machines and drives for forensic audit… Does it make sense now why no lives were lost? Does it make sense now why the FBI task lead couldn’t even put together a coherent sentence in the press conference yesterday? Does it make sense why the mayor was making light of the situation, almost laughing yesterday?”
    Let’s add the fact that it is too hard on voters to have a “registration” card but now these same people want everyone to have a “Covid 19” identification card. No wonder it was so easy for the dems to doctor whatever they wanted. Most of the RINOS vote for them anyway (Mitch comes to mind)

  13. Since when did it become alright to lie, cheat and steal an election, it’s happening right in front of our eyes. It has been proven that the dead, unregistered people can vote, they can vote numerous times and get caught at it. Nothing happens! One thing is for certain the people mentioned above will never make Heaven their home. God says in His word the Bible people who do even one of the above, will spend eternity in HELL!

  14. This is crap! Those dirtbags are all corrupt and so are all of those judges, we all know this i s fraud and they are hiding their crimes! So President Trump should say ok you want to play those games? Ok He should declare Martial Law and make this sham of an election null and void and they can take their damn software cheaters and shove it! Then lets see how that imposter does cheating and miraculously takes the lead in these key states! We need to be through with this crap once and for all!

  15. V.PRESIDENT Mike Pence is supposed to do this from what I have read & others have agreed! I believe that all these other politicians are just instigators! American people (PATRIOTS) are getting really fed up with all the questions being asked by the instigators!
    Let V.PRESIDENT Mike Pence do his job!🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  16. What is going on Guys? nobody fired our President Donald Trump. it’s the demorats who cheated in the election. got it? just continue to pray for our country and our freedom.

  17. Pence has always been a never-Trumper. Let’s not forget that Pence created his own SUPER-PAC just months into office in 2016 and also created a website promoting his own presidential candidacy should Trump be removed during the 2016 election. Snake…

    Bad choice which is now gonna bite Trump you-know-where…

    Hello President Bite-Me for the next couple of weeks until Camel-Toe Harris takes over Feb. 1…

  18. This shows you the difference Between the democrats and the republicans…the Dems never back down from a challenge ..they do whatever is necessary to WIN…legal or not….they stick together …they back each other and defend each other…The republicans need to do the same..They need some backbone..some courage !! .YOU MUST FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE !!!

    1. It’s about fighting for what’s right. Our elections and our CONSTITUTION !!💪 From Rick and Kara the Patriots. Please remember that V.P. Pence . We pray for you and the President everyday.

  19. Dear V.P. Pence you know the Election was stolen from you and President Trump . We’re praying 🙏 that you’ll do the right thing and take the electors votes from the Republicans in those fraud filled states. GOD and you and the majority of the American people know and have the proof that the Democrats stole the Election. DO what’s right , GOD will hold all of us accountable if we don’t fight for what’s right. YOU KNOW THAT’S TRUE !! We the true AMERICANS are definitely depending on you. We pray for you and the President everyday 🙏 GOD put you 2 together for a reason. Cling to each other and our constitution. From Rick and Kara the Patriots 😀😃👍 we love our country and our 2 leaders. FAITH , FAMILY and FREEDOM !! Remember ?

  20. President Trump just needs to declare marshal law n have military tribunals do all of the judging of all the criminal s and finally clean the swamp out and get this country back where it needs to be

  21. Very disappointed with VP Pence. Does not surprise me. Have had mixed feelings about him from the beginning. God bless and protect all who are the patriots. God is in charge and He is our victor.
