Mike Pence Says He’s ‘Proud’ Biden Was Certified on Jan. 6

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.

What nonsense. Mike Pence is 100% correct. Nowhere in the Constitution does a VP have such power. Mike Pence was a loyal and outstanding Vice President. He is capable of
being an equally fine President.

A nice Christian guy would not vote for the plagiarist womanizer and money grabbing Joe Biden .A nice Christian guy would not vote for a former VP who cashed in on his VP title with China, the Ukraine and Russia. Some one ask what this’nice Christian guy’ thinks of his hero now that Biden want’s to cancel Christianity, and pay for abortions in America and other countries. He should be forced to answer that question before the voters who had faith in his honesty and words. Seems he and his wife played their constituents for suckers.

Well….pray-tell Mr. Mike Pence…of course no “one person” could choose American president…American citizens choose our president. Made no sense for him to even make that statement because NO ONE was asking that of him…and it WAS LAWFUL to send back to states/allow a congressional committee time for scrutiny of election, considering the overwhelming evidence of existence of fraud.

Pence should go home and actually read the Bible that he likes to quote. ” Matthew 15:8. These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but the rules taught by men.” They have pushed aside the Bible and made up their own God and religion, one that is more palatable and (politically correct to them.) The most diabolical thing about this is that many have done this in Jesus Christ’s name……This is the greatest deception. Men thought they could do anything and that God wouldn’t see; or if He saw He wouldn’t care. They have grossly underestimated God.

I don’t see what Pence did, or his clarifying remarks as being anti-Trump. He did what the law called for and what he felt was right. He did not slam Trump. When Trump runs again he will select a female running mate. Pence actually did Trump a favor. Had pence been dumped in favor of a woman, Trump most likely would have won.

Constitutionally Pence didn’t have to select either slate of electors from the swing states. All he had to do was send it back to the House of Representatives for a state by state vote, one vote per state. Prior to the senate hearing on 1/6 he had already had a letter he presented to Pelosi that he would not elect to decertify the electoral college. Pence lied to Georgia, and he let our country down. His political career is over. And he has a lot of skeletons in his closet!

It just goes to show you Pence is not an American patriot. He is as much a traitor as all the Democrats in Washington DC. They all voted to Murder all these unborn babies for no reason at all, just because the mothers didn’t want to raise them. I could understand if it was because the mother was going to die if she were to continue with the pregnancy. It isn’t that though.it is because she didn’t take precautions when she was out having fun with men. This is not a good reason, if she had been raped or it was incest I could understand it also. It is getting in the way of their fun is not a reason I understand. If our children had come to us, my wife and I would have taken the child in until the daughter or sons could have taken over, the responsibility of child rearing. Just because it impacts their livelihood it should not be the answer, where are their parents and how could they allow a family member be murdered. This is another ploy by the Democrats because they do not want to pay welfare for all the children that would fall into their system. It is a money issue and it is racist because these clinics are mostly in welfare districts.

Pence is a lying obfuscator, In no way can the process see Pence handing Trump a second term – the role of the VP is to put the decision back to the states with each state having one vote – the system was designed to overcome the very thing we saw in the November election – electoral college fraud fraud – election theft.
Again Pence is a Lying obfuscator, bringing shame to American Masonry

I always had the greatest respect for Mike Pence and believed in my heart that if something happened to Donald Trump that Pence would step in and be a fine President. He has strayed from his commitment and while he might be right about his lack of authority he has demonstrated his disrespect for President Trump on several occasions. It is all about the “power” of the office of the President which seems to captivate politicians. Trump was the real deal, rough around the edges, (the Rodney Dangerfield type) but his focus was never about Donald Trump but always about making America Great Again.

I read an article about these people getting $2 million to write a book. The aim was that they received no money until the $2 million was paid back from the book sales. George Soros’ name was mentioned as being involved. Can’t remember the name of the Company but Pence was supposed going to write 2 books for them. The people who worked for the Company demanded they not accept Pence. But they accepted Hunter Biden. He was paid $2 million but hasn’t sold even a third of the money he was given. Is the $2 million a payment for something they want?

Either Pence is too dumb to see the truth, or he was bought off by the far-left Democrats. The chances are? 50/50. Pence could have and should have returned the contested delegates to the various state legislators for proofing. He had a very good historical example from none other than Thomas Jefferson in 1800. His stated idea that “one man” should never elect the president is a total “red herring” – and he fully knows it. He sold out Donald Trump, and did it on purpose! He did not see Trump as enough of an “elitist” to be the American president, and thought he was too “crude” to be in that high office. Pence is more than a little “elitist” himself, and could even be considered a bit of a “royalist” – in the old British use of the term. He is a poor second to Trump, as much as I disagree with much of what Trump did..

He made the most disastrous mistake in American political history, and we, the people, are paying for HIS mistake.

For sure there is one idea “more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president.” That idea is that a group of criminals paid for by Mark Zuckerberg could steal election of the American President.
