Pence Bucks Trump: ‘I Did Not Have the Authority to Overturn the Vote’

In a strong rebuke to former President Trump on Friday, former Vice President Mike Pence called the suggestion that he might be able to change the results of next year’s election “un-American.”

“In our party, there are some members who believe that, as the presiding officer over the joint session of Congress, I had the ability to reject Electoral College votes on my own initiative. I’ve also been informed this week that President Trump has stated that I have the authority to ‘overturn the election.’ “Pence made the remarks while speaking at a Federalist Society gathering in Florida.

“President Trump is completely incorrect. I didn’t have the authority to overturn the election “Pence went on to say more. “The presidency belongs to the people of the United States, and only to the people of the United States. To be honest, there is practically no idea that is more un-American than the thought that any single person might be elected president of the United States.”

“I had no authority to influence the outcome of our election within the terms of the Constitution. In addition, if we defeat them in 2024, Kamala Harris will have no legal basis to challenge the results “To a round of applause, Vice President Pence said

President Donald Trump has alleged that the 2020 election was rigged for more than a year, and Vice President Mike Pence’s words marked his most direct rupture yet with his former boss. Trump has often criticized Vice President Mike Pence for certifying the Electoral College results on Jan. 6, 2021, after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to halt the certification process.

Earlier this week, Trump stated directly that Vice President Pence should have unilaterally annulled the election results that had declared Joe Biden president on that particular day. Later, Trump proposed that a House committee examining the incident on January 6 should look into why Vice President Mike Pence did not dispute the election results.

As a result of the events of January 6, 2021, several members of Congress have expressed interest in improving the Electoral Count Act, which governs the manner in which votes are counted and validated by Congress.

VP Mike Pence made his remarks on Friday as part of a broader address about the importance of conservatives remaining committed to the Constitution and rejecting radical ideologies.

“I understand the dissatisfaction that many people have had since the last election. I was on the list of those who will vote. But, whatever the future holds, I am confident that we fulfilled our responsibilities that day “Pence made the statement.

“The truth is that there is more at risk than our political fortunes or the prospects of our party. In the event that we lose faith in the Constitution, we will not only lose elections, but we will also lose our country “Pence was also added.

As a result, Pence’s comments on Jan. 6 and conservative principles were particularly noteworthy, given that they were made just hours after the Republican National Committee formally censured Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) for their participation in the House committee investigating the riot, as well as for their participation in a broader effort by some Republican leaders to downplay the events of that day.

Conservatives should concentrate on the future, according to the former vice president, who pointed to issues such as immigration, inflation, crime, and foreign policy as areas where Republicans can present an alternative agenda to the Biden administration.

Pence is widely seen as a prospective Republican presidential candidate in 2024, and his visits to early voting states such as Iowa, South Carolina, and New Hampshire have fueled talk about a possible campaign.

However, given the intense support for the former president among Republican voters, his actions to certify the election, as well as his criticism of Trump on Friday, are likely to make his path to the nomination more difficult if he decides to run for president.
