Former Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence admitted in a Fox News interview that he could have rejected 2020 electors from contested states that made illegal changes to election laws and saw demonstrable instances of election fraud. Still, he refused to do it and opted instead to complete the process of installing Joe Biden as America’s 46th President.
During a recent interview with Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum, former Vice President Mike Pence attempted to slam 45th President Donald Trump and his “gaggle of crackpot lawyers” for asking him to use his constitutional authority as VP to reject electoral votes from contested states which, as Pence has previously admitted, ran illegal elections.
By way of his attempted slam, Pence admitted that the steps laid out in the White House’s “Pence Card” memo, which was exclusively published in December 2020 by National File, were legitimate and that his rejection of contested electoral votes would have turned the issue over to Congress, as prescribed by the US Constitution.
But Pence opted not to do it anyways and put the finishing touches on the installation of Joe Biden as President.
“It wasn’t just that they asked for a pause [in certification],” said Pence.
“The President specifically asked me, and his gaggle of crackpot lawyers asked me, to literally reject votes, which would’ve resulted in the issue being turned over to the House of Representatives,” explained Pence, adding that, if he had rejected the votes, “literally chaos would’ve ensued.”
“So, Martha,” Pence went on, “I just, people, people can read the indictment [of President Trump in DC] and frankly, I’ve said before, I had hoped that it’d not come to this point. You know, I don’t know if the government can meet the standard, the burden of proof beyond reasonable doubt for criminal charges. But the American People deserve to know that President Trump and his advisors didn’t just ask me to pause, they asked me to reject votes, return votes, essentially to overturn the election.”

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

Pence’s admission to Fox News and Martha MacCallum that he could have rejected contested and illegal electoral votes but refused to do so doesn’t mark the first time that the former Vice President and long-shot 2024 GOP presidential candidate has seemingly admitted that he willfully dropped the ball during 2020’s “election overtime”.
In a previous interview, Mike Pence admitted that multiple states held illegal elections in 2020, but he chose to stand down and certify the illegal results anyway.
There are “states across the country that conducted their elections outside of how the state legislatures had approved them,” said Pence.
Mike Pence, in his own words, admits that multiple states held ILLEGAL ELECTIONS in 2020.
Yet he chose to stand down, and certify the ILLEGAL RESULTS.
Mike Pence is a COWARD and a TRAITOR and a TOOL OF THE DEEP STATE.
