45th President Donald Trump on Monday fired back at former Vice President Mike Pence after the latter said his former boss would be held “accountable” for the events of January 6, 2021.
The former president asserted that as Vice President, Pence had the authority and legal obligation to demand that certain swing states remedy their reported election problems prior to sending their slates of electors to Congress, in order to ensure the integrity of the election. His refusal to act, especially after telling supporters that some action would be taken, is what Trump claims sparked the unrest on January 6.
“Had he sent the votes back to the legislatures, they wouldn’t have had a problem with Jan. 6, so in many ways you can blame him for Jan. 6,” Trump said to reporters on his plane while en route to Iowa for his rally earlier this week.
“Had he sent them back to Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, the states, I believe, No. 1, you have had a different outcome,” said Trump, “But I also believe you wouldn’t have had ‘Jan. 6’ as we call it.”
The remarks follow Pence’s anti-Trump coming out party at a Washington, D.C. dinner, where he claimed his former boss put his family in danger and will be held “accountable” for the mostly peaceful January 6 protests.
Trump’s remarks follow those made by American Greatness reporter Julie Kelly, a conservative reporter who has followed the January 6 beat for more than two years.
“Pence waited until the joint session of Congress convened at 1pm to release his letter informing Trump (and the public) he didn’t have authority to halt count. He teased for days before that he might even though his aides now say he knew by Jan 4 he wouldn’t do anything,” Kelly wrote earlier this week.
“His last minute move enraged the crowd. Videos (Ryan Nichols for example) of protesters raging about Pence have been entered as evidence to justify pretrial detention and jail sentences.”
It takes a lot of courage to stand up and demand that the bogus vote tallies be rectified. If (when) the vote is overturned, a whole new can of worms is opened and most, apparently, would rather just take the loss than address the worst degradation of our Constitution and threat to our republic in history.
There were no “bogus vote tallies”. There was only a mentally unbalanced lying loser who repeatedly told you so.
Pelosi and the administrative state orchestrated a coup.
Manipulative social media is poisoning people’s minds.
Do you mean like Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter before Must bought it that censured conservatives and allowed lies from the left going so far as to not allow comments on the Hunter Biden laptop from Hell that was proven true?
You’re an idiot.
There were thousands. That was a totally corrupt election giving us a corrupt government.
It is a constitutional prerogative to challenge an election for President. The orchestrated covert false flag was executed so that house rules could be in place after the emergency had been made official.
When you have a totally corrupt party lusting after totalitarianism such as our beloved Democrats in proximity of any election, it would be prudent to challenge it. They cheated in 2016 but didn’t cheat where it counted most. In 2020 they knew idiot Biden didn’t have a chance, so they frauded the shit out of it. Same thing in Arizona and Georgia to protect their control of the Senate (the house was a lost cause). One thing can be guaranteed: Democrats are going to cheat.
Endless repetition of a lie doesn’t make it true. There’s never been a shred of credible evidence presented supporting Trump’s stolen election bullshit. Even republican federal judges that he appointed himself rejected the nonsense submitted to their courts.
And that dawned on you when? Certainly not the years you have claimed the Steele dossier was true.
I wish you had been aware of that fact during the hoaxes of Russian collusion, good Nazis, emoluments, quid pro quo, Russian bounties, disparaging veterans, taxes and, finally, insurrection. You’ve always been susceptible to any leftist lie, but when faced with something like STATE FARM ARENA you can’t face the facts.
Pence did not have the authority, that was congress, it was their responsibility to examine every objection. Nancy knew this and set up the false flags to stop the examination.
Sure. Disrupt the constitutional process that will finalize your own candidate’s victory.
Sure. Then accuse your opposition of violence while you ignored your own storm troopers that burned down whole neighborhoods during the summer of love.
And don’t forget, be sure to get your daughter to come in and film. Film what? The plants in your office?
Sure. They disrupted the Constitutional process that would finalize a challenged election that would be solidified without examination…thusly admitting their own guilt in rigging the election.
That’s what happened.
The deep state and other players decide on the President long before the election.
Trump’s legal and democratic win confirmed this.
True. In fact, their designated officials—both democrat and republican—formally certified the electoral college results that were about to be counted.
And the idiot stalker Gary Miller strikes again using the Bill Reed moniker. Deleted and banned once again. Of course Greg loves the losers opinion.
Pence is a Pinhead who wants to be on the 6:00 News
