While his role as Trump’s loyal vice president comes to an end, will he stand up and do the right thing? Good question. We will know the answer on Wednesday.
A federal judge, appointed by outgoing president Donald Trump, ruled against an effort by some Republicans to give Pence unwarranted power to shift the outcome of the election but the division within Republicans continues to affect the party.
“A suit to establish that the Vice President has discretion over the count, filed against the Vice President, is a walking legal contradiction,” the Justice Department argues.
Howley will play the useless foil of Trump’s last-chance attempt to overturn the will of voters from the Nov. 3 election, a final stunt of a dying presidency.
In a rare break from one of Trump’s lies and fantasies, the Senate Majority Leader says backing a long-shot stunt to try and overturn the decision of the Electoral College is an attempt to subvert the voters and American democracy.
But the Senate Majority Leader also lauded defeated president Donald Trump for his Supreme Court appointments and other claimed “accomplishments” while other Republicans say the fight to overturn democracy is “not over.”
Trump continues to claim he won the election but the democratic process, while under constant fire by an autocratic wannabe, held and bestowed the final win to President-elect Joe Biden.
As usual, Trump lied. He had claimed that the Electoral College vote would allow him to accept the results of an election he lost, but he turned to Twitter to claim Biden lost while he, and only he, won.
The Electoral College vote is a formality. Joe Biden goes into his presidency with something Donald Trump never had: A mandate from the voters.
In a clear-cut election that outgoing president Donald Trump refuses to accept, electors in states cast their ballots across the nation in the next step of bringing a difficult period to a close.
