Trump: Pence Has Power to Reject Electors

All eyes are on the Electoral Vote count and on Vice President Mike Pence. There has been growing debate over whether Pence can take action in the joint session of Congress. This mainly concerns how and if he can deal with the 7 states that sent alternate electors who voted for President Trump.

In the Georgia Senate runoff rally on Jan 4, Pence assured rallygoers that he shares the concerns of millions of Americans on election integrity. He said: “I promise you, come this Wednesday, we’ll have our day in Congress, we’ll hear the objections, we’ll hear the evidence.”

On Jan. 5, President Trump posted a tweet saying that “the Vice President has the power to reject fraudulently chosen electors.”
