Just moments ago, Vice-President Mike Pence announced that he will not be able to reject the Electoral College vote as requested by President Donald Trump, concluding, “my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not.”
Pence also makes it clear he will not introduce alternative slates of electors, deferring to the parliamentarian on which states have submitted authorized slates approved by a state authority.
The Vice-President’s statement is below. Please share your thoughts in the comment section on this page.
