Vice-President Mike Pence sends letter to Congress

Pence sends letter to Congress denying his authority to change Electoral College vote

MSNBC|15 minutes ago Vice President Mike Pence sends a letter to Congress ahead of joint session stating, “it is my considered judgment that 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.

Vice President Mike Pence said in a letter to Congress on Wednesday that he does not have the “unilateral authority” to throw out certain states’ electoral votes in the 2020 election.

“Given the controversy surrounding this year’s election, some approach this year’s quadrennial tradition with great expectation, and others with dismissive disdain,” Pence said in the letter, which was released minutes before Congress was set to convene to certify the results of the election.
