Vice President Mike Pence spent 24 seconds of his 30 minute speech at TPUSA’s Florida conference discussing the integrity of the 2020 election.
Pence spoke at the Turning Point’s annual Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, and instead of focusing his speech on election integrity like many other speakers, including Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep.-elect Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) and others chose to do, he mostly skipped over it.
The Vice President dedicated a mere 24 seconds of his 30 minute speech to the concept of election integrity, with each instance being couched in an encouragement for Republicans to “hold the line” in the Senate regarding the Georgia special elections on January 5th.
“As our election contest continues, I’ll make you a promise. We’re going to keep fighting until every legal vote is counted,” the Vice President said initially. “We’re going to keep fighting until every illegal vote is thrown out. We’re going to win Georgia, we’re going to save America, and we’ll never stop fighting to make America great again.”
“Stay in the fight in our election, stay in the fight in Georgia’s election, and stay in the fight in every day that follows,” the Vice President said, later on.
Vice President Pence discussed a multitude of other, far less pressing topics in his speech, including the coronavirus pandemic, the military, relations with Israel, abortion, socialism, the economy, and freedom of speech in universities.
National File exclusively reported on the existence of a draft White House memo, now known as the #PenceCard memo, which details how Pence has the sole legal authority as President of the Senate has the power to check and reject Electoral College votes from states that conducted illegitimate, fraudulent elections.
The drafters of this White House memo believe that the federal check to the states’ elections resides with Vice President Mike Pence in his role as President of the Senate. Additionally, Pence has the sole power determine whether to reject impermissible states of electors. However, Pence is legally required to do this on the fourth Wednesday in December, which this year falls on December 23…
The revelation that Pence alone can reject allegedly fraudulent Electoral College certificates shifts the spotlight from President Trump and Congressional leaders significantly by putting President Trump’s electoral destiny squarely on Pence’s shoulders.
Vice President Pence has until midnight on Wednesday to active the #PenceCard, at which point, the swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, Arizona, and Georgia, would have until January 6th to either assign new slates of electors via the state legislatures, or hold new elections and certify them.
President Trump retweeted the #PenceCard memo on Wednesday evening, signalling that he would be in favour of such a move from the Vice President. The memo trended number 1 on Twitter on Wednesday, with supporters of the President also backing the move.
