Trump was privately pressing Pence to reject certain votes at the Jan. 6 proceedings and block certification of the election -- and Trump even suggested to Pence that perhaps he should skip the session altogether, Pence allegedly told Smith's team. But, according to sources, Pence told investigators that he "clearly and repeatedly" emphasized to Trump that rejecting certain votes would violate the Constitution.
"I told him I thought there was no idea more un-American than the idea that any one person could decide what electoral votes to count," Pence allegedly told Smith's team, echoing what he has said before in his book and other public forums. "I made it very plain to him that it was inconsistent with our history and tradition."
Pence insisted that in America, under the Constitution establishing three co-equal branches of government, election disputes are resolved by courts and elected lawmakers, sources said.
But, the sources said, with the pressure on Pence mounting, he concluded on Christmas Eve -- just for a moment -- that he would follow Trump's suggestion and let someone else preside over the proceedings on Jan. 6, writing in his notes that doing otherwise would be "too hurtful to my friend."
"Not feeling like I should attend electoral count," Pence wrote in his notes in late December. "Too many questions, too many doubts, too hurtful to my friend. Therefore I'm not going to participate in certification of election."
Then, sitting across the table from his son, a Marine, while on vacation in Colorado, his son said to him, "Dad, you took the same oath I took" -- it was "an oath to support and defend the Constitution," Pence recalled to Smith's investigators, sources said.
That's when Pence decided he would be at the Capitol on Jan. 6 after all

Mike Pence: My Son Had to Remind Me Not to Let Trump Steal the Election
OFFS! What an assclown.
Sounds like his son is a POS also. Sure is sad to see the USMC cranking out so many low life anti-Trump neocon officers these days.
This just reeks of fiction.
That’s right, it does.
I know but I had to post it anyway.
I’m so glad traitor Mike Pence dropped out of the race!
Judas Pence. When someone does something shameful, we will no longer say, “Your name is Mudd”. We will now say, “Your name is Pence”.
He’s a liar.
All Eastman et al were seeking was a temporary delay.
Pence and his crew turned it fr temporary delay to overthrowing the govt.
Even Pence’s dog nudged him with encouragement to attend the counting.
Mike Pence’s son is 30 something.
“Daddy, please don’t let mean orange man steal the election”
Extreme political schmaltz.
Maybe Mike is trying to lessen the immense anger at him by supporters of President Trump, for not backing his president at that historic moment. He wishes to transfer some of the blame.
It’s strange we haven’t been told this before now.
That describes a pivotal point in the entire melodrama, if this is truly how it all happened. Why hasn’t his son ‘the Marine’ spoken up before, to take a little of that scorching heat off of his Old Man?
The night that Mssr. Pence gave his most damning response about America, was the night that qnualified every word uttered, till his appointed time of demise, AS DUNG!
And the tale gets taller at every telling just like AOC and her “I wuz murdered” style tales.
I watched the last Trump-Pence rally. Pence wasn’t going to let them steal it. I’ve not seen a worse backstabber than Pence.
Obviously Pence went to Epstein Island.
pencetheputz STFU/GFY/KMA you LYING POS !!!
Consider the source. If there was ever a megalomaniac it is Pence. He is a legend in his own mind and the hero of every story he tells.
a reminder as to why we hate pence...
