    ‘Trump Is Wrong,’ Pence Says of False Claim About Overturning Election
    Former Vice President Mike Pence said in a speech on Friday that he had no right to overturn the 2020 election, as the former president has falsely claimed.

    Speaking to a gathering of conservatives near Orlando, Fla., the former vice president said he understands “the disappointment so many feel about the last election” but repudiated Mr. Trump’s claims that Mr. Pence had the legal authority to reject Electoral College results and alter the outcome last year.

    “President Trump is wrong,” said Mr. Pence, in his remarks before the Federalist Society, a conservative legal organization. “I had no right to overturn the election.”

    The comments marked the strongest rejection of Mr. Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election by his former vice president.
    Is Pence now off the 2024 ticket?

    Or is he a marked man now?

      Trump claimed he did. You're calling the leader of the GOP a liar.

                I've got to believe that Pence had some discussions with other GOP bigwigs before he came out with this little speech. Sounds like the party is running a little flag up the pole.

                  Didn’t you hear? That was “legitimate political discourse.” 😉

                      Well he was dumb to push that, that is why I have said over and over he should have ended things in Nov/Dec. I don't think you can find any poster on here that thought pressing Pence to overturn was a good idea.

                          Congrats , you left wingers are finally actually criticizing something legitimate about Trump in this thread instead of all the bs stuff related to his business, the fake Russia probe stuff, etc etc etc.

                            There were several posters who earnestly believed the election would be overturned in January, I made a bet with one of them but they flaked which is whatever

                                        *Trump* said Pence had the power to overturn the election and should have.

                                        That means you're disagreeing, vehemently, with Trump. You are now *DISLOYAL*.

                                        Whoopsie.

                                            I know it probably goes without saying, but just in case anybody's tempted to give ol' Mike strokes for his Captain Obvious moment here, just remember Pence uttered this dismissive sentence only four months ago about the insurrection against Congress and the Capitol:

                                            “I know the media wants to distract from the Biden Administration’s failed agenda by focusing on one day in January."

                                              The fact that Trump stabbed Pence in the back despite Pence being his most loyal subordinate defines what Trump is.
