Naturally within minutes Twitter added it’s own message to Trump’s tweet as it has to all of his tweets and that of anyone on the conservative side of the isle claiming that “this claim about election fraud is disputed”. Which is funny because the the 36-page report by Peter Navarro hadn’t been seen or reported on yet. It contained all the evidences that had been found thus far despite the left’s blocking of critical data and evidence.
So what exactly is going to happen come January 6th? All we know so far is thousands of patriots are planning on being in DC for whatever it is that happens and supporting our President and the “Stop The Steal” protest.
Some believe this will be the day that VP Pence will utilize his broad constitutional authority and discretion under the 12th amendment to determine how the joint session shall be conducted.
“… Which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate;–the President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted …”
The Constitution itself does not explicitly define the limitations on the power of the President of the Senate within the Joint Session on January 6. In fact, it uses quite broad language and grants him a great deal of discretion.
The Twelfth Amendment states that the lists of electoral votes are DIRECTED TO the President of the Senate, i.e. the Vice President, big Mike himself.
It then states that the President of the Senate SHALL … OPEN ALL THE CERTIFICATES, and that the votes SHALL THEN BE COUNTED.
While there are several federal statutes under U.S. Code outlining the process for this vote counting and putting forward objections against electoral votes, the Constitution itself clearly designates the President of the Senate as the Presiding Officer, and basically “in charge.”
VP Pence has tremendous Constitutional authority in the proceeding on January 6, if he decides to use it.
The RINOs will provide very little support, but it does not change this fact.
To address the obvious question:
WHAT HAPPENS IF VICE PRESIDENT PENCE ELECTS NOT TO OPEN ONE OR MORE CERTIFICATES OF ELECTORAL VOTES?
It is unknown, but obviously a possibility.
All we know right now is it “will be wild!”
