Mike Pence told CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday that Trump’s lawyers said on Jan. 5, 2021, the day before the U.S. Capitol riot: “We want you to reject votes outright.’”
“They were asking me to overturn the election. I had no right to overturn the election,” added Pence, who is challenging front-runner Trump for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
“I don’t know what was in his heart, I don’t know what his intentions were, but I do know what he and his lawyers asked me to do. And it’s what no vice president in American history had ever done before, and frankly what no vice president or any one person in Washington should ever do again.”
