Stories appeared early in the evening Tuesday saying that Vice President Pence had told President Trump that he had no power to act when the Senate counts the votes Wednesday. Trump early Wednesday morning remarked that he thought otherwise.
If Vice President @Mike_Pence comes through for us, we will win the Presidency. Many States want to decertify the mistake they made in certifying incorrect & even fraudulent numbers in a process NOT approved by their State Legislatures (which it must be). Mike can send it back!

Trump earlier claimed he and Pence were “in total agreement” that the vice president “has the power to act” and block certification of the presidential election results.
