US President Donald Trump

This morning.

Following extraordinary scenes last night in Washington where Police say four people died as Trump supporters occupied the Capitol…and after being thrown off Twitter and Facebook…

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

Last night: Do It Mike

Oh.

Earlier…

This afternoon.

US President Donald Trump says his vice-president, Mike Pence, has the power to reject the formal confirmation of Joe Biden as the next president.

Via USA Today…

Pence’s constitutional role of presiding over the Senate includes the obligation of declaring during a joint session of Congress Wednesday that President-elect Joe Biden received more Electoral College votes than Trump.

It will be the biggest break with Trump yet for the ever-loyal Pence.

Trump, who continues to arguethat he won the election, has urged Pence to unilaterally reject state-certified results that show that Biden won the Electoral College, 306-232.

Trump has asserted Pence has the option of blocking Congress from formally accepting the results. However, Pence has informed the president that he intends to carry out his constitutional role and that he does not believe the law gives him the authority to do otherwise

Joe Biden

This afternoon

Via Axios:

Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller ordered a Pentagon-wide halt to cooperation with the transition of President-elect Biden, shocking officials across the Defense Department, senior administration officials tell Axios.

 A top Biden official was unaware of the directive. Administration officials left open the possibility cooperation would resume after a holiday pause. The officials were unsure what prompted Miller’s action, or whether President Trump approved.

Miller’s move, which stunned officials throughout the Pentagon, was the biggest eruption yet of animus and mistrust toward the Biden team from the top level of the Trump administration.

A Pentagon official said that the reason was that the staff involved in the transition is “overwhelmed.”

Via Fox News:

House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Liz Cheney and Rep. Ken Buck on Friday are leading a group of 18 lawmakers in sponsoring a resolution in the House that backs efforts by President Trump regarding voter fraud.

The president’s most recent action includes a request to join the Texas lawsuit aiming to block four states’ presidential electors from casting their votes

The one-page resolution includes no “whereas” statements as most resolutions do. It moves directly to the resolution supporting the president and also condemns voter fraud, which Trump and his allies have said was more likely to happen in the presidential election because of significant expansions of mail-in voting.
