VP Pence says he can’t block Congress from certifying Electoral College results

Vice President Mike Pence said he doesn’t have unilateral power to block congressional certification of Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election.

“I do not believe that the founders of our country intended to invest the vice president with the unilateral authority to decide which electoral votes should be counted during the joint session of Congress,” Pence said in a letter released Wednesday.

“I took an oath to to support and defend the constitution,” he said.

Pence’s letter rebuffs appeals from President Trump to intercede on his behalf.
