(Big League Politics) – Vice President Mike Pence has asked a federal judge to toss a lawsuit that would compel him to reject dubious electors in battleground states rife with electoral fraud.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) filed the lawsuit with other strong conservatives to broaden Pence’s powers so he could be the last line of defense to stop the vote steal. Pence is doing everything in his power to abdicate his responsibility.
“A suit to establish that the Vice President has discretion over the count, filed against the Vice President, is a walking legal contradiction,” a Department of Justice lawyer representing Pence wrote in a filing.
With institutional power intent upon allowing the vote steal to take place, desperate Trump supporters have come to see Pence as their final lifeline. However, Pence’s history shows that he was never fully on board with the MAGA agenda.
Big League Politics has reported on Pence’s assault against the Bill of Rights and Constitution in the past:
Vice President Mike Pence is hopping on the red flag gun confiscation bandwagon.
According to a report from Fox 59, Pence believes Indiana’s red flag law could serve as a model for the rest of the nation to follow.
On Wednesday, the VP held a roundtable discussion over red flag laws with several Indiana law enforcement officials. Pence claims that this discussion is part of a larger conversation the Trump administration is participating in order to prevent mass shootings like the ones in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
“I’m here to listen and to carry back Indiana’s experience into our discussions at the White House,” Pence stated.
Pence praised Indiana’s red flag laws for preventing incidents of gun violence in cases involving mental health issues and suicide.
“While we will always defend the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms, we don’t want people who are a danger to themselves or others to have access to firearms,” Pence declared.
Indiana’s red flag law was passed after an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer was killed in 2004.
In Indianapolis, red flag laws have been invoked more than 700 times, giving police the authority to confiscate firearms from an individual who is suspected to pose a threat to themselves or others.
Although Pence claimed that President Donald Trump is examining red flag laws as a means of preventing mass shootings, he has not indicated any concrete steps towards pursuing a national policy.
