'In My Heart & Soul': Pence Knows He Did Everything Right On January 6

Written By BlabberBuzz | Friday, 03 December 2021 16:45

Former Vice President Mike Pence declared he “did the right thing” when he certified the results of the 2020 presidential election in January, ignoring then-President Trump’s repeated insisting that he object to the vote.

In an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network that is set to air on Thursday, Pence said he knows he did the right thing in his “heart of hearts” on Jan. 6.

He added that despite some concerns with the vote, his oath of office ordered him to protect and defend the Constitution, which he believes he did by going against Trump’s orders and certifying the results.

“On Jan. 6, I said that I believe there were irregularities about which I was concerned, and I wanted them to have a fair hearing before the Congress, but from the founding of this nation forward, it's been well established that elections are to be governed at the state level and that the only role that Congress has is to open and count the electoral votes that are submitted by states across the country, no more, no less than that,” Pence stated.

“In January of 2017, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. The Bible says in Psalm 15 that he keeps his oath even when it hurts, and on that day, I could relate to that sentiment, but I wanted to keep my oath to the Constitution. ... I know in my heart of hearts that on that day, we did our duty under the Constitution. ... I know I did the right thing,” he added.

Pence, despite intense lobbying from Trump, certified the 2020 presidential election results during a joint session of Congress in the early hours of Jan. 7, after the vote was delayed several hours because a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol in what turned out to be a deadly riot.

After it became clear that Pence would not try to overturn the vote, some protesters outside the Capitol were heard chanting, “Hang Mike Pence.”

Trump had been pushing Pence to reject the Electoral College vote, contending that the election was riddled with fraud.

The former Vice President previously expressed he was “proud” that he and congressional lawmakers reconvened in the Capitol after the building had been cleared of rioters, adding that they “fulfilled our duty under the Constitution.”

He also declared “there is almost no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president.”

However, Pence’s outlook vastly differs from that of Trump, who has bashed Pence for not following his requests to reject the results.
