Former President Donald Trump has a new scapegoat when it comes to the riot at the U.S. Capitol that took place on Jan. 6, 2021, namely his former Vice President, Mike Pence.
Speaking to reporters on his while while heading for a rally in Iowa, Trump blamed Pence for the violence, The Washington Post reported.
“Had he sent the votes back to the legislatures, they wouldn’t have had a problem with Jan. 6, so in many ways you can blame him for Jan. 6,” Trump said. “Had he sent them back to Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, the states, I believe, number one, you have had a different outcome. But I also believe you wouldn’t have had ‘Jan. 6’ as we call it.”
As Mediaite points out, Pence has repeatedly said he did not have the constitutional authority to decertify the results of the election.
