Vice President Mike Pence will preside over a joint session of Congress starting Wednesday at noon.

His role is to open the certificates of the electoral votes from each state and present them to the appointed “tellers” from the House and Senate in alphabetical order. After all electoral votes are counted, Pence will announce the presidential winner.

President Donald Trump has put pressure on Pence to overturn the election results in his favor. Tuesday night, Trump said that he and Pence “are in total agreement that the Vice President has the power to act.”

This statement came after The New York Times reported that Pence told Trump he had no power to block the certification of the election results on Wednesday.

Trump released a statement Tuesday night saying it was “fake news.”

“The New York Times report regarding comments Vice President Pence supposedly made to me today is fake news. He never said that. The Vice President and I are in total agreement that the Vice President has the power to act.”

“If Vice President Mike Pence comes through for us, we will win the Presidency,” Trump said Tuesday night on Twitter.

“He can decertify the results or send them back to the states for change and certification,” Trump said. “He can also decertify the illegal and corrupt results and send them to the House of Representatives for the one vote for one state tabulation.”

At an election eve rally in Georgia Monday night, Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters, “I hope Mike Pence comes through for us, I have to tell you.”

“I hope that our great vice president – our great vice president, comes through for us. He’s a great guy. Of course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him as much,” he continued.

According to the Associated Press, Pence does not have the power under congressional or constitutional rules to govern the count.

However, more than 100 House Republicans and a dozen Senate Republicans, including Sen. Josh Hawley, have said they will support Trump and challenge the electoral votes in battleground states.

Trump is expected to speak in D.C. at 11 a.m. EST at the “Save America March.”

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
