Trump Slams Pence, Says VP 'Didn't Have The Courage' To Flip Election

•, by Tyler Durden

"Mike Pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify," Trump tweeted, adding: "USA demands the truth!"

Update (1415ET): Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has officially thrown Trump under the bus, saying on a Wednesday statement that the election wasn't stolen, and that overruling voters would 'damage the republic forever.'

McConnell added that we can't 'keep drifting apart into separate tribes,' implying that Trump supporters should take their medicine and accept the results of the election.

Update (1345ET): As anticipated, Republican lawmakers have begun objecting to the Electoral College vote count, with Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona kicking off a challenge to his home state's tally during Wednesday's joint session - triggering a historic debate in both chambers which will be followed by a vote.

Vice President Mike Pence asked Gosar if his objection was in writing and if he was joined by a Senator - both required for an official objection, to which Gosar identified Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) - wo then added his objection.
