Attorney Sidney Powell advises Vice President Mike Pence to deny Electoral College votes from battleground states.
In an interview with FlashPoint host, Gene Bailey, Powell said “Vice President Pence should simply refuse to accept the illegal electors—the electors from the states in which there was demonstrable, significant fraud,” Powell said. “And if he does that, then it would have to go for President [Donald] Trump.”
There is a possibility Pence could reject the electoral votes during the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress in Washington, D.C., where over 1,000,000 Trump supporters are expected to rally.
When asked about the "visible paths" still available to Trump to win the presidency again, Powell said a second term for the President is "definitely possible."
For the attempt to succeed, both the Democrat-controlled House and the Republican-controlled Senate will be required to agree to dismiss the electoral votes. If neither candidate receives the 270 votes needed for victory, a 'contingent election' could be forced under the 12th Amendment.
With a contingent election, state delegates in the House—one from each state—vote for president, with Republicans having a majority in the House when counted by the number of states.
“I think the possibility is that [Pence] has the actual ability to select the president himself by virtue of disregarding the illegal electors," said Powell.
