This is not a surprise. The Vice President has always known he would take this action. Yes, he acknowledges the fraud and accusations, promises to support a debate (which will end in nothing changing), but will not reject Biden Electors. Mr. Pence, while a nice man, is a product of his growth in politics, and that is with the establishment that has made him successful.

DEVELOPING: As this news broke, videos of people swarming the US Capitol building began to appear on social media.

I’m going to be honest, this may be a rebellion brewing against a government that the average citizen no longer recognizes as having a say in. I have suggested, along with many other military veterans, an amicable divorce over a violent fight is preferable and might be needed. I hope any violence is an isolated incident.
