Trump Slams Electoral Vote Act Rewrite, Regulations on VP

'The V.P. was merely a 'human conveyer belt' and could do nothing. It was all a Big Lie....'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Former President Donald Trump criticized the Senate for planning to edit the Electoral Count Act to restrict a state’s electors.

According to Just the News, the rewrite would also clarify the law’s language, ensuring that the vice president would be unable to change election results.

“So the Democrats, RINOS, and almost ALL others said that Mike Pence, or any V.P., had absolutely no right to do anything but send the ‘Votes’ to the Old Broken Crow, Mitch McConnell, even if they were fraudulent, corrupt, or highly irregular,” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social.

“The V.P. was merely a ‘human conveyer belt’ and could do nothing. BUT NOW, the DEMS & RINOS are working to pass a Bill that stops the V.P. from doing what he was not allowed, according to them, to do. It was all a ‘Big Lie.’ Should have sent back to States!”

Trump has been accused of attempting to set up “alternate electors” to vote for him and having then-Vice President Mike Pence not certify the election.

The changes clarify the vice president’s power in the event of a contentious election—the VP who presides over Congress’ certification of the Electoral College ballots only has a “ministerial” role.

Effectively, this means the vice president cannot effect the outcome of any election.

The bipartisan group of senators reforming the Electoral Count Reform Act includes Republican Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Rob Portman (Ohio), Mitt Romney (Utah), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Shelley Moore Capito (W. Va.), Todd Young (Ind.), Ben Sasse (Neb.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.).

The bill’s reform “[a]ffirmatively states that the constitutional role of the Vice President, as the presiding officer of the joint meeting of Congress, is solely ministerial and that he or she does not have any power to solely determine, accept, reject, or otherwise adjudicate disputes over electors,” according to a handout disseminated throughout Congress.
