Former Vice President Mike Pence is allegedly writing in a forthcoming book about a post-2020 election meeting between former President Trump, campaign lawyers, and outside attorneys which he has called “a new low.”
An excerpt of the book was obtained by Axios. Reportedly within it, Pence is writing about the incidents that took place in November 2020 when campaign lawyers and outside attorneys were discussing the options for challenging the election results.
Pence writes that the entire discussion was a “new low” and that the situation continued to fall further down from there.
According to Pence’s campaign lawyers who had presented a negative report about any potential issues with challenging the election results, and outside attorneys such as former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani disagreed with their claims.
Giuliani reportedly told Trump that his lawyers were lying to him during the meeting. Pence added that following that day, Trump decided to place Giuliani and Sidney Powell “in charge of the legal strategy.” He also added that it was during those meetings that the ground was set up for the events that would lead to Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, when Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
Pence’s autobiography will greatly focus on his time as vice president and other key moments in his life. He is also going to be disclosing information about his relationship with former President Trump breaking down after Pence refused to assist with overturning the 2020 election by not certifying the results.
