Pence is leaving the country 6 January

Supposedly after Congress certifies the election results.

I find this not only very curious but also very suspicious, as in he's planning something that will not be popular with the majority of voters.

I would not put it past him to do Trump's bidding on that day, and then get the hell out of Dodge.

3. Either way, he'll want to flee

Regardless of how he acts on the 6th, he'll want to get out in a hurry.
It's our duty as Americans to assure he's never welcome back - again, regardless of how he acts.

4. Or else he feels the need to get out of the country to protect himself from crazy Maga people.

The other possibility is that it means nothing.

8. Has anyone in "The Media" commented on this?

On the flip side, he could be leaving that day to avoid having to deal with trump once he has certified the vote for Biden. That's okay, of course.

Your speculation is terrifying.

10. I think he's probably more concerned with his own.

Heíll need to lay low when he signs off on Biden, because at that point heíll be considered a Deep State Swamp Creature by the crazies he helped create and nurture.

Remember, they eat their own.

to and is leaving to avoid dealing with Trump .

13. Every day he's not popular, and he will get out of Dodge.

Both we know. Then he'll return. I don't see anything suspicious. He split for his usual vacation place on Sanibel Island a week after losing the election, when all hell was breaking loose on the right, and especially in the executive branch.

14. If he's out of the country, it's harder for Trump to summon him to scream at him, and

harder for MAGAts to target him.

15. I seem to recall a few weeks back, he and his wife had planned a trip,

but canceled and came back to DC. He's probably finishing up his official duties and getting the hell out while the gettin's good.

The VP merely presides over the counting. He canít impose a decision.

21. Pence leaves leaving no forwarding address after saying Biden is president-elect.

Trump has a stroke and dies and Pelosi is president for 2 weeks.

All of the staffers are going to call in sick that day.

23. Pence will need to postpone that trip.

There will be multiple adjournments of the joint session so each chamber can resolve elector challenges.

Pence's duties under the Electoral Count Act will extend over at least two days.

24. I think Pence is irrelevant...

I keep looking for Jan 6 snags but this link pretty much confirms there won't be any...Trump and his enablers need to read it.

29. No, he's still a heartbeat away from the oval.

He'll be free to vacation on January 21. Skeedaddling right now makes exactly zero sense, unless he has something to hide or a reason to run

25. Between the 6th and the 21st, are there any potential official duties he needs to perform?

Knowing the lawless nature of this administration, they're cooking up a plot that would require Pence to be present and with him being overseas, that may cause a delay.

That being said, I can't think of anything within the purview of the VP that would necessitate his presence during the last 2 weeks of office.

26. Pence hasn't done much of anything but...

..inflate Trump's 'decisive leadership' since Day 1 anyhow. But if Jan 6 goes as it should, Trump will be out of options...I'm thinking at that point, people will quit listening to him, so far as 'plots' to consider. I mean, what's left? Maybe get the Proud Boys and the other right wing crazies to try to take over the country?

30. I agree with you but...

..Trump hasn't given up yet. My previous referral to 'Proud Boys' was somewhat tongue-in-cheek as I had somehow missed his comment about a big protest on Jan 6, including the right-wing nuts.

28. Well there's a global crisis going on. And the Prez is a loon

But I'm wondering if there's any countries without extradition treaties he might be shopping around at.

This seriously sounds like a school teacher taking a vacation week the week before finals.
