12. Weird dude, not deserving of further office. But I suspect he may have played Trump. They've

known for years the role the VP plays in leading congress through electoral count. Think the first time Trump demanded Pence hijack the process was this week? Think Trump didn't ask McConnell for help also? I'm sure, ahead of time, Giuliani and others gamed out various ways to help Trump in case of a loss.

Speculation...but I believe Pence didn't say 'no' until yesterday because he knew that either: 1) Trump would fire him and try to replace with yet another toadie, or 2) Trump would find another more harmful way to stay in office. Goes for McConnell and perhaps others as well.

Could be they let him think there was hope so he wouldn't be even more desperate and unpredictable. I'd like to think that...otherwise there was a plan to hijack the process and all these people decided at the last minute it wouldn't work.
