Mike Pence Backs Away From the Trump Election 'Fraud' Train Wreck

Source: The Daily Beast

...

But that changed late last month. Since Nov. 25, not a single fundraising email from the Trump campaign or its Republican National Committee fundraising account has featured Pence’s name in the “from” field. And this week, that Republican National Committee joint fundraising committee, the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, made another subtle change: a handful of its emails swapped out the official Trump-Pence campaign logo for one featuring just the president’s name.

At first blush, those may seem like minor tweaks to gimmicky portions of Team Trump’s fundraising strategy. A source familiar with the process said the fundraising emails do not go to Vice President Pence's team for clearance and an RNC official said the digital team was merely testing a new logo around the end of the month deadline. Indeed, some of the joint fundraising committee’s emails this week have included the original campaign logo with Pence’s name below Trump’s.

But several high-level sources say that the graphics change, along with Pence’s disappearance from the headers of President Donald Trump’s increasingly frantic and conspiratorial pleas, are not actually coincidental. According to four people with knowledge of the matter, they reflect an effort by the vice president and his team to distance Pence from some of the president’s more outlandish claims about a conspiracy to undermine the election and illegally deny him a second term in office.

“It is an open secret [in Trumpworld] that Vice President Pence absolutely does not feel the same way about the legal effort as President Trump does,” said a senior administration official. “The vice president doesn’t want to go down with this ship…and believes much of the legal work has been unhelpful.”

10. That may very well be our salvation

Pence will not destroy his career by pardoning Trump.

He'll let him fry, rather than ruin his chances.

3. So, Pence is against to all this shit, but is just sitting on the sidelines, saying/doing nothing?

Still a world class wimp.
It's too late Mikey, the Trump taint has stained you for life.
You'll never be able to divorce yourself from this, it's your legacy as Trump's partner in crime.
You put the vice in Vice-President.

Will be remembered as a real gutless wonder. When he leaves office, just like Dan Quayle will never be heard from again.

What a dumbass.

The rotting, stinking carcass of having been a key member of the Trump administration will forever be around Pence's neck.

You are done in politics, buddy. Might as well become a televangelist or something. You've already got the crazy eyes and shitty hair.

16. He doesn't want to go down with this ship

Like there is any other ship for him, or he's gonna get elected to higher office on his own? The Republicans are gonna all rally around him as their fearless leader?

Or more likely what the history books write about him. Unfortunately that seems to be up to the publishers and want Texas school system want them to impose on the rest of the Nation.

Womp, womp!

19. Pence will never be POTUS

Pence will never be POTUS. Pence dreamed since childhood of becoming president, and his whole stick of sycophancy was predicated on succeeding trump. He and mother are going to be very lonely.
