Mike Pence describes Trump as the most pro-life president in history
General Michel Flynn urged President Donald Trump to use the military to force a “restart” of the election.
The former National Security Adviser said in an interview on Thursday that there was “no way” for the United States to be able to “go forward as a nation” and suggested that Mr. Trump confiscated the voting machines.
Meanwhile, Mike Pence told supporters of Mr. Trump that we will “keep fighting” in an effort to energize supporters for the upcoming Senate elections in Georgia on January 5.
This comes at a time when Joe Biden gave his first interview as an elected president where he defended his son amid an investigation into his tax affairs.
“We have great confidence in our son. I’m not worried about any accusations leveled against him. You used to reach me,” he said while appearing on The Late Show, hosted by Stephen Colbert, alongside his wife, Dr. Jill Biden.
Meanwhile, the hackers targeted the National Nuclear Security Administration and the Energy Ministry, which are protecting the country’s nuclear arsenal.

Trump has suffered several defeats in federal and state courts in recent months in an effort to overturn the results of the November election, alleging vote fraud.

Opinion: Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi want you to think they’re heroes. Really, they should be ashamed
Regardless of what Democratic leaders say publicly, their ordinary members will tell you that it is foolish to hold out for six months for a $ 2 trillion package that Republicans will never bring to the Senate, let alone pass. No matter how loud the Republicans who spent the next few weeks proclaiming victory over the scale of the measure, their demands for the smaller package – or none at all – were equally illogical, as John T.Bennett wrote for Independent voices.
“ Both held out for half a year as American families and companies struggle to put food on the table and pay rent or mortgages to meet their biggest demands: tens of billions to help state and local governments (Democrats) that have depleted cash (of companies and other entities to guard them from lawsuits related to Covid)) Republicans) “.
