Former Pence chief of staff reveals concerns over 2020 election

Marc Short, former chief of staff to former Vice President Mike Pence, revealed there were significant concerns about the 2020 presidential election.

Short shared the information during a Sunday interview on CBS’ “Meet the Press.”

“I think there were significant concerns about what transpired in Pennsylvania, what transpired in Wisconsin, what transpired in Georgia … when you said you had election officials overruling state officials and saying we’ll keep the ballot open to allow universal access and mail-in balloting,” Short said.

“You’re afforded a chance to challenge, you’re afforded the chance to bring legal challenges, but at the point of the Electoral College meeting on December 14, at that point the process is concluded. That’s why the Constitution wanted the states the ability to certify elections and not the federal government,” he added.

The news comes as Short has said he is cooperating with the House select committee investigating Jan. 6 but argues Pence should not be required to testify.

The interview reveals there were concerns, but also that Pence did his job to end his term as needed, even if Trump and others did not agree.
