(ReliableNews.org) – Congress certified the Electoral College ballots in a joint session on January 6, 2021. Vice President Mike Pence presided over the proceedings in his capacity as the Senate’s President.
The Epoch Times presented an interesting theory regarding a purported flaw in the process of counting Electoral College ballots backed up, in part, by Politico contributor Kyle Cheney.
It's 2:55 a.m. and I just figured out how Pence massaged the rules of the Electoral College counting session to avoid introducing the "rival" slates of Trump electors.
These are the instructions VPs have given out at the start in each of the last 5. Note the difference? pic.twitter.com/l7dnNhon5b

According to The Epoch Times, seven battleground states sent two sets of Electoral College ballots to Washington, one for President Donald Trump and the other for Joe Biden. But, Pence only presented one set of certificates — those cast for Biden, a potential violation of the Electoral College Act.
Curiously, no Senate or House Republican challenged the ballots for any of those states, which could have amounted to a missed opportunity. Perhaps they knew what they were doing, maybe not.
Along those lines, Kyle Cheney himself questioned whether or not Congress could have counted those alternate ballots. The presidential inauguration doesn’t happen until January 20. We will let you know if anything changes.
