Mike Pence says there was 'no pressure' in calls made to Arizona governor following 2020 election

Former Vice President Mike Pence confirmed that he had made calls to Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (R) following the 2020 election but denied that there had been any pressure on him to change the outcome of the election.

Pence also denied allegations that former President Trump had pushed Pence to call on Ducey to change the election results.

During an interview with CBS, Pence stated, "I think the record reflects that I did check-in, with not only Gov. Ducey, but other governors in states that were going through the legal process of reviewing their election results, but there was no pressure involved."

Pence also refuted allegations that Trump exerted undue influence to try and change the election's outcome.

The former VP stated, "The president and I continue to have a strong difference. I'll always believe that by God's grace, I did my duty under the Constitution that day in presiding over a joint session of Congress in the aftermath of the mayhem and the rioting. But in the days of November and December, this was an orderly process."

This testimony likely puts a dagger into Democrat hopes of getting Trump for trying to interfere in the election. According to Pence's account, Trump did nothing wrong
