[See NewsBusters for more.] Former U.S. Capitol Policeman and current CNN law enforcement analyst Michael Fanone appeared on Monday's Don Lemon Tonight to say that former Vice President Mike Pence gets no credit for saying he had no authority to overturn the 2020 presidential election and only did so in an attempt to save his reputation because he knowns "history is going to take a big shit on his head."
After playing some profanity-laced clips of January 6 rioters threatening Pence and other politicians, Lemon asked, "I mean, it’s, these rioters were hell-bent on attacking the former vice president. Now, finally Pence came out and said, you know, Trump was wrong and he could not overturn the election. Is that at least a step in the right direction? Especially when you hear someone like that guy, at least Mike pence, at least he, you know, is saying the right things."
