2020 ELECTION/LEGAL/MIKE PENCE: “If former President Donald Trump committed a ‘technical violation of the Constitution,’ it doesn’t mean he necessarily broke any criminal laws, John Lauro, Trump’s criminal defense attorney, argued Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’…

Pressed by NBC’s Chuck Todd about Trump’s alleged pressure campaign to get former Vice President Mike Pence to reverse the [2020] election, Lauro claimed that Trump and Pence had merely disagreed over whether a vice president could constitutionally take actions that could lead to a presidential election’s being overturned.”
