About a week before then Vice President Mike Pence ratified Joe Biden’s 2020 win, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows sent him a detailed plan written by one of Donald Trump’s attorneys on how to reverse the election results. could make, reports journalist Jonathan Karl in his new book.

In an excerpt from ABC correspondent’s forthcoming book Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show, he describes how on New Year’s Eve last year, the president’s chief of staff tried to pressure Pence in unprecedented political waters.

Meadows allegedly emailed Pence’s top aide a memo, written by Jenna Ellis, who, along with Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, waged an all-out legal war against a handful of states that narrowly went to Biden in November.

The memo suggested that Pence object on Jan. 6 to the certification of ballots from six states where Trump falsely claimed fraud, according to the excerpt released by ABC News.

Ellis reportedly wrote that Pence would then give those six states until January 15 at 7 p.m. Eastern Time to return another set of votes.

“Electoral votes cannot be opened and counted from that state” if they failed to meet the deadline or missed the deadline.

The attorney’s argument was that it would then leave neither Trump nor Biden with a majority vote, forcing the decision of who takes over the White House to each state’s congressional delegations.

Trump would then be reinstated if the 26-state majority of Republicans voted along party lines, Ellis argued, according to Karl.

But that was not the end of the previously unknown press campaign on Pence, just days before violent Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol in search of him.

The next day, January 1, John McEntee — who served as Trump’s director of the White House presidential personnel office — followed up on Meadows’ email with another message, this time to Pence Chief of Staff Marc Short.

Karl called the memo “historically incorrect.” It was titled, “Jefferson used his position as VP to win.”

The reporter said: “His message was clear: Jefferson abused his position and Pence must do the same.”

On January 6, Trump called out Pence’s name several times as he stoked the crowd during his Stop the Steal rally.

He said that Pence has to “do the right thing” and that “Mike Pence will have to do it for us, and if he doesn’t, it will be a sad day for our country.”

In March, Karl Trump asked about an earlier report claiming that Trump had given Pence a vulgar choice on the morning of January 6 prior to certification.

“You can be a patriot or you can be ap***y,” Trump told Pence, according to the New York Times.

Trump told Karl he would “not dispute” the account.

Karl asked, “Really?”

“I wouldn’t dispute it,” Trump is said to have repeated.

During a taped interview with Karl obtained by Axios, Trump can be heard downplaying the chanting of his supporters of “Hang Mike Pence” that day, saying that “people were very angry.”

“Because you heard those chants—that was terrible,” Karl replies. “He could have — well, people were very angry,” Trump said.

“They said hang Mike Pence,” Karl insists.

“Because it’s common sense, Jon. It’s common sense to protect,” Trump said. “How can you—when you know a vote is fraudulent, right?” he says, citing the false claim that the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent.

How can you pass a fraudulent vote to Congress? How can you do that?’

The new audio was released after a federal appeals court gave Trump attorneys November 30 to argue that White House documents dated January 6 should not be handed over to the Democrat-led commission investigating the riots.
