Vice President Mike Pence, who worked in his capacity as Senate President, “confirmed Biden’s victory at 3:41 a.m. ET.”
Congress certified president-elect Joe Biden’s victory early Thursday morning after a horrific day on Capitol Hill.
President Donald Trump promised an “orderly transition on January 20th.”
Twitter locked Trump’s account for 12 hours. White House Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino had to tweet out Trump’s thoughts.
…fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

Tensions flared on the floor late at night:
Rep. Morgan Griffith (R., Va.) complained that Republicans had been accused of lying and asked that the words be stricken from the record. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) denied the request.
In the background, Rep. Andy Harris (R., Md.) and Rep. Colin Allred (D., Texas) yelled at each other to “sit down,” ‘no you sit down,” and then confronted each other in the aisle, according to a report from a CNN reporter. Other members headed toward the near-fight before the tension was defused.
