A conversation between then Vice President Mike Pence and former Vice President Dan Quayle on certifying the electoral vote, recounted in the new book, Peril by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa (via Politico):
QUAYLE: Mike, you have no flexibility on this. None. Zero. Forget it. Put it away.
PENCE: You don’t know the position I’m in.
QUAYLE: I do know the position you’re in. I also know what the law is. You listen to the parliamentarian. That’s all you do. You have no power.
