Vice President Mike Pence, who is set to oversee the certification of the Electoral College vote, is claiming he wants to address election irregularities and fraud during Wednesday’s joint session of Congress despite not having the authority to affect the ultimate outcome, The New York Times reports.

“I know we all have got our doubts about the last election,” Pence told a crowd of supporters of President Donald Trump in Milner, Georgia, Monday. “I want to assure you that I share the concerns of millions of Americans about voting irregularities.
