Appearing Saturday on Fox News' "Justice With Judge Jeanine," White House trade advisor Peter Navarro made the false claim that Vice President Mike Pence is capable of postponing Inauguration Day. The comments come as Trump and some Republican lawmakers have made efforts to discredit the election results.

“I would not be surprised to see a special counsel on this," Navarro said about President-elect Joe Biden's confirmation as president. "And Vice President Pence, he has the authority to give that 10-day window to do what needs to get done and I cannot imagine, when he goes through the facts, he won’t vote the right way on that."

Host Jeanine Pirro quickly commented.

"And you know Peter, the interesting thing is that that 10-day window -- it is something that they can change the date. The Jan. 20th cannot be changed, that’s constitutional,” Pirro said. "But this whole certification thing, the days can be changed."

Navarro "corrected" Pirro.

“Well, it can be changed, actually. We can go past that date … we can go past that date, if we need to," Navarro said.

The Constitution states that the outgoing president's term ends on Jan. 20.

“One thing we shouldn’t be strategically gaming is the foundation of this republic," Navarro added.

Republican senators plan on objecting the 2020 presidential election results when the House and the Senate meet on Wednesday. A 10-day audit of election results in disputed states will be requested.

After he appeared on the show and explained his outlook on one of the most important days of the year, some Americans were confused about what his intentions of these claims were.

Another important aspect to note is that Navarro’s position falls under the Hatch Act, which prohibits some civil service employees from expressing political concerns and views.
