Navarro made the remarks on "Justice With Judge Jeanine" on Jan. 2, in the context of a recent call by 11 Republican senators for Congress to appoint an electoral commission to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election results.
Program host Judge Jeanine Pirro asked Navarro about his expectations for the effort, saying, "All this has to happen before January 20. Do you have any hope that this can succeed?"
"Vice President Pence, he has the authority to give that 10-day window to do what needs to get done," Navarro said. "I cannot imagine when he looks at the facts he won't vote the right way on that."
Pirro responded by saying that the "10-day window" could change the date for certification of electoral votes planned for the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress, chaired by Pence, when lawmakers certify the votes cast for the U.S. president by members of the Electoral College.
