Trump’s Critics Say the ‘Disqualification Clause Is Clear’ And Now It’s Time To Use It

via CNN

The 2024 election cycle is rife with potential intrigue, including the possibility of disqualifying Donald Trump from the presidency based on the 14th Amendment’s Section 3, which disqualifies public officials who aid or take part in an insurrection against the U.S. Constitution.

Lawsuits have been filed in multiple states to enforce the clause, targeting not only Trump but also members of Congress who participated in his efforts.

The potential impact of this clause on the election and the need for constitutional “antibodies” to address the current political climate is expected to be great. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

“On Jan. 6, 2021, 147 incumbent Republicans voted against certifying Joe Biden’s election victory. Following last year’s midterm election, 126 are still there. None have been held accountable for violating their oaths by participating in Trump’s efforts to thwart the peaceful transfer of power,” the report noted.

“Judges in Minnesota, Michigan and Colorado have decided Trump can appear on their ballots next year, but they didn’t rule on whether to disqualify him from regaining the presidency. Parts of their rulings strain common sense and credulity and should not stand on appeal.”

“Courts have invoked Section 3 only eight times since 1868 and only once in the modern era. In September 2022, a New Mexico judge ordered a county commissioner removed from office for helping mobilize the mob that attacked the Capitol. Now, the Disqualification Clause should apply to traitors and miscreants at all levels of government. All legislators, judges and government executives take and are bound by oaths to support the U.S. Constitution. The Authors anticipated the need for antibodies in the document,” the report added.
