The Democrats in Congress really are looking more and more like desperate people grasping at the chance to stay in power. The idiots carry on with their January 6, 2021 narrative of it being some sort of insurrection, or attack by supporters of President Donald Trump, when all video evidence proves that the invasion of the Capitol Building was no such thing.
So desperate are they to impress that “reality” on the American public, that they are staging what amounts to a show trial using a cherry-picked special committee where the token Republicans involved are all in danger of being ousted in their respective primaries.
Now, word is on the air of the swamp that there is another possibility in the quiver of ammunition against President Trump that the swamp creatures just might try. It involves a very little-known clause in the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution.
Section 3 of the amendment, enacted in 1868 and best known for enshrining the Equal Protection Clause, prevents any government official who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the US from holding office again.
According to The Hill, approximately a dozen Democratic lawmakers have publicly or privately spoken about applying Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to Trump, whom they accuse of inciting the Jan. 6 riot that disrupted the congressional certification of the 2020 election results.
There are those who say that the idea has already been jettisoned, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t those with the hope that it can still be successful.
It’s unclear what mechanism would be used to apply Section 3 to Trump. Some experts say the House and Senate could vote by a simple majority to find the 45th president engaged in insurrection against the government. Others, including Tribe, say the determination would need to be made by a federal court or a neutral fact-finding body.
Some left-wing groups are also exploring the possibility of applying the amendment without going through Congress.
“Just as states are permitted (if not required) to exclude from the presidential ballot a candidate who is not a natural-born citizen, who is underage, or who has previously been elected twice as president, so too states should exclude from the ballot a candidate, such as Mr. Trump, who previously swore to support the Constitution, but then engaged in insurrection,” the group wrote in a letter sent to chief election officials in all 50 states last summer.
Since there is no clear way to apply the clause of the amendment, this all maybe just a pipe dream for those who were disrupted by the Trump presidency.
