Excitable Democrats Look To Bar Trump Under 14th Amendment

Republicans should counter by filing legislation to bar Biden under the 25th Amendment, because he seems to be in the depth of dementia

House Democrats introduce legislation to bar Trump from office under 14th Amendment

A group of 40 House Democrats, led by Rep. David Cicilline (R.I.), introduced legislation on Thursday to bar former President Trump from holding future federal office under the 14th Amendment.

Section 3 of the amendment states that no one who previously took an oath to support the Constitution and engaged in “insurrection or rebellion” shall “hold any office, civil or military, under the United States.”

Cicilline said in a release announcing the legislation that Trump “very clearly” engaged in an insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021, with the intention of overturning the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“You don’t get to lead a government you tried to destroy,” he said.

The release states that the bill includes testimony and evidence demonstrating how Trump engaged in the insurrection.

This really has no chance of making it through the Senate and to Biden’s desk, and, if it actually did, it would be a very bad look for a sitting president to sign legislation blocking a potential presidential opponent for being president. Further, does Congress actually have the Constitutional authority to pass something like this, especially when said person has not been convicted of any crime?

Are they thinking that far ahead? Or is it simply Trump Derangement Syndrome from House Democrats?

Not sure why they bother, when he keeps doing things like

    Former President Carter builds houses for the poor. Billionaire ex-president trump sells fake pictures of himself to launch his campaign for United States President.

    Good lord. The rest of the world is laughing at America.

    But here’s the deal. The tRumpetista STILL support tRump but are afraid he’ll lose again bigly in 2024. The tRumpetista are NOT concerned that he’s too unqualified, unaware, unfit, unAmerican, unsafe, unpleasant, undemocratic, unreliable and unstable to be President – only that he may hurt “the lost cause”.
