Donald Trump is officially running for re-election.
And despite what Democrats say in public, they are deeply worried about Trump’s chances of victory.
Democrats pulled one weird trick to ban Donald Trump from the White House.
Within 24 hours of Donald Trump declaring his intention to seek a second term Rhode Island Democrat David Cicilline – who served as one of the managers in one of Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment hoaxes – sent a letter to his fellow Democrats urging them to take up legislation banning Trump from serving as president using an obscure section of the 14th Amendment.
“This language in our Constitution clearly intended to bar insurrectionists from holding high office in the United States,” Cicilline’s letter read. “Given the proof – demonstrated through the January 6th Committee Hearings, the 2021 impeachment trial, and other reporting – that Donald Trump engaged in insurrection on Jan. 6 with the intention of overturning the lawful 2020 election results, I have drafted legislation that would prevent Donald Trump from holding public office again under the 14th Amendment.”
Members of Congress from the victorious Union states drafted the 14th Amendment following the Civil War.
While nowadays most Americans know the 14th Amendment by Supreme Court rulings incorporating the Constitution to apply to the states, Section 3 of the 14th Amendment bars Confederate officers and soldiers from holding federal office.
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof,” Section 3 of the 14th Amendment reads.
Left-wing legal professions pounced on Section 3 to claim it banned any Republican involved in January 6 from holding elected office.
The top target was always Donald Trump.
Should this legislation ever pass – which is unlikely as it would need 60 votes in the Senate – Donald Trump would obviously sue.
And there is absolutely zero chance the Supreme Court would uphold such a law.
The 14th Amendment was clearly meant to apply to the losing Confederates that took up arms against the United States government.
Donald Trump delivered a speech on January 6.
Trump never advocated for violence, took up arms or engaged in rebellion or insurrection.
And despite Democrats publicly claiming that Trump is unelectable and could never win the presidency again, some Democrats are clearly scared that Trump’s chances are far higher than the so-called “experts” currently think.
