Donald Trump is going through a lot right now. He is battling with Fani Willis and there is a growing hate between Trump and Jack Smith. Smith warned yesterday that Trump’s ‘daily statements’ is running the risk of tainting the jury pool. Smith is looking for judge Chutkan to address the situation. Trump reacted badly as usual with more unhinged posts on his Truth Social. It was kind of another bad day for Trump with Proud Boy Tarrio getting sentenced to 22 years.
But for all the legal drama circling around Trump, in Georgia, Washington, Florida and elsewhere, the bark of the 14th Amendment is starting to get a bit of bite. It is the Secretaries of State, in each state, who determines who will be on the ballots of their state. In some states, the Secretary of State, for that state are looking whether Trump should be disqualified from appearing on the ballot, on account of the 14th Amendment.
“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. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.“
The growing uproar over this has reached a point where Trump issued a rage post on his Truth Social.
“Almost all legal scholars have voiced opinions that the 14th Amendment has no legal basis or standing relative to the upcoming 2024 Presidential Election.. It is just another ‘trick’ being used by the Radical Left Communists, Marxists, and Fascists, to again steal an Election that their candidate, the WORST, MOST INCOMPETENT, & MOST CORRUPT President in U.S. history, is incapable of winning in a Free and Fair Election.”
Who would these legal scholars be. Would it be Melania. I don’t think they are talking. Maybe Rudy. Maybe not Probably John Eastman. Maybe Trump should have said legal scholar instead of scholars. Maybe illegal scholar would have been more appropriate.
One more headache for Trump in a growing tidal wave of headaches.
