Democrats are freaked out over the prospect of Donald Trump running for re-election in 2024.
Polls show Trump could defeat Joe Biden.
That’s why George Soros found this sick way to have the Supreme Court ban Trump from running.
A judge in New Mexico removed Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin from office after prosecutors convicted Griffin of entering a restricted area on January 6.
Even though Griffin never entered the Capitol on January 6 the judge declared Griffinan insurrectionist and cited Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to bar Griffin from holding public office for life.
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment reads:
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.
Congress included this section in the 14th Amendment following the Civil War to prevent Democrats from electing former Confederate officers to public office once reconstruction began.
The judge’s ruling gave George Soros-funded groups hope they now had the legal precedent in hand to ban Donald Trump from running for president again in 2024.
President of the Soros-backed Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Noah Bookbinder crowed about the ruling saying it would allow the group to file suit to kick Trump off the ballot in 2024.
“There is a tremendous body of evidence about Donald Trump’s role in the efforts to overturn the election and inciting the attack of Jan. 6,” Bookbinder said in an interview with The New York Times. “It seems like there’s a serious case to be made that it could have application to Donald Trump.”
Free Speech for People – another group looking to use lawfare to ban Trump from running for re-election – also praised the ruling.
“If he does choose to run for office, we stand ready to challenge his eligibility under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment in multiple states,” Free Speech for People attorney Ron Fein said to the Times. “It’s hard to come to any conclusion other than that he is disqualified from public office under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.”
Democrats claim they are the defenders of democracy.
But these so-called “defenders of democracy” want to use bizarre legal theories to prevent voters from making their own decisions on who they want representing.
And now that the left feels emboldened these challenges may go all the way to the Supreme Court.
