Posted on October 12, 2021 (October 12, 2021) Challenging Corruption Share: The Nation national affairs correspondent John Nichols recently published a new article on this Senate Committee report detailing the extent of former president Trump’s seditious coup attempt and the constitutional duty of election officials to abide by Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to bar him from the 2024 ballot. Here are a few excerpts from the new piece: Congress, even in its divided and frequently dysfunctional current form, can and should affirm that Trump has, according to the standards set by the US Constitution, engaged in actions that disqualify him from ever again seeking the presidency. For the members of Congress who might have been reluctant about voting for a resolution affirming Trump’s disqualification, the “Subverting Justice” report provides a clear and compelling argument for congressional action. The same goes for state election officials, who, attorney John Bonifaz and the group Free Speech for People point out, “have the authority and responsibility to determine, as part of the state ballot qualification process, that Mr. Trump is ineligible to appear on a presidential ballot because, ‘having previously taken an oath…to support the Constitution of the United States,’ he then proceeded to ‘engage in insurrection or rebellion against the same.’” Bonifaz tells me, “If he runs in 2024, we will go into court and argue that he has disqualified himself.” Read the full piece here.
