Democrats are now reportedly looking into new ways to attempt to bar former President Trump from seeking office.

As The Hill reports:

In the year since the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, a handful of Democrats, constitutional scholars and pro-democracy advocates have been quietly exploring how a post-Civil War amendment to the Constitution might be used to disqualify former President Trump from holding office again.

Calls for Congress to take steps to strip Trump of his eligibility, which reached a crescendo in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 riot, have since decreased. But those who remain engaged on the issue say discussions about applying Section 3 of the 14th Amendment have been ongoing.

“If anything, the idea has waxed and waned,” said Laurence Tribe, a constitutional expert at Harvard Law School. “I hear it being raised with considerable frequency these days both by media commentators and by members of Congress and their staffs, some of whom have sought my advice on how to implement Section 3.”

An analysis by The Hill found that around a dozen Democratic lawmakers have spoken either publicly or privately over the last year about how Section 3 of the 14th Amendment might apply to those who engaged in insurrection on Jan. 6.

Constitutional experts are still divided about just how such a measure could be enacted by the Congress. A step which is unlikely given how divided the chambers are and how emotionally and politically fraught of an issue the events of January 6th, 2021 remain.

Are you kidding? The Demonrats have been scheming to bar Trump from office since the day he announced his candidacy. Or do you not know that Killary Clinton conspired with the DNC and their law firm Perkins Coie to LAUNDER MONEY to Fusion GPS who then sent the money to Christopher Steele, a known double agent with MI-6 and the KGB, to manufacture a smear campaign (“dossier”) about Mr. Trump, and cause the FBI to obtain an illegal wire tap on then CITIZEN TRUMP? What part about that don’t you understand???

Where is the investigation into the lawyers and FBI personnel involved in lying to the FISA Court to obtain the ILLEGAL warrants to tap CITIZEN TRUMP’S phone calls knowingly based on the false dossier? When is the DOJ going to investigate that–just that!

And the deplorable Demonrats wonder why a few thousand Trump supporters show up January 6, 2021 believing the election was stolen, when the Demonrats tried every criminal trick in the book, except assassination, to prevent Trump from being elected, and if elected, then to get him impeached and removed from office?

WHEN IN THE HELL IS ANYONE IN THIS COUNTRY GOING TO START REPORTING THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH?!?!?

Dan, I am a Christian man but I want to see justice for our nation against the political criminals for their treasonous acts!

I still pray for them, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to see them behind bars for the rest of their natural lives or hanged for treason!

Yes, there will be a judgement day, and God will be the judge. But, I feel that there should be justice here on earth as well.

We will start getting truth and results when we start hanging the Attorney General for the crimes perpetrated by politicians but aren’t held accountable (e.g Hillary, Comey, Strock, etc)

What do you think would happen if the AG had to prosecute the criminal and punish appropriately if proven guilt or face the charges himself/ herself?

The AG would soon be found to have committed Arkancide.

That is a question Johnarno, people have been asking, since the Communist Democrats started going after President Trump, as soon as he announced he was running for office. The Democrat Party, is nothing more than a title, used by Marxist Communists, to make people think Democrats are for the American people. Well, we have seen what the Democrat Party has given us and how the Media covers for every Anti-American activity, Bide, his administration and the radical left push on America. I think a question Americans should be asking is when will enough be enough. The Second Amendment is the guarantee against what the democrats are pushing. In time Americans will realize enough is enough and take our country back. America is not the solution to the world’s undesirables, unemployables and outcasts and I believe America will stop it very shortly. God Bless America and damn Biden, his administration and ther media.

All these people (politicians and bureaucrats) who have acted as Communists against our nation and our Constitution after taking an oath to defend both, deserve nothing less than life in prison like GITMO or to be hanged in front of the Capital Building.

Although he is not a politician or bureaucrat, Soros MUST BE TURNED OVER TO HUNGARY OFFICIALS and all of Soros’ assets liquidated and the money used to prop up our Social Security Program.

After that, America MUST focus on those who aided ILLEGALS to enter our nation and attach themselves to our welfare roles, SSI and Medicare/ Medicaid programs even though they NEVER paid into the programs.

Let the illegals know – – – YOU HAVE 30 DAYS TO LEAVE OUR COUNTRY. AFTER THIS DATE (INSERT HERE) YOU WILL BE ARRESTED AND IMMEDIATELY DEPORTED. IF YOU HAVE COMMITTED A FELONY IN THE USA, YOU WILL BE DEPORTED TO A COUNTRY AND CONTINENT OF OUR CHOOSING TO DETER ANY CHANCE OF EVER GETTING BACK INTO AMERICA (like the deserts of Syria or Afghanistan). PISSED OFF AMERICANS ARE NOW IN CHARGE SO GET OUT BEFORE WE CATCH YOU!!!
