In case you thought the legal offensive against President Trump wasn't sinister enough, left-wing law professors are now arguing that the 14th Amendment bars Trump from running for office again WITHOUT ANY criminal conviction.

In related news, conservative legal elites are now making the argument that Trump is barred from ever holding elected office under the 14th Amendment for engaging in a rebellion against the United States on January 6. Therefore, state election officials should take his name off the ballot (!!!)
As students of the United States Constitution for many decades—one of us as a U.S. Court of Appeals judge, the other as a professor of constitutional law, and both as constitutional advocates, scholars, and practitioners—we long ago came to the conclusion that the Fourteenth Amendment, the amendment ratified in 1868 that represents our nation’s second founding and a new birth of freedom, contains within it a protection against the dissolution of the republic by a treasonous president.
This protection, embodied in the amendment’s often-overlooked Section 3, automatically excludes from future office and position of power in the United States government—and also from any equivalent office and position of power in the sovereign states and their subdivisions—any person who has taken an oath to support and defend our Constitution and thereafter rebels against that sacred charter, either through overt insurrection or by giving aid or comfort to the Constitution’s enemies.
The historically unprecedented federal and state indictments of former President Donald Trump have prompted many to ask whether his conviction pursuant to any or all of these indictments would be either necessary or sufficient to deny him the office of the presidency in 2024. …
Gov. Gavin Newsom is already going there.
So, you see we are really headed over the waterfall this time. We are spiraling now into a major constitutional crisis. The political establishment has clearly decided that Trump can never be elected president again. They are willing to do ANYTHING to stop him.
If it takes torching trust in elections and the legal system to take out Trump, they are willing to do it. Full speed ahead, sir! Damn the consequences!
Note: Obviously, these people are getting desperate due to the collapse of DeSantimonious in the polls. Their preferred choice was a clean DeSanctimonious victory in the primary.
