Polls show Donald Trump leading Joe Biden in a rematch.
But the left has an ace up their sleeve.
And George Soros has one sinister trick to kick Donald Trump off the 2024 ballot.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
The Democrats’ plan to disqualify Donald Trump in the minds of voters with criminal indictments backfired spectacularly.
Trump’s fundraising skyrocketed in the wake of Soros-backed District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s sham indictment.
And much to the frustration of Democrats, the Real Clear Politics polling average shows Trump leading Joe Biden by 1.7 points.
In 2020 the Real Clear Politics polling average never showed Trump holding a lead over Biden.
But that does not mean the Democrats are getting ready to wave the white flag and call it a day.
The left-wing 501(c)(3) group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington — which received one million dollars in funding from Soros-funded groups since 2010 — cooked up a new plan to sue to keep Trump off the ballot in 2024 citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment which bans anyone from holding office who engaged in insurrection against the government.
The Washington Post reports:
“Two nonprofit groups who do not disclose all their donors, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and Free Speech For People, have prepared multipronged legal strategies to challenge Trump across the country under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. They have written letters to state election officials calling on them to block Trump from the ballot, while separately preparing voter lawsuits and state election board complaints.”
Congress ratified the 14th Amendment as part of the Reconstruction Amendments after the Civil War and Section 3 was meant to bar Confederate officers who took up arms against the government from running for and holding elected office.
Section 3 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. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
CREW plans to cite January 6 as the basis for this false claim that Trump engaged in insurrection.
“It is a strategy designed to enforce the Constitution to bar Trump from serving as president,” CREW chief counsel Donald Sherman explained. “We have had two major insurrections in this country. One was the Civil War, which gave rise to Section 3. And one was Jan. 6.”
Critics contend the purpose of this legal Hail Mary is two-fold.
In the extremely unlikely event CREW wins then the left can keep Trump off the ballot.
But even if CREW loses the legal battle will drain critical resources from Trump’s campaign that could be better served to turn out voters.
