Democrat Raskin Claims Trump Is Already 'Constitutionally Disqualified from Holding Office'

Democrat Representative Jamie Raskin claimed that former President Donald Trump was “already “constitutionally disqualified from holding office, having participated in insurrection.”

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” Raskin said: “The historians and political scientists we have spoken to have been very clear about this.”

“The surest sign of a successful coup coming is a recently failed coup where the coup plotters and insurrectionists got to diagram the weaknesses in the existing structure,” he added.

“And so if there’s impunity, if they think they can operate with impunity and under the cover of darkness, then they are undoubtedly going to come back again,” he said.

“So I think that everything we know about what’s taken place around the world with coups and what’s taken place historically tells us that there must be consequences, and not just for the hundreds of foot soldiers who are already facing the music and many of whom have already been convicted or pled guilty, but also for people all the way at the top, the masterminds and the ringleaders,” Raskin continued.

He added:

“Constitutionally, the answer to your question is right there in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.”

“After the Civil War, during the Reconstruction, it was the Republican Party which insisted that anyone who has sworn an oath to support the Constitution but who violates that oath by engaging in insurrection or rebellion may never hold federal or state office again. That’s a constitutional disqualification from office,” Raskin said.

“So my colleague Liz Cheney today said that you know, Donald Trump was ethically unqualified, which is absolutely true, but he’s also constitutionally disqualified from holding office, having participated in insurrection.”

“I hope that is a discussion that America is ready to have.”

Jamie Raskin? Is he somebody? Well, anyway, the more these fools persecute President Trump, the more people gravitate towards him. America loves an underdog.

And this pompous a*s thinks Trump is incompetent to hold office? Who anointed him god? What the h**l has he done for our constitutional federal republic? Trump has done more to benefit this country than all of the presidents in my lifetime.

People who have hair transplants with pubic hair should be disqualified from holding public office.

Jamie Ratskin is so mentally deficient he does not know that NO ONE has been charged for Insurrection! So how could Trump commit Insurrection?

He’s just following party propaganda lines. If you can stomach it, watch a few minutes of each cable / local news channel. It’s like a mantra, “insurrection” spewing from every talking head. The Left, and it’s propaganda arm known as the main stream media, are terrified that President Trump might win again. They have to keep the mantra going so their low-info voters know who to hate.

Trump disqualified himself from any major political party’s nomination for any future office when he suggested suspending parts of the Constitution for his personal convenience.

No dearie, you saying someone is guilty because you want them to be is not how it works. Silly boy! The D after your name gives a clue to your foolish bias and lack of reason. Santa is not going to come to naughty boys who lie.

Where is the Director of MisInformation and Truthfulliness when you need he/she/it?? President Trump was not part of the non-existent insurrection, nor did his words foment insurrection any more than the esteemed Representative from California Maxine Waters. She insisted on July 23, 2018 that then President Trump was a puppet of Putin. Fomenting insurrection from within is a Capotal offiense yet nothing has been done.

As for this Ratshit dude. ;ine him up with the rest of the flunkies.
