Trump Has Undeniably Triggered the Disqualification Clause of the Constitution

There is a law designed to prevent traitors that kill Americans and aid and abet our enemies from taking office. It was designed to keep Confederates out of office after the Civil War, but it can and should be invoked today. Immediately. You can find the Disqualification Clause under the 14th Amendment. It reads:

“No person shall…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.”

This week’s revelations that Trump allowed Russia to offer bounties to Taliban associated militants to kill American and other coalition forces in Afghanistan without concern or consequence has without a doubt triggered the “given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof” condition of the Disqualification Clause.

Nothing can give the enemy more aid or comfort than the ability to kill Americans without consequence.

In addition to Trump inviting and allowing Russia to interfere in our elections, attempting to force a quid pro quo on with the Ukraine as they fight the Russian military, and attempting to elevate the position of Russia in the global economy by trying to allow Putin to attend the G7, Trump has been giving Russia permission to kill our own troops since as early as 2019.

The United States has not seen a greater threat to national security in modern history since the ascendance of the Trump Administration. With massive efforts to close polling locations, the wide distribution of dysfunctional voting machines, voter purging, and assistance from both Russia and China — we cannot afford to hold the fate of the nation in the hands of a fraudulent electoral system.

Trump must be disqualified from running for office.

The Democratic party must immediately take Donald Trump to court for violations of Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. Donald Trump must be held accountable for giving aid and comfort to Russia. And he must be taken off of the ballot in November. We have the opportunity now to stop the complete collapse of the United States of America. And if we don’t, we have given aid and comfort to the enemies ourselves.
