Democrats may use 14th Amendment to bar Trump from running if impeachment fails

To convict on impeachment, they need 67 votes. But for this, they would only need 60 to break a filibuster. This would need only 60 votes to overcome a filibuster.

According to Fox News:

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer Thursday did not rule out bringing legislation to bar former President Donald Trump from office if he is not convicted at the ongoing Senate impeachment trial.

Democratic senators have discussed in recent weeks that if they cannot secure the 67 votes needed to convict Trump that they might invoke the 14th Amendment of the Constitution to do the same.

Schumer, D-N.Y., was asked about the possibility in a press conference ahead of the impeachment trial proceedings Thursday.

“We’re first going to finish the impeachment trial and then Democrats will get together and discuss where we go next,” Schumer replied.

The 14th Amendment to the Constitution says that Congress can bar people who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the U.S. from holding office. It was originally meant to prevent former Confederates from serving in the government after the Civil War.

  1. These Demoncrats just won’t stop. Like witches constantly stirring the pot containing a mélange of poisonous mushrooms and evil herbs, they stir and plot and connive and keep adding dark evil ingredients if the initial batch doesn’t get them what they want.

    1. The Senate will not convict him, so he will not be “guilty” of “insurrection” therefore he can’t be barred for “insurrection”.

  2. Would you expect anything less from the Grand Cyklops Cuck Schemer? Keep it at ya bunch of traitorous, bottom feeding scum…karma is a bitch.

  3. Damn the corrupt, self serving, bastards in Congress called democrats. These same “POS” refused to go after the crooked Clintons, pelosi and her son, Biden and his communist son and brothers.

    They going to keep pissing people off until we say the bs is over and we clean Congress up. We are fed up with the same scum screwing trump.

    1. The American people did not want nor did we vote for this “scum” to take full control of the House, the Senate and the W House. But when there’s a massive, organized, well-funded effort to rig the elections, the results will be exactly the opposite of what the American people actually voted for.

    2. Um, I’d be more concerned about the American people being screwed by Democrats than a former President.
      If you care more about a single politician, that’s on you, and an indication of mis-placed priorities.

  4. This Schrade is not just aimed at Trump, its a affront to the majority of Americans who voted for him. The Dem establishment is not just at war with DT, they are st war with the American people. The mid terms will show who wins.
