Supreme Court Could Force States to Keep Trump on the 2024 Ballot

Supreme Court Could, Force States to Keep , Trump on the 2024 Ballot.

'Newsweek' reports that the United States Supreme Court could potentially force all 50 states to keep former President Donald Trump on the 2024 presidential ballot.

According to Jeffrey Clark, a former U.S. Department of Justice assistant attorney general, the court could cite Section 5 of the 14th Amendment.

Clark, who is currently facing charges for his alleged involvement in efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, made the claim on One America News Network.

According to Clark, individual states should not be allowed to decide whether Trump violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which he has been accused of in a number of legal actions.

.

In December, Colorado's Supreme Court ordered Trump to be removed from the state's 2024 presidential primary ballot, citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

Days after the Colorado ruling, Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows reached the same conclusion, ordering Trump's name to be removed from the state's 2024 ballot.

.

Clark argues that Trump has not been charged or convicted of insurrection in a criminal court, which would mean that neither Section 5 nor Section 3 are applicable.

.

There's Section 5 of the 14th Amendment, which gives Congress the power to enforce the rest of the 14th Amendment and it looks like the enforcement mechanism that they chose is a federal criminal statute for insurrection which, of course, President Trump has not been charged with let alone convicted of, Jeffrey Clark, Former U.S. Department of Justice assistant attorney general, via 'Newsweek' .

'Newsweek' reports that Clark went on to suggest that the matter will end up being decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

There's only one court that can speak with finality about the meaning of that provision of the Constitution and that's the U.S. Supreme Court, Jeffrey Clark, Former U.S. Department of Justice assistant attorney general, via 'Newsweek'
