Donald Trump knew he was going to face obstacles in his campaign for 2024, but now even his ability to run is being challenged.

Campaign group MoveOn created a petition in November that calls for government officials to disqualify Trump from the 2024 presidential election on the grounds of violating the Constitution.

Violating the Fourteenth Amendment

Within two weeks of its creation, the petition gained 50,000 signatures, and as of Monday, more than 125,000 people have signed. MoveOn is hoping to garner 200,000 signatures. The petition alleges that Trump’s actions during and after the Capitol riot on January 6th violate the Fourteenth Amendment.

Congress passes bill to ensure no vice president could unilaterally decide an election 2 years after Trump pressured Pence to reverse his loss

  Congress passes bill to ensure no vice president could unilaterally decide an election 2 years after Trump pressured Pence to reverse his loss Trump or a future president's bid to create mischief when Congress formally counts the votes is gonna be a lot harder.After months of debate, lawmakers are expected to pass changes to the nearly 135-year-old Electoral Count Act and much more recent provisions governing presidential transitions. The reforms, written by Sen. Susan Collins, a Maine Republican, and Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Republican, have broad bipartisan support.

The petition references Article Three, which says that any person who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” after taking a congressional oath should be barred from running for office. People who signed the petition were given the option to share their reason for doing so in the comments section of the descriptions page.

Petition signer Jeanue S. said, “A peaceful demonstration is one thing. Destroying the capital and looking for people to harm plus destroying their offices is quite another. They should be prevented from running for any government position.”

Steven B. wrote, “Trump has violated the Constitution. Either we are a nation of laws…that believes in the Constitution…or we are not. Here’s our chance to say who we are.”

The petition itself states that, “Donald Trump and his associates planned, promoted, and paid for a criminal conspiracy that became the January 6 insurrection. We need to fight back even harder to hold Trump accountable for his actions to damage our democracy—actions that continue today and are focused on laying the groundwork for his next coup to place him in the White House in 2024 no matter the will of the voters.”

Repeat Offense

This instance is not the only time the Fourteenth Amendment has been wielded against political officials. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Representative Madison Cawthorn were accused of helping to incite an insurrection, and because of this, they should be banned from office.

A judge rejected the effort to bar Greene from office on the grounds of “insufficient evidence” to support the allegations of her helping to incite an insurrection. Cawthorn left office on her own after losing to Senator Chuck Edwards in the GOP primary.

He took to Truth Social to state his opinion, writing, “So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION?”

He continued, “Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”

Even if Jan. 6 referrals turn into criminal charges – or convictions – Trump will still be able to run in 2024 and serve as president if elected .
The criminal referral of Donald Trump to the Department of Justice by a House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack is largely symbolic – the panel itself has no power to prosecute any individual. Nonetheless, the recommendation that Trump be investigated for four potential crimes – obstructing an official proceeding; conspiracy to defraud the United States; conspiracy to make a false statement; and inciting, assisting or aiding or comforting an insurrection – raises the prospect of an indictment, or even a conviction, of the former president.
