If Trump Wins Here’s What Dems Are Now Threatening To Do

Hmmmm…I was told this was wrong in 2021. What changed?

Numerous House Democrats have hinted that should former President Trump win the 2024 general election they will not certify the election.

Democrat House members to include Reps. James Clyburn (SC), Jamie Raskin (MD), Adam Schiff (CA), Eric Swalwell (CA), and even House Minority Leader Hakeem Jefferies refused to say that they would confirm Trump to office if he won the 2024 election.

It would take much for the Democrats to pull it off either, says Dan McLaughlin from the National Review.

“Only a simple majority is required, and unlike when the House chooses a president under the Twelfth Amendment, they don’t vote by states,” he wrote. “Unlike in 2016 or 2004, when they were in the minority, House Democrats could be playing with live ammunition.”

Things are different in the Senate and there are enough GOP Senators to hold the line.

However, before the House Dems would have a chance the Supreme Court may be able to put an end to all of it.

From the Dailywire:

A potential way around some of this chaos rests at the Supreme Court, which heard oral arguments earlier this month in Trump v. Anderson, a case about whether or not a state, in this case Colorado, can keep Trump off the ballot based on the 14th Amendment. If the high court gives clarity on the issue of Trump eligibility, specifically that he is eligible, then Democrats would not have room to object on this basis.

Some of the biggest pushback in the court has come from Justice Elena Kagan, who was nominated to the bench by former President Obama.

“Why should a single state have the ability to make this determination not only for their own citizens but also for the nation?” she pressed the Colorado legal team. “It sounds awfully national to me … if you weren’t from Colorado, and you were from Wisconsin, or you were from Michigan, and what the Michigan secretary of state did is going to make the difference between whether candidate A is elected over Candidate  B is elected? I mean that seems quite extraordinary.”
