The Donald Trump campaign fired back at “bogus” efforts to keep him off of the 2024 presidential ballot via the 14th Amendment even as Democrat Senators Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) have continued to push the legal theory.
Kaine, the former Vice Presidential candidate for Hillary Clinton, and Schiff both revived the argument despite an Obama-appointed judge dismissing a lawsuit brought forth by a tax attorney and Democrat donor in Florida.
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment is a rarely cited Civil War-era provision that bars individuals from holding office if they “have engaged in insurrection or rebellion” or “given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”
The lawsuit was promptly dismissed by federal court Judge Robin Rosenberg on Thursday noting that the plaintiffs lacked “standing” to bring the challenge.
That didn’t stop Schiff and Kaine from seemingly coordinating their comments to further the argument, however.
Judge dismisses 14th Amendment lawsuit against Trump, rules plaintiffs lack standing.
