Persistent Democrats Pursue Removal of Trump

( – Following the United States Supreme Court ruling that overturned Colorado’s ploy to remove former President Trump from the state’s presidential primary ballot, the Democrats are scrambling to find new ways to prevent him from becoming the Republican nominee. Recent polls have shown that Trump is leading incumbent President Biden in the national race and key battleground states. This has increased panic among the Democratic Party, which seemingly believes that Americans should not have the ability to participate in the democratic process by choosing the candidate that they wish to become president.

Maryland Democratic Representative Jamie Raskin, who has a hard time thinking about anything but Trump, told CNN that Democrats’ pursuit of barring Trump from the ballot was not ending, despite the Supreme Court’s ruling. Raskin named Reps. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, D-Fla., and Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., when telling the outlet their next plan. He said that they intend to reintroduce legislation that would allow Congress to use Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution to “determine that someone who committed insurrection is disqualified.”

Raskin appeared lacking in confidence that their plan would succeed when he noted that “the House has already pronounced upon that,” regarding the impeachment of Trump for his alleged participation in an alleged insurrection. Raskin seemed aware that the legislation would not go anywhere in a Republican-controlled House.

Meanwhile, many other Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans have publicly advocated for his criminal cases to be decided before the election. Former Wyoming Republican Representative Liz Cheney argued in a post on X, formerly Twitter, that Americans deserved to see the evidence in the January 6 case before the election. She also wrote that the Supreme Court should quickly decide on whether Trump was immune from prosecution. Nikki Haley, who dropped out of the Republican primary after Trump trounced her on Super Tuesday, also recently called for the cases to be wrapped up before November.
