#1 Democrats worried about Donald Trump’s resurgence in 2024 are reportedly seeking to disqualify him from mounting a comeback.

...I keep hearing about a 'constitutional crisis', but the only ones I actually see are those created by the Democratic leadership:

*Two likely unconstitutional impeachments against DJT:

The CJSCOTUS is required to be present:

"When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside..."
- Article 1, Sec. 3, Clause 6

CJSCOTUS was not present at either of these impeachments. This is not a mere technicality; this is a serious and likely fatal deficiency.

* It is - to be polite - unlikely that the Constitution allows for the impeachment of private citizens. DJT was Mister Trump when they pulled the second one, they likely had no power to do anything except be extremely cross with him.

* And while we're at it, members of the 1/6 Commission have flatly stated, on the record, that they wish to disqualify DJT from running again. Speaker WickedWitchOfTheWest kept jumping up and down screaming that 'he's impeached forever'. Well, yeah...but he wasn't convicted. Whereas a fella named Alcee Hastings - a Democratic congressman, no less - was impeached while a Federal judge, but was not disqualified from future office.

And if the 1/6 Commission vomits up something that in any way shape or form specifically or generally tries to block DJT from running or taking office again, we run up against Article 1, Section 9:

"No Bill of attainder or Ex post facto law shall be passed. "

Damn pesky Constitution, causing all those crises.

#2 Among those Democrats reportedly seeking to deprive Trump of eligibility are reportedly Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), and Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN).

One thing I've always liked about Trump is that he pisses off all the right people.
