When you have elected officials blatantly lying to the American people and using the Constitution as the basis for those lies, we have a real problem.
Sadly, Senator Kaine (D-VA) can now be added to the list of Democrats pushing the idea that Trump is disqualified from office via the 14th Amendment.
Sadly, this is a movement that is growing long before Trump has had due process.
Kaine, like other Democrats, is using allegations made against Trump that have never been proven.
He stated, “In my view, the attack on the Capitol that day was designed for a particular purpose at a particular moment.
“And that was to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power as laid out in the Constitution. So I think there’s a powerful argument to be made,” reported the Washington Examiner.
Kaine goes on to say that this issue will be resolved in the courts, but the fact is that Trump is currently facing no charges regarding sedition or insurrection. He is facing charges under the Espionage Act which could impact this, but again, he must be found guilty before we can even start to talk about the 14th Amendment…
While there’s a “powerful argument to be made” that former Pres. Trump is disqualified from running again under the 14th Amendment, Sen. Tim Kaine predicts that the issue while be "resolved in the courts." https://t.co/gLfhOlFr03 pic.twitter.com/KvpDBqrSAB

This approach by Kaine has gained so much momentum, in fact, we have seen movements in several states to have Trump removed from the ballot citing the 14th Amendment.
This is gaslighting at its finest by Democrats, but it does bring the reality crashing down that Trump could ultimately be declared disqualified from office well after the primary race is over.
If that does happen, and the 14th Amendment does come into play, it would turn the GOP on its head to replace Trump (assuming his massive lead holds and he wins the primary race).
Personally, I am very uneasy voting for someone who could be removed from the race, but I am not here to tell other people how to vote.
My job is to get the facts and possibilities to you so that you can make an informed decision when you pull that handle.
