Numerous challenges have recently been filed contending that Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment disqualifies former President Trump from appearing on state ballots in the 2024 Presidential election. Section Three generally disqualifies from state and federal office those who have taken an oath to defend the Constitution and then engaged in either “insurrection or rebellion,” or given “aid or comfort” to our enemies, unless a supermajority of Congress has granted amnesty. These challenges contend that Trump engaged in Section Three disqualifying conduct in connection with the events giving rise to January 6, 2021. A former counsel to the Senate for the past two decades addresses the issues presented by these consequential legal proceedings. Any opinions regarding this matter are presenter’s alone and are not necessarily the views of the Senate or any of its Members.
