Jim Hartman: Can Trump be disqualified under the 14th Amendment?

Some legal scholars contend Donald Trump is ineligible for the presidency under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

They cite the following language: “no person” who has taken an oath to support the U.S. Constitution shall serve in any public office who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the United States “or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

Section 3 was drafted during Reconstruction to prevent Confederates from seizing back power through the ballot box.

Since being ratified after the Civil War in 1868, Section 3 has rarely been invoked. But legal scholars agree the disqualification clause has continuing legal force.

The argument – made fully in a 126-page August law review article authored by two conservative legal academics – concludes that Section 3 can and should be enforced against Trump.

J. Michael Luttig, a former federal appeals court judge appointed by George H.W. Bush, and Laurence Tribe, a liberal Harvard constitutional law professor, agree.

In reality , this last-ditch legal gambit against Trump should fail for legal and political reasons.

It begins with an assertion that Trump’s actions after the 2020 election amounted to an “insurrection” and they were self-evident. While Trump’s behavior was reprehensible that’s far from participating in “insurrection” or “rebellion” under the legal meaning of those terms.

The Jan. 6 rally turned into a riot at the Capitol. This was an obstruction of a federal proceeding – i.e. counting the electoral votes. But many riots in U.S. history have turned violent. In the late-1960s and early -1970s there were frequent bombings of government buildings.

Trump has not been charged with “insurrection” under 18 U.S.C. Section 2383 by special prosecutor Jack Smith. Instead, he’s been charged with a conspiracy to overturn the election, but that’s not a “rebellion.”

An over-broad definition of “insurrection” and “rebellion” under Section 3 could easily be abused by political partisans. Already there have been attempts to disqualify four Republican House members from the ballot who supported Trump’s claims the election was stolen.

If Section 3 is invoked against Trump, he won’t be the last target.

A New Mexico state court ruled in 2022 that Couy Griffin, a county commissioner who joined in storming the Capitol on Jan. 6, was “subject to disqualification under Section 3” because he took “an oath to support the Constitution as a county official.”

Griffin’s case is the first known application of Section 3 since the Civil War.

Proponents argue the disqualification clause is “self-executing,” meaning it automatically applies to someone who meets the criteria. They contend it doesn’t require a criminal conviction in court and can be invoked by state officials to keep Trump off the ballot.

This would violate the due-process protections explicit elsewhere in the Constitution. Removing Trump by fiat would also deny voters the constitutional right to vote for the candidate of their choice.

Knocking Trump off the ballot would validate, in the view of his supporters, his claims the election system is rigged and corrupt.

The secretaries of state in battleground states of Michigan and Arizona, both Democrats, have said they are researching the 14th Amendment issue after legal challenges were filed. The New Hampshire secretary of state, a Republican, said he was “carefully reviewing the legal issues involved.”

The question is being considered in at least nine states, including Colorado, where a lawsuit to disqualify Trump was filed Sept 6.

Its ultimate arbiter could be the conservative Supreme Court which Trump helped shape.

Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Republican secretary of state and a target of Trump’s unrelenting enmity, rejects the move as “merely the newest way of attempting to short-circuit the ballot box.”

The way for opponents to defeat Trump is through the electoral process – first in the primaries and perhaps the general election.

Let the voters decide.

Poll showing Trump up 10 points over Biden for 2024 election criticized
A Washington Post-ABC poll showed results that diverge from most other surveys, and even the pollers made a caveat

A new Washington Post-ABC poll showing Joe Biden trailing his presidential predecessor Donald Trump by 10 percentage points was excoriated by leading political pollster Larry Sabato.

Noting that the pollsters themselves cautioned that their survey was an outlier, Sabato – the director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia – called the decision to release it “ridiculous”.

“Ignore the Washington Post–ABC poll,” Sabato wrote on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. “How could you even publish a poll so absurd on its face? Will be a lingering embarrassment for you.” He added: “Just plain embarrassing – for them.”

The New York Times’ chief political analyst Nate Cohn also criticized the poll that said Trump was ahead of Biden in the 2024 White House race.

Referring to a Post-ABC poll in May that found Trump was up seven percentage points on Biden, which was similarly inconsistent with most polling, Cohn wrote on X: “It’s really really hard to release outlying poll results, so you’ve got to give credit to ABC/Post here, but I do have a fairly major quibble with ABC/Post here: if you release consecutive ‘outlying’ poll results … you don’t get to dismiss your results.

“If it happens twice in a row in the same race, it’s clear that this is the result of some element of your approach, and you either need to decide you’re good with it and defend it or you need to go home.”

The Washington Post acknowledged its survey was not in line with most polling, which generally finds that the Democratic incumbent Biden and the former Republican president Trump would be in a close, competitive race if they faced each other in the 2024 election.

Why New Hampshire is the most likely state where Trump could lose a primary


Former President Donald Trump is a heavy favorite to win the 2024 Republican nomination. He’s getting over 60% in a number of national surveys of the GOP primary and holds the advantage in every early state that’s been polled.

Yet, recent data and history suggest that Trump may be in more trouble than is apparent at first glance in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire. Granite State Republicans, for whom Trump is not their first choice, seem to be searching for an alternative and may not settle on one until late in the campaign.

Take a look at CNN’s most recent survey of the state’s GOP primary conducted by the University of New Hampshire. Trump led the field with 39%, while no one else was anywhere close. Four candidates (businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis) were all between 10% and 13% of the primary vote.
