Jack Smith Could Bring Insurrection Charges Against Trump After the Latest Court Ruling

Donald Trump is fighting the Democrats, the media, the courts, and Jack Smith in the 2024 election.

It’s unprecedented lawfare.

And the Supreme Court just gave Jack Smith the major win he was waiting for.

Democrat radicals on the Colorado State Supreme Court seized the power to issue a veto over the Republican Party presidential primary.

Four left-wing activists on the court stole the ability to vote for Trump by issuing the most dangerous election ruling in American history by banning Donald Trump from appearing on the state’s primary ballot citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

These four Democrats decided on a whim – with no trial or due process – that Trump led an insurrection on January 6 and Section 3’s prohibition on anyone holding office who committed insurrection or rebellion disqualified Trump from appearing on the ballot.

Section 3 reads:

“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Put aside the fact that Democrats granted themselves the power to decide which Republicans are allowed to run for president, the decision doesn’t even pass constitutional muster.

That’s because the crackpots and zealots who pushed the Section 3 harebrained theory forgot about Section 5 of the 14th Amendment which grants all enforcement powers of the 14th Amendment to Congress.

“The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article,” Section 5 reads.

Section 3, as the Soros-funded groups that filed these challenges to Trump’s ballot eligibility claimed, isn’t self-executing.

And it turned out Congress made it clear what Section 3 means when it passed 18 U.S. Code § 2383 – Rebellion or Insurrection in 1948 which mandates a conviction for insurrection or rebellion to ban someone from holding office.

“Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States,” 18 U.S. Code § 2383 states.

Jack Smith’s mission is to interfere in the election and deny Donald Trump the ability to win the White House.

Democrats are trying to cancel the 2024 election in advance by setting it up so Americans can only vote for Joe Biden.

But to do so Smith will have to indict Donald Trump in Washington, D.C. and count on a friendly Democrat judge to race the trial through to conclusion before Trump takes office on January 20, 2025 at which point Trump could pardon himself or order the Department of Justice to drop the case.
