    14th Amendment, Section 3 - Will we find out if it is a useful tool?

    https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxiv

    Section 3.
    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.
    Bold emphasis mine.

    REP. CORI BUSH ON REPUBLICANS WHO FUELED ATTACK ON CAPITOL: “THAT BLOOD IS ON ALL OF THEIR HANDS”

    Bush’s fellow progressive Squad members — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Jamaal Bowman, and Mondaire Jones — are among the measure’s 32 current backers. The resolution’s other co-sponsors include Reps. Barbara Lee, Marie Newman, Mark Pocan, Bill Pascrell, and Bobby Rush. Justice Democrats, the group that supported several Squad members in their runs for Congress, backed the measure, as did Brand New Congress, Ady Barkan’s Be A Hero, Mijente, and the Center for Popular Democracy.

    "They sell us the president the same way they sell us our clothes and our cars. They sell us every thing from youth to religion the same time they sell us our wars. I want to know who the men in the shadows are. I want to hear somebody asking them why. They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are but theyre never the ones to fight or to die." - Jackson Browne Lives In The Balance

    They can whammy D.J Trump with this. It looks like he was cool with the idea of them all
    jumping poor Mike Pence and turning things into a Clint Eastwood western flic. If Trump
    ends up ducking a conviction again in an impeachment trial, he can be then hit with this.

    I doubt it. The Dems' Achilles Heel is that they always overplay their hand.
