Liberals Launch Another Attempt to Disqualify Republicans From Office Over January 6th

Liberals Launch Another Attempt to Disqualify Republicans From Office Over January 6th

“conspired to undermine President Joe Biden’s victory and sow public distrust of the outcome”

Liberals in Wisconsin are targeting three Republicans and are trying to prevent them from running by tying them to the Janury 6th Capitol riot.

A similar attempt was tried with Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina and failed.

Scott Bauer reports at the Associated Press:

Wisconsin Lawsuit Accuses 3 GOP Congressmen of Insurrection

Wisconsin liberals on Thursday filed a federal lawsuit alleging that Republican Sen. Ron Johnson and two other GOP congressmen are insurrectionists in violation of the U.S. Constitution for their words and actions in support of Donald Trump leading up to the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

The lawsuit, alleging a violation of the “Disqualification Clause” of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, says Johnson and U.S. Reps. Tom Tiffany and Scott Fitzgerald conspired to undermine President Joe Biden’s victory and sow public distrust of the outcome.

That clause was enacted after the Civil War to prevent congressmen who had fought on the Confederate side from returning to Congress. It prohibits anyone from holding federal office who has taken an oath to protect the Constitution but has also “engaged in insurrection” against the United States or “given aid or comfort” to its enemies.

It’s unclear what would happen if a court ruled that a sitting member of Congress had violated the amendment. The lawsuit doesn’t seek a specific remedy, but in a statement announcing its filing, the plaintiffs said the men “are no longer qualified” to seek reelection…

Tiffany and Fitzgerald were among 121 House Republicans who voted to object to counting Biden’s presidential electors from Arizona on Jan. 6, 2021. Tiffany and Fitzgerald also were among 138 Republicans who voted to object to Biden’s Pennsylvania electors.

My favorite part is the claim that they “conspired to undermine President Joe Biden’s victory and sow public distrust of the outcome.”

If that was really disqualifying, the entire Democratic party would be prohibited from running for office for the way they treated Trump for four years.

Democrats know they’re going to get pummeled by voters in November, so they’re trying to disqualify Republicans with this nonsense.

Furthermore, in 2017 multiple Democrats objected to electors certifying Trump’s election:

Democrats. It’s different when we do it.

Perhaps in addition to mounting a defence the respondents should ask people to launch a comparable case against all the Democrats that conspired against Trump and spent years making false claims against his legitimacy, and demand that the two cases be joined as they’re making the same legal arguments.

Losing the case would then result in three Republicans unable to stand and pretty much every Democrat in the country.

The Amnesty Act of 1872 nullified the disqualification clause of the 14th amendment. Its bizarre that democrats keep trying to invoke a rule that was explcitly nullified 148 years ago.

Yes. Undermining a fraudulent victory is reprehensible.

My favorite part is the claim that they “conspired to undermine President Joe Biden’s victory and sow public distrust of the outcome.”

If that was really disqualifying, the entire Democratic party would be prohibited from running for office for the way they treated Trump for four years.

The first use of “selected not elected” was in 2000 after SCOTUS decided Bush v. Gore. “Sowing public distrust of the outcome” has been Dem SOP regarding every Republican election victory since then.

Marxists are trying their damnest to not get caught, and need to win or else.. Wisconsin has done the best to reporting their vote fraud.

“conspired to undermine President Joe Biden’s victory and sow public distrust of the outcome”

Oh seriously, go fuck yourselves. “Distrust of the outcome?” Like 4 years of “RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA???”

I swear to God, if some motherfucking prog said this shit to my face, I would bash their head into a bloody stump.

    If Biden gets us sucked into WWIII, I’m going to start carrying a tactical knife with “mean tweets” engraved on it, and using it in appropriate circumstances. I’m so old, I don’t have any reason to care anymore.

A civil audit, an invitation extended, an unarmed woman aborted with plausible cause, a rug summarily pulled, a riot (“disorder”) forced with forward-looking collateral damage. A probable Whitmer-closet.

This is going to work exactly zero times for them.

Only way it accomplishes anything is if they get a leftist judge and he makes a leftist ruling at a specific time when there’s no time for an emergency appeal.

It will be really obvious and the next Congress should immediately impeach any judge who tries that.

As if there’s something wrong and even criminal about going to the capitol to protest a blatantly stolen election.

Leftists. Those people are not liberal.

The infection is raging through the courts. I hope we have the cure in 2022 and 2024.

Duck the Femocrats.

Democrats are so worried about losing because if even a few repubs decide to look into some of the illegal things dems done it could mean some real jail time for them.

These are Democrats and progressives, but they are not liberals and should be labeled as the illiberals they are.

Yet another battle the Cocaine Turtle stays out of. That skunk is about to find himself in a war over who controls the GOP.

Yep. Trump-endorsed. Future endorsements depending on this. Should give us a good measure of how utterly corrupt and duplicitous the GOP truly is.

    Phil,

    Agreed. It may take a few more cycles to get a critical mass of tea party/MAGA/populist right members in the Senate. The establishment/ chamber of commerce wing is going to fight tooth and nail against it. Just as the neocons are doing now v anyone who is at all reluctant about a confrontation with Russia.

Will not hold my breath on counter lawsuits launched by GOPe (e for eunuchs) to discomfort the “insurrectionists” of 2017.

Counter sue. These lawsuits are not filed in good faith which any lawsuit needs to be. And as this is a pattern, civil RICO, ask for treble damages

    Milhouse in reply to rbj1. | March 13, 2022 at 12:15 am

    There is no pattern and no conspiracy. This is the first suit of its kind, and it’s certainly the first by these plaintiffs.

    But it fails to state a claim, and the plaintiffs lack standing.

This will (or should) be immediately dismissed for lack of standing, just like the birther suits against 0bama’s inclusion on various state ballots.

Also, if the plaintiffs are not seeking any remedy, the suit is by definition frivolous.

This is very different from what happened in NC. Over there the board of elections clearly does have jurisdiction over the ballot, so it was within its competence to decide that Cawthorn is ineligible. Cawthorn then clearly had standing to sue the board and challenge that decision, and he won. Here it’s individuals suing candidates, which just makes no sense. There’s no standing, therefore no case.

This is how Democrats try to stay in power
