Trump news today: Trump prepares to report to jail as constitution bars him from holding public office, academics argue

Charges against Donald Trump – breaking news

donald trump A new panel of experts argues that the 14th Amendment’s provision to bar those who support anti-government insurgency should be barred from running for federal office again.

Harvard professor Lawrence Luttig advanced the idea in a speech on CNN on Sunday state of the nation.

“All federal and state officials responsible for putting candidates for the presidency of the United States on the ballot paper have a constitutional obligation to determine Donald Trump’s eligibility for election,” he said.

Mr Trump and 18 of his allies were indicted last week for allegedly running a criminal enterprise to thwart the 2020 presidential election. He canceled his scheduled press conference, at which he claimed he would release a report that would “exonerate” him in the criminal case. There is currently no concerted effort to take legal action against his ability to appear on the ballot. However, that is likely to change as the country’s primary season approaches.

The former president is also a defendant in four ongoing criminal cases, including his most recent indictment on felony charges related to a criminal plot designed to encourage state officials to alter the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Even if Trump’s attacks on judges “cross the line,” experts believe he will escape punishment

In a normal criminal trial, the accused does not speak to the public at all and does not speak openly about the trial at all. If anyone says anything publicly, it’s the attorney. In a normal criminal trial, the defendant certainly does not appear to be attempting to publicly threaten or influence the attorneys, witnesses, prosecutors, and judges at the center of a case. And if a defendant in a normal criminal proceeding takes the extremely unwise step of making such a threat, they could face a prison sentence for contempt of court or, worse, additional criminal charges.
