While many on the left are cheering for the downfall of former president Donald Trump, Mark Levin doesn’t believe they stand a fighting chance.
“This indictment, the ruse is obvious,” he tells Sean Hannity on Fox News. “You have to be the dumbest on the face of the Earth to be proposing this.”
Now, a Colorado watchdog group is attempting to block Trump from making it onto the 2024 ballot, citing the 14th Amendment.
Section 3 of the amendment states that “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,” having previously taken an oath to uphold the Constitution, if they have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”
“You know what they meant? They meant, Sean, the Civil War. That’s what they meant. Anyone who engaged in, participated in, gave aid and comfort to the Civil War, they were the ones who were banned from holding public office,” Levin explains.
“They didn’t mean for this to apply after the last Confederate died,” he adds.
Levin notes that if Trump were actually in trouble, he’d be being charged for insurrection or sedition.
According to Levin, he’s not being charged because “two days before January 6, when this so-called insurrection took place, he offered ten thousand military personnel to defend the Capitol building and defend the members of Congress on January 6.”
He was then turned down by the Democrat speaker and the Democrat mayor.
“Well, that’s a hell of a way to run an insurrection, don’t you think?” Levin asks.
“They held a rump trial in the Senate, and they didn’t come close to the supermajority votes they needed to convict Donald Trump,so if anything, under our constitutional system, Donald Trump was adjudicated not guilty of an insurrection and a sedition, by the one body that took it up: the United States Senate.”
