“Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington told former President Donald Trump on Thursday that if he tries to return to the White House or runs for any other political office in 2024, the D.C.-based watchdog will, using the 14th Amendment’s anti-insurrectionist clause, attempt to disqualify him for fomenting last year’s deadly right-wing riot at the U.S. Capitol. ‘Should you seek or secure any future elected or appointed government office including the presidency of the United States,’ CREW president Noah Bookbinder wrote in a letter sent to Trump, ‘we will pursue your disqualification under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment based on your engaging in the insurrection that culminated on January 6, 2021.'” (11/03/22)
