Former Trump administration official Kash Patel predicted Democrats would make multiple efforts to block former President Donald Trump from the ballot using the 14th Amendment in 2024.
“If the prosecution had the evidence, especially this special counsel, to charge President Trump with such a crime, he would have done so,” Patel told Fox Business host Larry Kudlow. “They have not been shy about anything be it in New York, Atlanta, Miami or Washington, D.C.”
An article by William Baude of the University of Chicago and Michael Stokes Paulsen of the University of St. Thomas suggests that Trump may be ineligible to run for president in 2024 due to his efforts to contest the 2020 election.
“This is the next iteration, if you recall, Larry, when we were in the White House together, the DoJ and FBI butted heads, came together and said let’s use 25th amendment and wiretap the deputy attorney general and have the director of FBI go in there to try to take out Donald Trump, a sitting duly elected president, with a deep state actor,” Patel continued, referencing an instance early in Trump’s presidency prior to Trump firing FBI director James Comey.
“I think this is just the next iteration of these folks looking for media headlines and trying to say this is the next get Trump tactic.”
“Look, It’s not going to stop here. This is just the story of the month or the week,” Patel warned. “Once we get into the fall and the winter, they will be using 17 other amendments to try to remove Donald Trump from ballots, to have the state secretaries of state prohibit from his name being even on the ledger. These guys are never going to stop.”
