Retired conservative federal judge J. Michael Luttig and Harvard Law professor emeritus Laurence Tribe penned an article in The Atlantic last month that could have far-reaching implications.

They also argued there is no doubt that the Constitution stops Trump from ever being president again, irrespective of any criminal or impeachment proceedings.

According to Luttig and Tribe, the disqualification clause of the 14th Amendment is triggered as soon as the person betrays their oaths to the Constitution, “The clause was designed to operate directly and immediately upon those who betray their oaths to the Constitution.”

Overturning the Government

The scholars contended that the clause applies to those who seek to overturn the government, “whether by taking up arms to overturn our government or by waging war on our government by attempting to overturn a presidential election through a bloodless coup.”

A Legal Standoff
