Lawsuit filed in Minnesota to boot Trump from the 2024 ballot

Voters in Minnesota have sued to remove Trump from the ballot in the upcoming presidential election arguing he is ineligible due to a provision of the 14th Amendment. Section 3 of the 14th Amendment says, “No person shall … hold any office, civil or military, under the United States … who, having previously taken an oath … as an officer of the United States, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.” The suit in Minnesota, as well as a similar suit brought in Colorado, allege that Trump efforts to incite the January 6th insurrection, his threats to assassinate the Vice President of the United States and congressional leaders, and his efforts to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power constitute grounds for invoking the insurrectionist disqualification clause.
