Legal Battles And GOP Lawyer’s Investigation Cast Doubt On Trump’s 2024 White House Bid.

GOP Lawyer and Trump’s 2024 Bid

– A Republican lawyer, Jason Torchinsky, who is currently a partner at the Virginia law firm Holtzman Vogel, and who is affiliated with three of Donald Trump’s GOP rivals is investigating the possibility of disqualifying Trump from running in 2024.

– Torchinsky’s inquiries are rooted in the 14th Amendment, which prohibits public officials who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” from holding office.

– Critics argue this could apply to Trump due to his involvement with the January 6, 2021, Capitol protest.

– While Torchinsky is affiliated with Trump’s rivals, his current research on this matter is on behalf of Jacob Harriman, founder of More Perfect Union.

Challenges to Trump’s Campaign

– Trump’s 2024 campaign is entangled in numerous legal battles, including four criminal prosecutions and multiple civil claims.

– Allegations include trying to overturn the 2020 election illegally, mishandling classified documents post-presidency, and falsifying business records in relation to payments made to Stormy Daniels.

– Amidst these challenges, Trump remains a strong contender, leading in GOP primary polls and showing competitive numbers against President Biden.

14th Amendment’s Modern Implication

– The 14th Amendment, initially created post-Civil War to prevent former Confederates from holding office, has sparked numerous legal battles concerning Trump’s eligibility.

– Multiple groups and individual voters in several states are exploring lawsuits to prevent Trump from appearing on 2024 ballots.

– Legal experts predict the Supreme Court may ultimately decide the issue.

– Challenges based on the 14th Amendment have faced skepticism, with some stating that voters, not courts, should decide electoral outcomes.
