Thus, Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment prohibits public office holders from holding public office, who have taken an oath to support the U.S. Constitution and then engage in insurrection or rebellion against the United States.

There is abundant evidence that Mr. Donald Trump engaged in an insurrection, by setting out to overturn the result of the 2020 presidential election.  His efforts  trying to alter vote counts by fraud and intimidation, encouraging bogus slates of competing electors, pressuring the vice president to violate the Constitution.

 The Republican Party had an opportunity to clean itself of this alleged fascist ruler by voting to impeach former President Donald Trump.   The Senate Republicans voted 57-43 in the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump not to impeach him thus sending a new message that a new meaning for GOP may be Gosh Odium Party.
