(Patriot Insider) – Fox News analyst and political commentator Juan Williams, a flaming Democrat, published an opinion piece on Monday in which he argues that President Donald Trump should not be allowed to run for president in 2024 due to his alleged connection to the January 6 riots at the Capitol Building.
According to WND, Williams claims the power to pull such a move lies with Attorney General Merrick Garland.
“Garland has the power to rule out another Trump run by citing ‘section 3 of the 14th amendment, which bars anyone from holding office who “engaged in insurrection,” against the U.S.,’ Robert Reich, the former Labor secretary, recently wrote in The Guardian,” Williams stated in his piece that was published on The Hill.
“So, yes, there is a case to be made that Trump committed crimes against America,” he continued.
Williams then went on to cite a piece that was published by the Washington Post which said that President Trump’s “attempted coups cannot be ignored.”
Yes, that’s right, folks. The same people who orchestrated massive voter fraud on a level which had never been seen before are accusing Trump of trying to pull off a coup. That’s rich, isn’t it?
“‘The bottom line is this: Now that Trump is out of office, the DOJ’s view that sitting presidents cannot be indicted no longer shields him. Attempted coups cannot be ignored,’ wrote lawyers Laurence Tribe, Barbara McQuade and Joyce White Vance in a recent column in The Washington Post,” Williams went on to write.
“If Garland’s Justice Department is going to restore respect for the rule of law, no one, not even a former president can be above it,” the Fox News analyst added.
“Yes, Garland has the power to stop Trump from running again. It is time to use it,” Williams concluded.
This isn’t the first piece this month that Williams has penned that is an assault on President Trump. Back on August 9, the political analyst posted another piece up on The Hill in which he said, “Former President Trump and his disciples in the GOP are really putting the ‘con’ in modern conservatism these days.”
Williams took an opportunity to address fundraising reports about Trump, claiming, “Trump’s fundraising haul exceeded the sums raised by his party’s House and Senate campaign groups. As an individual, he was basically on pace with the Republican National Committee.”
“Despite attacks by Williams and others who claim Trump should not run for president in 2024, the former president continues to make moves that indicate he’s planning a comeback,” the WND report said.
“Two recent hires by Trump are driving speculation that he is gearing up to launch another presidential campaign in 2024,” the report continued, adding, “The Des Moines Register reported Thursday that Trump, through his Save America PAC, has hired Iowa natives and Republican Party operatives Eric Branstad and Alex Latcham as consultants.”
It’s not clear at this point what Brandstad and Latcham were hired to do, but both of these individuals have a very deep understanding of state politics.
Taylor Budowich, the communications director for Save America, has confirmed to the Register that both hires are now on the payroll.
At the end of the day, Trump should absolutely be allowed to participate in the 2024 presidential election. First off, he did not cause the January 6 riots. In fact, he condemned violence and told people to remain peaceful during their protest activities. Some folks, who could have been leftist plants, got out of control. He had no control over their personal choices.
Secondly, this election was stolen from him. Tons of evidence exists to prove this is true. As such, he should definitely be allowed to run and have an opportunity, given a fair and free election, to right that wrong.
