(RoyalPatriot.com )- Juan Williams, the far-left commentator who was long a staple on Fox News, but has since become an occasional columnist, claimed in a commentary piece this week that former President Donald Trump deserved to be banned from running in the 2024 presidential election.
Because he was allegedly involved with the so-called January 6 “insurrection.”
Never mind the fact that the evidence shows that the former president called on protesters to remain peaceful throughout the January 6 protests, and even called on violent protesters to stop what they were doing and go home as soon as he saw it happening.
Writing in The Hill, Williams laid down his plan to get Trump banned from running for office again. He said that Attorney General Merrick Garland has the power to stop Trump from running for office again through Section 4 of the 14th Amendment, which stops anybody from running for election if they have “engaged in insurrection.”
The problem? Former President Donald Trump has never engaged in an insurrection.
And if he really wants to go there, what about the Democrats? Vice President Kamala Harris encouraged violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters in 2020 when she shared a fundraising effort used to bail criminals who caused serious damage and engaged in violence in 2020.
If Trump telling protesters to stay peaceful is “engaging in insurrection,” then Kamala Harris is in serious trouble here.
Williams claimed that Trump has “committed crimes against America” and that now that he is out of office, the Department of Justice’s view that sitting presidents cannot be indicted doesn’t protect him anymore. He claimed that “attempted coups cannot be ignored,” but gave no evidence of the former president trying to engage in a coup.
He argued that it is “time” for Garland to use his power to stop Trump from running again.
Just look how terrified Democrats like Williams are of Donald Trump. Even now.
