Leftists have been scheming for four years to “get rid” of Trump, any way they can.
The Mueller report shut down “Russian collusion” charges trotted out by Clinton cronies.
So Trump is being thrown off the ballot in 2020.
Ever since Donald Trump shocked the world, and especially the left by beating Hillary Clinton, the left and so-called “never Trump Republicans” have joined forces to “get rid” of Trump any way they can.
It doesn’t matter if it’s legal or constitutional, they don’t care how they remove him from office, they just want him gone.
They’ve tried filing lawsuits, done seedy deep state-run investigations and very likely violated federal laws to come up with the now-debunked Steele dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton.
After the Mueller report came out and proved what most rational people already knew — that it was all a hoax perpetrated by Clinton, Obama, and their deep state cronies in the FBI and CIA.
And leftists were heartbroken to hear Democratic leaders say they would likely not try and impeach the President.
So, they’ve decided to take a dual-track approach.
The first is a “compact” between states that have agreed to elect the next president by popular vote.
Currently, 14 states have signed on to this “compact” officially called the “National Popular Vote Interstate Compact” (NPVIC).
The NPVIC is an agreement between states to pool their electoral votes together for the candidate who wins the states’ aggregated popular vote.
Simply put, states in the compact will award their electoral votes based on the national popular vote, regardless of individual state voting results.
Of course there are serious constitutional concerns with this, and most observers agree leftists won’t be able to get this through in enough time to affect the 2020 elections.
So, of course, anti-Trump forces are looking for other ways.
And New Jersey thinks they found it.
The Garden State recently passed legislation keeping any presidential candidate off the ballot unless they’ve released their tax returns.
And, they may soon be joined by Washington State in this arguably unconstitutional effort.
Washington’s state Senate recently passed a bill that would drop President Trump from the state’s 2020 presidential ballot unless he releases his tax returns.
The bill, now in the state House, would require any presidential candidate to release five years of tax returns before appearing on the ballot for either a primary or general election.
Senators voted by a narrow 28-21 margin to approve the bill. The state’s attorney general and solicitor told lawmakers he thinks it’s constitutional, but that analysts expect the law to be challenged in federal court.
“The disclosure requirement you propose is likely Constitutional,” they said, but advised that it “would definitely be challenged in court.”
But not everyone agrees that it is in any way constitutional, including Republican Sen. Hans Zeiger who called the legislation “risky.”
“We’re on really risky ground when we’re trying to place conditions on a federal election,” he told CBS News.
This legislation is also being drafted and considered in other states likely leading to a major court case sometime next year.
It appears the Democrats and never-Trumpers are willing to go to any lengths to beat Trump, except to actually beat him at the ballot box.
