A Republican lawyer from Florida has just filed a legal challenge to keep President Donald Trump from being on the 2024 ballot.
The claim is that he was involved in the January 6th “insurrection” at the Capitol. This is nothing more than an attempt to silence millions of American citizens who are angry and frustrated with what they see as government overreach and corruption.
This move sets a dangerous precedent for our democracy, one which could have long-term consequences for all Americans. The lawyer filing this challenge, William J. Shearer, says that Trump’s involvement in the events of January 6th should disqualify him from running for president again in 2024.
He cites speeches made by Trump prior to and during the events as evidence of his direct involvement in inciting insurrection against Congress and law enforcement officers. It should be noted that no charges have been brought against President Trump related to this incident yet, so any legal challenge based on alleged involvement would be premature at best.
Even if these claims were true, it’s still not clear if they would legally prevent him from running for office again unless new laws are passed specifically barring candidates who have participated in similar activities before or after taking office.
This move also shows just how desperate some people are to stop Donald Trump from winning another presidential election—so desperate that they’re willing to use every tool available including legal challenges like this one to try and stop him before he even declares his candidacy again next year.
It’s also possible that this could set off a chain reaction among other anti-Trump lawyers who might file similar suits in different states across America or even take it up with the Supreme Court eventually depending on how far this goes down the line legally speaking.
However, there are many questions left unanswered here about whether or not such a suit can even succeed given all the current circumstances surrounding President Trump and his involvement (or lack thereof) with what happened at the Capitol on January 6th 2021.
For now though we can only speculate as time will tell if these efforts will ultimately bear fruit or fizzle out into nothingness like so many other attempts at stopping someone through legal action before them has done throughout history .
