Donald Trump, a leader in the election integrity movement

In the Western Journal, Jack Davis wrote: “When former President Donald Trump ends his current transition period, he will emerge as a leader in the election integrity movement, according to a top adviser”.

One day after Trump left Washington DC for his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, Jason Miller to Just the News, “Trump has a number of goals over the next couple of years”.

One of them, Miller said, is “winning back the House and the Senate for Republicans in 2022 to make sure that we can stop the Democratic craziness”.

He said, “You’re going to see him [Donald Trump] emerge as the nation’s leader on ballot and voting integrity”.

Miller said questions over the conduct in elections have been asked but never fully answered — something he said isn’t likely to happen in Congress under the leadership of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

He said, “Much of this will never get done in Washington, as you know, because Chuck and Nancy are gonna do their best to continue rigging this, every aspect that they can”.

Terming Trump’s next steps crucial for the democracy of the United States, Jason Miller said: “The voting integrity effort will not begin until after a transition period. This is critical; we have to do this”.

Kelly Ward, who is seeking a second term as chairwoman of Arizona’s Republican Party also told media that she received ca call from Donald Trump hours after he arrived in Florida and they discussed election integrity issues.

“A number of things could be done legislatively, but I think President Trump also looks at Capitol Hill and realizes Democrats are in charge of both the House and the Senate and, quite frankly … we see how the D.C. insiders are just slow to move,” Miller said, according to Town Hall.

“How many years did Republicans sit there on Capitol Hill, even though we had both the House and the Senate, and never did anything about the spying and cheating that we saw from President Obama and his administration?”

Trump has teased some future plans but has said nothing definitive.

“We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner.

Before leaving White House, Donald Trump said: “I will always fight for you. I will be watching and I will be listening. We will be back in some form”.

Can Donald Trump become president in 2024?

For Democrats, it is essential to get Donald Trump impeached as they believe – otherwise Trump will win the 2024 election and become president once again.

While many legal experts believe a private citizen cannot be impeached and convicted, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., says the process is constitutional, claiming, “We have precedent”.

“It is constitutional,” Klobuchar said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

“We have precedent from way back when a secretary of war was tried after he had left office. And, obviously, there was a remedy that would help in the future, which would ban former President Trump from running again”.

Though Kobuchar did not specify the Cabinet member’s name, she was likely referring to U.S. War Secretary William Belknap, who was embroiled in controversy involving kickbacks from political appointees in 1876. Though Belknap resigned before going to trial, senators presumed they could impeach officials who were no longer in office.

When asked about enough Republican support for a Trump conviction in the Senate, Klobuchar said: “My colleagues have not yet committed about what they’re going to do”.

The Democrat admitted “there are many options” that were available for lawmakers, but right now they were most focused on impeachment.

Klobuchar was joined by Republican Sen. Mitt Romney.

“It’s pretty clear that the effort is constitutional,” Romney said Sunday on CNN. “I believe that what is being alleged and what we saw, which is incitement to insurrection, is an impeachable offense. If not, what is?”

The push by Democrats to impeach and convict a president after he has left office has outraged even left-leaning legal experts.

“They are simply wrong as a matter of the constitutional text and meaning,” said famed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.
