Legal scholar exposes the constitutional ‘technicality’ that sinks effort to disqualify Trump from ballot

Sep 19, 2023 | Political News

Constitutional law scholar Steven Calabresi no longer believes the Constitution disqualifies Donald Trump from being re-elected to the White House.

Last month, Calabresi, a law professor at Northwestern, endorsed the theory that Trump is constitutionally disqualified from running for president under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. Calabresi argued Trump broke his oath of office when he participated in an “insurrection or rebellion” on Jan. 6, 2021.

But now Calabresi has changed his mind completely.
