Marc Elias Plots to Disqualify GOP Members of Congress as ‘Insurrectionists’

'You’re a poison to this country...'

The Left is planning to survive the 2022 midterms by disqualifying as “insurrectionists” any Republican member of Congress who doubted the results of the 2020 election of President Joe Biden, according to Breitbart.

Democrats hope to “use a provision of the post-Civil War 14th Amendment that was crafted to disqualify former Confederates or anyone who ‘shall have engaged in insurrection’ . . .  from holding federal office,” Breitbart reported.

The key player in the effort is liberal lawfare attorney Marc Elias, the notorious architect of the Steele Dossier and Democrats’ “best Election-stealing lawyer,” according to former President Donald Trump.

Elias, who was sanctioned this year by the 5th Circuit for “lack of candor,” may also be among the subjects probed by John Durham‘s special counsel investigation. After a colleague of his, Michael Sussmann, was indicted by Durham last summer, Elias swiftly exited the firm to form his own separate firm.

On Twitter, Elias “predicted” that “before the midterm election, we will have a serious discussion about whether individual Republican House members are disqualified by Section 3 of the 14th Amendment from serving in Congress.”

“We may even see litigation,” the he continued.

Since hiring Fusion GPS in April 2016 to manufacture the Steele Dossier and the Russiagate hoax, Elias has focused on election law, founding Democracy Docket which hopes to provide “shape our elections and democratic institutions for years to come.”

“Marc Elias was the guy who handled the Russia lie,” The Federalist’s Mollie Heminway told Larry Kudlow in October.

“… It was also Marc Elias who did the manipulation of changes to voting laws in states throughout the country,” she added. “It is the same operation.”

Section 3 of the 14th Amendment reads as follows:

“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
