House Dems Implode Over Supreme Court Decision;

•, by Tyler Durden

Update (1400ET): Not satisfied to let the Supreme Court-enforced Democratic process play out, House Democrats are now preparing legislation to try and keep Trump off the ballot.

"Congress will have to try and act," said Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, in a comment to creepy deep state mouthpiece Axios (which swears the border is extra-secure!).

Raskin, a former member of the Jan. 6 select committee, said he is already crafting the bill, telling Axios, "I'm working on it – today."

Raskin pointed to legislation he introduced with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) in 2022 creating a pathway for the Justice Department to sue to keep candidates off the ballot under the 14th Amendment.

"We are going to revise it in light of the Supreme Court's decision," Raskin said. -Axios

"I don't have a lot of hope that Speaker [Mike] Johnson will allow us to bring enforcement legislation to the floor, but we have to try and do it," said Raskin, who said he'll 'beseech' Republicans to join the bill.

Very Democratic, Jamie.

Update (1320ET): Former President Trump has responded to the Supreme Court's ruling keeping him on the ballot in Colorado (and therefore, everywhere else).

According to Trump, the decision was "very well crafted," and "will go a long way toward bringing our country together."
