Anyone who assisted President Donald Trump’s team in encouraging challenges to the election results in Congress is defined as “participating” in the insurrection, according to the coalition, which cites a Rolling Stone report as its source, and names several incumbent Republican members of Congress whom it would disqualify for doubting the 2020 election results.
Some Democrats have already begun demanding the disqualification of Republicans who merely signed legal briefs supporting election challenges in the courts. As liberal constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who opposes the disqualification effort, noted recently, the U.S. vehemently opposes such efforts in other countries, such as Iran.
Elias and others are suggesting that — rather than defeat Republicans at the polls — Democrats in Congress could disqualify the Republicans for supporting or encouraging the Jan. 6 “insurrection.” Last year, Democratic members called for the disqualification of dozens of Republicans. One, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) demanded the disqualification of the 120 House Republicans — including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy(R-Calif.) — for simply signing a “Friend of the Court brief” (or amicus brief) in support of an election challenge from Texas.
"shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof"
It would be awfully suspicious if the FBI suddenly declares that it found some kind of evidence of planning, six months after declaring that there was no such evidence.
is this why Trump cancelled?

I spent some time just now at twitter following a Marc Elias thread about this effort. Im stunned! The echochamber that hot mess has become truly want their party to be the only party in DC. They want the GOP crushed.
I believe one of the MOST important doctrines in our Constitution is SEPARATION of POWER. This is completely essential to our liberties and rights. A single party in power, because they have seized it, with the rights of people to choose their own representatives denied, isnt what this country is about.
Congress doesnt have a constitutional right to conduct a criminal investigation, which is what they are trying to do. An end run around the DoJ. The executive is charged with the duties the committee is attempting. SCOTUS has shut these kinds of end runs down in the past. Congress cant find anyone guilty of insurrection. Which is what would be required to pull this off.
