In a letter to Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. of New Jersey asks Nancy Pelosi to refuse to seat the 126 Republicans who supported the Texas SCOTUS lawsuit.
Pascrell writes in his letter “stated simply, the men and women who would act to tear the United States Government apart cannot serve as Members of the Congress.”
“These lawsuits seeking to obliterate public confidence in our democratic system by invalidating the clear results of the 2020 presidential election undoubtedly attack the text and the spirit of the Constitution, which each Member swears to support and defend,” he continues. “Today I’m calling on House leaders to refuse to seat any Members trying to overturn the election and make donald trump an unelected dictator.”
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment was written after the Civil War to bar from government any traitors who would seek to destroy the Union.

Pelosi tweeted Friday “The U.S. Supreme Court has rightly dismissed out of hand the sham GOP lawsuit to overturn the will of millions of American voters.”
