The Resistance has taken the first official step toward ending the nightmare that is Trump’s presidency. The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has just advanced a case that could kick Trump’s entire administration out of office.

SCOTUS will begin the early stages of hearing this case, known as Blumenthal vs. U.S., on March 17th. If successful, this case may remove Trump and his appointees from office.
Of course, Supreme Court cases are complicated and require many steps before there is a decision. It’s important to understand each piece of the puzzle.
The basis for the case is what’s known as the “Guarantee Clause” in the Constitution. This clause tasks the government with keeping America safe from foreign invaders.
Lawyers will argue that Russia’s interference with the 2016 election was a foreign invasion. Thus, the entire election must be nullified as it violated our country’s Constitution.
The hearing on March 17th won’t be a full-blown case. The Special Master, appointed by the court, will present evidence on both sides.
Then, the justices must decide if the case meets their standards to receive a full hearing. If four of the eight justices agree that it does, the case will move forward.
We are in uncharted waters for the United States. Because we have never had to challenge an election based off of the Guarantee Clause, the citizens who brought this case to the court must look elsewhere for legal precedent.
In order to fulfill the need for legal precedent, they cited cases from both Austria and Ukraine in which revotes were required after a decision. There’s a sweet irony to the fact that Ukraine could play a role in overturning a Russian puppet government.
