Jesse Wegman: There is another, less-known solution in our Constitution to protect the country from [Donald] Trump: Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which bars from public office anyone who, "having previously taken an oath" to support the Constitution, "engaged in insurrection or rebellion" or gave "aid or comfort" to America's enemies. ... So could Section 3 really be used to prevent Trump from running for or becoming president again? As a legal matter, it seems beyond doubt. The Capitol attack was an insurrection by any meaningful definition -- a concerted, violent attempt to block Congress from performing its constitutionally mandated job of counting electoral votes.
