The power, Williams claimed, rests with Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Garland has the power to rule out another Trump run by citing ‘section 3 of the 14th amendment, which bars anyone from holding office who “engaged in insurrection,” against the U.S.,’ Robert Reich, the former Labor secretary, recently wrote in The Guardian,” Williams wrote in The Hill.

“So, yes, there is a case to be made that Trump committed crimes against America,” he added.

Williams cited a Washington Post article to argue that Trump’s “attempted coups cannot be ignored.”

“‘The bottom line is this: Now that Trump is out of office, the DOJ’s view that sitting presidents cannot be indicted no longer shields him.
