Liberal-run states are moving forward with their electoral interference plans to throw President Donald Trump off the ballot for the 2020 presidential election, as the California state Senate passed legislation late last week that would do just that.
Senate Bill 27 (SB 27) would force any presidential hopeful to release the previous five years of their federal income tax returns to the public. The bill was passed by the California Senate with a 27-10 vote on May 2.
With the Democrats’ Russian collusion conspiracy theory now completely debunked, this is the new scheme liberals are working as they attempt to sabotage Trump’s presidency.
“We believe that President Trump, if he truly doesn’t have anything to hide, should step up and release his tax returns,” said state Sen. Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg), a co-author of the bill.
The small number of Republicans elected to the California Senate objected to SB 27.
“I get that playing the resistance card may be good politics for the majority party, but I would submit that it’s bad policy for Californians,” Sen. Brian Jones (R-Santee) said.
McGuire mentioned that bipartisan globalist attorneys who served in the federal swamp as the chief ethics lawyers for former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are firmly behind his measure.
Similar legislation was vetoed in 2017 after approval by the California legislature by former Gov. Jerry Brown, who refused to release his own tax returns.
Brown released this statement as his rationale following the veto, questioning the constitutionality of the measure with additional concerns that it could create perilous consequences:
Although tax returns are by law confidential, many presidential candidates have voluntarily released them. This bill is a response to President Trump’s refusal to release his returns during the last election. While I recognize the political attractiveness — even the merits — of getting President Trump’s tax returns, I worry about the political perils of individual states seeking to regulate presidential elections in this manner. First, it may not be constitutional. Second, it sets a “slippery slope” precedent. Today we require tax returns, but what would be next? Five years of health records? A certified birth certificate? High school report cards? And will these requirements vary depending on which political party is in power? A qualified candidate’s ability to appear on the ballot is fundamental to our democratic system. For that reason, I hesitate to start down a road that well might lead to an ever escalating set of differing state requirements for presidential candidates.
The new progressive Gov. Gavin Newsom, who was the former Mayor of San Fransisco, has been non-committal on whether or not he will veto the legislation if it is ultimately passed.
“It would be evaluated on its own merits,” Newsom’s spokesman Brian Ferguson said.
McGuire claims that his plan to boot Trump from the ballot would somehow protect democracy, a familiar talking point for Democrats to use as they collude to undermine the lawfully-elected President.
“We can all debate on the floor about the constitutionality of this bill,” McGuire said. “But we also have to look at what makes our democracy strong. The foundation of any successful government is transparency.”
Similar legislation has been proposed in 19 other states, with initiatives in Washington and New Jersey gaining momentum.
WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”
That kind of experience is unmatched.
Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.
Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.
It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.
However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
