Questions being presented:

1    What is a President elect’s or President’s deadline, burden and standard of proof, to prove his qualifications, under Quo Warranto, by U.S. Constitution’s article II § 2 and amendment XX § 3, by statutes, and by ethical duties? 

2    Whether the Presidential qualification of “natural born citizen” over “citizen” re quires sole U.S. allegiance by birth to two U.S. citizens within the U.S.A.’s jurisdic tion and without foreign allegiance, to choose a Commander in Chief with undivided loyalty in time of war and to preserve the Republic from tyranny. 

3    Whether birth to an alien father irreparably negates being a “natural born citizen,” or whether foreign allegiance by birth, adoption, or naturalization, incur foreign allegiance, to constitutionally disqualify a President elect. 

      4    Would a President elect have failed to qualify by neglecting, obstructing, or contesting constitutional duties to challenge, validate, and evaluate evidence of qualifications of identity, age, residency, and natural born citizenship, or by breach ing ethical disclosure duties, by withholding or sealing records by privacy? 

5    Would misprision(s) by Federal officers, bound by oath, fail to qualify a Pres ident Elect, by neglecting to challenge, validate, evaluate, or declare his qualifica tion or failure, after citizens related information challenging those qualifications, via petitions for redress of grievance, or by law suits? 

6    Whether a State withholding original birth records by privacy laws obstructs con stitutional duties of the People to vote, and of officers to challenge, validate, and evaluate qualifications of presidential candidates, and of the President Elect. 

7    Whether, after attaining one’s suffrage, actions showing continued allegiance to a nationality of one’s minority, evidence foreign allegiance sufficient to disqualify a President elect, by having failed to maintain undivided loyalty to the U.S.A.. 

      8    Do candidates for office disqualify themselves if they seek office under a birth name different from a name by adoption, having not provided election officers prima facie evidence of legal name changes, or neglecting to legally change names? 

9        Whether the Constitution grants officers or citizens access to uphold its inviolability and supremacy, including by quo warranto, against misprision and charismatic negligence.

Attorney Leo Donofrio made the following observations about the quo warranto statute:
