Donald Trump is fighting unprecedented forces arrayed against him in his bid to win a second term.
Most of them are in court.
And Donald Trump made one request of Clarence Thomas that will change the 2024 election.
Maine’s Democrat Secretary of State Shenna Bellows and four radical leftist judges on the Colorado State Supreme Court removed Trump’s name from the state ballot deciding on their own that Donald Trump led an insurrection on January 6 and Section 3 of the 14th Amendment banned him from holding office.
Section 3 states:
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Trump was never charged with insurrection by any of the Democrat prosecutors indicting him using every made-up legal theory under the sun.
And Trump never had due process in Maine or Colorado.
Section 5 of the 14th Amendment also leaves enforcement of Section 3 to Congress which passed a law in 1948 requiring a conviction on the charge of insurrection to trigger the Section 3 ban.
The law and the facts are all on Donald Trump’s side which is why his legal team appealed the Colorado decision to the Supreme Court.
Trump’s lawyers told the Court that Democrats were trying to cancel the 2024 election as kicking Trump’s name off the ballot would “threaten to disenfranchise tens of millions of Americans.”
The filing added that allowing Democrats to remove Trump’s name from the ballot by allowing partisans to define for themselves what insurrection means will “promise to unleash chaos and bedlam.”
Republicans in Texas, Florida and Missouri are already exploring removing Joe Biden’s name from the ballot on the grounds that Biden engaged in insurrection by allowing 12 million illegal aliens to enter the country through an open border.
Trump’s lawyers also argued that Trump’s speech on January 6 was constitutionally protected by the First Amendment and thus didn’t fall under any definition of insurrection.
The motion also pointed out that Trump told his supporters to “peacefully and patriotically” protest.
“Nothing that President Trump did in response to the 2020 election or on January 6, 2021, even remotely qualifies as ‘insurrection,’” Trump’s lawyers also argued. “President Trump never participated in or directed any of the illegal conduct that occurred at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. In fact, the opposite is true, as President Trump repeatedly called for peace, patriotism, and law and order.”
Trump’s lawyers also told the Court they need to explicitly address Trump’s ballot eligibility, so this issue doesn’t arise again in the general election.
“A ruling that reverses the Colorado Supreme Court while remaining agnostic on President Trump’s eligibility … will only delay the ballot-disqualification fight,” Trump’s lawyers added.
