Democrats have one last desperate attempt to weaponize the judicial system against Donald Trump.
It’s a pivotal battle with Trump’s campaign on the line.
And Donald Trump took George Soros to the Supreme Court in one case that will decide the 2024 election.
The George Soros-funded Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington decided Joe Biden didn’t have to worry about defeating Donald Trump if Democrats could ban Trump’s name from appearing on the ballot.
To that end, CREW filed a lawsuit in deep-blue Colorado hoping an ideological fellow traveler in the judiciary would buy into the republic-ending fringe legal theory that the 14th Amendment allowed election officials to take Trump’s name off the ballot because Trump led an insurrection on January 6.
The key Section 3 of the 14th Amendment reads as follows:
“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.”
Left-wing radical Judge Sarah Wallace ruled that Trump was guilty of insurrection saying Trump “actively primed the anger of his extremist supporters,” and that Trump “acted with the specific intent to incite political violence and direct it at the Capitol.”
“The Court finds that . . . Trump engaged in an insurrection on January 6, 2021 through incitement, and that the First Amendment does not protect Trump’s speech,” Wallace added.
However, Wallace also rejected the challenge to Trump’s ability to appear on the ballot ruling that the text of the 14th Amendment didn’t extend the ban on holding an elected office if you engaged in insurrection to presidents.
CREW appealed to the Colorado State Supreme Court hoping to win a legal precedent allowing Democrat election officials in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to unilaterally remove Trump’s name from the ballot and block Trump from any path to winning 270 Electoral College votes.
The idea that Democrat election officials can just decide to take a candidate who meets all the qualifications to run for office off the ballot is nothing less than the end of American democracy.
But the Trump campaign appealed too.
“But the district court nonetheless made legal and factual findings wholly unsupported in the law, and these errors demand review – especially if the Petitioners in this matter also seek review of the sole dispositive issue upon which President Trump prevailed,” Trump’s appeal read.
Trump’s lawyers are contesting Wallace’s blatantly biased and unconstitutional ruling that Trump led an insurrection and that his speech at the January 6 rally wasn’t protected by the First Amendment.
Even though the Joe Biden Justice Department didn’t pursue Trump on incitement and insurrection, Wallace’s ruling left a dangling thread partisan prosecutors and judges can tug on in other states to either bring more criminal charges or ban Trump’s name from the ballot.
