Huge Legal Defeat For Democrats Challenging Donald Trump’s Right To Be On 2024 Ballot

via ABC News

Denver judge Sarah B. Wallace has ruled that Donald Trump is eligible to run for president in 2024, despite claims of his involvement in an “insurrection.”

The judge rejected attempts to ban him, stating that the 14th Amendment provision prohibiting insurrectionists from holding office does not apply to presidents.

The ruling was based on the Wallace’s uncertainty regarding Trump’s status as an “officer of the United States” as intended by the 14th Amendment.

“To be clear, part of the Court’s decision is its reluctance to embrace an interpretation which would disqualify a presidential candidate without a clear, unmistakable indication that such is the intent,” Wallace wrote.

“The Court determined that Donald Trump is eligible to be placed on the Colorado ballot in the March Presidential Primary. This decision may be appealed. As Secretary of State, I will always ensure that every voter can make their voice heard in free and fair elections,” Secretary of State Jena Griswold stated.

“We shouldn’t even be here,” pressed Trump’s attorney Scott Gessler.

“There are millions of people in Colorado and across this country who are inspired by President Trump. … Who are the petitioners to prevent those people from not being able to vote?”

The decision may be appealed. The judge also refuted Trump’s attempt to discredit the findings of the congressional committee that examined the Jan. 6 attack.

“My incredible partners at @dhillonlaw defeated the challenge to President Trump being on the ballot in yet another state, Colorado!!” attorney Harmeet Dhillon posted.

“I was on the phone moments ago with partner David Warrington when the news came through. Kudos to our team, local counsel and President Trump!!!”

“Trump cultivated a culture that embraced political violence through his consistent endorsement of the same,” she added.

“He responded to growing threats of violence and intimidation in the lead-up to the certification by amplifying his false claims of election fraud. He convened a large crowd on the date of the certification in Washington, D.C., focused them on the certification process, told them their country was being stolen from them, called for strength and action, and directed them to the Capitol where the certification was about to take place.”

The ruling was based on the judge’s reluctance to disqualify a presidential candidate without clear intent.
