A Colorado judge has ruled that while Donald Trump can’t be disqualified from the 2024 ballot, he did incite an insurrection.

The ruling detailed Trump’s conduct on January 6, 2021, stating that he intended to incite political violence and directed it at the Capitol.

“The Court concludes that Trump acted with the specific intent to incite political violence and direct it at the Capitol with the purpose of disrupting the electoral certification,” Wallace wrote. (Trending: Biden Baffles Thanksgiving Guests With Bizarre Joke)

She also stated that the former President’s “inaction during the violence and his later endorsement of the violence corroborates the evidence that his intent was to incite violence on January 6, 2021 based on his conduct leading up to and on January 6, 2021.”

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

“[T]he Court has found that Trump was aware that his supporters were willing to engage in political violence and that they would respond to his calls for them to do so.”

This is the first ruling to explicitly state that Trump incited the insurrection.

Other judges have also pointed to Trump’s responsibility for the events on that day, with some suggesting that his actions led to the violent events at the Capitol.
