The Colorado Supreme Court has disqualified former President Trump from appearing on the state’s ballots in 2024 due to his alleged role in inciting the January 6 insurrection and attempting to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election.

The disqualification is based on the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

“A majority of the court holds that President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” the court announced. (Trending: FBI Bribery Probe Caught Joe Biden’s Brother On Tape)

The ruling is stayed until January 4 due to likely appeals, and three justices dissented.

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold stated that she would continue to follow court guidance on the issue.

“The Colorado Supreme Court has ruled that Donald Trump is barred from the Colorado ballot for inciting the January 6 insurrection and attempting to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election. This decision may be appealed,” Griswold wrote.

Colorado’s 10 electoral votes were not believed to be part of former President Donald Trump’s projected path to reelection.

CNN political director David Chalian said, “If you start taking potentially available electoral votes off the board, the map to 270, even though this was not part of his 2020 path, becomes more complicated in that way.”

“He’s not necessarily playing for the 10 electoral votes in Colorado,” she told CNN.

“But it’s the precedent it sets and it’s also just the mindset that it signals to voters, which is, for the first time in history, he is unfit to appear on a ballot for the presidency.”

Senior legal analyst Elie Honig said, “There have been dozens of these challenges filed across the country, and 18 or so of them have either failed, been rejected, or been withdrawn by the plaintiff. So this is really an outlier.”
