Former Attorney General Bill Barr expressed his strong opposition to the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision disqualifying Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 ballot, stating that it would be overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Barr argued that the decision lacked due process and was legally untenable, and he believed that the U.S. Supreme Court would swiftly rule against it if taken up.

He also emphasized the need for due process and adjudication of core issues before depriving someone of the right to hold office. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

“As you know, I strongly oppose Donald Trump for the Republican nomination,” Barr said.

“I think this case is legally wrong and untenable. I think this kind of action of stretching the law and taking hyper-aggressive missions to knock Trump out of the race they are counterproductive.”

“They backfire, as you know. He feeds on grievance just like a fire feeds on oxygen.”

“This will end up as a grievance that helps him.”

“To deprive somebody of the right to hold office requires due process, an adjudication of two core issues. For insurrection, did the public disturbance rise to the level of insurrection, what was the role of the individual? What is it engagement? Did they do something to break your oath of office?”

“Those are complicated facts, and this was denied due process. It was a five-day hearing. There was no jury.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked, “How do you think the U.S. Supreme Court is going to go on this? Do you think they will take it up and rule against it?”

“I think if they take it up, they’re going to slap it down quickly. I hope they do take it up quickly and slap it down,” Barr said.
