Former Trump White House attorney Ty Cobb envisions Donald Trump winning his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court against being removed from the 2024 presidential primary ballot in Colorado due to his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Trump ineligible, citing the 14th Amendment.
Cobb believes the key issue is whether Trump is an officer of the United States and predicts a swift 9-0 ruling in Trump’s favor, which he sees as a victory and vindication of Trump’s claims of a political conspiracy. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)
“The real key issue in this case is, is Trump an officer of the United States in the context in which that term is used in Article Three of the 14th Amendment,” Cobb said.
“And in 2010, Chief Justice Roberts explained in free enterprise that people don’t vote for officers of the United States.”
“This vindicates his insistence that this is a political conspiracy to interfere with the election and that he’s the target and people shouldn’t tolerate that in America.”
“It’s doodah. But that’s the way he tries to sell this.”
