Trump Calls For Democrat To Recuse Herself From Case

via 11Alive

Former President Donald Trump has demanded that the Democratic Maine secretary of state, Shenna Bellows, recuse herself from a case regarding his eligibility for the state’s primary ballot due to alleged personal bias.

Trump’s lawyers cited Bellows’s past comments on the Jan. 6 riot as evidence of bias, quoting her tweets calling for impeachment and expressing disappointment over Trump’s second impeachment.

Challenges to Trump’s eligibility over 14th Amendment concerns have been filed in multiple states, with Colorado being the first to remove him from the state’s primary ballot, potentially leading to a challenge at the United States Supreme Court.

“The Jan. 6 insurrection was an unlawful attempt to overthrow the results of a free and fair election,” Bellows said in 2021.

“Today 57 Senators including King & Collins found Trump guilty. That’s short of impeachment but nevertheless an indictment. The insurrectionists failed, and democracy prevailed.”

“Not saying not disappointed,” she added.

“He should have been impeached. But history will not treat him or those who voted against impeachment kindly.”

“President Trump requests that the Secretary disqualify herself from this matter because she has already concluded that President Trump engaged in insurrection — a determination that she made well before the submission of evidence or argument in this current matter,” Trump’s attorneys wrote.

“Because the Secretary has exhibited a personal bias in this matter, she should disqualify herself from further proceedings.”
