The View co-host Sunny Hostin praised the dissent in the Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling allowing former President Trump to appear on ballots in all 50 states.

While Hostin agreed with the overall ruling, she noted the dissents from Justices Sotomayor, Kagan and Jackson that argued the Court went too far in broadly insulating all alleged insurrectionists from challenges to holding federal office, rather than just answering the narrow question of state ballot access.

Whoopi Goldberg said, “The Supreme Court has just ruled unanimously that Colorado courts cannot keep you know who off the state’s ballot for engaging in insurrection.”

Hostin said, “I actually think it was the right decision to make because it would have, you know, if Colorado had been allowed to do that, we’d have this chaotic sort of process where you have 50 states and some are choosing to put him on the ballot and some are choosing not to put him on the ballot.”

“So that’s why this decision was unanimous in judgment. But if you read the dissent by justices Sotomayor and Kagan and also Jackson, they are saying the Supreme Court went too far here because they answered a question that wasn’t before them,” she continued.

As a Supreme Court-admitted attorney, Hostin said the Court should only answer the questions before it, and expressed disappointment that some justices appeared to rule in a partisan manner in favor of Trump beyond the scope of the case.

“The only question that was before this court was can a state do this? Instead, what they did was they insulated all alleged insurrectionists from future challenges to their holding federal office. And it is a tenet of Supreme Court law,” said Hostin.

Hostin said, “We always learn that in law school.”

Adding, “The Supreme Court should just answer the question before it. And I had far too much, hope that the court would be united in this and not overstep in favor of Donald Trump and I think what we saw was a court where justices that behaved in a partisan matter, and that disappoints me.”

Overall, she acknowledged the need for consistency across state ballots but supported the liberal justices’ position that the ruling went too far.
