Legal Witch-Hunt: Trump-Haters Desperate to Ban Him from 2024 Election
On Wednesday evening (November 8), Laura Ingraham started her show on Fox News with commentary on the news of the Minnesota Supreme Court’s decision in the lawsuit that tried to take Trump off the ballot in 2024. Calling out the attempt of the Democrats to ban Trump from the 2024 presidential election, Ingraham said, “They keep trying to stop Trump. And they keep failing.”
But Democrats and anti-MAGA Republicans are not giving up on trying to stop the one man who can seriously thwart their political agenda from running for the presidency again. The Trump-hating segment of voters in Colorado – four Republicans and two “unaffiliated voters” – filed a lawsuit in September to force Secretary of State Jena Griswold into removing Donald Trump’s name from the 2024 ballots, including the 2024 Republican presidential primary ballot.
The justification offered by these anti-Trump voters is the false narrative of an insurrection on January 6 allegedly incited by him. The case filed against President Trump seeks to ban Trump from participating in the 2024 election or holding any public office based on Section 3 of the 14th Amendment – which disqualifies anyone from public office or service if they engaged in an insurrection or rebellion.
Not trusting that Colorado’s Democrat Secretary of State, Jena Griswold, would adequately fight the petitioners, President Trump made himself part of the litigation to fight the case against him. It is worth mentioning that the Democrats hold a deep role in this effort to cancel President Trump’s constitutional right to run for presidency. As The Denver Post wrote about the case:
It’s spearheaded by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, a liberal watchdog group.
Adding to it, the judge named Sarah Wallace presiding over the case has been revealed as a Democrat donor with multiple donations to Democrat candidates and causes including one as recent as 2022, made to Georgia Democrat Raphael Warnock’s campaign. President Trump’s legal team took note of this political conflict of interest and moved to have Wallace recuse herself over her donations to Democrats. But the judge argued that she didn’t remember having making such donations while cognizant of the mission of the Colorado Turnout Project, whose mission is replacement of Republican representatives with Democrat ones.
The legal scene of this trial in Colorado seems to be heavily tilted with prejudice against President Trump. One Trump supporter, Amy Kremer, who testified in the trial, wrote on Twitter/X:
“They were pushing the narrative that President Trump incited his supporters on J6 with his speech and tweets.”
On Tuesday (November 7), independent journalist Emerald Robinson shared her commentary on how the attorneys in the Colorado 14th Amendment case were caught showing a doctored video with false timestamps in their opening arguments in the courtroom.
Will the desperate unofficial coalition of Democrats and anti-MAGA Republicans be able to ban a former president from running again by accusations of engaging in an insurrection? Legal analyst Aron Solomon, in his op-ed published in Newsweek (November 6), wrote that it seems very unlikely to settle this level of a political case through a single court ruling. He believes that any ruling will be challenged for re-litigation and the case will end up before the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) where conservatives enjoy a 6-3 majority.
Meanwhile, Trump continues to be the leading Republican candidate in the race for 2024. According to The Washington Examiner (November 6), he leads his main Republican challenger, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, by a massive 50 points. Leftist media like The New York Times, despite their heavy prejudice against Trump, have acknowledged that Trump is currently beating Joe Biden in key battleground states by four to ten percentage points.
