Supreme Court Agrees to Review Trump’s Colorado Ballot Ban in Historic Case

The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on whether former President Trump will be on the Colorado Republican presidential primary ballot.

The justices said they will hear the case on an expedited basis, with arguments on Feb. 8.

“The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted. The case is set for oral argument on Thursday, February 8, 2024,” the decision said. “Petitioner’s brief on the merits, and any amicus curiae briefs in support or in support of neither party, are to be filed on or before Thursday, January 18, 2024.”

The justices issued an administrative stay that orders the Colorado Secretary of State to put the former president’s name on the GOP primary ballot, at least until the case is decided.

The highest court said that the briefs are due by Jan 31.

The Supreme Court said that the respondents’ briefs are to be filed on or before Jan. 31, and the reply brief is to be filed on or before 5 p.m., Feb. 5.

The Colorado Supreme Court decision was the first time in history that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment was used to bar a presidential contender from the ballot.

The state’s highest court concluded that Trump “engaged in insurrection” over his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The historical hearing will consider the meaning of the 14th Amendment, which bars people who “engaged in insurrection” from holding public office.

The amendment was adopted in 1868, following the Civil War.

    What the hell has this country turned into that you can do something like this to an American citizen? Trump has not been charged or convicted of Insurection. Why don’t we take everyones name of the list I am sure we can dream up some kind of charge to prevent them from doing anything. We are turning into a country that if you hate someone that you will do anything and everything to destroy that individual, but you still have a represenative who is still serving that had an affair with a Chinese spy Fang Fang while he was on the intelligence committee. Why don’t we keep him off the ballot for dipping his willie in the chile of a spy?

    They should be removed from the bench, and criminally charged for election interference. It’s obvious as the nose on your face, they’re political activist abusing their authority.

  • Mike from Missouri. says:

    Insurrection???

    If there was going to be an Insurrection, surely there would have been dead bodies strewn around and blood in the streets.

    If Biden gets in, there will be dead bodies and blood splattered everywhere!

    Locked and loaded.

    “agrees to review”….How nice of them. Is there an agency, court, government entity that actually preforms its duties? We are so screwed.
