Judge Delivers Devastating News To Donald Trump

Since none of the lawsuits defaming and attempting to neutralize presidential candidate former President Donald Trump have gained ground, another tactic is spreading through blue states – keeping Trump off the ballot for the 2024 presidential Republican nomination.

In Colorado, a lawsuit against Trump has been brought forth by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, who allege that Trump’s inclusion on the Colorado ballot would contravene a provision of the 14th Amendment. This provision prohibits individuals who have “engaged in insurrection” against the Constitution from holding office.

Again, the unproven word “insurrection” in regard to Trump on Jan 6.

Trump immediately bid to dismiss the lawsuit, using Colorado’s own law.

Trump’s legal team had contended that a Colorado law safeguarding individuals from legal actions related to their exercise of free speech should shield him from the lawsuit.

Although Trump’s team has a valid stance, colorado District Judge Sarah Wallace determined that this law did not apply to the present situation.

Trump’s bid to dismiss a lawsuit aimed at preventing his name from appearing on the Colorado state ballot has been denied by a Colorado District Judge, Sarah Wallace. The judge ruled that Trump’s arguments invoking free-speech protections were not applicable in this case, Christian Action reports.

Additionally, it has been stated that the law clashed with a state requirement mandating the speedy resolution of questions regarding Trump’s eligibility ahead of the January 5th deadline for certifying presidential candidates for the Colorado primary.

Trump’s attorney, Geoffrey Blue, highlighted the semantic distinction between the presidential oath to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution and the 14th Amendment’s reference to those who have sworn oaths to “support” the Constitution in a filing on October 6.

The trial to determine Trump’s eligibility for inclusion on the Colorado ballot is scheduled to commence on October 30.

Donald K. Sherman, the anti-Trump group’s chief counsel, praised Judge Wallace’s decision, characterizing it as a “well-reasoned and very detailed order” in a statement released on Thursday. Meanwhile,

Geoffrey Blue, a Denver-based attorney representing Trump, has yet to respond to the outlet’s requests for comment.

Despite the fact that Trump is far and away the leading contender for the Republican nonimation, and is edging Joe Biden out in polls of all Americans, the effort by Democrats to keep him off the ballot continues.

Just as other lawsuits have, the Colorado lawsuit comes down to whether the word “insurrection” can even be applied to Trump in regard to Jan 6, and previously attempts to do that have failed. Trump has repeatedly stated his Jan 6 actions and even the congressional Jan 6 committee could not find a reason to charge him.

The 14th Amendment to the Constitution states those who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” or have “given aid or comfort” to insurrectionists may not hold public office.

Trump’s answer to the charges repeats the bottom line….his free speech rights given by the Constitution’s First Amendment, which provides that ‘Congress make no law…abridging free speech.”

Trump’s public statements that day have never been shown in court or otherwise to be of any treasonous nature, only encouraging the peaceful protest of gatherers about their views on the 2020 election.

Meanwhile, the Democrat’s efforts to keep the popular candidate off the upcoming ballot is reflected in lawsuits in Georgia, Washington, D.C., and New York.

In Georgia, Trump, along with 18 other defendants, are charged with “attempting to overturn the 2020 election” in their attempts to shine light on the irregularities in that election which caused the tide to turn suddenly. The defendants have all been charged under a Georgia racketerring law, and have pleaded not guilty.

It seems in Georgia a candidate is not allowed to question questionable election results.

Only two of those defendenta have had trial date set, for October 23. The remaining seventeen, including former President Trump, have not had a trial date set yet.

In Washington, D.C. the federal charges against Trump accuse him of “multiple criminal conspiricies to stay in power after losing the 2020 election,” the Hill reports. Of course, this is all based on Trump’s questioning of the results as much af America did as well.

Trump’s legal team has moved to recuse Federal Judge Tanya Chutkan from overseeing the case, saying that her comments about the president during other Jan 6 related cases “unavoidably taint these proceedings.” Chutkan herself will rule on that motion.

The ongoing charges that Trump mishandled documents in his posession that were siezed in the unprecedented search of his Florida home in 2022 is drawn out as motions pertaining to redacting parts of the documents continues.

In New York, Trump continues to fight the case involving Trump’s alleged payments to Stormy Daniels, and recording of those payments.

All cases are drawn out, and appear to be long shots aimed at neutralizing the former president from gaining the Oval Office again. Trump has pleaded not guilty in all cases, and continues to do so as new attacks erupt.
