Democrats DESPERATELY looking for ways to prevent Trump from appearing on the ballot
By Arsenio Toledo // Oct 31, 2023

Democrats in multiple states are attempting to prevent former President Donald Trump from reappearing on the ballot in the 2024 election.

In Colorado, a lawsuit brought forward by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington is arguing that Trump should be disqualified from Colorado's ballot because he incited an insurrection in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021.

Lead attorney Eric Olson, on the first hearing of this case, claimed that Trump spouted violent rhetoric preceding the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol and encouraged a crowd to come within "40 feet" of then-Vice President Mike Pence. He argued that Trump "summoned and organized the mob."

"We are here because Trump claims, after all that, that he has the right to be president again," added Olson. "But our Constitution, the shared charter of our nation, says he cannot do so."

Olson and his organization are arguing that Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment prohibits anybody who swears an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and then "engaged in insurrection" from once again holding higher office.

Similar cases have been brought before courts in Michigan and Minnesota. Trump and his legal team argued that these lawsuits are just an attempt by Democrats to derail the Trump campaign.

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington is a liberal-leaning nonprofit organization that endorsed and campaigned for President Joe Biden in 2020.

"They send money to these dark money groups – they go to a Democratic jurisdiction and a Democratic judge," said Trump spokesman Jason Miller, who pointed out that the judge overseeing the case in Colorado had, in the past, donated to a liberal organization in the state.

Goal of court cases may be to drain Trump campaign's resources

Legal experts and commentators have pointed out that the Fourteenth Amendment does not actually allow the impeachment or barring from office of people running for president or vice president on the basis of so-called insurrection.

"'Vice president and president' are not in here," commented political commentator and podcast host Tim Pool, examining Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment. "It says 'elector of President and Vice President.' The president is explicitly not in there."

"What do you think? [They] just forgot?" commented Republican political operative Kash Patel. "They were contemplating, 'What if we have to kick out these people from office?'"

Patel then added that the principal framers of the Fourteenth Amendment in the tail-end and aftermath of the Civil War decided against this, warning that such a power should not be enshrined in the Constitution.

"They contemplated kicking out the president and then they said, 'No, that power is not going in the Constitution,'" said Patel.

Furthermore, commentators have pointed out that, if the Democrats were able to bring such a case to trial, it would end up in the Supreme Court where there is no chance the conservative-leaning court would rule against Trump. But, as Patel noted, that is not necessarily the point.

"It's going to take like three years. How long will it drain your resources?" he said. "They're doing it to everyone. I've already spent $500,000 in attorneys fees."
