As more legal experts examine the Colorado Supreme Courts decision there is a degree of irony shining through.

The case was filed by six Republicans, and the Colorado Supreme Court cited a previous ruling by Justice Gorsuch in their decision.

Trump's own party did this, not Democrats.

And while the ruling was 4-3, the decent was over the applicability of Colorado Election Law, which is not something the SCOTUS will be interested in, they will only be ruling on the Constitutional issues, and here it was all but unanimous making it all but impossible for Trump to get a result he wants.

The ruling does not apply outside of Colorado, and the state high court, whose justices were all appointed by Democratic governors, paused its decision until Jan. 4 — one day before the deadline for Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold to certify the candidates for the state's March 5 primary.

this sound kind of fishy

this is a lie "The case was filed by six Republicans"

Colorado case brought on behalf of six voters :The petitioners include former Rep. Claudine Schneider, a registered Republican who represented a congressional district in Rhode Island from 1981 to 1991, and endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008, Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Joe Biden in 2020. Formerly a Republican (Democrat)
Jena Griswold: (democrat) Krista Kafer, a conservative Brooks and Anderson are now unaffiliated voters.


represented by: Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) a liberal / progressive. liberal political operative David Brock. "major power play that aligns liberal muscle more fully behind the Democratic Party". the group had aggressively targeted Republican public officials, the organization has almost exclusively pursued Republicans and conservative organizations through federal complaints

Everything is fishy when it doesn't go someone's way.

There hasn't been a Rep Gov since 2008, perhaps that's why the appointee and elected judges were from Dem Gov. What is supposed to happen when a vacancy is open, wait for a Republican Gov?? Me thinks some complain too much.

Trump lost Colorado by 13 percentage points in 2020 and in that sense, it would have no bearing on a 2024 election if the restriction was to remain confined to just that state. Trump is not going to win Colorado even if he is in the race. However, the very fact that this has gone this far means it is likely other states will continue to press to keep insurrectionist contestants off the ballot.

I understand who this coming from. Try to keep up, the lie was as quoted above this is a lie "The case was filed by six Republicans"

keeping some one off the ballet for jan 6 riot. No one that has been arrested, have been charges, much less found guilty of an insurrection. Trump has not even been charged with an insurrection much less found guilt. Just like everything else wrong again.

possibly true, but with out any legal evidence, removing from the ballot sound wrong as the day is long.

It is in the US Constitution, if you don't like it, change it, isn't that what Republicans shout every time the 2nd Amendment comes up for debate. Or is it only non republicans who are bound by the laws in the US. And while it won't be part of the SCOTUS remit, the Court did find trump engaged in an Insurrection, Jack Smith's case is just the cherry on the top

As for who brought the case, not being in Court myself, I can only go on the reporting out of the US.

I would like to see that. Truth is easy to prove.
To find someone guilty of something there has to be court action. Little minds think a person is guilty just because one thinks so. That is not the way law works in the most powerful country in the world.

Jack Smith is another incompetent attorney that could not get a conviction in the most ignored court in the world "the hague".

Sky New au is not reported out of the US. If getting the information off the Internet, we all know you can't lie on the Internet, no way to double check information with the internet. You don't know who filed the case? Uninformed inform, misinformation, repeat a lie! Truth.

Amendment 14, Section 3 refers to "insurrection or rebellion" and does not stipulate the culmination of any legal process or conviction before prohibition of running. But I am content to let the courts quibble over that. Intentional or not, there are many vagaries in the U.S. Constitution.

But that just works for the previous president, not a civilian son of the present President Biden.
