Prediction On Trump SCOTUS Case Goes Viral

According to law professor Jonathan Turley of George Washington University, the Supreme Court will consider on Sunday whether disqualifying former president Donald Trump would constitute “self-executing.”

In a case that began on December 19, the Colorado Supreme Court barred Trump from participating in the state’s presidential primary ballot, citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. On February 8, the Supreme Court will consider Trump’s appeal of this decision.

On December 28, Maine’s Democratic Secretary of State Shenna Bellows ruled that Trump could not be on the ballot, but a judge in the state’s superior court put the decision on hold. The Maine Supreme Court did not issue a ruling in a decision made on January 24.

Following his criticism of Colorado Democratic Secretary of State Jana Griswold for presenting “a silly argument,” Chief Justice John Roberts would endeavor to attain a high majority in every subsequent case, as pointed out by Turley. Turley further stated that whether Trump might be disqualified automatically under the 14th Amendment was debatable.

Trump was not charged with insurrection by Special Counsel Jack Smith.

The decision by the Colorado Supreme Court to exclude former President Donald Trump from the 2024 GOP primary ballot in the state under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment was met with strong criticism by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Throughout the expansive two-hour oral argument in the landmark case Trump v. Anderson, every one of the nine justices voiced doubt that a single state possesses the power to exclude a federal candidate from the ballot because they are an “insurrectionist.”

The judges mainly avoided discussing the facts or the merits of the Colorado verdict, even though the attorneys representing the voters who challenged Trump’s eligibility brought up specifics of the former president’s attempts to reverse the 2020 election results multiple times.
