Brief explains to Supreme Court how Colorado judges blundered badly

A brief has been filed with the U.S. Supreme Court explaining how Democrat judges in Colorado blundered badly on a constitutional question when they removed President Donald Trump's name from the 2024 presidential primary ballot.

The American Center for Law and Justice is representing the Colorado GOP in the case, and Trump's lawyers will be filing additional arguments.

At issue is the lawfare that Democrats, afraid that their candidate, Joe Biden, will lose to Trump in the 2024 race, have been waging against Trump. They want him removed from the ballot, so they won't have to worry about a Biden loss.

Their claim is that he's an "insurrectionist" because of his comments on the faults that were found in the 2020 election.

But he's never been charged with such a crime, and when Democrats in Congress made a similar complaint, he was acquitted by the Senate.

The ACLU reported that there are those trying to "misappropriate the 14th Amendment to keep voters from choosing the candidates of their choice."

"In Trump v. Anderson, the Supreme Court will determine whether the Colorado Supreme Court erred by removing former President Trump from the presidential ballot and preventing the Republican Party from having the chance to select him as a presidential candidate. We represent the Colorado Republican Party, a party in the case, and are defending at the Supreme Court the Colorado Republican Party’s right to freely select its own presidential candidates," the report said.

It continued, "There are many reasons why the novel theories the Colorado Supreme Court has adopted are irreconcilable with the law."

Its brief focused on several of the leading reasons.

"First, the President is not an officer of the United States to whom Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment applies. Second, Section Three is not self-executing; that is, Section Three does not, absent congressional implementation, empower the fifty states and the District of Columbia each to veto national presidential candidates in their separate jurisdictions," the report said.
