Colorado judges face death threats for kicking Trump off ballot

 December 22, 2023

Law enforcement is investigating death threats to the judges who kicked Donald Trump off the ballot in Colorado.

The court narrowly ruled that Trump is ineligible to be president because he caused an "insurrection" on January 6th.

While partisan Democrats have celebrated the ruling as a victory for "democracy," many have criticized it as undemocratic and divisive.

Threats to Colorado court

Three of the judges on the all-Democrat court dissented, calling the ruling a "procedural Frankenstein" that ignored due process.

The court's unprecedented ruling has encouraged partisan operatives to target the ballot in states like Michigan, a pivotal battleground.

Trump's defenders note that he has not been convicted of insurrection or even charged with that crime by Jack Smith, the federal prosecutor seeking to convict Trump over January 6th.

But Democrats have argued, more and more earnestly, that extreme measures may be necessary to prevent Trump from being able to win a democratic election.

Trump has furiously blasted efforts to prosecute him and remove him from the ballot as an attempt to interfere with the will of the people. Anger toward the judges and prosecutors involved is widespread.

"This ends when we kill these f--kers," read one threat to the Colorado judges.

Another user wrote, "What do you call 7 justices from the Colorado Supreme Court at the bottom of the ocean?" to which another replied, "A good start."

America unravels...

Law enforcement went to the home of one of the judges on Thursday but found that an alleged threat to the residence was bogus.

Threats against public officials have become more common in America's increasingly polarized and violent political climate.

A man was arrested last year for plotting to assassinate conservative Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh, and just this week a man pled guilty to trying to kill Chief Justice John Roberts, another conservative.

It is widely expected that the Supreme Court will overturn Colorado's ruling if the opportunity arises. That would likely engender harassment and potential violence toward the justices from the far left.

The Supreme Court is also going to come under pressure as the justices wade into Trump's criminal trials.

The court rejected a request from Smith on Friday that would have sped up Trump's January 6th prosecution.
