Former president Donald Trump has filed his appeal with the Supreme Court to overturn last month’s ruling that he can’t appear on the Colorado Republican primary ballot. The Colorado Supreme Court ruled that Trump is disqualified under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. which bans any “officer of the United States” who swore an oath to the constitution and engaged in insurrection from holding office. But Trump’s lawyers insist that January 6th “was not ‘insurrection’ and Trump in no way ‘engaged’ in ‘insurrection'” Colorado secretary of state Jena Griswold has said she will abide by whatever the highest court’s decision is. The bigger issue is that the deadline to certify the primary ballot was Friday, January 5th 2024.
