Supreme Court Bans Trump From 2024 Ballot?
Thus cannot be happening!
In a recent discussion on The Stephanie Miller Show, former federal prosecutor and legal analyst Glenn Kirschner shared his insights on the legal challenges faced by Donald Trump regarding his eligibility for the 2024 presidential election. Kirschner expressed the opinion that the U.S. Supreme Court is likely to permit the removal of Trump’s name from state ballots in the upcoming election.
Trump, currently the leading contender for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, is confronted with legal actions seeking to exclude him from the ballot in various states. Two states have already barred his name from consideration in primary elections, citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which disqualifies officials who have engaged in insurrection. Trump faces federal charges related to his alleged involvement in the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.
Despite maintaining his innocence and accusing those behind the lawsuits of election interference, Trump has been removed from primary ballots in Maine and Colorado. His appeal of these decisions has brought the matter to the Supreme Court, with hearings expected to commence in early February.
Kirschner speculated on the Supreme Court’s possible ruling, suggesting that they might frame the issue as a states’ rights matter and disqualify Trump based on constitutional grounds. He pointed out that the conservative bloc on the Supreme Court could be motivated by self-preservation, aiming to maintain independence from the executive branch.
The legal battle involves multiple states, with Maine’s highest court recently refusing to intervene until the Supreme Court decides on the Colorado case. The U.S. Supreme Court’s impending decision on Section 3 of the 14th Amendment is anticipated to have significant implications for the 2024 presidential election, possibly shaping a rematch between Trump and President Joe Biden. The outcome remains uncertain, but the legal proceedings underscore the pivotal role the Supreme Court may play in determining Trump’s eligibility for the upcoming election.
