As Donald Trump’s poll numbers rise Democrats are trying to keep him off the ballot.
Hearings are taking place in Colorado over whether or not he should be on the ballot.
Western Journal reported:
On Monday, hearings began that could take former President Donald Trump off of the ballot in what may be a swing state. And, surprise, surprise, the judge hearing the legal challenge was appointed by the state’s Democratic governor.
According to Colorado Newsline, the proceedings began in a courtroom in Denver under the watchful eye of Judge Sarah Wallace, an appointment of Colorado Gov. Jared Polis.
She was appointed in August 2022.
Donald Trump’s legal team has arrived in Colorado to fight the effort.
Former President Donald Trump’s legal team arrived in Colorado on Monday for the five-day trial that will decide his eligibility to be on the state ballot.
“They’re trying to put up their ‘steal’ curtain around Colorado,” Jason Miller, a senior adviser with the Trump campaign, said ahead of the trial’s start. “And when I say ‘steal’ curtain, that’s S-T-E-A-L. Democrats are trying to steal this race.”
According to the Denver Post, both Donald Trump’s legal team and the plaintiffs in the case have characterized the trial as a battle for Democracy “whether by allowing Trump to run again for the country’s highest office or, in the defense’s view, by endorsing a political charade that would rob many voters of their favored candidate”:
Trump’s legal team noted that the president repeatedly called for peace that day and that he did not lead the rioters into the Capitol that day. On the charges of insurrection, Scott Gessler, a former Colorado secretary of state on team Trump, cited Eugene v. Debs, a socialist politician who still ran for president despite being imprisoned for sedition by discouraging military recruitment during World War I.
