Trump sends a stark warning to the Supreme Court

The former president has had it with the high court. His patience has worn thin.

And Donald Trump sends a stark warning to the Supreme Court.

The Colorado Supreme Court made a devastating ruling late last year that cited the insurrection clause of the 14th Amendment as the reason why Donald Trump could not appear on the state’s ballot.

Trump and his attorneys are challenging the ruling and have asked the United States Supreme Court to overturn the decision.

In their brief to the nation’s high court, they warned that if the Colorado Court’s decision is not overturned, then “chaos” and “bedlam” could arise within the nation.

“The Court should put a swift and decisive end to these ballot-disqualification efforts, which threaten to disenfranchise tens of millions of Americans and which promise to unleash chaos and bedlam if other state courts and state officials follow Colorado’s lead and exclude the likely Republican presidential nominee from their ballots,” Trump’s attorneys’ brief said.

The premise for Colorado’s ruling was that former President Trump allegedly participated and engaged in an insurrection during the events on January 6, 2021.

The brief from Trump’s attorneys claims otherwise.

“The Court should also reverse because nothing that President Trump did in response to the 2020 election or on January 6, 2021, even remotely qualifies as ‘insurrection,'” the brief states.

“No prosecutor has attempted to charge President Trump with insurrection under 28 U.S.C. § 2383 in the three years since January 6, 2021, despite the relentless and ongoing investigations of President Trump.”

“And for good reason: President Trump’s words that day called for peaceful and patriotic protest and respect for law and order.”

Special counsel Jack Smith was able to strike down a four-count indictment against Trump last year.

The indictment included a charge against Trump’s alleged effort to overturn the 2020 election, but it did not charge him with insurrection.

“President Trump never told his supporters to enter the Capitol, and he did not lead, direct, or encourage any of the unlawful acts that occurred at the Capitol – either in his speech at the Ellipse or in any of his statements or communications before or during the events of January 6, 2021,” the brief went on to say.

“President Trump also sent tweets throughout the day instructing his supporters to ‘remain peaceful’ and ‘[s]tay peaceful,’ and he released a video telling the crowd ‘to go home now.'”

The Left is desperate to use insurrection as a reason why Donald Trump should not be eligible for the presidency.

But what they fail to realize is that he has not been found guilty of insurrection in court.

Therefore it’s unjust for any state to remove him from a ballot using insurrection as the reasoning.

However, abiding by the law hasn’t stopped the radical Left in the past.
