Supreme Court Rules Against Dems - TRUMP WINS!

Alina Habba, an attorney representing Donald Trump, defended his comments during the 2024 Colorado ballot decision, suggesting that Justice Brett Kavanaugh of the United States Supreme Court would “step up” and rule in Trump's favor.

In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Habba highlighted Justice Brett Kavanaugh as one of the nine justices who should support Trump if the Supreme Court chooses to overturn its December ruling that barred the former president from seeking reelection in Colorado.

Trump appealed the landmark ruling to the US Supreme Court, which concluded that his actions leading up to the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

This section states that no one who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” after swearing to uphold the Constitution is eligible to run for office again.

“It should be a slam dunk in the Supreme Court. I have faith in them. People like Kavanaugh, who the president fought for, who the president went through hell to get into place, he’ll step up,” Habba said. “Those people will step up not because they’re pro-Trump, but because they’re pro-law, because they’re pro-fairness, and the law on this is very clear.”

Habba’s comments on social media sparked criticism from many on the left who claimed she was attempting to influence Kavanaugh to support Trump or that his decision would be based solely on his perceived loyalty to the former president.

“As I have stated multiple times, the Constitution and law speak for itself and I believe every justice will decide on this clear-cut issue fairly,” Habba told Newsweek.

“Left-wing media’s attempt to intimidate judges who have been put through rigorous vetting due to who they were appointed by is ridiculous, and that is exactly why I addressed it. This is about the constitution and due process, nothing else.”

Trump’s attorneys filed a petition with the US Supreme Court to reverse the Colorado Supreme Court decision.

“In our system of ‘government of the people, by the people, and for the people,’ Colorado’s ruling is not and cannot be correct,” attorneys for the former president wrote in the filing with the court obtained by CNN.

With state courts and election officials across the country reaching different conclusions, CNN reported that the nation's highest court “is facing mounting pressure to settle the question of whether Trump, the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination, can be disqualified from holding public office.” The 2024 primary races start in a few weeks.

The site continued, “In our system of ‘government of the people, by the people, and for the people,’ Colorado’s ruling is not and cannot be correct,” attorneys for the former president wrote in the filing with the court obtained by CNN. The high court is also involved in other matters that could impact the federal criminal case against Trump. Trump’s appeal follows nearly a week after the Colorado GOP, also a party in the case, filed a separate appeal, and two weeks after the Colorado ruling. The ruling has been put on hold during the appeals process, and Colorado’s top election official has already stated that Trump’s name will be included on the state’s primary ballot when it’s certified on January 5 – unless the US Supreme Court decides otherwise.

Republicans are standing by Trump, according to Fox News, describing the Colorado court’s ruling as incorrect and unprecedented.

“Even if the Colorado Supreme Court were correct that President Trump cannot take office on Inauguration Day, that court had no basis to hold that he cannot run for office,” the National Republican Senatorial Committee, chaired by Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., said in a filing with the Supreme Court.

Fox added: “Last month, the Colorado Supreme Court, in a 4-3 vote, overturned a lower court ruling that allowed Trump to appear on the ballot as a presidential candidate. In their opinion, the justices on the state’s high court wrote that Trump ‘incited and encouraged’ the use of violence to prevent the peaceful transfer of power on Jan. 6, 2021, when many of his followers stormed the U.S. Capitol.”

Citing the Colorado decision, Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows has also removed Trump from the state’s ballot.

In their filing, Trump’s legal team referenced Colorado Judge Carlos Samour.

“The decision to bar former President Donald J. Trump—by all accounts the current leading Republican presidential candidate (and reportedly the current leading overall presidential candidate)—from Colorado’s presidential primary ballot flies in the face of the due process doctrine,” Samour wrote in his dissent.

“Even if we are convinced that a candidate committed horrible acts in the past—dare I say, engaged in insurrection—there must be procedural due process before we can declare that individual disqualified from holding public office,” he added.
