The Colorado Supreme Court made a historic decision on Tuesday, ruling that former President Donald Trump is ineligible for the presidency under the U.S. Constitution's insurrection clause. As a result, they removed him from the state's presidential primary ballot. This sets the stage for a potential showdown in the nation's highest court to determine whether Trump can continue his campaign as the Republican frontrunner.
In a 4-3 decision, the justices, all of whom were appointed by Democratic governors, cited Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to disqualify Trump from holding the office of president. This marks the first time in history that this amendment has been utilized to remove a presidential candidate from consideration.
The Colorado Supreme Court overruled a district court judge who had ruled that although Trump had incited an insurrection during the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol, it was unclear if the provision applied to the presidency. The higher court disagreed and deemed Trump unfit for the ballot.
However, the court has temporarily suspended its decision until January 4 or until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the matter.
