Roberts Brings Up Narrative of Revenge Disqualifications During Colorado Arguments

The Supreme Court finally heard arguments on Thursday in the Colorado case to have Trump removed from the ballot via Section III of the 14th Amendment.

During arguments, Chief Justice Roberts brought up the point of the dangers of allowing states to remove a candidate from a ballot.

One of the points of his argument was that if this moves forward, we could see other states remove people from the ballot simply because they did not like the candidate.

Joe is Out

My argument against this case has always been that an individual needs to be indicted and convicted of insurrection or a derivative of it, such as sedition.

There are also federal statutes that come into play on this front, as was covered by Justice Kavanaugh at one point.

Justice Thomas, however, brought up a narrative that I had not yet considered… individual states weaponizing the idea itself to start to disqualify candidates for other reasons.

In the case of Joe Biden, one could easily make the argument that even though he is now in office, there are concerns that his mental cognizance is impaired.

To that point, could a state like Texas disqualify Trump based on the 25th Amendment? And yes, I know that the Cabinet needs to activate this, but I am just using it as an example.

Here is Justice Roberts on the subject…

My only hope now is that the court goes above and beyond in its ruling to clarify when this amendment can be activated to disqualify a candidate.

If it does not, we could be starting down the barrel at more cases taking a different approach to have Trump removed.

The Court needs to put an end to this nonsense once and for all.
