I already know what you are thinking…
Why would Donald Trump appeal a case he won? I thought the same exact thing until I read the ruling.
The ballot case in Colorado, Anderson v. Griswold, No. 2023CV32577, landed in Trump’s favor, but Trump and the plaintiffs are both appealing the case on different grounds.
Trump’s legal team is upset about “unsupported” findings by the judge in the official ruling of the case.
The ruling in the case fell in Trump’s favor, as he will be permitted to add his name to the ballot, which was the major issue at hand.
However, in the ruling, the judge made some comments that did not sit very well with Trump’s legal team, as she basically convicted him of insurrection, even though Trump has not been charged with that crime in any of his cases.
Judge Sarah Wallace, an appointee of Democrat Gov. Jared Polis, ruled that Trump had engaged in insurrection, but that he was not acting as an agent of the government at the time, as defined by the 14th Amendment.
Democrats have been trying to have Trump removed via Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, even though Trump has not been charged or convicted of insurrection, as most legal pundits agree would be needed for this clause to be activated.
The fact that the judge more or less issued a summary judgment in the case regarding insurrection is, rightfully, the point of contention of the Trump legal team.
Mike Davis, founder of the Article III Project, stated, “The Democrats have been running lawfare and election interference against President Trump since he came down the golden escalator before the 2016 presidential election.
“They spied on his presidential campaign. They spied on him as President of the United States. They falsely accused him of Russian collusion. They impeached him twice for nonsense. They indicted him four times for non-crimes. They’re trying to bankrupt his business through a bogus civil fraud lawsuit. They’ve gagged him illegally twice.
“This is all backfiring. It’s actually propelling President Trump back into the White House.“
You guys know I pull no punches on this front, and if I thought the gag order was warranted, I would say it, but that is far from the case.
Trump has every right to defend himself on this front, especially because Democrats will use this case to attack him after the primary race is over.
