Democrats Spearhead Legislative Moves to Oust Trump from 2024 Ballots Despite SC Ruling

United States: Maryland Representative Jamie Raskin recently participated in a debate show hosted during CNN’s ‘Newsroom’ and messaged the Supreme Court that “he has accepted the challenge” possessed by the highest court in the federal judiciary of the United States.

The statement has been shared by US Representative after an unanimous decision was ruled by the Supreme Court on Monday. The decision outlined that former president of the United States Donald Trump cannot be kicked by Colorado off its 2024 state primary ballot, neither can any other state.

The decision about enforcing the Fourteenth Amendment through a law passed by Congress was determined by five of the six conservative justices – which was also strongly opposed by three (3) liberal justices.

What does Raskin say about the unanimous decision by the Supreme Court?

While addressing the recently announced decision by the Supreme Court, Raskin told CNN that he disagree with “that interpretation, just because the other parts of the Fourteenth Amendment are self-executing.”

He continued saying, “In any event, the Supreme Court punted and said it’s up to Congress to act. And so I am working with a number of my colleagues, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Eric Swalwell, to revive legislation that we had to set up a process by which we could determine that someone who committed insurrection is disqualified by Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

What decision was ruled out by the Colorado State Supreme Court?

According to the latest statement announced by the Colorado state Supreme Court, during the January 6 attack, former US President Donald Trump was engaged in insurrection – and this is why he was not eligible to appear on the primary ballot.

Following this, Maine’s secretary of state also announced that Donald Trump will not be eligible to participate in the state’s ballot. In addition to this, he was then booted from the Illinois state ballot just last week.

However, the ruling by the Supreme Court mentioned that former president of the United States will be returning to all three ballots. The decision put end over dozens of lawsuits which were in dilemma about the participation of Trump in other states’ ballots.

Raskin’s attempt!

Additionally, Raskin’s bold move to revive legislation targeting Trump seems desperate. Despite the constant efforts from the left to criticize and discredit Trump, their attempts to prevent him from holding public office have consistently failed, according to the reports.  

The House’s biased impeachment show and the Senate’s subsequent acquittal highlight the weakness of their argument. However, undeterred by these setbacks, Raskin and his allies continue their futile quest for political payback.

The matter can be summarized, Representative Raskin’s criticism of the Supreme Court is merely an obvious attempt to discredit its decision and promote his partisan goals. The Court’s unanimous ruling reaffirmed the fundamental principles of the constitutional republic and exposes Raskin’s misguided interpretation of the law.

According to the reports, instead of resorting to unfounded attacks, Raskin would be wise to accept the Court’s decision, uphold the rule of law, and concentrate on addressing the actual challenges our nation faces. It’s time for Raskin and those like him to set aside their partisan grievances and start working for the American people, not against them.
