A hearing has been scheduled for October 30th to determine the eligibility of Donald Trump's presence on the Colorado ballot, focusing on whether the utilization of the 14th Amendment is valid.
A watchdog group called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has urged for the exclusion of Trump from the ballot. They argue that a provision within the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution prohibits insurrectionists from holding office.
“We will present the case that Donald Trump is disqualified under the 14th amendment at an evidentiary hearing in a Colorado court, scheduled to begin on October 30,” he stated in a social media post. “@CREWcrew and our co-counsel eagerly anticipate presenting the evidence on behalf of our plaintiffs from Colorado.”
The group is seeking a judge’s ruling to disqualify Trump, thereby resolving the uncertainty surrounding whether his name should appear on the ballot.
Trump is expected to challenge an unfavorable ruling, which could potentially compel the U.S. Supreme Court with conservative leanings to render the final decision.
