ترامب يتحدى قرار حظره من خوض الانتخابات في كولورادو

By Ninian Carter

December 20, 2023 - من المقرر أن يستأنف دونالد ترامب قرار المحكمة العليا الأميركية - التي ساعد في تشكيلها كرئيس - بعد صدور حكم في كولورادو بمنعه من خوض الانتخابات التمهيدية للرئاسة في الولاية بسبب مشاركته في تمرد.

Colorado’s Supreme Court has ruled that former President Donald Trump is disqualified from holding office again because he engaged in an insurrection over the U.S. Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.

Colorado’s decision will go into effect on January 4, 2024 – the eve of Colorado’s March 5 Republican primary.

Similar challenges in New Hampshire, Michigan and Minnesota have all been dismissed in court.

As Trump’s lawyers have already said he will appeal the verdict, the shock ruling, which cites Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, will put an exceptional case before the U.S. Supreme Court – possibly being forced to decide the question for all 50 U.S. states.

The U.S. Supreme Court is made up of nine justices, six of whom are Republicans, and 3 of whom were appointed by Trump during his presidency.
