“They’re trying to put up their ‘steal’ curtain around Colorado,” Jason Miller, a senior adviser with the Trump campaign, said ahead of the trial’s start. “And when I say ‘steal’ curtain, that’s S-T-E-A-L. Democrats are trying to steal this race.”
The Denver Post reports that the plaintiffs in the case and Donald Trump’s legal team have described the trial as a fight for democracy, “whether by endorsing a political charade that would rob many voters of their favored candidate or, in the defense’s view, by allowing Trump to run again for the country’s highest office”:
“A group of Colorado Republican and unaffiliated voters, backed by the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, filed the challenge in Denver District Court.
Their lawsuit seeks, based on Trump’s alleged role on January 6, to keep him off the ballot under a provision of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that bars people who engaged in insurrection or rebellion from holding office.”
This is the biggest story of the day that no one is discussing.

On January 6, the plaintiffs presented testimony from police officers who described the brutality they encountered from the rioters.
Officer Daniel Hodges of the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Department stated, “(Protesters) told us we were on the wrong side of history when we were defending the United States Capitol and the peaceful transfer of power.”
“The president did not lead the rioters into the Capitol that day,” as stated by Trump’s legal team, “and he made repeated calls for calm during that day.”
Former Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, a member of Team Trump, referenced Eugene v. Debs, a socialist politician imprisoned for sedition during World War I who nevertheless ran for president in support of his position regarding the charges of insurrection.
“When there are many definitions (of insurrection), that really means there are none,” Gessler said. “… Frankly, they’re making up the standards so it fits the facts of January 6.”
Gessler described the final report of the House January 6 committee as a “poisoned” political document that had no place in a real court of law when the plaintiffs attempted to bring it as evidence.
“A federal court in New Hampshire dismissed a similar case, ruling that the Fourteenth Amendment claim is a ‘nonjusticiable political question,'” according to reports.
“Trump has not been convicted of insurrection and was acquitted by the U.S. Senate of charges of engaging in insurrection,” it added. He continues to deny wrongdoing. The Colorado case could likely land before the Supreme Court, which has never before ruled on the Civil War-era amendment.”
