(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – On Wednesday, the lawyers for a Colorado group of voters are going to deliver the closing arguments in a lawsuit that is looking to block former President Donald Trump from appearing on the state’s ballot over his involvement in the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack.
The voters are looking to use the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which specifically disqualifies anyone who has engaged in insurrection, from holding office again. The provision was ratified after the U.S. Civil War and has been used by several people who argue that it applies to Trump.
The case is only one of the multiple attempts in different states to block Trump’s candidacy through the use of the Amendment. However, this is the first of these legal challenges to have gone to trial.
The watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is representing the voters in this case and was the one to file the lawsuit against Colorado’s secretary of state. Trump, who is leading the Republican primary race, is widely expected to become the GOP nominee in the presidential election.
The lawyers in this case are going to make their final attempt to convince Colorado District Court Judge Sarah Wallace, who is presiding over the case, that Trump should be blocked.
Trump’s lawyers, on the other hand, have argued that Trump had not incited the violence that occurred on January 6, 2021, when his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to block the certification of the electoral college.
