Former President Trump had a bad day for court decisions Friday, with a Colorado judge ruling that a lawsuit that’s trying to keep him off the ballot in 2024 using the ludicrous 14th Amendment argument can go forward. There are other such cases around the country receiving various and contradictory rulings. So far, the Supreme Court has refused to step and do its job. But they eventually will have to rule on this, so it would be nice if they’d speak up and protect the Constitution and “our democracy” by putting the kibosh on this nonsense before we actually hold the election.
Also, the judge in Trump’s kangaroo court fraud trial in New York ruled that his daughter Ivanka will have to testify against her own father, I guess because this trial just didn’t seem low enough. The prosecutors claim Ivanka has relevant information, and the judge said, “Ms. Trump has clearly availed herself of the privilege of doing business in New York." After seeing this attempt at twisting the law to destroy a man’s business out of political animosity, I don’t think I would call that a “privilege.”
I hope Trump’s attorneys will ask her to state under oath and into the court record for posterity exactly what she thinks of both the judge and New York’s Attorney General Letitia James.
