Turley Lays Out Single Reason All 9 SCOTUS Justices Should Unanimously Vote To Strike Down Trump Ballot Ruling



Jonathan Turley, during an appearance on Fox News on Wednesday, declared that the U.S. Supreme Court should vote unanimously to overturn the decision of the Colorado Supreme Court to bar former president Donald Trump from appearing on the primary ballot in that state in the 2024 presidential election.

“It’s not a get-out-of-free card because there’s laws regarding insurrection and incitement. And notably, Trump was not charged with that,” Turley said. “You had a very motivated special counsel, Jack Smith, who hit Trump with anything he could, but he conspicuously left out insurrection, sedition, because he couldn’t prove it, because the evidence is not there. So that only adds to the problems here, but the real issue for the Supreme Court is far more fundamental and frankly chilling.

“You know, this country is the most successful and stable constitutional system in history. Now after two centuries of that, what these four justices have done is to introduce a destabilizing element in that system. And it’s gonna go to the Supreme Court and this may be the ultimate challenge for Chief Justice Roberts. I have no question they will overturn this decision, but they should do it unanimously. They should do it in one voice, all nine and not divide on this. It’s too important not to speak as one.”

The Colorado Supreme Court’s decision, a 4–3 vote, was based on the claim that Trump violated the 14th Amendment’s “insurrectionist ban.” This ruling posited that no act of Congress was needed to remove Trump from the 2024 presidential primary ballot, citing his alleged involvement in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

Chief Justice Brian Boatright, in his dissent, argued against this interpretation of the state law.

“In the absence of an insurrection-related conviction, I would hold that a request to disqualify a candidate under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment is not a proper cause of action under Colorado’s election code.”

Trump responded to the ruling, accusing the Colorado justices of politicizing the 2024 election in favor of President Joe Biden and alleging that Biden had used the Department of Justice against him.

“‘Justice’ weaponization is a very dirty game to play, and it can have repercussions far greater than anything that Biden or his Thugs could understand. They ought to withdraw all of their Fake, Political Indictments against their Republican Opponent, me, immediately. This is a Pandora’s box, that works two ways, and it should be closed and tightly sealed RIGHT NOW,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post.
