Ted Cruz: ‘Supreme Court Will Side With Trump’

Daily Report January 10,2024

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) maintains that the U.S. Supreme Court will side with former President Donald Trump over his removal from the Colorado 2024 ballot.

The Colorado Supreme Court found that Trump’s conduct leading to the January 6 Capitol protest amounted to an insurrection. The Court, in a 4-3 decision, ruled that the former president be kicked off the state’s 2024 ballot.

“A majority of the court holds that Trump is disqualified from holding the office of president under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment,” the court wrote in its 4-3 decision.

 

Cruz, while speaking on the latest episode of his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson, blasted the court’s decision adding that Special Counsel Jack Smith did not indict the former president because he knew he had no evidence to back up an insurrection charge.

“Jack Smith is in DC with a very liberal judge, he’s got a DC jury pool that is 94% Democrat, he’s got the most favorable environment in the world and you know what he hasn’t done? Indicted Trump for insurrection, and the only reason he hasn’t is because there’s no remote evidence that would prove that Trump had engaged in insurrection,” Cruz said. “Donald Trump sent some tweets and stood up and gave a speech in which he told people to go peaceable, go peacefully… peaceful. There, you cannot prove as a matter of law that telling people to be peaceful, is engaged in insurrection. Insurrection is a legal term. And there’s a reason no one has charged him with it because you couldn’t pass the laugh test.”

Following the Colorado Supreme Court ruling, Trump’s legal spokeswoman, Alina Habba, blasted the decision, adding that the ruling attacks the” very heart of this nation’s democracy.”

“This ruling, issued by the Colorado Supreme Court, attacks the very heart of this nation’s democracy. It will not stand, and we trust that the Supreme Court will reverse this unconstitutional order.”

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear Trump’s appeal of the Colorado ruling. The Supreme issued a brief order on Friday stating that it will hear arguments on Feb. 8.
