Warren warns Democrats against removing Trump from 2024 ballots

 January 10, 2024

In response to two states' recent moves to remove former president Donald Trump from their 2024 ballots, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said that voters should have the final say instead.

Warren cautioned while expressing her belief that the previous president "participated in an insurrection" in an interview with WCVB-TV, a local station, as The Epoch Times reported.

Despite claims to the contrary by the secretary of state in Maine and the Supreme Court in Colorado, President Trump was removed from the ballots in those states last month, even though he has not been found guilty of or even tried to execute an insurrection.

“But I want to beat him at the ballot box,” Warren, who is a a left-leaning Democrat and a former Harvard professor, told the outlet.

“I want to see this resolved at the ballot box because I don’t want there to be any question about the legitimacy of it,” she added, while again criticizing Trump for claiming that the 2020 election was fraudulent.

The Court Cases

Arguments are set to take place in February after the U.S. Supreme Court agreed late last week to examine President Trump's appeal of the Colorado court's decision. Additionally, his legal team has appealed the ruling in Maine.

Democrats Shenna Bellows of Maine and judges from the Colorado Supreme Court asserted last month that President Trump's behavior after the 2020 election and the Capitol breach on January 6, 2021, amounted to "engagement in insurrection."

Based on the 14th Amendment's Section 3, they have asserted is a reason to prevent him from being listed on the ballot.

While the appeals process is underway, the rulings in Maine and Colorado to exclude President Trump from ballots have been suspended in both states.

The former president is facing additional challenges in an umber of other states.

‘Big Trouble’

Last weekend, Trump made a threat that the Supreme Court may lead to "big trouble" if they rule against the ballot question.

At an Iowa speech, the ex-president expressed his desire for "fair treatment" going on to say that "if we don’t [get fair treatment] our country’s in big, big trouble. Does everybody understand what I’m saying?”

The Supreme Court will "step up" to reject the ballot choices, according to Alina Habba, the former president's spokeswoman and attorney. Habba claims this because the decisions are "pro-law" and "pro-fairness."

“I think it should be a slam dunk in the Supreme Court. I have faith in them,” Ms. Habba told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “You know, people like Kavanaugh, who the president fought for, who the president went through how to get into place, he’ll step up.”
