Democrats haven’t let up on their efforts against former President Donald Trump. Lawsuits in cases across the country are working to discredit the 45th president.
What hasn’t worked for Democrats is the legal argument they have presented to courts. Somehow these radical liberals believe the Constitution only applies when it works for them. What they have found is the Constitution works to protect the rule of law and not allow twisted minds to twist the facts.
Another judge has slammed a lawsuit in Wyoming meant to knock Trump off the ballot for the 2024 presidential election. Coming to Trump’s defense was a sensible judge and a focused politician who didn’t take the leftist bait.
Judge Misha Westby dismissed the lawsuit that mirrored legal claims in Colorado and Maine. The Cowboy State complaint cited Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment and argued that Trump was disqualified from running for office.
“I am extremely pleased with Judge Westby’s decision to dismiss Mr. Newcomb’s outrageously wrong and repugnant lawsuit to remove Donald Trump and Cynthia Lummis from the ballot in Wyoming,” Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray said.
Gray was forced to defend his office and decision to keep Trump on the ballot. He slammed liberal attempts to undermine Trump this election cycle. Trump continues to dominate Biden in the polls heading into primary season that starts later this month.
Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) was also attacked in the lawsuit which she called “frivolous.” She was accused of disqualifying herself from the Wyoming ballot because “she refused to count Pennsylvania’s electoral ballots to the electoral count required by Article II, Section 1,” the lawsuit argued.
“Efforts to remove candidates from the ballot are a direct attack on the freedom of voters to choose their elected officials and undermines the integrity of our elections,” Lummis said.
The U.S. Supreme Court has been placed squarely in the middle of this legal fight thanks to the Colorado and Maine cases.
The Colorado Supreme Court ruled 4-3 to remove Trump from the ballot, but the decision has been stayed pending litigation from Trump’s lawyers and the Colorado Republican Party.
Maine’s Secretary of State ruled Trump is ineligible for ballots in her state. She argued that the insurrection clause in the Fourteenth Amendment was reason enough to toss Trump off the ballot. His legal team successfully stalled the order until the U.S. Supreme Court renders a decision.
Following the decision in Wyoming in the Newcomb v. Gray case, Gray stated that the fight against Democrats’ legal maneuverings isn’t over.
“I will continue to fight against this nationwide effort in order to protect the integrity of our elections and ensure that the people of Wyoming can choose who to elect for themselves,” Gray said.
Legal briefings before the U.S. Supreme Court are due later this month with an expected ruling in February.
