Colorado Secretary Of State Who Led Attack On Trump Now Facing Own Recall

(Republican Senate News) – Republicans in the state of Colorado sent a message loud and clear to their secretary of state, threatening to have her recalled after former President Donald Trump received a major win from the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, the day before Super Tuesday. SCOTUS ruled by a vote of 9-0 that Trump could keep his name on the ballot for the GOP primary, despite the state’s Supreme Court working hard to ensure otherwise.

Secretary of State Jena Griswold was accused in a letter by Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert and a group of officials following her lead of “disenfranchising millions of Coloradans,” referring to her work to remove the former president from the ballot as a “stain on our Republic and an outright embarrassment.”

“With today’s unanimous decision by the Supreme Court of the United States to keep President Donald J. Trump on the Colorado primary ballot, it is now even more clear Coloradans should have zero faith in you to adequately protect their right to vote and oversee elections in the state of Colorado,” the letter says, according to Fox News.

The Republicans also claim that Griswold made “a selfish political decision to rig the primary election” against Trump and then noted that “all legal options” are on the table for retaliation, “including a formal recall effort.”

If you were a fly on the wall wherever Griswold is right now, you’d see her sweating bullets. This assault against Trump and MAGA in general might end up being one of the worst mistakes of her political career.

“The letter was signed by Boebert, Colorado Republican Party Chairman Dave Williams, state party Vice Chair Hope Scheppelman and Secretary Anna Feguson. On Monday, Griswold said she was disappointed when the Supreme Court overturned her decision to bar Trump from the ballot in a unanimous ruling,” Fox News divulged.

“My larger reaction is disappointment,” Griswold stated during an interview on MSNBC. “I do believe that states should be able under our constitution to bar oath-breaking insurrectionists.”

“Ultimately, this decision leaves open the door for Congress to act to pass authorizing legislation, but we know that Congress is a nearly non-functioning body,” the secretary of state continued. “So ultimately, it will be up to the American voters to save our democracy in November.”

The Colorado Supreme Court attempted to say Trump was disqualified for violating Section 3 of the 14th Amendment by inciting an “insurrection” at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. SCOTUS ruled that this article of the 14th Amendment, which bans former officeholders who “engaged in insurrection” from holding public office again, can only be enforced by Congress.

“We conclude that States may disqualify persons holding or attempting to hold state office. But States have no power under the Constitution to enforce Section 3 with respect to federal offices, especially the Presidency,” the court’s ruling read.

“Today’s decision, especially the fact that it was unanimous, 9-0, is both unifying and inspirational for the people of the United States of America,” Trump commented to Fox News Digital.

  1. What about the alleged ‘non partisan’ members of the majority Supreme Court! Just by reading the three dissents should tell you something about the majority! Totally political and hypocritical as well. I guess if you’re a democrat, you can be on the Supreme Court of Colorado and act like you’re non partisan – but wait, it was a partisan decision- in complicity with Jena Griswold!
