Supreme Court is urged to rule Trump is ineligible to be president again because of the Jan. 6 riot

February 6, 2024

The Supreme Court should declare that Donald Trump is ineligible to be president again because he spearheaded the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol in an effort to overturn his 2020 election loss, lawyers leading the fight to keep him off the ballot told the justices on Friday. In a filing filled with vivid descriptions of the Jan. 6, 2021, violence at the Capitol, the lawyers urged the justices not to flinch from doing their constitutional duty and to uphold a first-of-its-kind Colorado court decision to kick the 2024 Republican presidential front-runner off the state's primary ballot. The court will hear arguments in less than two weeks in a historic case that has the potential to disrupt the 2024 presidential election.
