This has Biden’s fingerprints all over it!
The leaders of the organization that instigated the legal action resulting in the exclusion of former President Donald Trump from the 2024 Colorado ballot were found to have made substantial donations to President Biden’s campaign and victory fund, according to documents examined by Fox News Digital.
On Tuesday, the Colorado Supreme Court issued a decision disqualifying Trump from the ballot based on the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, citing his alleged involvement in the Capitol riots of January 6, 2021.
The court’s majority emphasized the weightiness of their decision, stating, “We do not arrive at these conclusions lightly,” and underscoring their commitment to applying the law impartially, regardless of public sentiment.
The lawsuit against Trump in Colorado was filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a self-proclaimed “nonpartisan” watchdog group. CREW claimed to act on behalf of “six Republican and unaffiliated Colorado voters, including former state, federal, and local officials.”
However, key figures in CREW’s leadership, such as Chair Beth Nolan and Vice Chair Wayne Jordan, had notably contributed significant amounts to Biden’s campaign and victory fund. Nolan donated $2,800 to Biden’s campaign and $3,000 to the Biden Victory Fund in 2020, while Jordan contributed $300,000 to the Biden Victory Fund.
Despite its “nonpartisan” label, CREW has been perceived as leaning left. Former board chair David Brock, a liberal activist, orchestrated plans to oppose Trump’s presidency in a meeting with donors in early 2017.
Significantly, CREW has received substantial funding from major Democratic donors, including George Soros. Between 2017 and 2021, CREW received $2.85 million in funding from two nonprofits affiliated with the Soros-funded Open Society Foundations.
CREW’s involvement in the lawsuit ultimately led to the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to exclude Trump from the state’s ballots. In a 4 to 3 ruling, the court invoked the 14th Amendment, claiming that Trump was “disqualified” due to his alleged role in the events of January 6.
Justice Carlos Samour, one of the dissenting justices, argued that the decision lacked procedural due process and risked causing chaos. Trump’s campaign has expressed its intention to promptly appeal the Colorado court’s ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court, where there is widespread anticipation that the decision may be overturned.
