Bill Barr Says SCOTUS Bill Will 'Slap' Down Trump Colorado Disqualification

 December 22, 2023

Bill Barr thinks that it's only a matter of time before the recent Colorado Supreme Court decision to keep Trump off the Republican primary ballot in that state is slapped down by the U.S. Supreme Court.

"As you know, I strongly oppose Donald Trump for the Republican nomination. I think this case is legally wrong and untenable. I think this kind of action of stretching the law and taking hyper-aggressive missions to knock Trump out of the race they are counterproductive. They backfire, as you know. He feeds on grievance just like a fire feeds on oxygen. This will end up as a grievance that helps him," Barr recently said on CNN.

"To deprive somebody of the right to hold office requires due process, an adjudication of two core issues. For insurrection, did the public disturbance rise to the level of insurrection, what was the role of the individual? What is it engagement? Did they do something to break your oath of office? Those are complicated facts, and this was denied due process. It was a five-day hearing. There was no jury," Barr continued.

Host Jake Tapper asked, "How do you think the U.S. Supreme Court is going to go on this? Do you think they will take it up and rule against it?"

Barr replied, "I think if they take it up, they’re going to slap it down quickly. I hope they do take it up quickly and slap it down."
