Colorado Hearing Attempts to Remove Trump From the Presidential Ballot
A court in Colorado began a hearing on October 30 to determine if Donald Trump can be banned from holding public office.
A group of six Republican and unaffiliated voters filed a lawsuit that attempts to disqualify Trump from appearing on Colorado’s 2024 presidential election ballot by claiming he incited an insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021, on Capitol Hill.
Prosecutors say his involvement means he violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which states:
No person shall … hold any office, civil or military … who, having previously taken an oath, … engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same ….
According to attorney Eric Olson, Trump “summoned and organized the mob” that entered the Capitol building; therefore, he cannot run for president.
However, Trump did not “organize the mob,” neither was the January 6 protest an insurrection (see “January 6 Was a Setup”).
When it comes to decide who should lead our nation, it’s the people of the United States of America who make that decision, not six voters in Colorado who’ve picked and chosen who they should file a lawsuit against.

Supreme Court: The trial is expected to continue through to Friday, and a ruling is likely to be made by mid-November. No matter the court’s decision, the ruling is expected to be appealed to the state’s Supreme Court. That ruling could then be appealed to the United States Supreme Court.
A similar case against Trump will be heard in the Minnesota Supreme Court on Thursday. Other legal challenges are taking place in Michigan, New Hampshire and Arizona.
If any one of these states can remove Trump from the 2024 presidential election ballot, all other 49 states would have grounds to do the same. It likely will come down to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision.
Prophecy says: In his book America Under Attack, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry explains that Bible prophecy reveals Donald Trump will once again be president of the United States. The Supreme Court could play a major role in that outcome.
After the 2020 presidential election, several cases came before the Supreme Court that could have helped overturn the fraud that had been committed, yet in every case the court declined to hear them. This demonstrated the justices’ lack of courage and underscored the fact that there is not “any helper for Israel” (2 Kings 14:26).
However, we cannot overlook the statement in the prophecy of Amos 7 about the role of “the kingdom’s court.” … This reference strongly suggests to me that the [Supreme Court] will play a decisive role in returning Mr. Trump to the presidency.
