“The walls are closing in fast”: Trump may be removed from the ballot, Republican warns

Republican presidential candidate John Anthony Castro, who dedicated his money to using legal weapons to keep Trump off the ballot, warned that the “walls are closing in” on the former president.

Denver District Court Judge Sarah B. Wallace approved CREW’s request for a protective order against intimidating and attempting to intimidate those involved in the case. Watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW) filed suit after Castro.

The Judge explained the decision

Judge Wallace said, “I 100 percent understand everybody’s concerns for the parties, the lawyers, and frankly myself and my staff, based on what we’ve seen in other cases.”

Trump lawyer objected

Trump lawyer Scott Gessler argued against the order, reports claim. Previously, the lawyer and ex-Colorado secretary of state told Newsweek, “The judge made clear that the protective order applied to everyone equally and was not directed at President Trump.”

Trump’s lawyer added, “She specifically removed some proposed language to show that she did not direct the order towards President Trump or anyone else specifically. This is nothing more than the standard order issued in similar high-profile cases.”

Castro shared his praise on X

The Never Trump Republican from Texas wrote on X, “The walls are closing in fast MF,” and linked the protective order related article. Castro has been highly critical of the former president over his alleged role in the January 6, 2021. Over Labor Day, he wrote on X, “Happy Labor Day! About to unleash legal hell on @realDonaldTrump in what he thought was secure red states… but they’re in blue circuits. Zero path to 270.”

Asked for comment, Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung wondered: “Who’s that?” while referring to Castro. Trump-appointed Judge Aileen Cannon dismissed a Florida lawsuit, and Castro blasted her, “The fact that all the Trump cases keep getting assigned to Judge Cannon cannot be a coincidence.”

The lawyer and presidential candidate fold Newsweek, ” I’m probably just going to be pigeonholed as the anti-Trump candidate, you know, the guy that’s running to try to have him declared ineligible. But another thing I’m trying to do is I’m trying to steer the debate.”

The lawsuits citing the 14th Amendment are piling up

CREW’s lawsuit is one of many citing that Trump should be kicked off the ballot over the Constitution’s 14th Amendment section 3, which prohibits any person who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” after taking an oath of office from running for office again. CREW filed in Colorado, but the filings are spreading nationwide.

Conservative law professors joined

William Baude and Michael Stokes Paulsen, conservative law professors, wrote a paper arguing that the provision is intended to “embrace a broad range of willful participatory conduct” as qualifying for having “engaged in” insurrection or rebellion.

Trump wrote against the accusations

The former president wrote, “Almost all legal scholars have voiced opinions that the 14th Amendment has no legal basis or standing relative to the upcoming 2024 Presidential Election.”

Marxists, leftists, etc.

The former president, with more than 90 charges across four indictments, shared his explanation, “Like Election Interference, it is just another ‘trick’ being used by the Radical Left Communists, Marxists, and Fascists, to again steal an Election that their candidate, the WORST, MOST INCOMPETENT, & MOST CORRUPT President in U.S. history, is incapable of winning in a Free and Fair Election. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
