Trump blasts 'slime balls' who sued to keep him off Colorado ballot

Former President Trump isn’t too pleased with a lawsuit filed earlier this week to try and keep him off the ballot in 2024 in Colorado.

The lawsuit was filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) Wednesday. It tries to use the 14th Amendment to say the former president is disqualified for actions allegedly taken during the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

“The group suing me in Colorado to ridiculously try and Unconstitutionally keep me off the ballot (I am leading against DeSanctimonious by almost 50 points, and beating Crooked Joe, BIG!), is TRUMP DERANGED ‘CREW,’ composed of many slime balls & groups like Norm Eisen through Brookings or Just Security, Andrew Weissmann, Joyce Vance, et al.” Trump said on his Truth Social platform. 

Trump also noted in another post that CREW had previously brought a lawsuit against him a few years ago accusing him of violating the emoluments clause. He also accused the group of working with Special Counsel Jack Smith, who has indicted Trump in two cases, one related to efforts to overturn the 2020 election, the other related to document handling.

“Crew also sued me on emoluments at my recently sold, and very beautiful, D.C. hotel, and LOST BIG,” Trump said in the other post. “These are bad Radical Left people and groups that use the Injustice Department as though it were their own. 

“They will have major liability for what they are doing to America!” Trump continued. “It is, working with Deranged Jack Smith & others, ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before. MAGA!”
