A Colorado court has ruled that former President USA Donald Trump was involved in the storming of the Capitol, but he did not violate the oath of office, which means his candidacy may be allowed to participate in the upcoming presidential election. This is reported by Associated Press.
Judge Sarah Wallace concluded that the former president “incited the insurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021, and rejected lawyers’ arguments that Trump was engaging in “free speech.” Despite this, she failed to disqualify the presidential candidate and ruled that Trump could remain on the presidential primary ballot.
In turn, Trump campaign spokesman Stephen Chung reacted negatively to the court’s decision and called it “another nail in the coffin of anti-American problems with the ballot.”
According to the agency, similar decisions had previously been made by courts in several other states, all of which kept Trump on the ballot.
Previously it became known about the growth of support for Trump among voters in the United States. According to The New York Times, he was able to get ahead of the current head of state Joe Biden by the amount of voter support in five of the most important six states – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania.
In 2020, Trump lost the US presidential election to Joe Biden. After this, in protest, on January 6, 2021, his supporters stormed the Capitol.https://musicnewsfirst.com/
