Crew represents six Colorado voters – Republican or unaffiliated – seeking to remove Trump from ballot over Capitol attack
A watchdog group is suing Donald Trump to remove him from the 2024 presidential ballot, claiming he violated the constitution and is disqualified from holding future office. The lawsuit is one of the strongest challenges to Trump’s eligibility to seek re-election.
The former president violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, also known as the Disqualification Clause, with his involvement in the January 6 US Capitol attack. The section bars any federal or state official that has previously taken an oath from holding office after they “engaged in insurrection or rebellion.” Two prominent conservative legal scholars have authored a lengthy law review article arguing that Trump is disqualified from holding office under the 14th Amendment. Trump has dismissed attempts to remove him from the ballot as “election interference” against the long list of felony charges he faces in Georgia and in federal court for conspiring to overturn the 2020 election.

Crew, a DC-based group representing six Colorado voters, is representing six Colorado voters seeking to remove Trump from their state’s ballot in next year’s general election. Other states are bracing for similar lawsuits challenging Trump’s eligibility, including Arizona, Michigan, and New Hampshire. The US supreme court is expected to weigh in soon on whether Trump is eligible.
