BREAKING: Lauren Boebert seeks to remove Colorado Sec of State Jena Griswold from office after failed bid to pull Trump from ballot

"All legal options available to us will be considered, including a formal recall effort."

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold suffered an embarrassing loss on Monday when the Supreme Court of the United States unanimously reversed her decision, and the decision of the Colorado Supreme Court, to remove President Donald Trump from the state's primary ballot.

In response, Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert announced her intention to remove Griswold from office. 

"We are actively building a grassroots coalition of Coloradans and Americans to begin the process of holding you accountable for your attack on our elections and the voting rights of millions of Coloradans," Boebert said. "All legal options available to us will be considered, including a formal recall effort."

The letter was signed by Boebert, Colorado Republican Party Chairman Dave Willians, Vice Chair Hope Scheppelman, and Anna Ferguson who serves as the Colorado Republican Party Secretary.

"With today's unanimous decision by the Supreme Court of the United States to keep President Donald J. Trump on the Colorado primary ballot, it is now even more clear Coloradans should have zero faith in you to adequately protect their right to vote and oversee elections in the state of Colorado. Your attempt to disenfranchise millions of Coloradans and prevent them from exercising their right to cast a vote in support of President Donald J. Trump is a stain on our Republic and an outright embarrassment to Coloradans and Americans," they wrote.

Griswold launched the first attempt in the nation to pull Trump from the ballot but was soon followed by other states such as Maine and Indiana. The Supreme Court's ruling reverses not only Colorado's ruling, but strikes any plan to remove a candidate from the ballot in any state. The Court ruled that only Congress can have the power to remove a candidate from seeking office under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, known as the insurrection clause.

After Griswold brought her case to a Colorado court, that court ruled that Trump could not be removed from the ballot, but that he was guilty of insurrection. Trump's attorneys appealed the ruling to the Colorado Supreme Court, saying that though the verdict was in their favor, the former president was not guilty of an insurrection.

Griswold appealed as well, and the Colorado high court ruled in her favor. The case was immediately appealed by Trump's attorneys and was heard on an emergency basis by the DC court in February. The ruling, delivered on Monday, was unanimous. However, four of the left-leaning justices on the bench said that Trump was guilty of "oathbreaking insurrection." Many leftists were outraged by the decision.

Griswold concurred with those justices, saying that she was "disappointed" that decision. "I am disappointed in the US Supreme Court’s decision stripping states of the authority to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment for federal candidates. Colorado should be able to bar oath-breaking insurrections from our ballot," she said.
