JUST IN: Supreme Court could rule on Colorado ballot case Monday

Since Colorado struck Trump's name from the ballot, other states have followed suit. 

The Supreme Court is set to issue decisions tomorrow and among those rulings could be the fate of Donald Trump and the Colorado primary ballots. The court heard the case on February 8 on an expedited basis, but a decision has not yet been issued.

When listening to oral arguments and asking questions of the petitioners, the court appeared to lean strongly in the direction of allowing Trump's name to remain on the ballot. Since Colorado struck Trump's name from the ballot, other states have followed suit. 

Monday is not scheduled as a ruling day and justices are not expected to be present in the court.

Trump praised the court after they heard oral arguments, saying "It's unfortunate that we have to go through a thing like that I consider it to be more election interference by the Democrats is what they're doing."

"So, I'll just say that in watching the Supreme Court today I thought it was very," he said, "it's a very beautiful process. I hope that democracy of this country will continue because right now we have a very, very tough situation with all of the radical left ideas, with the weaponization of politics. They weaponize it like it's never been weaponized before. It's totally illegal, but they do it anyway. And it has to stop."

The Court determined to hear the case in January when Trump appealed the Colorado Supreme Court's decision to strike him from the ballot. The petition to remove him from the ballot in the state was brought by a non-profit group in Washington, DC, that worked with local Coloradans to bring the case. 

Their plan was to strike Trump from the ballot using the clause in the 14th Amendment that states that anyone guilty of insurrection cannot serve. However, Trump has not been charged nor convicted of the crime of insurrection. The allegations are based on his perceived role in the riots and protests at the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. 

As protesters went into the Capitol Building, Trump urged them to be peaceful and disperse. The Colorado Supreme Court issued a ruling of 4-3 against the former president.
