Trump’s Attorney Confirms Trump Ballot Concerns

Trump will never let them see him sweat…

Former President Trump’s attorney Alina Habba confirmed his concerns the Supreme Court will ultimately uphold Colorado and Maine’s decisions to boot Trump from the primary ballot.

Responding to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s recent comments about Trump’s concerns, Habba during an interview on Fox News said, “That’s a concern he’s voiced to me, he’s voiced to everybody publicly, not privately. And I can tell you that his concern is a valid one.”

“You know, Republicans are conservative, they get nervous. They unfortunately … sometimes shy away from being pro-Trump because they feel that even if the law is on our side, they are swayed much like the Democratic side, right?” Habba told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum. “So they’re trying so hard to look neutral that sometimes, they make the wrong call.”

Last month, Colorado and Maine sparked swift backlash after ruling Trump is ineligible to be on the primary ballot under the 14th Amendment.

Trump on Wednesday appealed Colorado’s ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court, one day after he appealed Maine’s decision.

Three of the justices on the U.S. Supreme Court were appointed by Trump, a point of concern Haberman addressed last week.

“They believe, generally speaking, he and his advisers, that they will have success at the Supreme Court, but he has also voiced some concern that a court that has — he appointed three of the justices at the Supreme Court and gave the conservatives a supermajority — he is concerned that they are going to look as if they’re trying not to rule in his favor and might rule against him,” Haberman said during a CNN appearance last week.

However, both Trump and his legal team have reportedly privately voiced concerns the justices may “shy away from being pro-Trump.”

Habba on Wednesday said she encourages the justices to “really look at the law in the Constitution.”

“It’s a very clean cut,” she said. “There’s no … politics that should be involved in this. It’s just simply American, and if the justices read the law, as I do, as most Americans and attorneys do, even [Alan Dershowitz] — who’s a known liberal — it’s just a simple decision, and it should have nothing to do with if you’re Republican or Democrat.”

Dershowitz last month called Colorado’s decision “an attempt to totally manipulate an amendment that was never designed to disqualify people in a future election,” Forbes reported.

  1. NO PHUXXING WAY!!! The 14th Amendment can only be enacted by Congress. Congress cleared Trump of insurrection charges. Any elected official saying otherwise is in violation of the Constitution they swore to uphold and needs to resign.
    It is clearly plainly written. THIS INCLUDES SCOTUS. THEY MUST UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION! IF CONGRESS FELT TRUMP WAS GUILTY, WHY HASN’T HE BEEN CHARGED AND WHY HAS CONGRESS ENACTED THE 14TH? BECAUSE HE IS NOT GUILTY.

  2. If the Supreme court does not vote in respect of the Constitution – uphold the constitution as written, then we no longer have a third office to respect the constitution and America is in the toilet?
    We need to bring back Civics in out primary Schools!
