Election Law



It’s looking more and more like Donald Trump will likely be the GOP nominee for President after historical performances in the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary.

Yet President Trump currently faces six cases by the radical Left and the Deep State. The cases range from state, federal, civil, and criminal trials. Here’s where these cases stand and what they mean for your right to vote.

  1. New York Civil Fraud Case. New York Attorney General Letitia James claims Trump inflated the value of his assets for years to secure bank loans. The trial is already finished, and the judge is expected to rule soon. If he rules against Trump, an appeal will likely push any final decision past Election Day. If Trump loses the case, he stands to also lose his real estate empire, including Trump Tower and his Mar-a-Lago estate. Either way, it’s a civil case, not criminal, so the constitutional impact on his candidacy would be minimal.

  2. Georgia Election Interference Case. Fulton County District Attorney (DA) Fani Willis has charged Trump and 18 others with scheming to illegally overthrow the 2020 election results in Georgia. Legally, this case probably has the most teeth to inflict political damage. It’s a state trial, meaning Trump would not be able to pardon himself as President if he were convicted. This is the case that produced the famous Trump mug shot. But the Left has a serious problem: DA Willis is entangled in accusations of an improper relationship with a special prosecutor whom she appointed for the case. The dynamic duo is being accused of prosecutorial misconduct, and it could torpedo their entire case. Until the accusations against Willis are untangled, the case against Trump is unlikely to go to trial before Election Day.

  3. Classified Documents Case. Special Counsel Jack Smith has accused Trump of illegally taking classified documents from the White House and storing them in his Mar-a-Lago estate. The investigation triggered an FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago, followed by wall-to-wall media coverage and outcries from conservatives. The trial is scheduled for May in front of a Florida jury, which might make it difficult for Smith to get a conviction. Regardless, any appeal would likely push a final outcome in the case well beyond Election Day.

  4. Jan. 6 Election Interference Case. Special Counsel Smith has also charged Trump in a federal election interference case stemming from the Jan. 6 investigation. Trump’s lawyers argue he has presidential immunity, and the case is on appeal to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The U.S. Supreme Court has taken a separate Jan. 6 case where the defendant is, like Trump, accused of “obstruction of an official proceeding.” If the high Court rules for the defendant, the precedent could potentially gut Jack Smith’s case against Trump.

  5. Manhattan Criminal Case. Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg charged Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records. The trial is scheduled for March but is expected to be delayed due to Trump’s primary campaign and the litany of other trials.

  6. 14th Amendment Case. Last but not least are the 14th Amendment lawsuits in more than 30 states nationwide that claim Trump is ineligible to run for President because of the “insurrection clause.” The Colorado Supreme Court is the first court to ban President Trump from the ballot. The ACLJ is representing the Colorado GOP at the U.S. Supreme Court right now in the appeal of that case. Our reply brief is due by February 5. From the very beginning, the ACLJ jumped into action to defend state Republican Parties from similar 14th Amendment lawsuits and spearheaded legal efforts that have seen major victories handed down nationwide.

Of all the cases the far Left is throwing at Trump, the 14th Amendment case at the U.S. Supreme Court is the most critical. The first five lawsuits are not slam dunks for the far Left, so they would rather remove Trump from the ballot and deny Americans the right to vote for the candidate of their choice. Thus, the ACLJ’s 14th Amendment case at the U.S. Supreme Court is crucial for the democratic process, our constitutional republic, and future candidates who wish to be on a ballot.

The far Left is attempting to pull off the most unconstitutional election plot in American history. If they are successful, the 2024 election will not be a democratic election but a predetermined selection by partisan judges and prosecutors.

That is why the ACLJ remains on the front lines to ensure that your right to vote for the candidate of your choice is preserved. Our work this week at the U.S. Supreme Court is monumental.
