BREAKING: Michigan Judge Hands President Trump HUGE Win!

A Michigan judge has just handed President Trumphuge win!

Judge James Redford dismissed a lawsuit that sought to remove President Trump from the 2024 ballot over his alleged role in the January 6th riots.

The court ultimately ruled that this is an issue for Congress—not judges, committees, or unelected bureaucrats.

So it looks like President Trump is going to be on the ballot in Michigan, for now. The Judge left room for similar motions to be brought up again in the future.

Attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon announced: “Boom! My partners obtained yet another victory for the Trump campaign in Wayne County, MI, where the judge granted our motion for summary judgment and rejected the argument that the election officials have a right to determine 14th Amendment eligibility. Onward!”

CNN had more on the story:

The judge separately ruled that Michigan’s secretary of state doesn’t have the power under state law to determine the former president’s eligibility for office based on the 14th Amendment, which says anyone who took an oath to uphold the US Constitution is banned from office if they “engaged in insurrection.”

Simon Ateba provided a caveat to the judge’s recent ruling:

“A Michigan state judge has partially rejected an attempt to disqualify former President Donald J. Trump from running in the state’s Republican primary, ruling that the state’s elections official lacks the authority to exclude him.

HOWEVER, the judge left the possibility of a future challenge to Trump’s eligibility for the general election open, stating that the issue is not yet ripe for adjudication. That possibility is reportedly Section 3 of the 14th Amendment if convicted.”

The Associated Press explained:

Redford said deciding whether an event constituted “a rebellion or insurrection and whether or not someone participated in it” are questions best left to Congress and not “one single judicial officer.”

A judge, he wrote, “cannot in any manner or form possibly embody the represented qualities of every citizen of the nation — as does the House of Representatives and the Senate.”
