After the Supreme Court ruled in Trump v. Anderson, the case brought by 6 Republican and unaffiliated Colorado voters seeking to bar Trump from the ballot under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington President Noah Bookbinder released the following statement:

“While the Supreme Court allowed Donald Trump back on the ballot on technical legal grounds, this was in no way a win for Trump. The Supreme Court had the opportunity in this case to exonerate Trump, and they chose not to do so. Every court–or decision-making body–that has substantively examined the issue has determined that January 6th was an insurrection and that Donald Trump incited it. That remains true today. The Supreme Court removed an enforcement mechanism, and in letting Trump back on the ballot, they failed to meet the moment. But it is now clear that Trump led the January 6th insurrection, and it will be up to the American people to ensure accountability.”
