Supreme Court justices steer clear of insurrection question in Trump ballot case
WASHINGTON — After supporters of then-President Trump stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, ominous fencing was erected to protect surrounding buildings.
One of the buildings that needed protecting was the grand marble structure across the street from the Capitol: the Supreme Court.
But during oral arguments today over Colorado’s effort to kick Trump off the Republican primary ballot, the justices asked little about a key question in the case: Was Jan. 6 an insurrection?
Ronna McDaniel, who could soon step aside as the RNC’s chairwoman, seized on the special counsel’s comments about Biden’s memory, suggesting in a statement today, as other Republicans have, that Hur’s decision not to prosecute revealed a “two-tiered justice system.”
“I don’t need anyone to remind me when he passed away,” he added.
Biden is set to deliver remarks tonight. The White House did not provide any details about the subject of his speech.
