Updates on the latest legal challenges facing Trump:

January 6 Election Interference
– Appeals filed by Trump and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the nonprofit group, challenging Colorado District Judge Sarah Wallace’s ruling that allowed Trump’s name to stay on state ballots.
– Wallace’s ruling concluded that Trump acted with specific intent to incite political violence and direct it at the Capitol to disrupt the electoral certification.
– CREW argued that Wallace’s findings were contradictory, while Trump’s lawyers appealed against her conclusion about his involvement in the Capitol riot.
– The Colorado case is likely to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, where Wallace’s findings on Trump’s role in the riot are likely to be litigated.

Georgia Election Interference
