US top court agrees to hear Trump Colorado ballot appeal

The US Supreme Court agreed to consider whether Colorado can bar Donald Trump from the presidential ballot, taking up a landmark constitutional and political clash stemming from his attempt to overturn the 2020 election.
The justices will hear the case on an expedited basis, with arguments on Feb 8. They will review a Colorado Supreme Court decision that said Trump engaged in insurrection – and forfeited his right to run for president again – by trying to nullify Joe Biden’s election victory and inciting the deadly Jan 6, 2021, Capitol assault.
The clash over the Constitution’s insurrection clause promises to be a pivot point in Trump’s bid to reclaim the White House. A broad Supreme Court decision in the ex-president’s favour would end efforts around the country to remove him from the ballot. A ruling against Trump would raise new questions about the viability of his candidacy.
The party nominating contests are getting underway — Iowa caucus for Republicans is on Jan 15; New Hampshire primary on January 23.
