Former President Donald Trump scored a huge victory recently.

The Michigan Supreme Court has said that it will not hear an appeal from four votes in the state that sought to bar the former president.

Reuters reported that the voters argued in their request for an appeal that Trump could not serve as president after what took place on 1/6/2021; however, the court strongly disagreed.

“We are not persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed by this Court,” the justices said in a brief order.

Former President Trump responded to the decision stating that the Michigan Supreme Court has “strongly and rightfully denied” the appeal.
The former President pulled no punches condemning the decision of the Colorado court recently stating that he will be vindicated by the Supreme Court of the United States.

A lawyer for the group of voters said that the decision was “disappointing” but noted the court is going to let plead the same case for the general.

“The Court’s decision is disappointing but we will continue, at a later stage, to seek to uphold this critical constitutional provision designed to protect our republic,” the attorney, Mark Brewer, said in a statement.

The Colorado ruling is on pause until at least January 4, 2024 to give the Supreme Court of the United States time to get involved.

“We are also cognizant that we travel in uncharted territory, and that this case presents several issues of first impression,” the court’s majority opinion notes.

“If review is sought in the Supreme Court before the stay expires, it shall remain in place, and the Secretary will continue to be required to include President Trump’s name on the 2024 presidential primary ballot until the receipt of any order or mandate from the Supreme Court,” the ruling read.
