Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andy McCarthy issued an ominous warning about former President Donald Trump’s case in Colorado and Maine.
McCarthy warned the U.S. will turn into “complete chaos” ahead of the 2024 presidential election if the U.S. Supreme Court fails to deliberate on the cases in Colorado and Maine. The two states ruled to remove Trump from the primary ballot citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which states no individual should hold office if they “have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”
“Well, I think they have to take the case, Martha [MacCallum] and I say that understanding that they are very reluctant to wade into the politics of the 2024 election. But you will truly have chaos, and maybe two layers of chaos, if this case isn’t grappled with soon by the one court that can sort of put an end to all the questions,” McCarthy said during a Thursday segment on Fox News.
McCarthy said the Supreme Court needs to settle “two layers” of the issue to answer whether Trump can be removed from the ballot in the primary and general elections.
