On Wednesday, the Minnesota Supreme Court rejected an attempt to block 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump from the primary ballot.
A bipartisan group of Minnesota voters alleged that under the 14th Amendment, which states that US officials who take an oath of office are banned from future office positions if they “engaged in insurrection,” Trump was barred from being on the primary ballot, according to CNN.
In the four-page ruling, the justices wrote, “There is no state statute that prohibits a major political party from placing on the presidential nomination primary ballot, or sending delegates to the national convention supporting, a candidate who is ineligible to hold office.”
The high court dismissed the case, but said that it wouldn’t stop the group from “bringing a petition raising their claims as to the general election.”
Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung said in a statement that the decision “is further validation of the Trump Campaign’s consistent argument that the 14th Amendment ballot challenges are nothing more than strategic, un-Constitutional attempts to interfere with the election.”
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald believes President Joe Biden’s trailing of four-time indicted former President Donald Trump in the polls shows Americans think their “leading institutions of authority are radically corrupt.”
Greenwald joined Tucker Carlson for a 27-minute interview released Tuesday night on Carlson’s eponymously-named show, Tucker on X. Around the 18-minute mark, Carlson asked Greenwald, who founded the Intercept, for his take on the New York Times/Sienna College poll released Sunday showing Biden behind Trump in five crucial battleground states.
Ep. 37 The two defining tragedies of our time — the war in Ukraine and the presidency of Joe Biden — are both finally coming to an end.

I think the most amazing thing about this, Tucker, is that if any leading American political had gotten even near the possibility of an indictment ten years ago, the prospect of them running for high office would be instantly over. And here you have Donald Trump, whose been indicted on felony charges in four different American jurisdictions… and not only has it not harmed him, it actually has helped in the polls for sure among Republican voters. His lead has expanded every time he’s indicted, but also among American independents and even groups that traditionally support Democrats almost reflexively, like black voters who … 22 percent of in this latest poll. We’ve seen similar polls saying they would vote for Trump over Biden – and 42 percent of Latinos.
He added that the polling shows “Americans have really come to the conclusion that our leading institutions of authority are radically corrupted,” ranging from media to the Department of Justice and the legal system, which he says are “aggressively politicized.”
So now Donald Trump is in a position where he is facing serious felony charges – I don’t think they’re serious in a sense that they’re real but they’re serious in a sense that he’ll go to jail – and yet his lead is expanding over Joe Biden in part because people, I think, see the injustice of it, but also everybody can just look at Joe Biden and see that he is not a person capable of even managing his own life much less the country and that there’s no cure for that.
