The controversy surrounding an attempt to remove Donald Trump from the Colorado ballot in the upcoming 2024 election is only getting deeper. Investigative journalist Laura Loomer has recently uncovered connections between former United States Senator Claire McCaskill and the organization leading the charge against Trump’s eligibility.
Loomer revealed that McCaskill, who now works as an anchor for MSNBC, is a board member of the organization known as CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington). In an article by NationalFile, it was reported that CREW receives funding from the George Soros Open Society Foundation. The same article also mentioned that another member of CREW’s board is Evan McMullin, who ran as a third-party candidate during the 2016 election and was widely seen as a detractor of Trump.
To support her findings, Loomer shared a post written by McCaskill in 2019, where the former senator expressed her admiration for CREW’s work and her excitement to join their board. Loomer’s caption accompanying the post emphasized her belief that the ongoing trial in Colorado to remove Trump from the ballot is nothing more than a politically motivated ploy orchestrated by Democrat operatives who act as though they are philanthropists. Loomer asserted that this interference in the election process amounts to a serious offense.
Loomer’s tweets caught the attention of many, further shining a spotlight on the alleged corruption within CREW. She specifically called out McCaskill’s involvement as a board member and claimed that this was evidence of the group’s ulterior motives. In response, many expressed concern over the potential bias and partisanship driving the efforts to remove Trump from the ballot.
It is worth noting that McCaskill has a history of involvement in controversial matters during her time as a senator. She was a vocal supporter of the Russia Collusion theory, going so far as to accuse Trump and Putin of being the “founders of the Islamic State.” These accusations added fuel to the already contentious debate surrounding Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.
NationalFile’s report also cited records from Influence Watch, which confirmed that CREW receives funding from the George Soros Open Society Foundation. In addition, Loomer shared a video of CREW’s founder, Melanie Sloan, acknowledging the organization’s financial ties to Soros. These revelations further supported Loomer’s claims that the effort to remove Trump from the Colorado ballot had financial backing from Soros-linked organizations.
The case is currently being heard by a Colorado Judge, and a ruling is expected in the near future. However, regardless of the outcome, it is anticipated that the eligibility of Trump’s 2024 ballot will ultimately be decided by the United States Supreme Court. It is possible that SCOTUS may issue an emergency ruling shortly after hearing the case, which would expedite the process. Typically, SCOTUS takes until late May of the calendar year to announce its decisions.
As this legal battle unfolds, it is crucial to stay informed and closely monitor the developments surrounding this highly contested issue. NationalFile will continue to provide ongoing coverage, ensuring that the public remains up to date on the latest twists and turns in this critical episode of American democracy.
