Trump takes legal action against the exclusion of primary voting in a US state…

The former president's lawyers formally object to the decision of the supreme election supervisor. Accordingly, the Republican has disqualified himself from the office of president due to his conduct in connection with the storming of the US Capitol in 2021.

Former US President Donald Trump is legally defending himself against the decision taken by the state of Maine to exclude him from the local primaries to run for the presidency of the Republican Party. Trump's lawyers filed a formal challenge to the state's top supervisor of elections' decision in a Maine court on Tuesday.

Accordingly, the Republican has disqualified himself from the office of president due to his conduct in connection with the storming of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Among other things, it says that Secretary of State Sheena Bellows, who is in charge of elections, is biased and has no legal authority to make such a decision. The decision is also based on various errors and is arbitrary.

Bellows announced her decision publicly last week, but postponed it pending Trump's objection. So nothing has been finalized yet.

Participation in the primary elections.

Trump supporters violently stormed the Capitol Building in Washington on January 6, 2021. Congress met there to formally affirm Democrat Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election.

Trump faces charges of attempting to rig the election due to his actions surrounding the vote.

Trump's electoral disqualification fails in Michigan and Minnesota

Based on these events, several prosecutors in various US states have been trying for some time to remove Trump's name from the ballots for the presidential primaries. Anyone who wants to run for president of the Republican or Democratic Party of the United States must first win the party's internal primaries. In states like Michigan and Minnesota, prosecutors failed in their attempts to remove Trump from the primary race. Decisions are still pending in other states. However, decisions were taken against Trump in Maine and Colorado.

In Colorado, the state's highest court ruled a few days ago that the Republican was unsuitable for the office of president due to his role in the storming of the Capitol and therefore could not participate in the primaries. Shortly thereafter, in Maine, Bellows came to the same conclusion. Trump's lawyers have now filed a formal objection to their decision.

In Colorado, the American Center for Law and Justice had already filed an appeal against the court's decision there on behalf of the state's Republican Party. More objections are expected in Colorado from Trump himself. This means that the Supreme Court will ultimately have a say in the matter.
