More interesting than the sham legal theory behind the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision is the organization behind it called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). As the organization boasts on its website, CREW is responsible, along with a handful of law firms, for bringing the cases in question to the Colorado Supreme Court. CREW might be familiar to Revolver readers for the fact that notorious Democrat lawfare hatchet man Norm Eisen co-founded the organization in 2003 and ran it for most of Trump’s presidency, during which time it generated nearly 200 lawsuits against the Trump administration.
Norm Eisen drafted ten articles of impeachment against Trump before Trump’s phone call with Zelensky even took place and went on to serve as special counsel in the first impeachment proceedings against Trump. Eisen worked with his colleague on a lawsuit claiming Trump violated the emoluments clause before he was even sworn in. Incidentally, his colleague Joseph Sellers represented Congressman Bennie Thompson in his January 6 lawsuit against Trump, which later became the basis for the second impeachment against Trump and the January 6 Committee report. Indeed, it would hardly be an exaggeration to say that Norm Eisen has been a key architect of nearly every attempt to delegitimize, impeach, censor, sue, and remove the democratically elected 45th President of the United States—all in the name of democracy, of course. Years ago, we first brought Norm Eisen’s name to national attention in the context of his work on color revolutions overseas and the fact that he was deploying the same tools as a lawfare operative to undermine Trump that he would use in the State Department to undermine foreign leaders deemed to be adversaries of the United States…
On the whole, we see a number of dark trends converge in CREW’s role in excluding Trump from the Colorado ballot—a decision sure to be overturned but nonetheless portentous in terms of the overall sense of where things are going. Of course, the fact that someone with an advisory position in the Department of Homeland Security runs a group attempting to remove the frontrunner for 2024 from the 2024 ballot, all in the name of democracy, is not exactly optimal. It is never a great sign when the national security bureaucracy under the control of a nation’s leader is used to attack the frontrunner from another party. And the relationship between the DHS and the head of CREW, together with Norm Eisen’s deep ties with DHS bigwigs, underscores just how deeply interconnected the regime’s tentacles are and suggests a powerful integration between the national security bureaucracies and the more political lawfare organizations in the regime’s full-spectrum efforts to destroy Trump.
It has been clear for a long time now that this regime will do anything to stop another Trump presidency and to prevent the American people from ever meddling in their own elections again. The stakes couldn’t be higher.
