The Trump campaign pulled back the veil of alleged corruption in ongoing cases across the nation that are attempting to strip President Donald Trump off the 2024 ballot in states like Minnesota and Colorado.

Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung explained in an official statement, “The cheat is on as the Democrats’ STEAL Curtain continues to rise across the country in yet another frivolous lawsuit seeking to deprive the American public of a free and democratic election.”

In a lengthy email, the campaign laid out the trail of dark money connected to organizations like “Free Speech for People,” which has been linked to money from George Soros.

In their compilation, they included excerpts from multiple articles looking into the extensive history of Soros’s financial contributions to organizations participating in bringing Fourteenth Amendment challenges against Trump’s standing to hold office.

In Minnesota, a case brought by “Free Speech for People,” has hit the Minnesota Supreme Court, based on the accusation that the president engaged in an “insurrection” and therefore cannot hold office, The Hill reported.

For reference, the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution stipulates that anyone who has engaged in inciting an “insurrection” or “rebellion” cannot hold public office.

President Trump is also facing a similar case in Colorado, where the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) are arguing that Trump should be removed from the state’s ballot based on the Fourteenth Amendment, as well.

Cheung argued, “In Minnesota, the case is being funded by the grossly misnamed radical leftist Democrat group ‘Free Speech For People,’ which, like the Colorado case sponsor C.R.E.W., is fueled by contributions from George Soros’s Tides Foundation.”

He added, “Using lawfare to attack President Trump’s ballot access is Election Interference, and only happening because President Trump continues to poll so well against Crooked Joe Biden in traditionally blue states.”

In the campaign’s email, they cited an article from the New York Post that claimed that George Soros had funneled more than $16 million to the groups responsible for pro-Palestine protests through the Tides Center. The Tides Center has also reportedly been linked to Black Lives Matter.
