ORLANDO, Fla. — Saturday marks three years since people stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.


The U.S. Supreme Court made a historic announcement on Friday with sweeping implications for the 2024 election.

The justices revealed that they would hear the case of whether former President Donald Trump can be banned from the ballot in Colorado for engaging in insurrection against the United States on Jan. 6.

The justices agreed to hear arguments on Feb. 8 and suggested deciding the outcome before Super Tuesday.

Colorado’s Supreme Court banned Trump from the primary ballot, citing the 14th Amendment, which prohibits any officer of the United States who swore an oath to the Constitution and engaged in insurrection from holding office.
