Close your eyes, click your heels, and say go protest at the Capitol. That’s what the Colorado Supreme Court used as proof of an Insurrection. Not really, but awful close. Here’s their evidence.

Professor Peter Simi, who argued that the former president used “coded language” with his supporters prior to the January 6 Capitol Hill riot, which would therefore qualify as “insurrection.”

Trump’s lawyers asserted that the former president never encouraged his supporters to enter the Capitol on January 6, adding he asked them to peacefully and patriotically let their voices be heard. Trumps coded message is below.

“President Trump also sent tweets throughout the day instructing his supporters to ‘remain peaceful’ and ‘[s]tay peaceful,’ and he released a video telling the crowd ‘to go home now,’” it added. “Calling for peace, patriotism, respect for law and order, and directing the Secretary of Defense to do what needs to be done to protect the American people is in no way inciting or participating in an ‘insurrection.’”
