A judge has ruled that Trump incited insurrection, but that that does not disqualify him from the presidency. Both sides are appealing the ruling. How will this case end?

From The Hill. Former President Trump and the group of plaintiffs battling over whether the former president should be disqualified from the Colorado ballot under the 14th Amendment both appealed the case to the state’s top court Monday.
