The recent decision by the Colorado Supreme Court to disqualify former President Donald Trump from the 2024 ballot has brought attention to the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which led the effort. Surprisingly, board chairs of CREW, Beth Nolan and Wayne Jordan, have a history of substantial donations to President Biden’s campaign, raising questions about the group’s impartiality.

CREW, a self-identified “nonpartisan” watchdog group, filed a lawsuit against Trump on behalf of six voters, leading to the recent Colorado Supreme Court decision disqualifying Trump from the 2024 ballot. The court invoked the 14th Amendment, citing Trump’s alleged role in the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021.

Beth Nolan, the chair of CREW’s board, donated $2,800 to Biden’s campaign and $3,000 to the Biden Victory Fund in 2020. Similarly, CREW’s vice chair, Wayne Jordan, contributed $300,000 to the Biden Victory Fund. These substantial donations raise concerns about the group’s claim to nonpartisanship.

Lack of Response

Despite the significant questions surrounding CREW’s impartiality, neither Beth Nolan, Wayne Jordan, nor CREW has responded to inquiries from Fox News Digital. The silence from the group’s leadership adds to the uncertainty regarding its role and motivations.

CREW’s Partisan History

Despite claiming to be “nonpartisan,” CREW has a history tied to left-leaning figures. Founder David Brock, who is associated with liberal groups, previously chaired CREW. Documents indicate strategies to target Trump during his presidency, casting doubt on the group’s nonpartisan status.

Financial Support from Soros

CREW has received substantial funding from major Democratic donors, including George Soros. Between 2017 and 2021, two Soros-funded Open Society Foundations nonprofits provided $2.85 million to CREW. The financial backing from Soros adds another layer to the group’s potential bias.

CREW’s involvement with the six voters was pivotal in the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to disqualify Trump from the 2024 ballot. The court argued that, under the 14th Amendment, Trump is “disqualified” due to his alleged role in the Capitol riots.

Legal Justification

The court’s decision relied on the 14th Amendment, which prohibits individuals who have engaged in insurrection or rebellion from holding public office. According to the justices, Trump’s alleged actions on January 6, 2021, violated this constitutional clause.
