Senate Opens Impeachment Trial Against President Trump: Chief Justice John Roberts Sworn In

WASHINGTON – Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was sworn in Thursday to preside over the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Roberts, wearing his black judicial robe, was escorted into the chamber by four senators. The two Republicans were Sens. Roy Blunt of Missouri, the chairman of the Rules Committee, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee. The Democrats were Sens. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the longest-serving senator, and Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.

“Senators, I attend the Senate in conformity with your notice for the purpose of joining with you for the trial of the president of the United States," Roberts said. “I am now prepared to take the oath."

The longest-serving Republican, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, administered the oath to Roberts. "God bless you," Grassley said. "Thank you," Roberts replied.

A roll call of senators sitting at their mahogany desks was held before Roberts arrived. After he was sworn in, Roberts recited the trial oath to swear in senators, who stood at their desks and raised their right hands.

"Do you solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of Donald John Trump, president of the United States now pending, you will do impartial justice, according to the Constitution and laws, so help you God?" Roberts asked.

"I do," senators replied in unison. Senators were called in alphabetical order by their last names to sign the oath book.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., recited unanimous agreements setting deadlines for trial documents. The House has until 5 p.m. Saturday to file its trial brief, the White House until noon Monday to file its trial brief, and the House until noon Tuesday to file its rebuttal.

"The Senate sitting as court of impeachment is adjourned until Tuesday Jan. 21 at 1 p.m.," Roberts said, gaveling the session closed.

So Solemn, Nancy! "It was unusual to see that kind of ceremony and handing out the pens and smiling for a picture in this kind of situation."

Specially made pens for the signing by Nancy Pelosi

Of anyone that could be chosen to preside over the phony impeachment trial, Roberts is a traitor! Let the lies and circus begin!

I do NOT trust Roberts either! They have something on him for sure. He showed his cards with Obamacare.

ALERT! After Acquittal Schiff Urged Bolton to Submit Sworn Document of “All He Knows,” But Bolton Refused

Well, now we know that the only thing traitor John Bolton has on President Trump is some fictional stories that he cooked up to sell a book.

Well, now we know that the only thing traitor John Bolton has on President Trump is some fictional stories that he cooked up to sell a book.

How do we know?

Well, we know this because right after the impeachment acquittal in the Senate, Adam Schiff and company immediately reached out to Bolton, urging him to submit a “sworn document” of what he knows….but Bolton refused.

Look, Bolton doesn’t want to go under oath, he could get in big trouble lying on the official record. He just wanted a nice easy and clean leak in the New York Times and his Amazon pre-sale book page to get a lot of hits.

Bolton also knew if he was subpoenaed, President Trump would invoke “executive privilege” and he wouldn’t have to say anything that would get him in trouble.

What a total sham.
