Soon the Senate will have the second impeachment trial for Donald Trump.
But Donald Trump is already getting bad news.
And that’s because Donald Trump was just served up this curveball on impeachment by the Supreme Court.
Typically, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court would preside over a presidential impeachment trial in the Senate.
But with Trump already out of office before the trial has even started – whether or not Chief Justice John Roberts will preside over it is in question.
Reports have come out that Roberts will refuse to oversee the trial and the authority would then be given to newly-minted Vice President Kamala Harris.
POLITICO Playbook reports:
JOHN ROBERTS WANTS OUT OF JURY DUTY: Multiple Republican and Democratic sources close to the impeachment trial negotiations tell us that Supreme Court Chief Justice JOHN ROBERTS is looking to avoid presiding over impeachment proceedings.
We’re hearing that Roberts, who for years has sought to keep the courts apolitical, was not happy he became a top target of the Left during Trump’s first impeachment trial. “He wants no further part of this,” one of our Hill sources says. A spokesperson for the Chief Justice declined to comment when our Josh Gerstein reached out.
The Constitution delegates the Chief Justice to oversee impeachments of presidents, but this time around Trump will be an ex-president. That’s why lawmakers and aides were talking through the weekend about two other figures who historically have presided over lower-level impeachments: the vice president and the longest-serving member of the chamber. But would KAMALA HARRIS really want to do this in her first week on the job? If not, Sen. PATRICK LEAHY (D-Vt.) could be the guy.
Donald Trump faced a historic level of backlash in the 2016 campaign before he ever set foot in the White House.
The media, the Deep State, Hollywood, and academia – in a historic move – created a united front of hatred toward a sitting president never seen before in the history of the country.
And now after Trump has left office, reports would seem to point to the ever-radical Vice President Harris to preside over another unconstitutional impeachment trial in the Senate.
The 75,000,000 Americans who voted for Trump can see a hatchet job a mile away, and the idea of the establishment stacking the deck against Trump from the beginning, validated.
