Question for Chief Justice Roberts. Will you allow a trial you are presiding over to proceed without any certainty on evidence being introduced, no witness or documents allowed by the prosecutors that runs after the majority of Americans have gone to sleep? If so, why?

yes, he will, because that's what republicans do. this is who they are, quit asking them to be good people they aren't.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
The answer is yes, in part bc he has very little authority to do anything about it.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Under Justice John G. Roberts (@JohnRoberts_CJ) , we either keep our democracy or lose our democracy. This is his call.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
If McConnell is allowed to get away with this travesty, we, the American people should declare a National Strike and take to the streets.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is our nation’s one person who embodies the concept of “Justice” in America. There is vital US history now resting on his shoulders, and America and the world is watching!
 
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He ruled 5-4 to gut the Voting Rights Act and for Citizens United. He is a member of the the team.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Millions of Americans are asleep perpetually... Many are ignorant, many more are burned out and confused 🤷🏼‍♂️. We are left to fight the battle alone and worse against the ignorant Trumpers!!! Yet if ever there was a battle worthy of fighting this is it. Time is NOW!
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Well, we have to remember that the Supreme Court DID give an election to Bush. So my confidence is not high that this SC Justice will stay fair and impartial either. It’s really sickening to think that corruption in our government goes that far up, isn’t it? #NotMyPresident
 
In reply to @joelockhart
I have zero faith in Roberts.
 
He gutted the Voting Rights Act so I'm sure he'll have no problem with this.
 
So, Justice Roberts has a day job at the Supreme Court.
What happens to him? Sleep deprived justice at the SC, I don’t so. Do you think he is going to allow these ridicules, insane, and old age unfriendly hour to stand. I doubt he will.
 
When does the public protest begin over Mitch's gaming this process?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Does Roberts want to sit there for 12 hours then get up early the next morning to preside over SCOTUS? Has #SenatorKangeroo aka #MoscowMitch discussed this with Roberts?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
I fantasize perhaps Roberts has a greater sense of Justice than McConnell and would rather not have has integrity ground to dust. Prosecutors should force him on record to accede or deny each injustice McConnell presents. Give history a clear sense of the current political decay.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Joe, and if Roberts let’s this trial proceed w/out witnesses and evidence; what does that say about our Supreme Court? Furthermore, what does it say about upholding our Constitution and if it holds any weight or value?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Senate sets the impeachment proceeding. @GOP should keep in mind: 1. 69% want witnesses 2. Election will also decide fate of #MoscowMitch
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He will allow it, and say this is really the business of the legislative (elected) branch, and cite originalism.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Doubtful that Chief Justice Roberts wants as his legacy having silently presided over the biggest sham trial in history, one that enabled a lawless president to successfully obstruct congress, decimate the separation of powers, and deliver the death blow to American democracy.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He helped Bush in Bush v Gore. He's GOP owned.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Is CJ Roberts a Republican? Because now the Rep default position is unquestioning obedience to their cult leader despite knowing that they're destroying their reputations & legacies. If Roberts doesn't want a sham, he will speak up. He may not have power but he has a voice.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
I guess we're gonna see the chief justice's true colors, real soon!
 
In reply to @joelockhart
#faux justice Roberts response:::: Why weren’t these witnesses call during the house investigation where the constitution requires the questioning to be handled?
 
Constitution gives Chief Justice the authority to preside over trial. It doesn’t say anything about Senate Maj Leader setting the rules. Do the right thing, Mr Chief Justice. #SCOTUS #JohnRoberts
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Also CJ Roberts, how effective will you be if you get home at 3am and have to report to your day job at 9 the next morning?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
I believe he will seems non-confrontational and owned by the establishment. He thought corporations = people and the voting rights act was no longer necessary. .
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Can Dems move for a mistrial?
 
Democracy hangs in the balance but so does the Supreme Court of the USA will Roberts allow all of it to go down the toilet🐀🐀🐀🐀🐀
 
In reply to @joelockhart
CJ Roberts responds: Foremost I will remain a sought-after member of the Chevy Chase Club by bankers & lobbyists on the buffet line, in the pool & on the golf course, & my kids will be socially integrated there. Secondly, I will remain a respected member of the Natl Catholic 1/2
 
The operative question:
 
Yes, Citizens United, All the Justice money can buy Roberts
 
He's a Tea Pantie nut as well
 
In reply to @joelockhart
I have No Faith in the GOP Senators to fulfill their oath any more than Trump fulfilled his; I do believe Roberts is more honorable but he is mostly a figurehead unless he defies everyone and assumes a more active role.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Is the Federalist Society above the law.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
VERY regrettably, the answer to your latter question is, because THIS is John Roberts: twitter.com/spk4whatsright…
 
In reply to @joelockhart
There is little Trump does better than destroy reputations of his co-conspirators and enablers.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
What kind of trial judge lets the jurors decide what evidence or witnesses are proper? The Constitutions says SCOTUS Chief “SHALL PRESIDE” #Impeachment #JohnRoberts #MidnightMitch #ImpeachmentTrial
 
Of course he will. Roberts is no better than the rest of these goons.
 
People are not sufficiently outraged by this

My GOD, this should be the hair on fire, take to the streets moment

These are the rules that end our Democracy

If people don't stand up now its OUR fault

I fear Anerica is lost
 
.@EliseStefanik impeachment rules designed to keep voters from learning what is going on. Why? He is guilty.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He’s just a figurehead. Has no say so, and can be overruled by the Senate.
 
That’s an excellent question!
 
 
In reply to @joelockhart
My additional question is - will Chief Justice Roberts get ANY sleep? Does he have a day job? Does he have the power to call this out for what it is and demand logical and fair amendments to this joke of a trial?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
His role at a Senate impeachment trial, as set forth in the USC, is limited.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Is he not a Republican? I trust no Republican and I don't care if that person bows before any altar or has a seat at the Supreme Court.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Good questions. Too bad we can't tweet CJ Roberts directly!
 
In reply to @joelockhart
I think that the presence of the Chief Justice at the trial is symbolic since the Senators can vote to over rule his decisions...
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Criminals gotta keep on committing crimes - it’s the gapingGOPhole anthem...
 
In reply to @joelockhart
That guy knows why Justice Kennedy has resigned. He probably knows what to expect if he doesn’t comply... pic.twitter.com/HZwMDIGFMG
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Before you answer this question remember you took a oath to uphold the Constitution of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA 💫 pic.twitter.com/R52SJK7IH8
 
In reply to @joelockhart
I’m sure that CJ Roberts answer is “yes, because the constitution allows the Senate to set the rules.” The People have become sheep and slaves to their party.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Even moot court back in his law school days allowed for such evidentiary practices.
 
 
I have confidence in Chief Justice Roberts’ oversight of jurisprudence.
I think if he has leanings they would be called ideological moreso than political. Also I bet my paycheck he will apply the Constitution to his every action and politics be damned.
 
Let’s pray he will actually SHOW INTEGRITY and demand respect for the justice system We also need @NewYorkStateAG @TishJames @SDNYnews waiting in wings to indict the multiple corrupt republicans including trump THEY have enough TODAY
 
To protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. bit.ly/30q5skJ
 
 
Apparently so ..... Roberts name forever tied to this sham #TrumpsRemovalTrial
 
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Will you be a party to a Kangaroo Court by presiding over one?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
As much as MOST of the public is concerned, the answers we would expect a Chief Justice to give to these questions would erase all doubt we have about Moscow Mitch's attempt to hide all facts...but Chief Justice Roberts will unfortunately never here the questions!
 
In reply to @joelockhart
because I am Moscow Mitch's lap dog. Woof.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Great question! What's going on?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He will... because it’s a MOCK trial🤯👎 I’ve been calling it a mock trial since the beginning. If the Democrats really cared about justice (which I see no evidence that they do) they’d boycott this monstrosity.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He works for Trump. If he proves this, our nation has been forever changed and will never be the same. Watch.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Because it’s a political trial with no legal remedy.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Let’s stay WOKE through all of it.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
If they had enough evidence to impeach, then let them present it. If not...why are we here?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
My question too....
 
In reply to @joelockhart
What say you Chief Justice?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
A strict constructionist would Preside. What will the history books write about Roberts? Ceremonial presider over a kangaroo court, or faithful steward of the founders’ original intent? #preside
 
In reply to @joelockhart
If so, in what sense are you presiding?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He will because we’re fucked
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Chief Justice Roberts, can demand a fair trial, or be complicit in destroying justice in America. If he doesn’t have the courage to stand up for fairness... he should recuse himself. #StopTheMadness
 
In reply to @joelockhart
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Trump=Hoax. Stop McConnell Cover Up! We need witnesses, documents and full public access. #Impeachment. #ImpeachmentHoax #ImpeachedForever #25thAmendmentNow #MidnightMitch
 
In reply to @joelockhart
imagine that! The Chief Justice of the United States of America presiding over a trial that allows neither witnesses nor evidence! America, under Trump, has fallen so far!
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Americans don't ever claim to have the greatest country in the world, because it ain't so! Just look at your scotus, potus and GOP, and tell me otherwise!
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Been wondering why nobody is questioning Robert's role. First statement should include a section saying the future and reliability of the Supreme Court is at stake here .
 
In reply to @joelockhart
You might get no answer...
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He will. Hes a republican. Its a cult. Its how they roll.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
All of the evidence was to be presented in the House, they had none so...
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He was probably threatened. Ffs, this is a trans national crime syndicate masquerading as our govt
 
In reply to @joelockhart
So now you want to tell him what to do!
 
In reply to @joelockhart
He’s in on the cover up
 
In reply to @joelockhart
How is he going to handle lying?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
That would be a huge stain on his legacy.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Because he’s 80% partisan hack.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Because he’s a Republican protecting another “republican” and that’s what matters. Sadly as conservative as he is, someone like Gorsuch would probably be more fair given his strict interpretations of the law.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Yes. He rigged citizens united, lied during his confirmation and is a reliable conservative vote
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Unfortunately, the judge in an impeachment trial is almost powerless. He cannot dictate witnesses or rule on evidence. And if the Senate doesn't like what he says they can simply overrule him. Those are the rules of the Senate trial. Not very fair are they?
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Think he just has to preside over what they decide.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Tired I'm telling everybody this, but @ him if you want him to know what you tweeted. @JohnRoberts_CJ
 
In reply to @joelockhart
How far along is your cranial-rectal inversion? Bc you’re not seeing what is plainly in front of you.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
I hear you. We all want to believe in the one good Republican who’s going to stand against the tide of hate and graft and vitriol; the literal Good Samaritan. It’s a good fairytale. Let’s talk reality in which they must hang together for surely they will hang apart.
 
In reply to @joelockhart
Stop Trump’s COUP against our democracy.
 
 
In reply to @joelockhart
We will be judging @JohnRoberts_CJ to see his rules for an #ImpartialJustice Is he compromised, as well?
