Chief Justice Roberts replaced by Sen. Leahy as impeachment overseer

Former President Donald Trump, Congress and the entire country is currently venturing into uncharted territory as the U.S. Senate prepares to hold an impeachment trial of a private U.S. citizen.

According to the Washington Examiner, in normal times, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts would preside over the impeachment trial of a U.S. president, but given that Trump is out of office, the torch has been passed to Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), as his position of president pro tempore means he’s next in line for the job. 

Roberts bowed out of the duties to preside over the trial and it’s not surprising, given the gravity of the situation — it’s likely the last thing he wants any part of, especially given that he’s already presided over a Trump impeachment trial once in his career.

In another Washington Examiner report, there’s already major pushback on the entire idea of attempting to try a former president, with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) sending shockwaves through Washington D.C. after delivering a firey argument on the Senate floor Tuesday in which he suggested that the entire idea is nothing more than a Democrat-led sham.

“This impeachment is nothing more than a partisan exercise designed to further divide the country. Democrats claim to want unify the country but impeaching a former president, a private citizen, is the antithesis of unity,” Paul tweeted on Tuesday.

In a vote that took place after his speech, 45 Republican senators voted to say that the upcoming impeachment trial is unconstitutional, which means that if they hold true to that, there’s literally no chance of Democrats securing a highly-desired conviction.

Because of that, it also means that instead of using their newfound, total control of the U.S. government to pass legislation and help the people they represent — especially as millions struggle through the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic — they’ll instead waste millions of taxpayer dollars and unnecessary time on something that will never come to fruition.

According to the Courier-Journal, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) joined those 45 senators in saying that the impeachment trial would be unconstitutional, which answered many questions from reporters over the past week whether or not the GOP leader was favoring a conviction or an acquittal.

      1. Agree On This:

        1. IMPEACHMENT ACTIONS HAS STARTED ALONG WITH SOME OTHER ACTIONS THAT COULD BE USED AGAINST THE DEMO AND THE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE TRYING TO SCREW OUR NATION. THE FASTER WE GET THE CURRENT PEOPLE OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE THE BETTER.

      2. We know this and it worries many, however, with Jesus we have more power than all of them put together, and they are going to be sorry when Jesus exercises His power over them.

      3. It’s only “DOA” as long as WE THE PEOPLE continue to remain the SILENT MAJORITY!

        SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

    2. I AGREE, And the men and women in the House of Representatives that are pushing this, should be charged with Treason. They are supposed to Oppose the constitution of the United States, not defy it. And SCROUS is useless to our Constitution. They are a lazy bunch of old and also should be tried for Treason.

    3. OK, enough with a Crazy Joe, we gave him 2 weeks and he is about ready to TOTALLY DESTROY the USA, are you HAPPY DEMWITTS, with HIS PRESIDENTIAL “DICTATES”? I think we have seen just about ENOUGH OF THI DICTATOR!

    4. Sure would be nice if we the people could just remove all the dems and some republicans from the senate, house and congress. We certainly don’t need them. Fauchi needs to be in prison for helping the Chinese develop the virus. He gets $400,000 for being a no nothing moron. Who ok’ed that I wonder.

      CAN SAVE US. CHINA STARTED WAR
      TAKE AMERICA BACK
      CLEAR OUT CONGRESS

  1. If Chief Justice Roberts is not presiding over the impeachment it is no longer an impeachment but a persecutions of a private citizen !!!

    1. this is a total SHAM now. a total waste of taxpayers money and if the democrats and Biden continue with this, they need to be impeached themselves for wasteful spending of taxpayers money or treason. they just don’t want this man to be able to run again.

      1. They DO NOT CARE about WASTING our hard earned dollars. They are the washington ELITE…. To heck with the voters…. But they can sure vote THEMSELVES a RAISE in PAY!!!!!!!!

    2. That is why Chief Justice Roberts isn’t presiding he’s been through the first witch hunt that failed, but this one doesn’t even come close to meeting constitutional guidelines. He knows as do we all that this is a personal vendetta with Pelosi against Trump. You’re right the Senate cannot try a private citizen they are not the judicial branch, only the Supreme Court could try and convict a citizen.

    1. I loathe Democrats! That said, at least Roberts has enough common sense to keep away from something that is RadioActive.

    2. If Criminal Joe gets Impeached, then Kamaaaaala takes over, or if she has him tossed because of his health, Kamaaaaala takes over, but if that happens, then Kamaaaaala would have to be Impeached as well, then that Mouth on the Floor would take over, Impeach it as well, then it’s lapdog, Chuky takes place, Impeach him too…

    3. You obviously aren’t paying any attention to what they said above Robert is a Republican and sided and is inclusive with the rest of the 45 Republicans in saying this is a sham! He is not paid off by the Democrats he is standing with the Republicans in the Senate. Read more than once if you can’t comprehend what was written above.

      1. Roberts did not go along with it because he knew he couldn’t legally perform as Justice. He said so, and refused to put himself in such a precocious position. His problem was that he made it quite visible that he was on the leftist side by voting against the last five decisions the Supreme Court decided against Trump. Thus he was only acting as a Conservative until his true colors were needed.

    4. Wow,what anger. Sad. The government can not impeach a private citizen . President Trump lives rent freein the democrats head. They are so afraid he’ll run in 2024 and win if the cheating is stopped. biden, lower case, is not legal

    5. Justice Roberts is a COWARD afraid of not doing obamas bidding. He will never do it because of a past transgression will be revealed by obamas mainstream media. It was reported that obama had HIS FBI not only investigate our President Trump but all Republicans in government so he would have something of which to hold over their heads. They are doing it now with Jim Jordan & Hawley accusing them of fake charges so minuscule compared to their own evil backgrounds.

  2. I am deeply saddened by the vindictive actions of the Democrats with another impeachment charade. We citizens are not seeing unifying actions by the new president and Congress. We have had enough of the authoritative people who act like they know so much more than their constituents. Listen to the public. We did not vote for the irresponsible actions you are taking.

  3. Term Limits would get rid of all these idiots. Just think of the day we would not need to see that face of Nancy.
    I hope I live that long to see her go down in flames. How does she continue to get elected? Are the people that vote in San Fran that uninformed or just dumb.

    1. How does Nancy keep getting elected? probably the same way Biden was elected, she has a stake in those voting machines, this explains why she keeps getting elected, even though she doesn’t help the people in her district, she is one evil thing, not sure what.

      1. pelosi s the devil. anti christ thats who this disgraceful woman is.remover her republicans now impeach her and shumer.now.

      2. She has so much dirt on her people! They are scared to death she will reveal their sins! She is a bully boss lady with no soul. Government just gets dirtier by the day! They are fighting ego’s in a divorce of party. We are the children being left to pick up the pieces. They will steal everything from us. This will get much worse, while so called leaders try to prove who is right? What a very sad time for bjour country. May the Lord have mercy on us!

    2. Paula, there will be NO more elections…The Democrats are seeing to that with a new bill H1 that will totally do away with elections in the USA

    3. I do not believe they are uninformed or dumb. I believe they simply do not care, as long as the government freebies keep rolling in.
      Liberal Dictionary
      Government freebie – A legal bribe.
      Bipartisan support – Just shut your mouth and agree with me.
      Truth – Anything that supports Liberalism.
      Lie – Anything that opposes Liberalism.
      U.S. Constitution – A nuisance document to be totally ignored.
      Election – A dog and pony show to let the people think they actually decide who is in Congress or the White House.

  4. THEY JUST CAN’T HELP THEM SELFS TO DO WHATS RIGHT. THEY HAVE SUCH HATE FOR TRUMP BECAUSE HE WAS THE FIRST PRESIDENT WHO KEPT HIS WORD IN OFFICE, THEY HAVE MANUFACTURED A CHARGE WHILE HE WAS PRESIDENT OF INCITEMENT TOTALLY DISREGARDING THE SCOTUS DECISION IN 1969 WITH THE BRANDENBERG TEST. TRUMPS SPEECH DOESN’T MEET THE TIME,PLACE, AND MANNER TEST OR THE LEGAL STANDARD UNDER BRANDENBERG. SO IT WAS A MUTE ITEM THEN BUT THE DEMOCRATS THINK THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH WHAT THEY WANT. ALSO THE RIOT WAS PRE-PLANNED BY ANTIFA AND BLM AND STARTED AT THE CAPITOL BEFORE TRUMP EVEN STARTED HIS SPEECH. SO HOW COULD HE ON GENERAL LOOKS CAUSE SOMETHING THAT WAS ALREADY GOING? ALSO WHY HASN’T JADE SLACKER OF CNN BEEN ARRESTTED AS SHE WAS BRAGGING ON THE TV THEY PLANNED IT AND “WE DID IT”? YET SHE IS STILL RUNNING FREE AND SPOUTING BULL WHILE ANYONE WITH, FOR, OR EVN LEAN TOWARD TRUMP IS BEING ARRESTED.

    1. You are absolutely correct Clyde Smith watching the news in the riots in Seattle, Washington Antifa and BLM had a big or huge sign that said, WE DO NOT WANT BIDEN GET RID OF HIM. THEY PLANNED IT ALONG WITH THE HELP OF THE LYING MEDIA. THE MEDIA SHOULD BE ARRESTED ALL OF THEM AND SENT TO PRISON FOR TREASON.

  5. How much clearer must it get that Nasty Nancy and he gang of criminals are taking total control of are country, they all ready fixed it where are votes mean nothing and removing all TRUMPS progress to make are lives/country better but will soon destroy America, all for their own wealth/power. They have created road blocks so we can’t stop anything their doing short or a civil war, which I for see coming……

  6. I second the motion, she has to go down, I hope I see it, Biden ( I refuse to address him as president) why isnt he and his son on trial for treason, what country are we living in that elects a traitor and forgives his son.

    what good his the supreme court if they do not take action against the traitors, and the double faced pelosi and hillary.. somebody answer this question

    1. The Supreme Court does not have authority to take action on its own. Its purpose is to hear appeals of cases already decided in lower courts, then determine if those verdicts were in compliance with the U.S. Constitution.

  7. A cleansing of our complete government needs to happen. We have allowed a bunch of crooks, and now Biden, to take over our country. The military headed ny George Washington helped us gain independence from tyranny in the past and it is now time to do the same from these crooks. DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION, I PLEDGED THAT BACK IN 1969 AND BECAM A DAV. I’LL DEFEND IT NOW!

  8. A president MUST be tried with the Chief Justice in charge. Since the Chief Justice is not in charge because Trump is no longer in office, it follows that any trial is an illegal sham and only being done because of the democrat’s, especially Pelosi, hate of him. They should all be impeached or recalled because of their actions.

  9. There only trying to impeach TRUMP because I believe TRUMP is still in and they know it! Why would the military still be in DC till the end of MARCH? Funny how TRUMP left on AF1 from DC and The puke BODUM had to fly private jet in for inauguration! Think about that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. THIS IMPEACHMENT AND THE NEXT ONE IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND THE PEOPLE THAT ARE DOING THIS IS IN TROUBLE>:
    THE PEOPLE THAT PAYS YOUR CHECKS ARE SUING YOU PERSONALLY YOUR
    CONGRESS PEOPLE STARTING WITH> PELOSI >SCHUMER>AND I WILL PUT
    THE OTHER NAMES ON THE SUIT PAPERS WHEN THEY ARE FINISHED>:
    EACH PERSON WILL BE SUED FOR (1) ONE BILLION DOLLARS>

  11. I wish, hope and pray that something, somehow happens that completely obliterates these chowder heads and exposes ALL of their fraud, and vindicates Mr. D. J. T.
    This crap has gone long enough, and enough is enough.
    They got to that kid from Texas who was in the Capital Building. He’s singing their song for them. For what? So he can have a nice life after betraying those of us who KNOW WITHOUT a DOUBT that the Dems used lies, murder, arson, theft, fraud, blackmail, and physical threat and harm. To win POWER.
    What a disgraceful bunch of WINDBAGS!!

  12. We have crooked, criminal and unruly government in America and they all need to be recalled. This is war and their lies will take them down. They are acting like LUCIFER, AND GOD THREW HIM OUT OF PARADISE. WHEN THE BALLS OF FIRE START DROPPING FROM HEAVEN THEY WILL NOT KNO WHERE TO HIDE. JESUS DID NOT DIE IN VAIN FOR THIS ! THEY ALL WILL BE REBUKED BY GOD. WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY, AMERICA, IS NOT A GODLY THING, THIS IS SATAN’S WAY TO ACT. THEY DO NOT LIKE AMERICA SO THEY NEED TO BE RECALLED. AMERICA NEEDS PEOPLE WHO ARE AMERICANS TO RUN AND LEAD OUR COUNTRY. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LIVE HERE AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN THROW ALL OF THEM OUT.

  13. TRUMP WILL NEVER RETIRE HE IS ONE THAT NEVER GIVE UP ! HE HELPED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND ALL THAT LIVE HERE IN AMERICA. DO NOT GO MAKING FALSE REMARKS ABOUT HIM RETIRING CAUSE TRUMP IS NOT A QUITTER, HE IS A WORKING MAN NOT ONE WHO JUST MOVES HIS MOUTH FOR NOTHING LIKE THIS SENATOR THAT SAID, HE WOULD RETIRE BY THEN. GOD BLESS DONALD J. TRUMP HE IS THE BEST PRESIDENT AMERICA HAS EVER HAD AND NO ONE CAN TAKE WHAT HE DID AWAY FROM HIM, HE LOVES AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HE HELPED TO HAVE A BETTER LIFE.. WE ARE NOT RESPONSBILE FOR THE WORLD, TRUMP WAS HIRED TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NOT THE WORLD’S PRESIDENT. THE WORLD KNOWS THAT BUT WHAT WE NOW HAVE IN OUR GOVERNMENT DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING THAT IS GOOD FOR OUR COUNTRY. MONEY IS WHAT THEY WANT AND THAT IS ALL THEY ARE IN OFFICE FOR. DAMNED CROOKED, LYING, MANIPULATIVE, COWARDS AND CRIMINALS THEY KNOW THAT TRUMP WAS GOING TO UNCOVER THEM AND THEY WERE SHAKING AT THEIR KNEES.

  14. Two things the Alinsky Elitists are attempting to accomplish.
    1 Take away the impact of democratic voting by cheating thus robbing the vast majority of citizens of the only true power they’ll ever have. Mission accomplished..

    2 First they impeached Trump a second time branding him with the label of ONLY PRESIDENT IMPEACHED TWICE. This will deter some voters from voting for Trump again , considering him “damaged goods”-but why the vindictive act: of conviction on the impeachment charge–knowing full well that the attempt, is not only unconstitutional, but will fail? Easy! Since the people’s voting privilege has been negated by cheating, popular opinion is irrelevant and, in any case, can be negated by fake opinion polls. The goal, hence, is to intimidate any would-be future Trumps that you’re dealing with some pretty mean motherf——. who will not just kill you after cutting off your fingers one by one but will toss the rest of your family off a building and feed the remains to the swine.

  15. These democrats want to talk about unitity, but they needs to stop being fools and acting like kids in a candy store when they don’t get wht what they want they pitch a little fit.

  16. What a bunch of stupid ignoramouses. Putin’s pawns at work. The UnAmerican Digest leading the charge in effort to destroy our democracy. Whew! The smell is atrocious.

  17. And remember, President Trump did Not take one Thin dime of salary as he worked tirelessly for We the People!!!

    1. G. Sgt.- do not forget all the work his grown kids did for us also and did not take “one dime”. I am sure not one Democrap even gave them a “thank you” for all they did. Donald is a true patriot, a loving stand up loyal American. In the prophesies I heard from our Almighty God’s prophets, starting in 2007 with Prophet Kim Clement, God Called President Trump “MY David”, a man after MY own heart”, Trump will be a 2 term President and I have loved America and the people from it’s beginning”. I can not speak for our Heavenly Father, but I know HE planned Donald Trump to be our President for 8 years and NO ONE will ever stop our God’s will. The democrap’s have not unified anything, they have created more problems and no one knows where their treasonous actions will end. I am asking anyone that reads this to pray with me for President Trumps saftey and ask our wonderful God to bless America again. God bless you and ours!!!!!!

      1. I am with you Karol. Love Hugs Prayers for you and your post. Many prayers for President Trump, his immediate family, and his political family also. Trump will lead this Country to greatness again. He has already done that for four years. God will intervene (Divine Intervention) I pray for that every day.

    1. Impeachment is fine, but first it must be determined who arranged the attack on the Capital; Pelosi, Schumer, or Biden.

  18. All above posts are correct. Ask Piglosi WHY she didn’t secure the capitol building! Because she knew what was going to happen, she hired antifa and blm operatives to do it! So she could nail President Trump! Now she wants the national guard to protect her because she knows antifa and blm will come to collect!
