The Supreme Court is going to play a key role in the resolution of the impeachment witch hunt.
But one Justice will play a special role.
And Donald Trump was red with rage with what this Supreme Court Justice said about impeachment.
Chief Justice John Roberts will preside over the Senate impeachment trial.
It will be up to Roberts to issue rulings that shape the contours of that proceeding.
And Roberts just proved he was biased against the President in his annual message when Roberts attacked the spread of so-called “fake news.”
Chief Justice John Roberts — who’s on the verge of an extraordinarily high-profile balancing act presiding over the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump — issued a warning on Tuesday about the dangers of misinformation in the internet era.
“In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public’s need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital,” Roberts declared in his annual New Year’s Eve message summing up the work of the federal judiciary.
Roberts was not explicit about whether his call for increased civics education was intended as a rebuke of Trump, although some quickly read it that way. Trump has been widely criticized for repeating false information released online and for retweeting messages posted by conspiracy theorists and racists.
The view of Roberts’ message as a critique of the president was also reinforced by the fact that the two men have clashed publicly over a topic related to the chief justice’s year-end report: Trump’s tendency to label adverse court rulings he and his administration face as the work of judges doing the political bidding of previous, Democratic presidents.
It was impossible to read Roberts comments as anything other than a continuation of the so-called “mainstream” media’s lie that Donald Trump is using conspiracy theories and hoaxes to discredit the Democrats legitimate impeachment inquiry.
This is leading to worries among the President and his supporters that Roberts will be no impartial judge at a Senate trial.
Roberts will try to rig the impeachment trial against the President with biased rulings.
Fortunately these rulings are not final and 51 Republican Senators can vote to override Roberts most egregious decisions.
