This is Adam Schiff’s carnival of misfortune and he’s now opened a can of worms that could really, really come back to bite him and the entire Democrat Party in the backside.
The fine folks at American Thinker always put out thought-provoking work and this one caught my eye, so I wanted to share it with you.
They point out that Adam Schiff inadvertently dragged Chief Justice John Roberts into the impeachment fiasco when Schiff called his (dud) witness Fiona Hill to testify.
Let’s face it, Dems have no real hope of removing President Trump from office but thanks to Hill’s testimony, wishy-washy Chief Justice Roberts may lose his “chief justice” title.
Well, American Thinker correctly points out that Justice Roberts is the man who “owns” the FISC (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court). And now that Fiona Hill has made Roberts a “material witness” by bringing up her relationship with Christopher Steele, Roberts can’t oversee the Senate trial.
See, the Constitution clearly states the Senate trial must be overseen by the Chief Justice of the SCOTUS.
Period. No if ands or buts about it.
And here’s the kicker – a material witness cannot oversee the Senate trial.
So, because Roberts would be a material witness he would be forced to step down as the chief justice.
And, for the record, an “acting chief justice” can’t oversee the trial either. It has to be THE CHIEF JUSTICE.
They’d have to vote for a new chief justice.
The chief justice has just become a fact witness in the impeachment process because of Fiona Hill’s testimony. It is Chairman Schiff’s hearing, and his witness, and he is responsible for building the evidence to impeach President Trump. Consequently, when Fiona Hill testified about her relationship with Christopher Steele’s work product, a public connection was made between the impeachment process and the fraudulent document used in the FISC process to unmask innocent Americans and target political opponents.
Hill testified that Strobe Talbott, the former president of the Brookings Institution, shared the salacious document with her on Jan. 9, 2017. At the time, Hill was a director at Brookings, a left-of-center foreign policy think tank. She joined the Trump White House in early 2017 as senior director fore European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council.
It makes zero difference if the subject is Russia or Ukraine in the Democrat endgame to remove President Trump. The “salacious document” was just raised in the House impeachment process, and no one can un-ring that bell.
The Constitution requires specifically that the chief justice be the judge for the Senate trial. According to ABA ethics, if Chief Justice Roberts is a material witness, he cannot and should not fulfill his constitutional role and must step aside. He will have one of the biggest conflicts of interest in American history.
The Constitution does not say “acting” chief justice, so if he must recuse himself and another justice legally and ethically steps into the impeachment proceedings, that justice must become the chief justice. If the replacement justice does not become the legal chief justice, then the Senate trial is fatally flawed from the opening gavel. [American Thinker]
So, with all the other doom and gloom questions and circumstances Pelosi has to face right now does she want to roll the dice and see Roberts removed as chief justice and vote on a new leader, who would likely be Clarence Thomas?
