Sen. Warren Targets John Roberts In Question: Has Trial Contributed To Loss Of Legitimacy Of Chief Justice?

|

Lead impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) responds after Sen. Elizabeth Warren asks a question that takes aim at Chief Justice John Roberts, who is presiding over the Senate's impeachment trial.

Warren's question: "At a time when large majorities of Americans have lost faith in government, does the fact that the chief justice is presiding over an impeachment trial in which Republican senators have thus far refused to allow witnesses or evidence contribute to the loss of legitimacy of the chief justice, the Supreme Court, and the Constitution?"

"It diminishes the power of this example to the rest of the world if we cannot have a fair trial in the face of this kind of presidential misconduct," Schiff answered. "This is the remedy for presidential abuse."
