You fire one group of hack writers, and the next set is even worse:
Sen. Susan Collins sent a written note early Wednesday morning during President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial minutes before Chief Justice John Roberts admonished both legal teams, a source with knowledge of the event tells CNN.It is unclear if the note from Collins, a Maine Republican, led directly to Roberts’ comments, or had specific language for him, but the note came shortly before the chief justice spoke. The note was sent as House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, a Democrat from New York, spoke and appeared to accuse senators of a “cover-up.” Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough was seen on TV cameras speaking to Roberts at 12:48 a.m. ET. It is not clear what the conversation between the two was about, but Roberts addressed the Senate at 12:55 a.m.
Such incivility! Why can’t people leave Susan Collins to be Donald Trump’s skin oranger in peace? Needless to say, Roberts is Collins’s judicial equivalent.
An under-appreciated aspect of this clusterf*ck is John Roberts solidifying his status as the blander and smarmier version of Melville Fuller https://t.co/Mf5EHgQI4o— Kevin Gannon (@TheTattooedProf) January 23, 2020
