WATCH: Justice Roberts was NOT Amused by Question from Elizabeth Warren

John Roberts

Chief Justice John Roberts seemed visibly annoyed when Elizabeth Warren asked a question during President Trump’s impeachment trial yesterday that referenced him and questioned the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and Constitution in relation to the proceedings.

According to Senate rules, the chief justice must read aloud the questions posed by senators to the impeachment managers and the president’s counsel. Roberts recognized Warren, who then submitted her written question to a clerk.

Roberts read her question from the card — which referenced him:

 

“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?” Roberts read from the card before him.

Shortly thereafter, Warren found herself in hot water, even by members of the liberal media, *GASP*, for her awkward attempt to take a jab at Republicans while asking Justice Roberts presiding over the impeachment trial to be critical of himself.

You can watch the entire awkward moment above.

    Democrats have a visceral abhorrence to saying that this is a “Republic.” It must have something to do with their hate for their opponent party’s name based on that provision in the Constitution.
    I wanted to shout at pencilneck; “This is not a democracy, you ‘Democrat.'” Thank God for the electoral college.

    1) How dumb this Senator was to even ask such a question. 2) Why was the video edited to not have the question read, but all the House Managers answer was heard….. Sounds to me like pushing the Democrats policy and belief system on us….

    Funny how @RepAdamSchiff talks about a fair trail. He’s the fraud corrupt Congressman that never allowed Republican witnesses or the Presidents Lawyers to ask questions of his liars gossip mongers called witnesses. But hell what do you expect of a dictator of the Intelligence committee.

    she will rue the day she said this when a case comes up in the supreme court and they think he will side with on something important to them

    At the age of 64 I can remember the day’s when the needs of the country were placed higher than partisan politics. This was particularly evident when our nation was faced with a looming war. I’m not saying that Republicans are without guilt in the confrontations in the Senate or the House we see today. However I do side with Republicans on the nonsense of this impeachment trail. So much precious time and tax dollars have been waisted when the true needs of our nation are put on indefinite hold. Citizens are not being represented and are left in want with unmet needs.

    OK – next month the Dems will find another fake impeachment reason. This will go on even after President Trump is elected in Oct. They have nothing but their fake media. When is the DOJ going to release all it’s findings of Hillary’s fake paper which the Russians helped creat. What is the hold up – it must be released which will stop the Dems trying to overturn our goverment.
