Here is Chief Justice Robert’s report: static.politico.com/5c/8a/f77f9a7f…

The judiciary is about establishing truth⤵️

Trump’s presidency is about obscuring and hiding the truth.

I think this is Roberts' way of letting us know he won't preside over a sham trial.

#ImpeachedAndAfraid ?
It's the end of the year report on the judiciary.

Roberts is invested in upholding the values of the judiciary branch.

Yes, the Senators have a lot of power in how the trial is conducted, but Roberts has some weight to throw around as well . . .

In case what's really missing from your New Year's Eve is the chance to brush up on the Senate rules for Trump's impeachment trial 🤓🤓🤓 🤣

Not that Roberts can stop a sham trial if enough Senators opt for that— but there are ways he can help shine light on the truth.

Roberts is conservative, not reactionary.
Trump (a reactionary)is willing to destroy institutions.
I don't think Roberts is.
As long as we're realistic in our expectations.

Unrealistic: Expecting Roberts to engineer a conviction and removal of Trump.

Realistic: Make sure the public sees the truth.

Senators can overrule Roberts with a majority vote.
But Roberts speaks first.
Trump's presidency, like all fascist uprisings, is about obscuring the truth.
Both @TimothyDSnyder and @jasonintrator discuss this in their recent books.

The antidote is exposing the truth.
