28. He leaned into the podium and directly addressed both House Managers and WH Defense.

He said that they must remember the historical decorum called for by the chamber they are in.

Is that clearer?

Nadler had had it, and finally told them off about their being judged right along with this president.

I was pissed that he admonished both equally when Republicans have dumped more dirt in that chamber than ANY one. So I mocked him.

I can't stand John Roberts, I've made that well known in the past. If it weren't for him and Bush, this country wouldn't even be in this cesspool of corruption.

I know we wouldn’t be in half of the world of shit we’re in without roberts’ court. And I am rather pissed he was moved to chime in this late, and not earlier for the litany of smears and lies coming from the right.

I didn’t think he’d come in and interfere, say, by calling for dismissal like giuliani was claiming on fox a couple weeks ago - I thought that was absurd. Decorum paddling, though? That just threw me about his role.

I must comment that the Van Hollen amendment at the end forcing the republicans to vote against affirming that the presiding officer, CJ, can make final vote on the question of calling witnesses is breathtaking next to Roberts’ interjection.

He's not constitutionally to impose judicial rules in any congressional chamber. So that's what presiding is. Just judicial witness of a legislative body's trial.

78. Yup.

I'm sure he's seen how far the country has fallen. And he became a part of it. He has an opportunity to redeem himself.

69. Schiff - just caught the GOP on how the Senate is not an "appellate court"

but they are a "trial".

And arguing that why they would be opposed is because they don't want Roberts to refuse to have Hunter Biden testify.

83. Are Bernie and Elizabeth sitting next to each other ???

Bernie stands every time he votes.

The camera moves before the lady next to him votes.

I can't see her face.

84. They must be missing someone to finish the vote.



ETA - they are apparently handing out copies of the Resolution that they were voting on. Sneaky since Turtle kept making changes.

104. I noticed that courtroom cliche play out in real life this evening.

As the night wore on, Jay Sekulow embodied it.

"When you don't have the facts, argue the law.
When you don't have the law, argue the facts.
When you don't have either the law OR the facts, POUND THE TABLE!"

And so help me, that's what Jay Sekulow DID, tonight! You could almost see the steam rising out of his widdle ears! OH the drama! OH the indignation! OH the histrionics! OH boy!

And former Florida GOP Rep. David Jolly, an MSNBC staple, came right out and said Cipollone LIED. "He LIED." Which is accurate. Claiming the CONS were shut out of the high-security room down in the basement - when THREE committees were called in, to review classified documents, INCLUDING about 100 GOP members of those three committees. That was a flat-out LIE! Isn't there some penalty for lying during these things, especially when you're supposedly a credible legal expert?

And now, I also notice, since the proceedings have just adjourned, folks heading out are walking briskly down the down-escalator, not just standing and riding down.
