Chief Justice John Roberts is far from the impartial savior Democrats are hoping he'll be: PBS host

During an MSNBC panel discussion Sunday evening, Alexander Heffner, PBS host of “The Open Mind,” cautioned against putting faith in Chief Justice John Roberts.

In an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton, Heffner outlined why Roberts’ impartiality isn’t exactly what Democrats think it is.

“But I’m tired of hearing about Chief Justice Roberts impartiality, this idea that he’s some kind of paragon of constitutional order,” Heffner said. “The proof is in the pudding. The reality is this Supreme Court had an opportunity to review the cases about whether the public should have access to Trump’s business and personal tax returns, whether the public should have the testimony of [John] Bolton and company.”

He noted that in those cases, the High Court refused to give a decision in a timely manner. If they had released a decision on whether the White House can ignore a subpoena, Roberts likely wouldn’t be put in this position.

3. You may be right, and therefore it follows that

we should not depend on any individual to come to our aid or bail us out. Only path to success is work hard on convincing every person you know why it is important to vote for our nominee.

6. I don't know of anyone who thinks he'll be a Democratic savior.

I do know that he pretty clearly cares about the legacy of "his" court, so he's also not likely to do anything overtly precedent-setting as far as Trump is concerned.

8. He's sure as hell not going to want to go down in

history as the C.J, who let an impeached President be removed from office.

7. This is the moment...

that Republicans have been wanking about for years in the back rooms of the heritage foundation. Roberts was 'groomed' for this. I doubt he'll let them down.
