I suspect the impeachment rules prohibit objections. I haven't watched the trial because I stomach

the lies. If objections were permitted I suspect the Republicans would have disrupted the Dems presentation like they tried to do in the House impeachment hearings. However, while Iím sure Roberts doesnít want to put his thumb on scale, the Constitution provides that the Chief Justice of SCOTUS ďpresideĒ over the trial. In my view that gives him broad authority to do what he wants. I donít practice in Federal court other than bankruptcy proceedings, but Federal judges can do pretty much whatever they want. Roberts sitting silent while Republicans spew lie after lie is disturbing. You are correct, Republican arguments over process are not disputes over the facts for a jury to determine. They are just lies that subvert the rule of law, our democracy and Roberts not correcting the record or calling out the Republicans is unforgivable. He is doing as much damage to our country as the Republicans. Roberts is as complicit as the Republicans at this point. Roberts could do so much to restore confidence in our legal system but chooses not to. If he called out the lies being told about the process the Republicans could do nothing, zero about it. Like Trump, Roberts is untouchable. Dems arenít going to agree to impeachment proceedings against him for calling out Republican lies so why he sits silent is a testament of what a coward he is.

I hate him as much as anyone, but, incredibly, hate McConnell even more. That's a whole lot of hate.

Now consider that Magats hate us as much, well thatís a whole lotta hate and spells doom for our country. Never thought I would envy Canadians.

recentmy read a post somewhere, I think on DU, from Yale psychiatrist who said when people are

removed from cultist like surroundings, when that stimulus is removed they snapped back to normal. There will be a day when Republicans look back at their actions and say what the ďFĒ was I doing. Hopefully they will be out of office or better yet behind bars. They are living in a sick, demented Fox fueled bubble of fantasy and lies. To see the likes of Senators Johnson and Graham etc. spew complete and utter nonsense and Russian propaganda and burying their noses up Trumpís ass is difficult to believe yet everyday it gets worse. This insanity must snap at some point and stoking a war with Iran may just be the last straw. Here we go again, Republicans get in trouble and they play the fear card. I donít see Americans buying the we have to fear Iran and when American serviceman start dying there is one person to blame, their messiah Trump.
