17. Exactly. It's not the Supreme Court's show; it's the Senate's.

The Chief Justice is there only because the Senate's rules require the CJ to be the presiding officer when a president has been impeached. Otherwise it's the president of the Senate, which is the vice president. Roberts is just a stand-in for the president of the Senate.
