Chief Justice John Roberts swears in senators for Trump impeachment trial
WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts began swearing in the nation’s senators for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump on Thursday afternoon.
After being sworn in himself as presiding judge for the trial by the Senate’s president pro tempore, Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Roberts asked the senators to “solemnly swear” to “do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws.”
The clerk called senators up to sign the impeachment oath in groups of four. Two Republican and two Democratic senators — Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Roy Blunt, R-Mo., Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. — escorted the chief justice to the chamber.
