Summary

But some argued, including Senate Minority Leader Charles SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerFox's Chris Wallace: 'Every side is going to come out a winner' on impeachment Attorney tells McConnell that Parnas has records 'directly relevant' to impeachment Dershowitz: Trump trial is my 'worst controversy' MORE (D-N.Y.), that Roberts could cast a tie-breaking vote, as Chief Justice Salmon Chase had done in the 1868 impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson.Murkowski’s 51st vote against the motion avoided a tie, sparing Roberts from a potentially explosive decision.Later in the proceedings, Roberts made clear his view that he lacked the power to cast votes alongside senators."I think it would be inappropriate for me, an unelected official from a different branch of government, to assert the power to change that result so that the motion would succeed,” Roberts said in response to a question from Schumer.At various points in the trial, Roberts sought to maintain decorum and cool tempers, even invoking the Senate's history and reputation.One of his first headline-grabbing moments came after a fiery exchange in the early morning hours of Jan. 23 between House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold NadlerJerrold (Jerry) Lewis NadlerTrump seizes on viral clip of Nadler giving final answer over Schiff Live coverage: Senators query impeachment managers, Trump defense Nadler floats John Kelly as potential impeachment witness MORE (D-N.Y.), one of the managers, and White House counsel Pat Cipollone.At the request of Sen. Susan CollinsSusan Margaret CollinsSenate Democrats outraise Republicans, but GOP has cash edge Senate GOP passes resolution setting up end of Trump trial Pelosi calls senators who voted against trial witnesses 'accomplices to the President's cover-up' MORE (R-Maine), Roberts admonished both sides.“It is appropriate at this point for me to admonish both the House managers and president’s counsel in equal terms to remember that they are addressing the world’s greatest deliberative body,” Roberts warned.
