Backstory: When Trump Called Chief Justice John Roberts A "Disaster"

Posted by: ThomasinaPaine

[Now that] President Donald Trump faces an impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate, it would mark the third time in history a U.S. Supreme Court chief justice would have to preside over the affair -- but the first time for one who has clashed openly with the very president whose fate hangs in the balance.

Trump has called Chief Justice John Roberts an "absolute disaster" and a "nightmare for conservatives."

Roberts, who is constitutionally bound to oversee impeachment trial proceedings, has publicly chided Trump for criticizing federal judges.

"We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges," he said last year in a statement.

"I don't think you feel any extra pressure because of the president's attack, but Roberts will be reinforced in his determination to uphold the ideal that he cares about," Rosen said. "He feels passionately about the need for the courts to be perceived in a nonpartisan way; he's said it ever since he was appointed as Chief Justice."
