According to a report from Fox News, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has indicated he has no desire in presiding over the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump -- leaving the door open for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to oversee the proceedings.

As the Fox report notes, "Politico reported on Tuesday that Chief Justice John Roberts 'wants no further part' in overseeing the politically charged situation after he presided over the first impeachment trial of Trump less than one year ago."

Should Roberts demur since he has other business to attend to during the court's current session, that would leave who presides up in the air, but the Constitution provides a roadmap.

"The Constitution says that in impeachments for presidents, the chief justice of the Supreme Court is the presiding officer. For lesser impeachments, the presiding officer has been the same as for other Senate business — either the vice president or a senator. The Constitution is not clear on who should preside over impeachments for former presidents." Fox is reporting. "If Roberts does not preside over a Senate trial, Harris would likely have the choice of whether to preside herself."

Should Harris decline, the next in line would be Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), who is the longest-serving Democrat.

Speaking of Fox news - flogging a dead horse...

peaking on her Fox Business show this Tuesday morning, host Maria Bartiromo took an opportunity to float a baseless conspiracy theory that claims left-wing activists “infiltrated” groups who gathered at the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6.

Bartiromo cited a recent news story about a possible plot by QAnon adherents to pose as National Guard troops in order to infiltrate Joe Biden’s upcoming inauguration. According to Bartiromo, the news is comparable to rumors that claim there were left-wing groups participating the riots at the Capitol who were disguised as Trump supporters.

“Well, security in the nation’s capital is at an unprecedented level this morning ahead of the inauguration tomorrow,” she said. “A new report says that some far-right protesters have discussed posing as members of the National Guard to infiltrate the inauguration — the way Democrats infiltrated two weeks ago and put on MAGA clothing.”

Just days after the riots at the Capitol, the FBI said there was no evidence that individuals associated with “antifa” or left-wing groups disguised themselves as Trump supporters in order to stoke violence.

Qanon nutter news.

In a previously unreported interaction, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) agreed with a 2018 Facebook comment that the deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was actually a “false flag” planned event.

In a separate Facebook post in 2018, Greene also claimed: “I am told that Nancy Pelosi tells Hillary Clinton several times a month that ‘we need another school shooting’ in order to persuade the public to want strict gun control.”

trumpettes aren't the brightest are they.

A new arrest today — a woman with a bullhorn at the Capitol turns out to be a business owner in Beverly Hills, CA who confirmed her attendance by tweet, posted video of herself, and gave a 2h interview about her participation to the Beverly Hills Courier.

The interview she gave - her 15 mins of fame

Two other residents of Beverly Hills (according to CBS LA) were also arrested today for unlawful entry into the Capitol; the couple, delightfully named GOLD and STRAND, gave an interview and an photograph to the Washington Post.

Who was it predicting an oval rook created at Mar-a-Lago for his new empire...

According to a WP reporter
Excerpt from Trump's farewell speech, as released by the White House:
"Now, as I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at Noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning."
