I’m grateful to the Chief Justice. He did a good job. His demeanor was great; he maintained his patience. I thought it was unfair of him to direct that at both sets of counsels. It felt like collective punishment for isolated guilt.

— Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), responding on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom to the mild reprimand Chief Justice Roberts gave both sides the other day during the impeachment trial when Roberts reminded everyone, after a terse exchange between Jerry Nadler and Trump’s attorneys, that “they are addressing the world’s greatest deliberative body.”
