Who is in charge of the FISA court. John Roberts I believe. Seems to me IF I’m accurate on this there are surprises coming if the Senate does not dismiss the impeachment.
Roberts is solely responsible for the FISA court. As suchh heh is a fact witness in thhe illegal activities that occured leading to the FISA court approval of spying on thhe Trump campaign and administration.
It would be a first order of business for the defense team to demand Robert’s recusal as chair of the impeachment trial. His failure to recuse himself would create a genuine constitutional crisis with no appeal other than his impeachment. That is, the Senate could refuse to allow him to sit in the trial.
Robert’s recusal would require that he resign from the Court, allowing Trump to appoint Thomas as Chief Justice. That would put an activist conservative judge in the top position on the Judicial branch of government. In point of fact this needs to happen.
For the Trump doctrine to move forward Roberts needs to come off the court and Thomas appointed as Chief Justice.
