It's Chief Justice Roberts' chance to be apolitical and impartial: Democrats need to make him do it

Senate Republicans are making it very clear: the John Bolton bombshell that Donald Trump personally told him he was withholding congressionally mandated funds for Ukraine for his own political gain is nothing new. They knew it all already and it doesn't make a difference, so what? So there's no reason at all they need to hear directly from Bolton. There's one person though, that shouldn't be thinking «so what»: Chief Justice John Roberts. After all, he is the chief justice of the United States. He is supposed to be the one guy ultimately in charge of the rule of law for the whole land. He, as law professors Neal K. Katyal and Joshua A. Geltzer and former Republican Rep. Mickey Edwards argue, is the one person who could go over the Republicans' heads and order subpoenas from Bolton or any other witness who should testify. That's if Roberts doesn't want to go down in history as the chief justice who presided over the biggest sham of an impeachment trial for the most criminal president the nation's ever had. House impeachment managers need to put him to that test.

Some House Democrats push for Bolton to testify in House as Senate Republicans keep pushing cover-up

House Democrats have been reluctant to call former national security adviser John Bolton to testify in recent weeks, but that may be changing. Bolton wrote in his forthcoming book that Donald Trump explicitly told him that the hold on military aid to Ukraine was connected to Trump’s push for Ukraine to investigate his political opponents, but most Senate Republicans sound as committed as ever to covering up for Trump. The House Intelligence Committee had asked Bolton to testify in November, but after he refused to do so without a court battle and the House sent impeachment articles to the Senate, House Democrats argued that the question of Bolton’s testimony was now in the Senate’s hands for the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. Now, though, Mother Jones reports that “several House Democrats on Monday initiated talks within their caucus about taking the dramatic step of subpoenaing him or once again requesting that he testify before a House committee, according to multiple Democratic sources.”

Impeachment trial resumes with more of Trump's lie-and-attack defense: Live coverage #2

White House counsel Pat Cipollone, Trump personal lawyer Jay Sekulow, and their whole crew are back to continue the opening arguments in the impeachment defense of Donald Trump. They gave a brief preview on Saturday, which was exactly what you’d expect: lies and attacks. They resume in the wake of reports that former national security adviser John Bolton’s book recounts a conversation with Donald Trump in which Trump explicitly tied military aid to Ukraine investigating his political opponents—exactly what Trump was impeached for—but it’s unlikely that will change the basic lie-and-attack strategy.

That’s because he knows as well as anybody Trump did it, it was a crime, and can’t be defended. “Process” is all this scoundrel has got.

Mad skills: Top 10 offensive players in Super Bowl

Super Bowl LIV has been billed as a battle between Kansas City’s pass-happy offense and the 49ers’ stout defense. But both teams are filled with talent at skill positions on offense. Although there is no debate about the best offensive player in the game, the next several spots are up for grabs.  Top 10 defensive players in Super Bowl Both teams ranked in the top-five in scoring this season, with the 49ers second and the Chiefs fifth. They went about it in different ways, too. Only three teams attempted fewer passes than San Francisco; only five ran the ball less than Kansas City. In ranking the top 10 offensive players in the Super Bowl, I focused on those playing at the highest level now. I took into account stats, unique skill sets, and how their coaches may deploy them.  1. Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs, QB (Round 1, 2017) The obvious choice. The reigning MVP battled through a knee injury but still threw for 26 touchdowns against only five interceptions. In the playoffs, the NFL's most talented passer has eigh
