9. When the Constitution says he "presides," it doesn't mean that in ANOTHER branch, he can run

that legislative body like a JUDICIAL branch court. This is a legislative branch body holding a legislative trial. They have sole charge of their trial rules, which McConnell announced before the introduction of any amendments yesterday.

All through the days of the trial, the Chief Justice presides as a judicial witness only. That's it. That's the Constitutional separation of powers.

(The majority leader calls on the Sergeant-at-Arms to keep order.)
