Chief Justice Roberts tells Schumer he won’t break ties in impeachment trial

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts told Sen. Schumer on Friday that he would not act as a tie-breaker if the Senate becomes deadlocked with a 50-50 split during President Trump’s impeachment trial. This came after Schumer asked Roberts if he was aware that Chief Justice Samuel Chase cast tie-breaking votes during President Andrew Johnson’s impeachment trial.
