Blumenthal: ‘There Was a Knot in My Stomach When the Chief Justice … Pronounced the Name, Donald J. Trump’
BLUMENTHAL: “I thought that Senator Schumer captured well the extraordinary drama of this moment. I was struck by the deep, steep sense of solemnity and there was a knot in my stomach when the Chief Justice came in to the chamber and then pronounced the name, Donald John Trump. The difference in the reference to President Trump struck me as really distinguishing this proceeding from any other. And in fact, nothing we do while we serve in the United States Senate will be more important and consequential than putting country above party in this proceeding."
