Despite the fact that Democrats had been working to remove President Trump from office since the moment he got elected, and that four of his current 2020 rivals were voting to remove him from office in the Senate, ABC’s World News Tonight had an issue with Senate Republicans signing the oath of impartiality for the trial on Thursday.

As usual, their reporting began with anchor David Muir hitting the tired sensationalist buzzwords. “And we begin tonight with the solemn turn on the hill today. The Senate impeachment trial is here. And that heavy moment today when the chief justice arrived to be sworn in to preside over the impeachment trial of President Trump,” he announced.

“Chief justice John Roberts presiding, administering the oath. Every senator standing with arm raised. It was silent but for that moment they promised impartial justice. Then, signing a pledge to do the same,” he added.

The report by senior congressional correspondent Mary Bruce played up the “solemn ceremony seen just twice before in American history.” She began to set up her chide against Republicans by noting that Chief Justice John Roberts had sworn in all the senators.
