Collins told Politico she was “stunned” by Nadler’s comments, and confirmed to the outlet that she wrote a note that made its way to Roberts after a tense back and forth between Nadler and White House Chief Counsel Pat Cipollone.“It reminded me that if we were in a normal debate in the Senate, that the rule would be invoked to strike the words of the senator for impugning another senator,” she told Politico. “So, I did write a note raising the issue of whether there’d been a violation of the rules.”Collins said she gave the note to the secretary for the majority, Laura Dove, and “shortly thereafter, the chief justice did admonish both sides. And I was glad that he did.”

If you lose Susan…
Congressman Jerry Nadler’s rant turned off a lot of people, including Senator Susan Collins.
According to news reports, Senator Collins was so angry that she contacted Chief Justice Roberts:
Nadler’s rant was totally over the top — exactly the kind of desperate remark that a fellow with a bad hand makes.
It apparently also offended Senator Lisa Murkowski.
Three days of impeachment presentations have changed nothing. Let’s hope that this whole case can be dismissed quickly so that housewives can have their soap operas back.
