Hank Greenberg: The Oath

By Hank Greenberg

WAMC published President Greenberg’s commentary on the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.

“I solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of President Donald John Trump, now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: So help me God.”

This is the oath every member of the U.S. Senate will take at the beginning of the impeachment trial of the President. It is a juror’s oath — a solemn pledge to decide a case according to the facts and law, without fear or favor
