WASHINGTON - Break out the umpire trope one more time: If Chief Justice John Roberts is called upon to preside over a Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, it will be the most high-profile and likely unwelcome test of his skills as neutral arbiter. Roberts steps into a precarious spot after a spat with Trump last year over the president's derogatory remarks about federal judges and sharp criticism from Democrats and Republicans in the Senate about Supreme Court rulings. It is an ill-defined role, dictated by rules and precedents developed by the Senate. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., briefly described the process Tuesday and offered a prediction. "If it were today, I don't think there's any question, it would not lead to a removal" of Trump, he told reporters. The trial would be an unfamiliar moment in the spotlight for Roberts, 64, whose evocation of the judge as impartial umpire drew praise at his 2005 confirmation hearing. His nomination by President George W. Bush capped off a career as a Republican operative in the White House, a lawyer with many appearances before the Supreme Court and an appellate judge. Trump's impeachment proceedings would be the first trial over which Roberts has presided. It provides the potential for a confrontation with a president who has already antagonized him, even as the chief justice has tried to distance himself and the court from partisan politics. "I think [the chief justice] is going to be very uncomfortable with it," said Carter Phillips, a longtime Washington lawyer who is among the most prolific practitioners before the Supreme Court. "He will look the part and will act the part, but I'm sure he'd rather not have the part." History provides only two examples of a chief justice presiding over...
