ED HENRY (ANCHOR): And to Brad [Blakeman's] point, Leslie, for your side, the chief justice is presumably trying to be fair here and evenhanded. And as Sandra [Smith] said, he was referring to both sides, perhaps. But it was your side, and Jerry Nadler in particular, who was saying the president team lies, lies, lies. How do you get away with that?

LESLIE MARSHALL (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR):  Well, obviously they didn't. I mean, and I think it was —

HENRY: But they did it for hours, I guess is my point.

MARSHALL: Yeah, well, the chief justice has control, and he should have done earlier. But this reminded me of almost a father scolding children, saying this isn't a playground, take this seriously, remember your oath. And I think he did the right thing, quite frankly. And I don't think that from either side — my side, you know, especially — that that is proper. I mean, there is a certain decorum, and the American people, those who stayed up, are watching this and need to see, you know, this process in play. This is very serious, and it's not time to be name-calling. It's time to just stick to the facts. And I would say that for both sides.
