It was ruled today that Don McGahn, the former White House counsel, needs to testify in the impeachment inquiry. Like most things, I am guessing that this will probably be appealed, and could end up at the Supreme Court. Talking to someone about this, they claimed that, because Chief Justice John Roberts will oversee the trial in the Senate after the House of Representatives votes to impeach Trump, he could not legally vote on whether McGahn needs to testify or not and would have to recuse himself.

Is this true? Would John Roberts need to recuse himself from ruling on whether a witness needs to testify in the House impeachment inquiry?
