Nancy Pelosi Appoints Impeachment Managers For Trump's Senate Trial

On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has appointed a team of seven House Democrats to serve as prosecutors in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.

Pelosi named Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), Jason Crow (D-Colo.), Val Demings (D-Fla.) and Sylvia Garcia (D-Texas) as managers.

The announcement comes just before the House votes on a resolution to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate, the last major House act before the trial can begin.

Senators are expected to be sworn in this week but the trial won’t begin in earnest until Tuesday, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The announcement also comes after House Democrats released new impeachment evidence related to indicted Giuliani associate and the Ukraine shakedown.
