Pelosi on Wednesday selected seven House members to serve as impeachment managers in the Senate trial, including Schiff (D-Calif.) and Nadler (D-N.Y.).
The group will argue that Trump abused the power of his office, obstructed Congress and should be removed from office. Countering that argument will be Trump’s defense team, which is expected to be led by White House counsel Pat Cipollone.
Besides Schiff and Nadler, Pelosi named as managers Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), Sylvia Garcia (D-Tex.), Val Demings (D-Fla.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) and Jason Crow (D-Colo.).
Of those, the one who I am most excited to see is Jeffries. He was amazing, direct, completely prepared, and succinct during the earlier House procedures.
