Pelosi Names Seven Impeachment Managers for Senate Impeachment Trial

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced on Wednesday that there will be seven impeachment managers to present the case against the president in the Senate’s impeachment trial.

Among those who will be the impeachment managers include House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

Additionally, the other House members include:

  • Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.)
  • Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.)
  • Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-Texas)
  • Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.)
  • Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.)

Watch part of the press conference below:

Trump responded to the news of the impeachment managers via Twitter, as he called it “another Con Job by the Do Nothing Democrats.”

“Here we go again, another Con Job by the Do Nothing Democrats,” he wrote, adding, “All of this work was supposed to be done by the House, not the Senate!”

The House will vote Wednesday on a resolution to send the impeachment articles to the Senate — the articles were passed on Dec. 18 in the House. The two articles charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The secretary of the Senate is expected to receive the articles around 5 p.m. on Wednesday. As Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Tuesday, the Republican-controlled Senate expects to start the trial on Jan. 21.

Of course, Schiff and Nadler were named. They hate being out of the spotlight for long. Will Schiff perform another skit for this event? “Protect and defend our constitution “ says Pelosi? That ship has sailed. But President Trump hasn’t allowed this hoax to stop him from his goals. Stock market hit 29000! Unbelievable. Phase One with China was signed today.

You knew she would put Shifty Schiff & Nasty Nads on the list. She doesn’t want them testifying. Does she think the American people are stupid and we don’t see the game she/they play? #FacePalm
