House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Wednesday that Reps. Jerrold Nadler and Adam Schiff will be among the impeachment managers who will press the Houses case against President Trump during a Senate trial.
Today is the day that we name the managers, we go to the floor to pass the resolution to transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate, she said.
Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and Schiff, the head of the House Intelligence Committee, played crucial roles in the Houses impeachment inquiry into Trump last fall.
Others include Reps. Zoe Lofgren, Hakeem Jeffries and Val Demmings, Jason Crow, Sylvia Garcia.
The House managers are expected to personally deliver the articles to the Senate later Wednesday.
White House counsel Pat Cipollone and Jay Sekulow, Trumps personal lawyer, will lead Trumps defense.
Pelosis announcement comes just hours before the House will vote on releasing the two articles of impeachment for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress to Senate so a trial can get underway.
The speaker has been holding up delivering the articles since the House voted on Dec. 18 to pressure Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to release the framework of how a trial would be conducted, call witnesses to testify and not hold a vote to dismiss.

Oh, how momentous!
Holding impeachment hostage is over? Thank Heaven for small favors!
While it will pass - it would be funny as all get out if it didn’t.
What could go wrong??? LOL
I wonder if they are sworn in, and under oath. Doubt it.
Rep Collins will crush them. Nancy has told Nadler and Schiff “You got us here, and you are on your own there in the Senate.”
You could hear a pin drop among the reporters as Pelosi and Nadler spoke and walked away.
Schiff should be a witness!
Schitt Show II.
Its the “Punch and Judy Show”
Money is changing hands as we speak. It’s the big Soros pay day for a lot of people.
Prog/libs are deliriously happy. Pelosi’s managers are s-o-o-o-o diverse (sob).
The vile, demonic Botoxian has picked two of it’s best demonic underlings to try to do the work of Satan. Praying that that Reaper takes out all three and sends em back to their Big Daddy.
The House will appoint the managers and pass a resolution today funding them.
Schiff as both manager AND witness will be interesting.
Well at least she picked a couple of honest non biased folks. /S Phatman and Bugeye.
They belong in jail.
Will get very interesting if both of the managers are witnesses who are forced to plead the 5th.
Who needs Russia when you have demonicRATS?
A turd impeachment is still... a turd impeachment.
Democrats sat on it nearly a month before bothering to send it to the Senate.
Big winner is Cocaine Mitch.
