Pelosi Names Impeachment Prosecutors, Triggering Senate Trial

As expected, the group will be led by Reps. Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler

The team of House Democratic lawmakers who will act as prosecutors in the impeachment trial of President Trump was formally introduced by Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an announcement on Wednesday morning.

The speaker named seven so-called “impeachment managers” who will take up the case, outlined in the two articles of impeachment that the House passed in December, that Trump abused his power by pressuring the government of Ukraine to do him political favors while withholding U.S. security aid.

As expected, the group of managers will be led by the two House lawmakers most closely associated with impeachment: Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the House Intelligence Committee chairman who was the face of the impeachment inquiry, and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), the House Judiciary Committee chairman whose panel wrote the articles.
