On Wednesday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced who she selected to be the “impeachment managers” once she submits the articles of impeachment to the Senate.
The selections were none other than far-left Democrats House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, along with Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Val Demings (D-FL), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Jason Crow (D-CO), and Sylvia Garcia (D-TX). Schiff will be the leader out of the group.
“Today is an important day,” Pelosi said during a press conference. “The emphasis is making the strongest possible case to protect and defend our constitution, to seek the truth for the American people.”
