Pelosi signs impeachment against Trump, trial starts next week
Seven House Democrats will serve as the "managers" in the trial, which will possibly start on Tuesday.
The House voted on Wednesday to send the impeachment articles against President Donald Trump to the Senate, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the seven House Democrats who will serve as the "managers" in the trial, which will possibly start on Tuesday.
The two articles, charging the president with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, were signed by Pelosi on Wednesday evening and then hand-delivered to the Senate in a procession through the Capitol that was led by the House clerk and sergeant-at-arms and included the House managers.
The measure passed 228-193, with one Democrat opposing the resolution, Republican Collin Peterson of Minnesota, who also voted last month against both articles of impeachment.
The House managers who will prosecute the case against the president in the Senate are: Reps. Adam Schiff of California, who will be the lead manager; Jerry Nadler of New York; Hakeem Jeffries of New York; Jason Crow of Colorado; Zoe Lofgren of California; Val Demings of Florida; and Sylvia Garcia of Texas.
