The House of Representatives has delivered articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate, which is expected to begin a trial next week.
Earlier in the day, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi named seven Democratic members of Congress as the managers who will argue the case for impeachment.
Those managers brought the articles to the Senate on Wednesday evening.
“What is at stake here is the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said in a press conference announcing the managers.
Pelosi appointed Reps. Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Zoe Lofgren, Val Demings, Hakeem Jeffries, Sylvia Garcia and Jason Crow. Pelosi said Schiff will take the lead.
“The emphasis is on litigators. The emphasis is on comfort level in the courtroom. The emphasis is making the strongest possible case to protect and defend our Constitution, to seek the truth for the American people,” Pelosi said in a Wednesday press
