It was decision day for Nancy Pelosi.
The Speaker of the House finally had to make her move.
And Nancy Pelosi made the one decision about impeachment that will come back to haunt her.
House Democrats finally bit the bullet and held a vote to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate and name the managers that will try the case.
Pelosi named a team of seven House Managers headlined by House Intelligence Committee and House Judiciary Committee Chairmen Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has appointed a team of seven House Democrats to serve as prosecutors in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
She named Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), Jason Crow (D-Colo.), Val Demings (D-Fla.) and Sylvia Garcia (D-Texas) as managers.
“What is at stake here is the Constitution of the United States. This is what an impeachment is about,” Pelosi said, flanked by her new managers, whose names had remained strictly secret.
The House will vote on a resolution later Wednesday sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate, the last major House act before the trial can begin.
WATCH Pelosi’s rambling press conference below:
Nadler and Schiff performed poorly as the chairs who led the House impeachment inquiry.
The managers are supposed to be the House’s top “prosecutors” for this case.
Critics contend if Schiff and Nadler are the best Pelosi has then impeachment is an even bigger waste of time than most Americans figured.
On some levels it is fitting that Schiff and Nadler helped drive this process and now they will be forced to stand in the Senate when the impeachment witch hoax ends in failure after the acquittal vote.
