Pelosi Appoints Steele Dossier Truthers As Anti-Trump Impeachment Managers

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the seven House managers who will transmit the articles to the Senate for what she called “an impeachment that will last forever.” Pelosi named Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who previously claimed he had incriminating evidence of Trump’s collusion with Russia, as the lead manager.
The following six Democrats were also named as impeachment managers: Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo., and Rep. Sylvia Garcia, D-Texas. Six of the seven managers publicly supported impeachment before the so-called whistleblower ever came forward.
“Today, I have the privilege of naming the Managers of the impeachment trial of the President,” Pelosi tweeted.

The role of impeachment managers is similar to that of a prosecutor. They present the case for impeachment to the Senate during the trial to determine whether or not to remove the president from office. The problem with Pelosi’s picks is that they are such highly partisan figures, it is unlikely they will be able to persuade moderate Republican senators.
