Pelosi Picks Her Poison, Naming Controversial Senate Impeachment Managers

The list reads like a who’s-who of “resistance” Democrats.

The Democrats are facing an uphill battle in the coming weeks, and they know it.

Successful as they were in passing articles of impeachment against Donald Trump in the House, with its Democratic majority and all, the Senate is another matter.  The upper chamber is helmed by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell; a man not accustomed to losing and who will take his loyalty to Donald Trump to his grave.

Now, in order to put up any semblance of a respectable fight, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has chosen some of the most controversial impeachment managers possible.

Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Val Demings (D-FL), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Jason Crow (D-CO), and Sylvia Garcia (D-TX). Schiff will take on the role of lead impeachment manager.

Schiff was simply infamous during the House impeachment inquiry, seemingly adjusting the rules to his liking and holding many a secret deposition in the basement of the Capitol, far from the prying and judgmental eyes of the American people.

“Today is an important day,” said Pelosi at a Capitol Hill press conference. “The emphasis is making the strongest possible case to protect and defend our constitution, to seek the truth for the American people.”

Pelosi was lambasted by critics over the last few weeks, after withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate in order to either gain leverage on McConnell, or in hopes that some smoking gun would arise over the Christmas holiday, when a heightened sense of morality is in the air.
