Nancy Pelosi to name impeachment managers

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is holding a news conference at 10:00a.m. ET on to announce the House managers in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial.

Later today, the House is expected vote on a resolution naming the managers before the articles are formally sent to the Senate.

What the managers do: Impeachment managers act as prosecutors for House Democrats, and they will outline the case against President Trump during the Senate impeachment trial.

The way a Senate trial will ultimately unfold will depend on what senators can agree to and the full parameters for a trial have not yet been set. The general expectation, however, is that the House managers will have a chance to argue their case before the full Senate with the senators acting like jurors, and after that, the President’s lawyers will have an opportunity to present the defense.
