House lawmakers appointed to prosecute Trump case

US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has named the lawmakers who will prosecute the impeachment case against President Donald Trump.

She appeared at a news conference with the “managers”, including Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler, heads of the House intelligence and judiciary committees.

The House will vote later on Wednesday to send the impeachment charges against Mr Trump to the Senate.

The president’s trial is expected to begin in earnest next week.

Mrs Pelosi said: “I’m very proud to present the managers who will bring the case, which we have great confidence in, in terms of impeaching the president and his removal.”

Five other managers were named at Wednesday morning’s news conference: Hakeem Jeffries of New York, Zoe Lofgren of California, Jason Crow of Colorado, Val Demings of Florida and Sylvia Garcia of Texas.
