US House of Representatives Speaker, Nancy Pelosi has taken a further step in her rapid move to impeach President Donald Trump.
In a sign that the Democrats are moving quickly to impeach the embattled President, the Speaker on Tuesday announced the names of the lawmakers who will serve as impeachment managers, according to CNN.
The lawmakers are tasked with presenting a case to the Senate during an impeachment trial.
Rep. Raskin will head the team and the others are Colorado lawmaker, Diana DeGette, David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Eric Swalwell of California, Joaquin Castro of Texas, Ted Lieu of California, Stacey Plaskett of the US Virgin Islands, Joe Neguse of Colorado, and Madeleine Dean of Pennsylvania..
This is coming after US Vice President, Mike Pence, had in a letter warned Pelosi against the move to impeach President Donald Trump, saying, ” I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our nation or consistent with our Constitution.”
The Vice President warned that the move will do more harm than good to the American people but Pelosi has insisted that Democrats lawmakers must “take action.”
Pelosi, on Monday said that as a “next step,” House Democrats “will move forward with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor.”
