'Solid lineup': Experts praise Pelosi's choice of impeachment managers to prosecute Trump case in Senate
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has just named the impeachment managers who will prosecute the case against President Donald Trump in the U.S. Senate next week, and experts are praising her choices.
The impeachment managers will include some expected names, like Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, and House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries.
Schiff will lead the team.
But other names are generating equal praise.
Rep. Val Demings, a former Chief of the Orlando Police Dept.
Rep. Sylvia Garcia, an attorney and former Texas state Senator and Houston city controller.
Rep. Zoe Lofgren, an attorney who is a veteran of two other impeachments.
Rep. Jason Crow, an attorney and former Army Captain who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
(See below for their biographies.)
