    Why would Pelosi appoint anyone for a Senate function? Shouldn't the Senate do the appointing?

      I got to hand it to Pelosi... Either she a political genius or she's a complete raving loon, not sure which. But she's picked seven impeachment "managers" that are a who's who of losers, anti-Trumpers who've called for his impeachment almost from his inauguration, and morons who couldn't think their way out of a wet paper sack.

      I suspect the Senate trail will be a debacle for the Democrats as a result. And, since ones like Schiff and Nadler can't control the questioning by senators watch for them to be flummoxed then motorboat their way through questioning they avoided as chairs of their committees.

      I also am betting McConnell and the Republicans won't allow "new" evidence Schiff says he has on the grounds that he should have done a thorough job to begin with rather than rush the process to an artificial deadline like he and Nadler did.

      It's shaping up to be one hell of a

        Is it illegal to defend Trump? I just want clarification because when someone remotely suggest that Nasty Pelosi hurt her case by delaying after hyperventilating for a month while Shifty Scheif refused to produce a single first hand eye witness but both were telling us it was of up most importance to stop Trump, only to refuse to allow the Senate to do their job, one may have reasonable doubt in her judgement if not her case.

          You can add that Pelosi took all the seriousness out of the articles of impeachment by signing them with like 30+ ceremonial pens on silver trays (the pens have her signature on them) and handing them out to her allies in the House...

            Because I don't support Trump then I am a Democrat? That is illogical and definitely shows that you are a political partisan.

            And what 'facts' have you presented? The only thing that you and others like you here are doing is blindly following Trump no matter what he says and does which is both insane and illogical.

            For the 'hater' here, you have to look no further than the mirror.

                    Something important like a treaty or a trade deal or a new law. Not for what Pelosi has described as "sad" and "solemn." Even CNN was critical of her behavior.

                        The House (Pelosi) has no authority to dictate to the senate how they do anything or vice versa. Any demands by Pelosi that the senate do anything exposes the lie of the impeachment proceedings.
                        If the house had adequate evidence to impeach, why do they need the senate to call more witnesses?
                        If these witnesses were needed, why didn’t Pelosi call them during her proceedings?

                        I would submit that they know the impeachment is BS and they are now making demands of the senate so they can claim republican rigged the result.
                        This is just part of the political campaign for president.

                          Important things like Treaties, Trade Deals, Declaration of War, Declaration of Peace, but this? I thought it was suppose to be a deeply somber occasion which Nancy was very sorry and remorseful over. She looks pretty gleeful.

                          Why do all the pens say Nancy Pelosi, gold gilded pens on silver trays, who paid for all that?

                            It is with high visibility politically charged legislation and such. It isn't in what is supposed to be a somber and serious matter undertaken only as a last resort. That is, you do it when you sign say a major bill that will effect the nation like LBJ when signing into law civil rights legislation. A memorable moment in history so commemorative pens would be expected. Impeachment on the other hand shouldn't be commemorated with gift pens to those who did it... That is, unless it was a political move and you're celebrating your victory by commemorating it...
