House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff will lead the prosecution of President Donald Trump at his impeachment trial in the Senate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday.
Pelosi said Schiff, a Democratic lawmaker from California, would be the House “lead manager” at Trump’s Senate trial expected to begin on Tuesday.
