The Senate has officially received the articles of impeachment from the House, launching a trial in the Senate that’s scheduled to start on Tuesday.
Representative Adam Schiff was named the lead management prosecutor, guiding a team of seven lawmakers to prosecute the House’s case that President Donald Trump abused his office and obstructed Congress’ probe into what happened. Schiff, as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, led the impeachment investigation into Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to announce an investigation into the family of Joe Biden, even as the president held up military aid to the U.S. ally. Joining Schiff on the prosecution team are representatives Jerrold Nadler, Zoe Lofgren, Val Demings, Hakeem Jeffries, Sylvia Garcia and Jason Crow.
Today on AirTalk, Adam Schiff joins the program to discuss the House’s case and what we can expect from next week’s Senate trial.
