Impeachment Q and A

Who is presiding? Chief Justice John Roberts, as outlined in the Constitution.

Who are the jurors? The entire Senate.

What is the House resolution regarding this impeachment?  House Resolution 798, a resolution appointing and authorizing managers of the impeachment trial of Donald John Trump, President of United States.

Who are the impeachment managers? The managers are a diverse group with legal, law enforcement and military experience, including Hakeem Jeffries of New York, Sylvia Garcia of Texas, Val Demings of Florida, Jason Crow of Colorado and Zoe Lofgren of California.  Two are freshmen lawmakers — Crow a former Army Ranger who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, Garcia a former judge in Houston. Demings is the former police chief of Orlando and Jeffries is a lawyer and member of party leadership. Lofgren has the rare credential of having worked on the congressional staff investigation of then-President Richard Nixon’s impeachment — he resigned before the full House voted on the charges — and then being an elected lawmaker during Bill Clinton’s.

What was the vote split to deliver the articles of impeachment? On Wednesday, Jan. 15, the House voted 228-193, almost entirely along party lines, ending a weeks-long delay to deliver the charges with a tally reflecting the nation’s split.
