“It is their constitutional and patriotic duty to present the case for the President’s impeachment and removal. They will do so guided by their great love of country, determination to protect our democracy and loyalty to our oath to the Constitution,” Pelosi said in a statement.

The impeachment managers are a different set from the ones tapped by Pelosi a year ago for the first impeachment trial.

The House is set to vote Wednesday on an article of impeachment stating that Trump incited an attack on the government by urging a mob of his supporters to try to stop Congress from ratifying Biden’s Electoral College victory.

The House is also expected to pass a resolution on Tuesday night to call for invoking the Constitution’s 25th Amendment. That process would require the vice president and a majority of Trump’s Cabinet to agree that the president should be immediately removed.

However, Vice President Pence — who was targeted last week by some rioters who wanted him hanged for declining to try to interrupt the Electoral College certification — has said he won’t invoke the 25th Amendment with only about a week left in Trump’s term.
