Six of the seven impeachment managers selected by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi supported the impeachment of President Donald Trump before the whistleblower complaint was filed.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is set to be the lead manager. The other managers include House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries, Democratic Colorado Rep. Jason Crow, Democratic Florida Rep. Val Demings, Democratic Texas Rep. Sylvia Garcia, and Democratic California Rep. Zoe Lofgren.
Of the seven, there are the six who publicly supported impeaching the president before the whistleblower complaint, regarding the president’s phone call with the president of Ukraine — specifically, whether Trump asked him to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for U.S. military aid, was filed.
Crow: On July 30, before the whistleblower complaint was filed or there was any public knowledge about the president’s call with Ukraine, Crow wrote a post for Medium, saying “must complete the work started by Special Counsel Robert Mueller,” and that there should be an impeachment inquiry into Trump.
Demings: Demings said as early as April, after the Mueller Report, that she wanted to impeach Trump. “We are struggling to justify why we aren’t beginning impeachment proceedings,” she said, according to Politico.
Garcia: On her first chance to vote on impeachment, Garcia voted against tabling a resolution on impeachment. The vote took place on on July 17. The resolution was titled “Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, of high misdemeanors.”
