Blue dog Democrat Joe Manchin (WV) is asking Democrats to censure President Trump. Here’s the story, via Fox News:

Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, speaking on the Senate floor about the impeachment efforts Monday, urged his colleagues to formally censure President Trump — saying that while the president’s dealings with both Ukraine and Congress were “simply wrong,” he is “struggling” over whether to vote to convict and remove him from office and potentially “tear the country apart.”

At the same time, Manchin also condemned the Republican-controlled Senate for failing to call additional witnesses in the impeachment trial, saying “history will judge the Senate harshly” for failing its constitutional duty to “protect our democracy.”

Democrat Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (NY) was chosen to be a House impeachment manager by Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

On Friday, Jeffries said something so blatantly ignorant about President Trump that he should be removed from his post. It’s really that simple.

From The Hill:

Jeffries stood out during the impeachment trial as someone who launched sharply worded rebukes against the president and his GOP defenders while also eloquently framing the motivation behind Democrats’ decision to push forward with impeachment.


Pelosi’s decision to tap him is a sign that the Speaker trusts Jeffries, who has quickly risen through the ranks to be the No. 5 Democrat after being elected in 2012.
