A Black woman is delivering the articles of impeachment. For the white supremacist president. That’s all.

The same people who say Nancy Pelosi should’ve waited longer to begin impeachment proceedings so we could’ve found this stuff out are of of course pretending not to know that moving impeachment forward is what dislodged a lot of the stuff we’re finding out now.

Nancy Pelosi referred to the evidence released on Tuesday regarding Lev Parnas, Rudy Giuliani’s old running buddy, who, Pelosi noted, "was recently photographed with the Republican leader." https://t.co/vLPBULHTxP

House managers will come to the Senate at noon tomorrow to present the articles of impeachment and Chief Justice Roberts will arrive at 2 p.m. to swear in the senators. The trial will begin in earnest on Tuesday.

One former Clinton impeachment manager told me about the immense pressure that they face in the Senate
