Live Updates: Eric Swalwell brings political baggage as impeachment manager


When House Democrats present their case to senators about why they should vote to convict President Trump of the impeachment charge that he incited an insurrection in the Capitol, some say their case may be hampered by the presence of Rep. Eric Swalwell as an impeachment manager.

    • Swalwell most recently has been embroiled in a controversy about whether or not he should retain his seat on the House Intelligence Committee
