WASHINGTON – Sylvia Garcia, Congresswoman representing the 29th District of Texas, including much of the North and East sides of Harris County, has been appointed one of seven Impeachment Managers for the upcoming trial of President Trump in the Senate.
The selection was made by House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who took care to have a diverse group of managers. The seven Democratic Congresspersons, most with attorney training and courtroom experience, will act as prosecutors in the ensuing trial which starts next Tuesday in the Senate.
Garcia was elected to the House in 2018, filling the seat previously held by Gene Green.
Garcia was born in south Texas, and educated at Texas Women’s University and Texas Southern University. She is one of two freshman legislators appointed as Impeachment Manager.
Commenting on the impeachment, Garcia said on Twitter “Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy, and he must be held accountable.”
