You can observe a lot by watching. On a day when Nancy Pelosi selected a team of seven managers — led by Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler — to prosecute the case against Donald Trump in the Senate, we’ll intersperse today’s lead with some applicable quotes from another famous manager, Yogi Berra. It’s been a month (or a decade in Trump news time) since the House wrapped up its impeachment hearings and today, the articles will finally be walked over to the Senate for a “trial” that will begin sometime next week. (A note to those doing the walking: When you come to a fork in the road, take it.) Today’s divisive remarks from the House floor and the White House maintained a current trend: It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much. While it ain’t over til it’s over, it sure looks unlikely that the Senate will hold a full and fair trial, and without that, America’s future ain’t what it used to be. One side will be offering the facts in the case, the other side will be attacking that side for bringing the impeachment in the first place, and half of America will believe the defendant when he finds creative, new ways to claim, I never said most of the things I said. I could go on, but I need to wrap this up since I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four. Here’s the latest from WaPo and CNN.

+ When the Lev P Breaks: Even as the articles get transferred, the evidence keeps coming in (and keeps getting weirder). “Rudy Giuliani’s fixer, Lev Parnas, turned over documents. They’re very ugly.” Vox: The stunning new texts, documents, and impeachment evidence released by the House, explained.

+ LevMo: “The cache of materials released by House investigators late Tuesday exposed a number of previously unknown details about efforts by Giuliani and his associates to obtain material in Ukraine that would undermine Trump’s Democratic opponents. Their emergence on the eve of the Senate impeachment trial spurred Democrats to renew calls for the White House to turn over documents related to the Ukraine pressure campaign that it has refused to share with Congress.” WaPo: Ukraine prosecutor offered information related to Biden in exchange for ambassador’s ouster.
