Hello TPM members and welcome to the weekend.

If you felt like this week brought a whirlwind of news, you’re not alone. After weeks of speculation, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally announced the House’s impeachment managers, and tossed the entire inquiry over the the Senate. We still don’t know how Mitch McConnell’s Senate intends to conduct the impeachment trial, but we should know more by Tuesday. We’ll keep you in the loop.

While Congress ran through the pomp and circumstance surrounding impeachment, our reporters had the privilege of sifting through piles of new documents that indicted Rudy Giuliani pal Lev Parnas gave to the House Intelligence Committee. The new evidence, along with Parnas’ multiple cable news interviews, made lots of news. Here’s a good rundown of one of the consequential bits of news revealed in the trove of documents.

As always, thank you for your support of TPM’s journalism. Here’s what happened in Prime.
