Pelosi chose seven members of the Intelligence and Judiciary committees, but skipped over Connecticut Rep. Jim Himes, a senior member of the Intelligence Committee.
The holidays came and went but the impeachment standoff between the U.S. House and U.S. Senate continues as Connecticut’s senators join fellow Democrats on insisting there be witnesses at President Donald Trump’s trial.
“I am angry that President Donald Trump has treated his oath and office so disrespectfully that now we must hold him accountable,” said Rep. Jim Himes.
Hayes and Courtney join Reps. John Larson and Rosa DeLauro in publicly stating they will vote to impeach the president.
Reps. Rosa DeLauro and John Larson were the first Connecticut lawmakers to embrace the articles of impeachment unveiled by Democratic leaders Tuesday.
Nancy Pelosi says there’s enough evidence for the House to draw up articles of impeachment, but CT lawmakers say they want to see them before committing to a yes vote.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi touched off the impeachment inquiry this week, but the nation is just at the beginning of a long — and complicated –process.
