Impeachment Manager Quotes Notorious B.I.G. in Call for Trial Witnesses

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), one of seven House managers for President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, cited a lyric from The Notorious B.I.G. on opening day to urge senators to call witnesses to the stand.

Jeffries made the reference Tuesday to the late rapper and fellow Brooklynite while replying to a question from Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, who asked, “Why are we here?”

“We are here, sir, because President Trump abused his power and then he tried to cover it up,” Jeffries said. “And we are here, sir, to follow the facts, follow the law, be guided by the Constitution, and present the truth to the American people. That is why we are here, Mr. Sekulow. And if you don’t know, now you know.”

Jeffries represents the 8th Congressional District of New York, which includes Brooklyn.
