There are no House managers on the impeachment trial for the president, but House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., advises the White House to use House Reps. Doug Collins, R-Ga., John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.

"These are the individuals I would pull in if I was in the White House, because we have been at this," McCarthy told Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."

"Remember, the Democrats have been trying to impeach the president for 2 1/2 years, changing whatever they could find every step of the way, from the Mueller report, from trying the quid pro quo, to extortion, to bribery, to what they came up with today to articles that reach nowhere. No facts."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has held up sending the articles of impeachment – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress – to the Senate before its declaration of its trial rules, because she wants to know how to assign the House Democrats' impeachment proceeding managers, she said.

McCarthy said President Donald Trump will hire lawyers, but the best managers for his case have already been taking apart the Democrats' case from the beginning.

"But through all those battles, you want people who have been through this, understand it, and have been in those hearings even when they were in the basement," McCarthy said.

Collins is the House Judiciary Ranking Member, whose committee features Jordan and Ratcliffe. Jordan was even temporarily added to the House Intelligence Committee to combat the Democrats' case made by Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.
