Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi signed the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Wednesday ... with multiple pens.

What happened: Pelosi signed the articles of impeachment late Wednesday, using a swath of different pens to do it.

  • Pelosi handed the pens to the impeachment managers and key committee chairs after she signed the articles.
  • Social media didn’t let the moment go unnoticed.

Why so many?: Per CNN congressional reporter Lauren Fox: “So many pens that Pelosi will sign to officially transmit the articles of impeachment and sign resolution appointing House managers. Why so many? They will be given away to members like House managers as a symbol of today.”

Yes, but: CNN congressional reporter Haley Byrd pointed out that Pelosi uses multiple pens all the time.

  • In 2019, she used multiple pens to sign the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which would stop exports of crowd control products to Hong Kong. Byrd tweeted a video at the time showing Pelosi using multiple pens.
