Aside from Schiff and Nadler, several other names are floating around the caucus as likely candidates.

According to people familiar with the deliberations, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), a senior member of the Judiciary Committee and close Pelosi ally, is also likely to be selected. Lofgren served on the panel during the Clinton impeachment and was a staffer for the committee during the impeachment inquiry into Richard Nixon.

Reps. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), David Cicilline (D-R.I.), Terri Sewell (D-Ala.), Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill.), Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), Jim Himes (D-Conn.) and Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) are also under consideration or have expressed interest in the role either publicly or privately. Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.) is also a likely choice, in part because she serves on both the Intelligence and Judiciary panels. Jeffries is also expected to have a prominent role.

Other lawmakers under consideration are Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), a Judiciary Committee veteran, and Rep. Joe Neguse (D-Colo.), a freshman member of the panel who also serves in leadership.
