Regarding the causality dilemma

As i understand it, the House has to take a vote before Pelosi can designate Impeachment Managers.

If the Senate trial cannot begin until House Impeachment Managers are designated, is there a way for the Senate to change their rules to circumvent this requirement?

1. The House makes their rules and the Senate makes their rules.

One cannot make rules for the other.

At least, that is my understanding.

2. So what if

the Senate were to change their rule about how they acquire the referral? That is, e.g., that once the House votes on the Articles, the trial is initiated, and that they will wait X number of days for the House to provide designated Managers. Something like that.

It becomes a chicken-and-egg situation, thus my thread title.
