U.S. Rep. Jason Crow, an Aurora Democrat, will help prosecute President Donald Trump in the Senate.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that the freshman congressman will be one of seven impeachment managers when the president’s trial begins next week. Trump was impeached by House Democrats last month for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

“The emphasis is on litigators,” Pelosi said of the impeachment managers. “The emphasis is on comfort level in the courtroom. The emphasis is on making the strongest possible case to protect and defend our Constitution — to seek the truth for the American people.”

Crow was an attorney in Aurora before joining Congress, though he was not a prosecutor. Of the seven House Democrats named as impeachment managers, he’s the only one who doesn’t sit on the Intelligence or Judiciary committees, the two panels that oversaw impeachment in November and December.
