WASHINGTON (CNN/WNDU) - Some freshmen Democrat congressmen are pushing to have Rep. Justin Amash as the impeachment manager for the trial in the Senate.

Amash is a former Republican who supports impeachment.

The Michigan congressman left the party to become an independent over his criticism of President Donald Trump.

Some believe he could reach conservative voters in a way Democrats can't.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to make a decision next week.
