Speaker Nancy Pelosi has named a Maryland Democrat grieving his son's recent death as leader of the nine House Democrats who would prosecute President Donald Trump during his expected Senate impeachment trial.   

The team includes three women, four people of color and lawmakers from states stretching from Rhode Island to California.   Rep. Jamie Raskin will be lead manager.

The 58-year-old has often been an energetic presence during floor debates and taught constitutional law for 25 years. His 25-year-old son died of suicide on New Year's Eve. 

Other managers will be Reps. Diana DeGette of Colorado, David Cicilline of Rhode Island; Joaquin Castro of Texas, Eric Swalwell of California, Ted Lieu of California, Joe Neguse of Colorado and Madeleine Dean of Pennsylvania and Stacey Plaskett, the Democratic delegate from the Virgin Islands.  

Democrats plan to push an impeachment resolution through the House on Wednesday, with modest GOP support.
