A congressman from Georgia has been named by the White House as one of eight House Republicans supporting President Donald Trump during the Senate impeachment trial that begins Tuesday.

U.S. Rep. Doug Collins tweeted Monday night that he’s “honored” to fight on behalf of the president.

The eight House members aren’t expected to actively participate in arguing the case before the Senate, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The group will work “to combat this hyper-partisan and baseless impeachment,” a White House statement said. The Republican congressmen and women have provided guidance to the White House team throughout this process, according to the statement.
