President Donald Trump’s 2nd impeachment trial Day 3 will continue at 12pm ET on Feb. 11, 2021. He is accused of “incitement of insurrection” after the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.
House managers have argued that the attack was “predictable” and “foreseeable” because of the former president’s provocations, including tweets and speeches that were displayed as part of their presentation.
Unseen security footage presented by managers also showed the following:
- Vice President Pence and his family being rushed from the Senate chamber
- Rioters chanting and searching for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
- Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) running in the opposite direction of the rioters
