House prosecutors present evidence in support of convicting Donald Trump. Evidence includes statements from Capitol rioters and from Trump himself, spanning all of 2020.

House impeachment managers on Wednesday argued that former President Donald Trump spent months priming supporters to storm the Capitol on Jan. 6, in a last-ditch effort to overturn the election results after failed attempts to compel local, state and federal law enforcement and election officials to do so.

They also used never-before-seen Capitol security footage of senators, House members and former Vice President Pence fleeing the chambers during the riot to transport lawmakers back to that moment when many of them were fearing for their lives.


The evidence provided proves that, among other things, lawmakers were much closer to encountering the insurrectionists than previously known and that they were operating at Trump’s orders. The evidence also suggests that Trump knew exactly what he was doing when he waited hours to tell them to go home — and that they would have left immediately if he’d spoken sooner.
