Trump who has been called the “chief inciter” is the first former president to face impeachment after leaving office and also the first to face two trials.

More ‘shocking’ videos expected

He is accused of “inciting insurrection.” Senators, many of whom had to flee for safety on the day of the attack, watched the impressive videos of Trump supporters breaking through during the attack.

New videos are expected for later, including some that have not been seen until now.

Prosecutors maintain that Trump’s words are not a simple exercise of freedom of expression but part of “the big lie” about the elections.

Trump took action long before the vote was counted, encouraging his supporters to “stop the theft” even though there was no evidence of large-scale fraud.

“He knew very well what would happen when he took the microphone at the rally outside the White House that day,” almost at the same time that Congress was called to order to certify Biden’s triumph, Democratic Rep. Joe Neguse said.

“It was not a mere speech,” he said.

Trump supporters were prepared and armed, ready to descend on Capitol Hill, Neguse said. “When they heard his speech, they understood his words.”

Security was extremely tight on the Capitol, surrounded by barbed wire and patrolled by members of the National Guard.
