The Impeachment trial of the former president of the United States of America Donald Trump entered its third day, with the House Democrats prosecuting Donald Trump presented evidence to back-up their theory that the rioters in the Capitol acted on Trump’s “orders”.
The impeachment managers established a clear link between the rioters and Trump’s words which incited them to attack the U.S Capitol on Jan. 6 in an effort to disrupt and cease the certification of Joe Biden as the new-president elect.
They displaced horrifying videos of the rioters and voiced their words as they attacked the Capitol saying that they were acting on behalf of the former president Trump.
The attack on Capitol was the worst since the War of 1812 and the prosecutors highlighted how Trump mobilized extremist groups and planted seed of a culture of violence throughout the years and recent months nearing his era as the president, which led to the groundwork for an insurrection on the Capitol attack by his supporters.
The Rioters took it on social media by posting videos of themselves as they attacked the Capitol insisting that they were doing it all for Trump.
U.S. House lead impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin asked senators jurors to uphold Donald Trump accountable of the U.S. Capitol attack on Jan. 6 by his supporters insisting that democracy is an extremely rare, fragile, precarious, and transitory thing.
He went ahead to lay questions on Trump’s lawyers that he hopes they would answer, the first question being as to why Trump didn’t tell his supporters to end their attack on the Capitol immediately once he learned of it.
The amounting evidence against former president Donald Trump is essentially enough for him to be impeached and disqualified from holding future office, as he cultivated, incited and allowed the insurrection to go on for more than two hours without calling out his supporters to end the attack on U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
In addition, the impeachment managers showed the senators jurors fresh details pertaining the U.S. Capitol attackers, scenes of police officer’s heroism and cries of distress as the invaders penetrated the frontline defense and took over the Capitol.
Inside the Capitol video footage showed how the invaders crashed with the policemen injuring them and the senator jurors could hear distress from the police officers crying out for help as they called for back-up.
In one of the videos, one rioter was seen and heard shouting saying that they were invited there by the president of the United States!
Many of the police officers were injured and five people died in the chaos that continued for more than two hours of the insurrection on the U.S. Capitol.
The impeachment managers closed their arguments insisting that the Senators jurors must hold Donald Trump accountable for the U.S. Capitol attack on Jan. 6 as to prevent other presidents in the future from disagreeing with elections results and inciting their supporters to create chaos.
