Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., spoke Feb. 11 as House impeachment managers continued to present evidence for why the Senate should convict former President Donald Trump of inciting an insurrection for his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump was impeached by the House in January, while he was still in office.
DeGette said in the wake of the attack, the Capitol complex was turned into a fortress, denying Americans access to their elected representatives. More than “a loss of access,” DeGette said Americans, regardless of politics, are enduring “a dimming of all of our freedom.”
