Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., closed the House impeachment managers’ arguments against former President Donald Trump on Feb. 11. Raskin said that the Founding Fathers believed when officials “no longer acted as servants of the people, but as masters of the people, as violators of the people’s rights, [then] that was the time to impeach, remove, convict, disqualify, start all over again.”
“The people are so much greater than the interests of one person,” he continued.
The impeachment managers presented evidence for why the Senate should convict 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.
