WATCH: Rep. Dean says attack on U.S. Capitol ‘never would have happened but for Donald Trump’

Rep. Madeleine Dean, D-Pa., an impeachment manager, spoke Feb. 10 as House Democrats made their case for why the Senate should convict former President Donald Trump on a charge of inciting insurrection during the attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump was impeached by the House in January, while he was still in office.

Dean recounted how a mob breached the northwest side of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 after Trump “commanded the crowd to fight and marched down Pennsylvania Avenue.” “The truth is, this attack never would have happened but for Donald Trump,” Dean said. “For the first time in more than 200 years, the seat of our government was ransacked on our watch.”
