Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Ca., spoke Feb. 10 as House impeachment managers made their case for why the Senate should convict former President Donald Trump on a charge of inciting insurrection for the attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump was impeached by the House in January, while he was still in office.
Lieu said Trump ran out of non-violent ways to hold onto power, and turned to the mob who attacked the Capitol. He noted the many instances in which Trump called out Republican elected officials who stood with voters and did not try to overturn the election results, including vice president Mike Pence, who was a specific target of some of the insurrectionists.
