WATCH: Trump used ‘words of insurrection’ at rally prior to riot, Rep. Dean says

Rep. Madeleine Dean, D-Penn., 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 said Trump said “peace” one time in his speech prior to the Jan. 6 insurrection, but used the word “fight” 20 times. She showed a video of supporters at the rally yelling “storm the Capitol” and “invade the Capitol.”

“These are not only words of aggression, they are words of insurrection,” she said.
