Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., 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.
Cicilline showed various videos of the pro-Trump mob calling Capitol police officers traitors as they swarmed them. “So much for backing the blue,” he said. He also showed an excerpt from a Buzzfeed News article where a Black Capitol police officer said he was called the n-word 15 times during the insurrection.
