Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “‘I Will Never Forget That Sound,’ Madeleine Dean Says: Impeachment Update” – below is their description.
“I will never forget that sound” of glass breaking outside the House chamber as a mob attempted to break in, Representative Madeleine Dean, one of the House impeachment managers said, choking up several times as she recounted the attack on Jan. 6. She said she frantically called family members before being evacuated with other lawmakers.
The Pennsylvania Democrat said Trump tweeted 34 times on that day in a “relentless” storm of communications falsely calling the November election fraudulent. At a rally, Trump didn’t just tell supporters to “stop the steal,” she said, but “told them exactly what he wanted” — to go the Capitol and “fight like hell or you’re not going to have a country anymore.”
Countering the argument by Trump’s defense team that he never urged violence, she said he told protesters just once that he knew they’d make their case “peacefully and patriotically,” but otherwise used words like “combat” and “fight.”
“Those are not just words of aggression,” she said. “They are words of insurrection.”Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
