Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Impeachment: Capitol Mob Sought to Get to Pence and Pelosi, Video Shows” – below is their description.
Rioting Trump supporters sought to get to Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and would have killed them if they could, Delegate Stacey Plaskett of the U.S. Virgin Islands said.
Security footage showed for the first time at the impeachment trial captured Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman luring the mob away from a side room Pence was in and from the Senate chamber. The rioters got as close to 100 feet to the vice president as many chanted, “We want Pence! We want Pence.”
Pence and his family are shown later being escorted out of the room they were in and down a staircase, Pence looking back twice. Goodman also ushered Republican Senator Mitt Romney to safety.
Other attackers shown in the video mockingly called out “where are you, Nancy?” as they sought to seize the speaker.
Senators listened in rapt silence as video and audio clips were played, the sound of glass breaking and attackers banging on doors echoing loudly off the walls and ceiling of the Senate chamber.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
