Impeachment: Democrats Show Weeks of Trump’s Election Lie

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Impeachment: Democrats Show Weeks of Trump’s Election Lie” – below is their description.

Representative Joe Neguse said Trump set the stage for the riot months in advance by telling his supporters, even before the Nov. 3 election, that the only way he could lose is if the election was stolen from him.

Those falsehoods ramped up after Trump lost, as he urged his supporters to “stop the steal” and then, on Jan. 6, to “fight like hell.”

“He knew when he took that podium on that fateful day that those in attendance had heeded his words“ and were ready to fight, Neguse said.

”When in our history has a speech led thousands of people to storm our nation’s capitol with weapons? To scale the walls? Break windows? Kill a Capitol Police Officer?” Neguse asked. “This was not just a speech.”

The Colorado Democrat said the riot came after Trump’s efforts to win in the courts, influence state legislatures and ultimately intimidate his own vice president to overturn the election all failed.

The call to “stop the steal,” Neguse told the senators, was “to stop you. To stop us.”

Neguse also played video footage of people who participated in the riot saying they were in Washington that day because they believed that’s what Trump had called on them to do.
