  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Impeachment: House Democrats Release New Video from Capitol Riot” – below is their description.

    House Democrats are showing video footage Donald Trump’s supporters knocking down fences and fighting with police and pairing it with audio of officers making radio calls begging for backup.

    Prosecutors at Trump’s impeachment trial on Wednesday played police radio traffic where officers described multiple injured officers, said “they’re throwing metal poles at us” and called for immediate reinforcements.

    After playing increasingly desperate calls from police, Democrats showed footage of rioters breaking down windows with a riot shield to climb into the Capitol.

    A never-before-seen security video from inside the building shows rioters using a wooden beam to break windows and climb into the building.

    The first man climbing into the building was carrying a baseball bat and wearing body armor and is followed by a stream of people climbing through windows.
