    Representative David Cicilline tore into Trump, saying he did nothing to protect lawmakers from the mob at the Capitol for hours and contended that the president was initially “delighted” by the attack.

    “Literally, the president sat delighted, doing nothing to help us,” said Cicilline, one of the House impeachment managers. “The only action that we know that he took, an hour into this attack, was to call Senator Tuberville, to ask him to delay the certification” of Joe Biden’s election victory.

    Hours later, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani continued to urge freshman Republican Senator Tommy Tuberville of Alabama in a voicemail to slow down the counting.

    “His focus was the same goal of the attackers he incited — to stop the certification process and prevent a peaceful transition of power,” Cicilline said. “Donald Trump abdicated his duty to us all. We have to make this right, and you can make it right.”

    Representative Joaquin Castro, another of the House managers, said all Trump had to do was to intervene earlier than he did to say “stop, go home.”

    “Trump left everyone in this Capitol for dead,” Castro said.
