Watch: House impeachment managers' damning video links Trump's 'Stop the Steal' speech to the Capitol siege
Former President Donald Trump's second impeachment trial got underway on Tuesday, with Trump facing a charge of incitement to insurrection. And House impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), is his opening statement, presented as evidence a video linking Trump's 'Stop the Steal' diatribe to the January 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol Building.
In the video, Trump is seen at a January 6 rally claiming that he really won the 2020 election "by a landslide" and insisting, "this was not a close election." And Trump's speech is followed by footage of the siege of the Capitol.
