Members of the Senate today were shown a graphic video at the start of former President Trump’s impeachment trial, laden with violence and obscenities shouted by the pro-Trump mob that stormed the Capitol building on Jan. 6.

The video — much of which emerged publicly in the days after the insurrection, and some of which apparently was taken by those participating in the riot — showed Capitol police being overrun by the mob, people using flag staffs to break the building’s windows, a police officer screaming as he was attacked and the gunshot that killed Ashli Babbitt, one of five who died during during the violence.

House impeachment managers presented the footage as a way of walking through the events of Jan. 6.

It was delivered to senators who experienced the Capitol attack firsthand.

 

The video below contains explicit language and violence.
