Impeachment Trial 2, Day 3: Defend The Constitution

Day 3 brings the second day of the House managers' opening arguments and more videos.

After Wednesday's brilliant presentation of the months and hours leading up to the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol, the House impeachment managers will have another 8 hours to tie up any loose ends and drive home just how much Donald Trump's tweets and speeches built the fire that erupted into flame that day,.

For all of us who watched, Wednesday was a descent into the madness of Trump and his supporters. I found it to be incredibly triggering. The audio of those men hunting Nancy Pelosi down will stay with me for a very long time. As a survivor of domestic violence, hearing that violent mob try to lure the Speaker out so they could kill her was particularly chilling.

Watch with us and leave your thoughts in the comments.


The prosecution rested after demolishing the Trump lawyers' First Amendment argument and inextricably linking Trump's words and deeds that day to the blood shed in the Capitol. Rep. Raskin gave everyone a lesson in the Constitution, too. His most memorable quote: "The President cannot impeach Congress but we can impeach the President."

Raskin reached all the way back to 2015 to establish Trump's pattern of encouraging and inciting violence, showing videos of him encouraging his supporters at rallies to violently react to protesters. Here's how he concluded:

After about 4 hours of argument and presentation of evidence, Raskin rested. The defense will present their evidence on Friday. They have 8 hours to do so and 8 hours on Saturday. We will carry live streams each day so be sure to come back to watch together with us.
