Prosecutors unveil a new security video in the trial, showing the mob of rioters breaking into the Capitol, smashing windows and doors and searching for then-vice president Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
During arguments, impeachment managers showed a flurry of excerpts from former president Trump's speeches in which he told supporters the only way he could lose is if the election results were rigged.
The legal team of former US president Donald Trump says the accusations the Democrats are making are "patently absurd" arguments and "trying to silence a political opponent."
The Democratic legal brief says he bears “unmistakable” blame for actions that threatened the underpinnings of American democracy in the raid at the Capitol, while Trump's legal team claims the trial is unconstitutional.
