House managers introduced as evidence previously unseen security footage from Jan. 6 of a pro-Trump mob storming the Capitol as they argued that then-President Donald Trump incited the deadly attack and should be convicted by the Senate at his impeachment trial.

The graphic images showed then-Vice President Mike Pence and his family being rushed from the Senate Chamber, members of the Senate hustled through a hallway and rioters chanting for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). The managers also played audio of police under siege and declaring a riot.

“Senators, you’ve seen all the evidence so far. And this is clear. On January 6th, President Trump left everyone in this Capitol for dead,” said Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.), who described how the commander in chief did not call in the military to aid the overwhelmed police.

Here’s what to know:

  • While the drama unfolds on Capitol Hill, President Biden and Vice President Harris visited the Pentagon on Wednesday to meet with military leaders as they seek to stay focused on the work of the new administration. Biden also announced new sanctions against Myanmar after declaring that the military seizure of power there was a coup.
  • An Atlanta-area prosecutor has opened a criminal investigation into efforts to overturn the 2020 election result in Georgia in the wake of two calls Trump placed to state officials, urging them to reverse Biden’s victory in the state.
  • The impeachment charge against Trump alleges that he “willfully made statements that encouraged — and foreseeably resulted in — imminent lawless action at the Capitol.”
  • Trump’s speech before the riot included no overt calls for his supporters to actually enter the Capitol or resort to violent means. But it included plenty of allusions to the idea that Congress accepting Biden’s victory was a result that must be stopped.
