Share on Facebook

Over a month has passed since the shocking riots at Capitol Hill, but only now has fresh footage emerged – and it is nothing short of horrifying.

Keep scrolling to take a look for yourself…

Now, the events from January 6th still haunt us to this day.

As a joint session of Congress convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden’s election win, lawmakers were forced to shelter in place and evacuate as pro-Trump rioters broke into the U.S Capitol Building.

Breaking windows, doors, and furniture along with chants of “stop the steal!”

And photos showing them looting objects, such as the lectern of U.S. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, quickly started circulating online.

As rioters clashed with the few police officers in presence.

And the world watched on, transfixed, as more and more rioters continued to spill into the Capitol and clash with police.

The former president was repeatedly urged to appear on national television to order his supporters to stand down.

He instead issued a series of half-hearted tweets…

Where he reminded the rioters that the police and law enforcement was “on our side,” and to “remain peaceful.”

Trump’s behavior resulted in him being banned from all social media platforms…

And, as control was regained in the Capitol and the cleanup began, an impeachment investigation was launched into the former president for the role he played in the riots.

It’s been an unbelievable couple of months…

‚ÄčAnd, as the weeks have trickled by, more and more rioters have been named, shamed, and reprimanded for their actions. 

But today, new security footage from inside the Capitol during the attack was presented at Trump’s impeachment trial…

And it is nothing short of harrowing.

A senior aide said of the never-before-seen security footage:

“We will be using footage never seen before that shows a view of the Capitol that is quite extraordinary and a view of the attack that has never been public before. You will see for the first time.”

But, upon seeing the footage, people couldn’t believe what they were seeing…

Senators have also been reacting to the newly surfaced footage.

Senators on both sides of the aisle were visibly affected by what they saw:
“It was really horrifying what happened. You know, I think the House team really put forth a very strong connecting of the dots. I don’t see how you can watch any of this and listen to their presentation and not conclude that Trump bears tremendous responsibility for what happened,” Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, told reporters.

Democrats spent yesterday’s arguments unveiling new footage from the deadly riots…

Including the moment Sen. Mitt Romney was whisked away as the rioters broke in, as shown above.

The moment that the former vice-president, Mike Pence, was escorted away was shown too.

You can watch for yourself above.

In a different video, Sen. Schumer could be seen running away from the violent mob…

Again, you can watch above.

You can see all of the footage below.

Updates on Trump’s impeachment trial will be posted accordingly.
