Rep. Jamie Raskin, the lead impeachment manager, is recounting being at the Capitol on January 6 with his family, all grieving the loss of his son a week before. Shortly after he gave his speech on the floor, the Capitol was attacked while his family was in Hoyer's office
Raskin kept it together while recounting the day, but he started to cry when he said his daughter, who was there, said she didn't want to return to the Capitol ever.
"Of all the terrible brutal things I saw and I heard on that day and since then, that one hit me the hardest..."
Raskin continued: "That and watching someone use an American flag pole, flag still on it, to spear and pummel one of our police officers, ruthlessly, mercilessly, tortured by a pole with a flag on it that he was defending with his very life."

Rep. Jamie Raskin, lead impeachment manager, says if the Senate does not convict Trump: "This would create a brand-new January exception to the Constitution of the United States of America."

Raskin then turns to a video montage of Trump's speech on January 6 calling on his supporters to go to the Capitol, and his supporters descending upon it, some shouting "let's take the Capitol!"
