Up next: impeachment manager David Cicilline. He was one of the two Democratic congressmen who began drafting the impeachment measure while sheltering in place during the riot.
Trump, Cicilline says, is not a “randomly selected private citizen” now being censured by lawmakers, but a former president, who is already treated differently as the one-time leader of the nation.
“For four years we trusted him with more power than anyone else on earth,” he continues. “The former president who promised on a Bible to use his power faithfully. He can and should answer for whether he kept that promise while bound to it in office.”
Cicilline adds that the danger of Trump has not “gone by”.
