TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL LIVE UPDATES: Swalwell shares Capitol footage, makes case against Trump

House impeachment managers lay out their case against Trump in Senate

Senate Judiciary Committee member Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. joins ‘Hannity’ with reaction

Rep. Eric Swalwell’s job as a House impeachment manager is to convince at least two-thirds of the Senate to convict former President Trump of inciting an insurrection.

Swalwell, D-Calif., made a case against former President Trump during the impeachment trial on Wednesday where he played previously unseen security footage from last month’s riot at the Capitol. 

FAST FACTS

    • Other prominent Republicans have scoffed at Swalwell’s role in the proceedings, including Sen. Rand Paul
    • Swalwell argued the insurrection allegations were not simply about the speech Trump gave at a rally shortly before the riot broke out.

    A number of leading Republicans remain unconvinced that Swalwell belongs on the House Intelligence and Homeland Security committees.

    “That’s an interesting choice…somebody who’s part of a Chinese espionage ring effectively, so it’s a provocative choice,” Sen. Josh Hawley, told a pool reporter during a break in the proceedings about Swalwell’s selection as an impeachment manager.
