President Joe Biden said that new footage of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection shown at Wednesday’s Senate impeachment trial may have changed some opinions on whether former President Donald Trump should be convicted.
Biden told reporters Thursday morning that he “didn’t watch any of the hearing live,” but had seen media coverage.
“My guess is some minds may be changed,” he said.
House impeachment managers presented new security footage Wednesday that hadn’t been made public before, which underscored how close rioters got to lawmakers. Rioters got within 100 feet of Vice President Mike Pence and were “just feet” from the Senate chamber, impeachment manager and Del. Stacey Plaskett said Wednesday.
